Happy Saturday and welcome to Shelf Porn! Today’s collection features a few trades but mostly comic books, as Brian prefers to collect single issues. “There’s something about the hunt that really gets my heart going. An there’s a lot of things NOT collected,” he said.

If you’d like to see your collection here, you can find details at the end of this post.

And now let’s hear from Brian.

Alas! Here I present my shelf porn! As you can see, I prefer to collect issues rather than trades/omnibuses. There’s something about the hunt that really gets my heart going. An there’s a lot of things NOT collected.

My completed comic runs are shelved on my DIY built pine wood shelves that I planned and put together myself to fit into my reading nook when I moved to my new apartment. I also get to create my own custom designed dust jackets to slip over my runs as you can see with my Mark Waid’s Daredevil issues.

I also have some nice display spots for more of my key/signed/favorite issues to gawk at all the time. As well as using the top of my doorway to display some Jack Kirby covers.

I put my ‘non-super hero’ graphic novels on my regular bookshelf (honestly because I have a hard enough time putting them with everything else) as well as keeping my yet unfinished runs of issues in three short boxes till they get to finally be shelved.

Here’s to my goal of collecting issues #1-300 of The Avengers, Captain America, Daredevil & The Uncanny X-Men in one way or another. (already have DD 131-300) Phew!

Thanks!
Brian

Impressive! Though, looks like you dislike cover blurbs.

The blurbs are actually on the inside tabs of the dust jacket. Sometimes a blurb, sometimes a credits list, and issues list. It varies.

Nice, my eyes are are out of the sockets right now

cool love all that black and white daredevil cover art.

Yeah, the black of the dust jackets makes the place look nice and classy.

I’d really like to have those Moon Knight volumes.

Wow nice collection and such a cool idea with the DIY Dustjackets :D

Hey dude how do you create your personalised dust jackets?

I agree about the hunt. I prefer getting mine bound once complete.

What a brilliant idea! Love the dust jackets. And I, too, am a single-issue collected and know just what you mean about the hunt :-)

This is an awesome idea! Would love to know how you make those dust jackets, I’m having a major longbox clearout and the thought of having some runs on my shelves is very appealing, especially if they can look as good as yours!

Lots of great reading in your collection.

I started a tumblr with my dust jackets. Follow at http://www.coverthosecomics.tumblr.com!
