Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn! Typically the collections we showcase here are fairly well-established, submitted by fans who have been growing them for quite awhile. Today’s collection, however, from Trevor in Kentucky, is still in its infancy, as he shows us his graphic novels, toys and more.

If you would like to submit your collection for consideration, please check out the submission guidelines, which I’ve updated recently.

And now here is Trevor …

Hello, my name is Trevor from Kentucky. I was recently browsing through the various Shelf Porn submissions on CBR.com, and thought that I would like to submit some photos of my own. My collection is a small one, and nowhere near as impressive as some of the others that have already been featured. My hope is to add to it as time goes on, however.

This first photo is of some of my favorite graphic novels. There’s quite a few Green Lantern titles in there, some JLA by Grant Morrison, and New 52 Aquaman and Flash, just to name a few. Also pictured is an Aquaman Unlimited figure, as well as two Green Lantern figures – one of Kyle Rayner, and the other is the Ryan Reynolds movie version.

Super Friends

The second photo showcases some items that I have collected for my young son, who just turned 1-year-old. These books and the matching card game will eventually be given to him when he is old enough for them. Notice the Super Friends potty training book!

Aquaman

This photo displays a few of the Aquaman items that I have purchased recently. He is probably my favorite comic book superhero, and I plan on making him my son’s as well. The plush toy will also be something that I give to him when he’s a little older, as well as the story book and small figure. The Hot Wheels car and larger figure will probably remain in their packaging.

Moving along, this photo features two more items that I plan on handing down. The mask and ring set will almost certainly be presented as accessories to a future Halloween costume, and the figure will more than likely be a Christmas or birthday gift at some point down the road.

Spidey

Figures

Finally, I do have some Marvel merchandise on display as well. This photo features a couple of graphic novels – Rick Remender’s Venom vol 1 and Cullen Bunn’s Spider-Man Season One – along with Venom and Spider-Man figures. I have another, more impressive Venom figure from the Spider-Man 3 film. It can be seen in the final photo, along with a Captain America and an Iron Man figure. The Cap, Iron Man and Venom figures in the photo were all purchased recently at an awesome toy store in my hometown called Max Toys and Games. I also purchased the John Stewart Justice League figure and the Super Friends matching card game from there as well. Just wanted to make that plug. Hope it’s okay…

Anyway, thanks for taking a look at my items. I have a small comic book collection that I did not photograph, and I hope to grow that collection as the years go on. Eventually I’d like to have a room dedicated to my books and collectibles where I can maybe frame some special issues for the wall, and display more figures/statues as I get them. It’s kind of a long shot, though, as my wife might not agree with my idea of interior decorating.

Thanks again, and take care!

That’s a nice collection you’ve started. I think it’s great that you’ve got stuff to share with your son. And kudos for the Aquaman figures — poor guy never gets enough respect!

Crack open those figures!

cool start to no doubt be a bigger one later in life but also knowing you will pass it on to the next generation to enjoy when he is old enough

A wonderful start – and as a result, a super modern-looking collection. All the new(ish) stuff looks really, really nice together. I wish you thousands of hours of geeky fun with your son – my daughter and I collect together and it’s one of the greatest parenting experiences a fan can have.

Like John said, crack open the figures. Let your son play with them: he’ll enjoy them more and learn more. It’s also more likely to lead to him being a fan. Things in packaging is for adults, not for kids. They have the imagination to make more of them than we ever could.

Every collection has to start somewhere. Welcome to this extremely fun and satisfying hobby, Trevor. It looks great. My wife and I just had our first child two months ago and I’m doing the same thing for him.

As a side note, I noticed you have a lot of assorted DC books for him. If you’re looking for some Marvel children’s stories as well, I highly recommend the 5-Minute Marvel Stories book. You can pick it up from Amazon for $10. They are some really good introductory stories for a kid to become familiar with some of the more popular Marvel characters. Because, well, after all, you need to keep the kid well-rounded, right? :)

Great collection again. Keep going!

Trevor, what part of Kentucky are you from?

Nice start on your collection. As a soon to be dad it is awesome to see your enthusiasm with sharing comics. I hope to do that myself when my son is born. Also every week so many people are truly positive and encouraging to everyone it is a welcome change to most comment sections.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. I was so excited to see that my submission was published today. Devin, I am in the southeast portion of the state. Not too far from the TN border.

Nice! Mine is also pretty small and It makes me happy that I am not the only one. i HAVE the same Aquaman Unlimited figure, just unpacked.

Love the kids books. Some day I gotta get my collection up on here. Everything will need a good dusting though, and all my marvel legends are in a giant toy box unorganized… Oh well maybe next month.

@Trevor, cool man. I live on the opposite end if the state in western Ky. Right up by Indiana.

Every collection starts somewhere. Very nice.

Just restarting mine also…left the large quantity elsewhere in safe hands. So far a few fill in floppies and ongoing + 3 TPB.
