Thanks Theo! 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.

Greece is NOT an island. It has many, but the main part isn’t an island.

Nice mixed collection there; great bookshelf!

nice collection epsically those signed copies of sandman

Impressive collection, though I’ve not the slightest sense of its organization. How do you find anything?

Exactly!

Dammit Theo – spoiler alert!!! I haven’t seen that episode of Walking Dead yet!!!! : )

Seriously though, nice collection. I did not know there was a Mephisto action figure out there! It will be mine! Then I can reenact the Infinity Gauntlet in my man cave!

I would have like some more narration though. I’m assuming that the photocopy boxes are full of comics. I do the exact same thing – a lot cheaper than buying those long boxes. Still though, a light layer of spray paint would make them look better. I tend to go for black myself.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you everybody. Yes the photocopy boxes are way better than any regular comic book boxes. Cheaper and smaller, able to move them easier. There is a personal way of organization, and probably i am the only one to understand it. I have about 30.000 comic books, the 5.000-6.000 of them are Greek, very few by Greek artists, and most of them American and European translated into Greek. Disney comics are very popular here, for about 45 years, with second place MARVEL COMICS, and third place French. Next time I’ll send John Perkin some pictures of furniture dressed with comic pages. Something we did at our school :)

Hi! Nice collection. Can you please tell me what that thick 2000AD book next to your Walking Dead HC’s is? I haven’t seen that on before and can’t read the title. Also, what’s the Thrill Power collection a few books down from it? Thanks!!

Very nice. I am jealous. That’s an extensive collection… I thought the Greek economy was on the skids!

Very nice collection Thedoros!! so many Hardcovers.Paperbacks,comics figures everything is great i’m a collector too i collect comics and figures. I am 28 years old i am from Thessaloniki and i start collecting comics at the age of 12.

Very nice!

Awesome collection!!
You know you’ve been looking at these for a while when you think “Wow thats some sturdy shelves he’s got there , not bending at all” :)

The collection is a product of 30 years of buying comics. So it was not made the last 3 bad years of Greek Economy. In this hobby you have to be patient. You can find good prices if you are looking for them, and not accept every offer you see in front of you. Dig and be patient. You need time.

The Thrill Power HC is a collection of essays about the history of 2000AD, published in various Rebellion magazines. The next one is a hardcover collection of The Best of 2000 AD. You can find it in Amazon or Bookdepository.co.uk. The shelves are from IKEA, affordable and decent I think.

Feel free to visit our big site about Greek comics in http://www.greekcomics.gr You have to sing up, and you can find a lot of foreign magazines translated from 1930 to 2013.

The site is not for selling comics but for information and having fun. Just like this incredible http://www.comicbookresources.com :D

Makes sense that you would organize your collection to your personal style. Your the only one who’s going to use it anyway! One question regarding the photocopy boxes: aren’t they too wide? I would imagine there’s too much room to one side. Nice collection by the way.

@lol

Everyone is free to say his opinion, right? In this case, a mistake was corrected because of the above comment.

The photocopy boxes as they are are way big. That’s why I deconstruct them, cut them and use crystal wood glue (it’s cheaper and you can buy in great amounts) to fix them smaller. I hope I gave enough information, my english are not good enough to talk about that kind of stuff.

While I do love this ongoing feature… I cringe when I see people putting their heavy hardcovers (mainly Marvel Omnibuses) so high up. If they fall from those heights, they can get serious spinal damage. Being in Seattle where we’re due for an Earthquake, mine are on bottom shelves.
