Hello and welcome once again to Shelf Porn, our weekly peek at someone’s collection. Today we visit the home and shelves of Matt Page, who runs the Galactus website whencallsgalactus.com. It includes comics, original art, action figures and, oh yes, lots of Galactus.

If you’d like to submit your own collection to this feature, you can find the details at the end of this post.

And now let’s hear from Matt …

*****

Hi. My name is Matt Page and I’ve been collecting comics and figures for about seven years now. I have a somewhat eclectic collection, most of which is on display in my little sub-basement home office.

So I’ll start with a quick look around my humble man cave and then get some close-ups.

I don’t have a lot of original art, but I am very pleased with the few pieces I do have. Here I have an original Powers (my favorite book) page by Michael Avon Oeming sandwiched between two beautiful pieces by Brian Churilla.

I am not really a completist, but if it’s a character I like, it has a decent sculpt/paint job, and it fits in my budget, I’ll find room for it somewhere in my collection.

nice collection espicaly love the galactus and silver surfer novel signed by stan the legend lee. not to mention the way you have your figures displayed in theme groups

I’d love to hear more about those custom-hardbound collections you have on your shelf with The Sentry, Marvel’s Civil War, and what appears to be some F4 comics. I’m assuming those are floppies (single issues) that you had bound together. How did you go about that and how did it work out?

Thanks Demoncat.

Yeah Wesley, those are custom bound books made from floppies and trades. I basically got the stories in the order I wanted, removed the staples and back covers, then just looked up binderies in town (I am in Salt Lake). The second bindery I called was willing to help me. They put them together for $35 a piece or when I do multiples in a set, they give me a discount per book. It was super scary defacing the books the first time, but I love the finished product.

I have a set of Sentry stories, a Civil War set, Ultimate FF, miscellaneous FF, and Marvel Knights 4. It’s kind of annoying to have the ads, but for example in the case of the Civil War set, it’s nice to read only the crossover stories I like and in an order that makes sense.

Nice collection. Curious, what is the story with the two dolls next to your computer and the other on the batmobile table? They seem out of place with the rest of the collection so I figured I would ask.

My question is with a collection this good, do you still hunger?

Trainspotting & Twilight Sad?

Got to be Scottish.
