Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn, our weekly glance into one fan’s collection. Today’s collection comes from Robert in Canada, who shows us his comics, graphic novels and more.

If you’d like to see your collection featured here on Robot 6, you can find complete details at the end of this post.

And now here’s Robert …

*****

Hello, my name is Robert. I’m a French-Canadian. I started collecting comics around the summer of 1992. To this day, I have exactly 4819 comic books of various sorts (single issues, trade paperbacks, hardcovers). I’m mainly into Marvel super heroes since 73% of my collection comes from this publisher. The remaining 27% consists of titles published by Image, DC, Dark Horse, IDW, Valiant, Harris, Dynamite, Topps, CrossGen, Comico, etc. It’s still growing since I follow from 20 to 30 ongoing series per month. Enjoy the tour!

First stop is a bookshelf of oversized hardcovers displayed with Eaglemoss’s Marvel figurine collection.

I’m a big cosmic fan so I regrouped similar-themed statues with the whole Annihilation saga. It’s a shame the Annihilators: Earthfall mini-series didn’t get the oversized treatment. Other than that, you can see the beginning of my Avengers books.

Avengers-themed figurines along with hardcovers of various characters. In this picture, Valkyrie is protecting Thor with her sword from the wizardry of the Enchantress!

I regrouped Marvel events in chronological order. Same thing for the Marvel Zombies stuff. I hope Infinity War and Infinity Crusade (and the more recent Fear Itself) will also be published in the Omnibus format. On this shelf, you can see some stunning Spider-Man related statues.

My Eaglemoss collection is completed with various villains, Daredevil-centric characters and a few X-Men. On the hardcovers side, Spider-Man, Thanos and Thor are there with the Ultimate line.

DK’s slipcases encyclopedia’s are pretty cool to display.

Continuation of the Ultimate line and beginning of X-Men books.

Look, here comes Batman after all those X-Men related books!

Here are the last oversized hardcovers coming this time from various publishers. Adam Warlock is my favorite character so I had to get the two Marvel Masterworks volumes.

The Marvel Premiere Classic was a pretty cool format of which I have a few books.

It’s kind of fitting that there’s a real spider in this picture, don’t you think? On another note, you can find Abnett & Lanning’s excellent run on the Guardians of the Galaxy along with various Premiere Editions.

This shelf is a good example of some of my favorite characters (Daredevil, Punisher, Spider-Man), writers (Jason Aaron, Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Millar) or artists (Frank Cho, Steve Dillon, Terry Dodson, Cary Nord, Esad Ribic, John Romita Jr., Mark Texeira).

thanks.

Love your collection. Very clean and well organized. Hard covers on a shelf just look right ya know!!

omg. That collection is fantastic. Green with Envy!!!

nice collection espically love how the eglemoss figures match the theme of the shelves.

HA! J’aurais jamais cru voir Zébulon, KMFDM et le Pacte des Loups réunnis sur CBR.
Belle collection. Très bien organisé. Il va falloir que je trouve ce HC de Trouble.

Wow! Those Eaglemoss figures are so nice! Great collection from start to finish.

Oh wow. Beautiful job with the collection, Robert. I just recently sold off a good chunk of my Eaglemoss figurines to a local shop (I only kept my favorites). I really wish I would have seen what you did with your collection before I did. Kudos!

Wow! That is a great collection and a very clean looking set up, I quite like it!

So many Wows already…but WOW!

Beautiful!

Amazing. Very nice collection.

Wowwee that is some collection, so neat

Bonjour from Canada! Awesome collection of trades… so glad to see another industrial fan on here who loves KMFDM too!

Excellent collection. Extra props for the Brotherhood of the Wolf DVD set!

Chida colección

Thanks for all the kind words everyone! I was happy to share my collection and the way I organized it.

Alex, good luck with the Eaglemoss figurines, they are pretty rare now. Sorry if I make you spend too much money!

Alex G, je voulais aussi montrer la diversité de ce que j’apprécie en pensant aux quelques personnes qui allaient connaître ces références. Étant bilingue, je me suis toujours trouvé chanceux d’être dans une situation où je peux autant apprécier ce qui se fait en Amérique du Nord et en Europe.

Mike, I don’t know for you, but everytime I sell something, I generally regret it a few years afterwards. I try to be more selective so that I only have stuff that I want to keep. In that vein, I only bought the Eaglemoss figurines that I really liked.

Bonjour Andrew! It’s nice to know you’re also a fan of industrial music and KMFDM!

Jjwspider, i’m glad you liked the Brotherhood of the Wolf DVD set!

Muchas gracias Roldan!

Stunning. Sometimes, masses of trade paperbacks come off looking like a story – this doesn’t; it’s every inch a library and a warm, inviting space to sit down and read some great stories. Well done!

A very indiscriminating accumulation, with a couple of jewels here and there.

Sean Fester, thanks for the positive comment! The pleasure of reading is the basis of all this, so I put in place a cool spot to do that.

Guido Cuadros, unless I’m misinterpreting, do you realize that you always post some condescending remarks on this blog? It’s kind of dull. A constructive response would have been to mention the jewels in your eyes that are present in my collection and to make some reading suggestions based on those. Why don’t you try that instead?

Sean Fewster, I just realized I misspelled your family name in my previous response. Sorry about that.

Very nice . Super

Very nice. I’ll get some books someday. Though I think I’ll go mostly digital as time goes on.

Thanks for the comments John and Hypestyle!

For my part, digital comics don’t interest me. I don’t have a cell phone or a tablet and I consider that I already spend too much time behind a computer. Print is the way to go for me!

Robert is this your collection? I must add you on Facebook! You and I have so many of the same books.

This is a very beautiful collection. Incredibly organized, and all those hardcovers look wonderful together! And all those oversized HCs! WOW! Congratulations! It is a wonderful collection indeed!

Very impressive collection Robert, the best, most thorough and cleanest collection I have seen……
You have more than my local comic book shop!!
Question; have you read everything?

Jarrod, if you go to the Facebook page of Comic Book Resources, you will find me answering a few questions in the status concerning this entry.

Roberto Macedo Alves, thank you for your comments! Oversized hardcovers are my favorites.

Robert Chapman, thank you for the nice comments! To this day, I have read all of the single issues and about 3/4 of the hardcovers and trade paperbacks.

Very nice.

This is one the best collections I have seen, a lot of those HC are out of print and near impossible to find. Nicely organized and very clean.

Thank you for the positive comments Madcougar92 and The FN Man.

One hardcover that is hard to find is Avengers Assemble, vol. 2. I found the other volumes but this one is really rare. I’m still looking for it. It was the same thing with Daredevil, vol. 2 (the first one collecting the run by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev).
