Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn! Today’s shelves come from Chris Makro, a comic artist in Greece, who shows us his collection of both Greek and American comics, statues, artwork and more.

If you’d like to submit your own collection for all the world to see, check out the details and send it our way.

And now here’s Chris …

Hello, my name is Chris Makro and I’m a comics artist/painter from Greece. I recently had the chance to organize the biggest part of my collection in one room that is also my study/workplace, so here it is. I didn’t take detailed photos of the shelves because… well, there would be too many of them :)

Outside the entrance – Marvel statues and Disney figures and across them one of the series of Carl Barks paintings that I have made.

We turn left and enter the main room. General view of the room, which is surrounded by libraries and collectibles. In the center you can see my PC and drawing / painting desk.

First wall – library. Left section is all Marvel issues and the right is Marvel at the top shelf, Greek comics at the next two, and other U.S. comics (Image, Dark Horse etc) at the next. In the middle I have some painting books at the top shelf and the others are all Greek comics, both original and U.S. (Marvel mostly) Greek editions. I have several figures inside the door, also.

I like how it is organized.

nice espically love all the disney art. including the carl barks paintings

I’ll say the same thing I think every time I look at one of these Shelf Porn articles:

What that looks like there is a really good start.

Bravo Chris!!

Very nicely organised collection. Makes me think that I may have too much in my own cave, but I can’t bring myself to put stuff in storage! I also like your photos – easy to tell you’re an artist as they are very nice. Lastly I like the fact that you display your own art instead of other comic artists. I think there are a lot more artists here (like myself) who need to do that instead of just putting up comic art or posters.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you all.
Jamie, I like to have things organised – it’s very nice to sit at my desk and be able to look at my comics, and to know where everything is. Labels with issue numbers are also essential :)
And since I can make my own original art, it’s better than posters etc – more is to come!

Being a Greek American, I am extremely proud to see a collection from Greece (the first positive news to come from there in quite a while)!!

Sinharitiria, Christo! Bravo! Kai Christos Anesti!

Nice collection, well organized! nice to see comic collectors from mother Greece! Was all the wall art yours?

Very impressive!

Great, well organized collection. Fantastic job on the paintings as well!

awesome collection…curious tho, are those display cases from ikea??

Thanks everybody, comics collectors are everywhere hehehe!
Wall art is all mine and I have lots to display in the future, I’m still organizing stuff here…
And the display cases are indeed from IKEA, the Detolf ones.

An excellent and organized collection, excellent original art, and certainly good sense of decoration. It looks like a very professional workplace.

a bit reserved…less is always less,…more is ALWAYS more.

A nice Randy Bowen Medusa statue…you have good taste!!!

I’m glad you all like my art (besides the comics collection)!
You can check my blog (click on my name) for more, or visit my deviantart account at http://lord-makro.deviantart.com/
By the way – I’m also open for commisions, fully painted or not :D

TED, this Medusa statue is one of my favorites – the way she floats on her hair is amazing!

A very impressive balance between functional, accessible and display(ed). I like that all the amazing pieces you own don’t overwhelm the room but rather complement the blank space and make the entire place feel roomy and spacious. A very neat trick to have pulled off – bravo!

Great collection. For my taste its a little too neat and organized. I like it a little more punk rock. Other than that, great stuff.
I need to get myself a camera worth a damn and make a few photos of my livingroom for shelf porn. Would love to hear some thoughts on my collection.

Damn…this really makes me want to organize my own comics (currently lying in piles/boxes in storage).

What kind of files/folders are you using for the singles? I would love to set up something similar to make storage of single issues a bit more organized.

Hi Zeb, I use classic magazine boxes, each fits about 30 or 40 issues (40 is for modern comics with thin illustration paper – 30 for older). Of course it depends if you are going to use backing boards or not…

Thanks Sean, I think you got the feeling I wanted to achieve with my collection room :)

Fantastic Chris!!! The Disney in the mix makes it seem very well balanced. imo

Hey Chris!! Awesome collection! Do you store each comic with a backing card so it doesn’t bend or do the pressure they make against each other in the magazine binders is enough? I got the binders but I’m afraid my comics might get curvy with time and then if I use backings I fear I might lose storing space

Hi Parri, I usually don’t use backing boards, my comics are tight enough as they are stored. However there are exeptions, mostly for older and more collectible issues… :)
