Welcome to Shelf Porn, your weekly look at a fan’s set-up. Today’s shelves come from Dan in the UK, who shows us his comics, original art and more.

If you’d like to see your collection featured here on Shelf Porn, check out the submission instructions.

And now here’s Dan …

Hi, my name is Dan. I am in the UK, my set up is small because of space issues, but I am pretty proud of what it is so far.

Image 1: this displays my wall art, I have my first prints DKR and a signed Young Avengers on the wall. I also have a great Wonder Woman print and an excellent Supergirl commission.

This shows how my wall looks as well as my comics. I had some boxes custom made to fit on top of the furnishing I have at the moment, I really dislike the traditional longbox, for such an artistic medium I feel like something more suited to display and storage is better.

Some more of my trades and graphic novels as well as my awesome Chog, which has since been joined by my radioactive Chog from SDCC.

The final images show my love of Miss Kitty Pryde, I have Kitty joining the X-Men in issue 139, and Professor Xavier is a Jerk (168) because that cover is, in my opinion, the best Kitty Pryde cover you can find. And I also have my commissioned sketch on the front of Uncanny X-Men #1 (Marvel NOW!) and it’s probably the pride of my collection, if you will excuse the pun. I have also attached a scan of my Supergirl commission so people can see it in all its glory.

I hope you like my set up.

Love the art and the setup

Nice one, Dan. Loved the commission with Brighton Beach in the background, a great idea!

Hi Dan,

Love your collection, really interested where you got the custom made comic display boxes from?? you’re right, they look so much better than longboxes!

Hi guys,

Thank you for the compliments :) I love that commission, it is probably my favourite piece.

I got the boxes from a custom box company called ASC, bought in 25 of them for expansion in the future. I just measured out the width of a back board and added a few millimetres for folded down flaps. You can even choose how long and high you want them to be so they fit on a specific shelf.
