Some ‘Flash’-y New York Shelf Porn from a Wally West fan

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 up 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.
5. There’s no need to send an inquiry about whether or not we want to feature your collection; that’ll just slow the process down. Send your full submission, and if I have any questions or issues I’ll get back to you. Right now we have a pretty deep backlog of submissions, so if you don’t see your collection right away, don’t despair — it’s coming!

Wonderful spread! Wally West will always be the Flash for me.

Where did you get those modular boxes. Living on the west coast out in silicon valley so I have a bit more space, but it is cramped with the three kids and dog. The boxes are rad!

nice displays love all the wally west flash love including that homer as flash .

Nice job fitting all of Cerebus in the neat little box :)

Fantastic spread! Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the comments! The boxes came from here: http://www.yliving.com/modern-shelving-bookcases.html

I want to know more about that jam art…

The jam art features Flash artists Greg LaRocque, Mike Wieringo, Craig Roussaeu, Pop Mhan, and Carmine Infantino, and is also signed by Mark Waid.

So cool.

Couldn’t do this is L.A. Flash books can’t outrace earthquakes.

Where did you get the Gandhi merchandise? Very, very cool stuffed toy!

awesome collection.
not sure how you can find stuff though.
how are they organised?

I’m old skool, but am starting to buy more TPBs, for the space-saving. Wally West is my Flash too. I don’t know why comics have to keep resurrecting and retconning. Pass the damn torch…or baton, to use a runner analogy!

Yay for Very Short Introductions!

That piece of JAM ART is AWESOME!

The Gandhi was from here, along with many others. If you ever wanted to act out a conversation (or battle?) between Edgar Allen Poe and Ganesh, this is your chance. http://www.philosophersguild.com/Dolls/

As for organization, all the books are organized into sections (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, computers, etc) but I’ll admit that within each section it’s a little random. I know where everything is, though.

That is the home of a well-rounded individual.Not only a great collection of comics related material but classic literature and books on spirituality as well. Hope your musical library is as diverse. Your kids are going to be special people growing up in that environment..

Love the books and the boxes. If I came round, I would never leave, so many of my favourites there.
Sandman , strangers in paradise etc.
Wally west made the flash, please give him his own book please.

Love those boxes, but that makeshift shelf next to the crib scares me. Doesn’t look occupied at the moment, though. Nice spread!

Sweet collection! I really like the way your shelves define your apartment. But it seems that there’s not much there for horizontal support. Do those cubes have some way to latch onto adjacent lateral cubes? I’d just be worried about bumping into them and having a stack tip over :/

Thanks for the concern – the boxes are actually pretty sturdy because they’re full, if that makes sense. None have ever fallen. But we’re going to be attaching them to the wall in the next few months, before our little one gets mobile. :)
