Thought it was about time I showed off my Shelf Porn!

So here’s my collection from London UK…

I’ve been collecting since around the time of Rachel Summers gaining the mantle of Phoenix so have always had a thing for that that era of the X-men, though I got brought back into the DCUniverse through Batman The Animated Series and the Justice League International

The Bwahahahah league has always held a soft spot for me, only surpassed by the Birds of Prey (pre-Nu52) so they do tend to appear around the place- long term I’d love some original JLI art or Birds of Prey art from Gail Simones first run…

I got rid of my 20 long boxes about 18 months ago (massive clear out- thank-you ebay!) and went digital and trade for a lot of stuff, tending to get hardbacks where i really like something, or some of the older pre-nu52 era DC trades

I Love the Marvel omnibuses and oversized hard and softbacks, and am using them to get runs of issues I’ve not read in ages.

Merchandise tends to have themes (such as the Doctor Who and JLi and JSA figures) as well as statues of characters or designes i really like, though who can resist the SBFFs and a soft toy Ace and Krypto!

My first big purchase was the fully signed S1 Lost cast photo, which I had shipped from Vegas to London back when the show was on the top of its game, though I do like the Larocca X-men/Women prints

the T-shirt was from Supernova 2001, which was a star Trek convention I helped run, you can’t see it in the pic, but its signed by all the guests who were there at the time.

I’m moving soon, so a lot of this will find itself re-prioritised and shifted around, but I’m looking forwards to finding new spots for all the art and figures…

Cheers

Christian

One of the best set of tpb and hardcovers. I love seeing a wide range of DC,Marvel and Image. Good job looks great.

Damn, Chris! You are AWESOME! Impressive collection!

So does that mean you have zero periodical comics? In any case, your collection of hardcovers and soft backs looks really neat and organized.

Dammit Chris, did you rob a comic book store?
The amount of TPB/hardcovers you have is insane!

Thanks guys!
Eric, I have one long box on floppies with sissies that have emotional links for me, but I sold about 29 long boxes on ebay when the nu52 started, and replaced with digital or trades to reclaim the space.

That’s the biggest collection of trades and hardcovers I’ve ever seen. Nicely done!

Well done Christian lad……wonderful collection…..just makes me want to Photograph mine and get it onto Shelf Porn…..i’m from up north in Middlesbrough Christian..so same island…….i’m lucky enough to have a room to myself….but it needs to be organized like yours…..Well done……..( how to manage the dust )………regards….Steve Morgan

Nice shelf porn

Love the Doctor Who and JLI figures! Nice display!

Love the signed Lost piece.

Great collection, the one book that I love the most in there is the War of Kings HC. I fought long and hard to find that one. Again great collection!

JLI FTW, bwahahaha
