Happy Saturday and welcome to Shelf Porn. Today’s shelves come from Dan in Gotham City, as he shares his DC Comics-themed collection of toys, statues and other good stuff.
If you’d like to see your collection right here on Robot 6, you can find all the details on how to live that dream at the end of this post.
And now let’s hear from Dan …
I started out in 1969 watching I guess the third season of the Batman TV show with my dad in his big green leather chair. I still have the original soundtrack album (not my dad or his chair). I always loved Batman, I personally bought the mid-70s Jim Aparo Brave and the Bold and the Justice League of America. The darker batman of Neal Adams and Frank Miller came later. I carted around my box of comics for years until a mall card show introduced me to the ’90s fad of SkyBox DC cards and specifically Scott Hampton’s PAINTED work on Batman.

If you’d like to see your collection featured here on Robot 6, here’s what you need to do:
1. Take some photos and save them as jpgs.
2. Write up a little something about your collection.
3. Send them to me in an email. Please put the text into an email and attach the images as separate files; don’t embed them into a Word doc. Uploading them to Dropbox or a similar service also works.
