Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Happy Saturday and welcome to Shelf Porn, where each week we feature one fan’s collection. Today’s shelves come from Larry Fire, editor of The Fire Wire pop culture blog. Larry shares some nice pics of his Batman stuff (including an awesome Rafael Grampa commission), his Stephen King collection, MONDO posters and more.
If you’d like to see your collection right here on Robot 6, you can find complete details at the end of this post.
And now let’s hear from Larry …
My name is Larry Fire and I am the Editor of THE FIRE WIRE, a pop culture blog that specializes in comic books, toys, books, movies, posters, music, etc. You can check it out at firewireblog.com.
I wanted my Southern California office to reflect my varied interests and showcase some of my favorite things.
The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller from 1986 is my favorite graphic novel so I had to pick up this statue of Batman vs. The Joker by Kotobukiya. I was a huge fan of both the original Batman TV show and the Batman Animated series so the 1966 Batmobile and the vinyl Animated Batman figure are prominently displayed.
My Funko Pop! Batman collection guards my graphic novels. Batman is my all-time favorite comic book character as reflected in the art, toys and books in my work space.
I have collected Stephen King books since 1983. He’s my favorite author and I’m also a fan of his son, Joe Hill. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting both authors on numerous occasions and they are wonderful talented friendly people. The bottom shelf of my bookcase is filled with oversized art books featuring the work of Walt Disney, Jack Kirby, Jim Lee, Alex Ross, Todd McFarlane, Charles Schultz and Tim Burton.
