Thanks Bill! If you’d like to see your collection featured here on Robot 6, here’s what you need to do:

1. Take some photos and save them as jpgs.
2. Write a little something about your collection
3. Send them to me in an email.

Some additional tips:

1. Although we don’t have a minimum or maximum limit on photos, usually 10-15 should suffice. They also don’t need to be huge, so if you can shrink them down so they are less than 1000 x 1000, that would be great. You can help make your collection look nice by being sure to focus, use the right lighting, dust your shelves beforehand, etc.
2. You can either write something up that’ll appear at the beginning of the post, or you can describe each item. Be sure to indicate where each image should be placed within your write-up, but don’t embed the images into a Word doc. Just put the file name in brackets where you want the image to appear.
3. When sending images using something like YouSendIt or DropBox, please keep in mind that I may not get to your submission for a month or more, so make sure you don’t delete them or that they won’t expire.
4. Please include your name (just your first name is fine) and location with your write-up.

Nice artwork.

Love the artwork on the wall! Also I like that shelf that holds the comic boxes – great for easy access I’m sure and makes it all look nicely organized.

Wonderful collection, esp., the JB artwork.! Can you please explain what happened to JB’s style? It has steadily becoming less attractive and scratchy. Is this due to age, laziness or inker?

Very nice. Bill is a great guy and has an incredible collection. I’m jealous of some of the Galactus art he has from John Byrne.

Love the collection, the artwork is beautiful. I love that you’ve picked a different character to follow. Galactus is a great one. We’ve got to see a copy of FF #48 on your shelf next time!
As an aside I appreciate the new England Patriots hats.

So do you like this Galactus fella or something? :p

Impressive collection.
What are those huge Essential John Byrne books?

I love the character heads from #118. What a great images with the “still” price and everything. I loved Comics in the 70s and 80s that had logos like that. I always liked when the heads changed to the current casts.

They look like custom bound hardcover collections, as there’s no publishers die stamp on the spine.
Really great collection, love the framed covers next to the original artwork. Thanks for sharing.

That’s an amazing collection!

Out of curiosity, what’s the thick DC book with the Darwyn Cooke Wonder Woman? Is it that Elseworlds?

love the art work and also having every Galactus figure ever made all post on one shelf

Great Collection. I love the comic book storage shelves. Did you build those or buy? What are the dimensions? Id love to build something like that for my Man cave.

Thanks

Very nice collection. The artwork is particularly impressive. Byrne is still one of the greats, and his original art is particularly attractive.

WOW.

I was never a John Byrne guy but that’s a heck of a collection there.

UnravThreads:

That’s the ABSOLUTE edition of DC: THE NEW FRONTIER.

Can’t possibly recommend that book enough. Wonderful stuff.

you have a really awesome room bro you rule……

John Byrne is one of my top 5 favorite artists of all time. His current IDW series “The High Ways” is pretty darned awesome.

Thanks for sharing this amazing collection!

OK. I already loved your collection. But then you sealed it with the Legos and long boxes – now that’s a true collector after my own heart

Woah ! An amazing collection ! Very nice art work ! And I agree : Galactus is a great great great character !

Thanks for the information, Mike!

Thanks guys!
IAM FeAR::What are those huge Essential John Byrne books?
Those are ALL the John Byrne comics from his first published story to the end of his FF run.
UnravThreads:: what’s the thick DC book with the Darwyn Cooke Wonder Woman? Is it that Elseworlds?
Mikey called it…That’s the ABSOLUTE edition of DC: THE NEW FRONTIER.
Rich Hurley:: I love the comic book storage shelves. Did you build those or buy?
Yup, custom built! as to the mesurments….I kind of winged it.

Again, thanks for all the comments guys! This is a great site!

Guess the comics in the boxes are either Galactus or John Byrne books. It was nice to see some 70s trade paperbacks on the shelf. Growing up in this era, paperbacks, reprints or omnibuses were limited to not existing. Kudos to Marvel, DC and other companies for making key books available to all to enjoy.

Great shelf porn!! What a great set up!!

John Byrne’s old stuff was so much better -he really rushes his work these days to make a quick buck – a real shame. No wonder his commission sales dried up! How the might have fallen!!

WOW..amazing collection. Galactus is a favorite of mine too.

In regards to John Byrne..he really has lost whatever talent he once had. Marvel and DC won’t give him any work so he is stuck doing 3rd tier licensed books that do not sell and posting cheap Star Trek fanfic on his web forum. Pretty sad.

Or maybe John Byrne refuses to work for both Marvel and DC and is doing what he wants to do, eh?

Rick Dee – sure! Maybe Byrne wants to toil in obscurity, produce low selling books that no one cares and write bad Star Trel fanfic ! That makes sense.

Stop drinking the kook aid buddy! Byrne would crawl on his belly to get a fill in issue at DC or marvel – but they won’t return his calls so for now he stays home alone and sobs himself to sleep

Al Cook — Would you work for someone who has Dan DiDio’s erratic track record? How many times did DiDio say something and then come out with something else entirely? If Byrne did that, that would be crawling on his belly.

Just a quick note to say that Bill Roberge is a heck of a nice guy, and a heads up to anyone who might be thinking that the “Al Cook” who has posted here is the same one who used to post on the JBF: he isn’t. I am.

Have a nice evening, folks.

Fantastic collection! You are rekindling the old love I had for John Byrne’s work.

I have to ask what that Last Galactus Story omnibus is in the 4th picture?
