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.

I’m envious of all the Spirit books. Looks nice.

I’m eyeballing the Starman Omnibus collection. I’m getting rid of a lot of my floppies right now and stocking up on some of those sweet hardbacks.

A nice, clean collection. I really wanted a closer look at your Small DC and Marvel figurines but the pictures are too small :(
Thanks for sharing

Fantastic (and well organized) collection. Thanks for sharing!

love that giant x-men cover on the wall plus that daredevil statue on the top shelve. nice display

Love that Daredevil statue! Where did you get that? I also like your cover decals on the wall. I use the wooden cover recreations in my house. The decals sound nice since they won’t leave holes.

To answer a few of the questions above:

youngbloodsc: My sister-in-law sent me the Daredevil statue from France; she ordered it from a store called L’Imagier. She also sent me the Batman figure next to the TV, but I could’ve gotten that here.

Chris: Love those Spirit Archives books! I need to get the Dark Horse companion book that collects the New Adventures series.

Murch: Glad you think it’s organized! The trades and hardcovers in the closet recently got alphabetized, so I can find things more easily.

Paul: I’m working on getting rid of much of my traditional comic book collection and going to trades and hardcovers. Now that I’ve actually organized the trades and hardcovers, I will start pulling more issues that appear in those books.

Cjorg2: Sorry the figurines came out so small. They were tough to photograph, but they are the Eaglemoss figurines.

demoncat4 and youngbloodsc: The decals are pretty nice. I like having things up that don’t damage the walls.

Also want to say glad to see someone else has all the Spirit Archives as well. I see I wasn’t the only one buying them.

Also, you got the Taschen book? Planning on going after it again now that its being broken down into five volumes with new material in each one?

No, I won’t be getting the smaller Taschen books, but I thought about them!

Really nice collection. I too am shedding single issues in favour of trades.

Where did get the decals. I think I want to get some too after seeing your. How did you out it up so as not to damage your wall?

Nice clean collection. One of the nicer ones lately

Big thumbs up for the Daredevil statue

Very nice collection.

I prefer Omnibus, Hardcover or TPB myself but am far away from having a collection like this.

And this Daredevil? Awesome!

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tom,

What an amazing collection! I saw in one of your responses that you were looking to get rid of some of your traditional single comic books an move more towards trades. Would you be interested in selling?

If so, please let me know.

Thanks and great collection!

A quick question: The covers on the wall are real? They look photoshopped.

@ meow – They are real. Made by Roommates. I got the four above the desk at Walmart, and others came from the Roommates website. I have no talent with Photoshop.

Jonathan – I might be interested.

@ Omar – They are vinyl decals. They peel off the walls with no problems, and they go right back up.

@ Tom – Awesome! My e-mail is polan18@gmail.com and please feel free to let me know what you have for sale and what you’re looking for. Maybe we can work something out.
