Happy Saturday and welcome to Shelf Porn! Today Oliver in New Zealand shares his collection of graphic novels, board games and more, which resides on two shelves at two different houses.
If you’d like to see your collection featured on Robot 6, you can find all the info you need to make it happen at the end of this post.
And now let’s hear from Oliver …
First of all I’m from New Zealand so getting a good range of books isn’t the easiest thing, but luckily I work at a place that gives me some good discounts.
I started on super hero graphic novels but quickly moved to more contemporary works (very few super hero graphic novels remain in my collection)
You have the Sandman to thank for this collection, without those books I don’t think I ever would of fully got into graphic novels.
Also I moved out of a home almost 2 years ago but still haven’t bothered to move one of my book shelves.
So this is the first shelf (at my mothers :P)
Manga, Tezuka’s alternate stuff, Mizuki & Tatsumi.
Highlight is The Private Collection a collection of Victorian (well very old school any way) porn.
Alot of L&R books
The Sandman really got me into comics, and the Black Hole is my favourite graphic novel.
Good old Chester Brown.
Love Seth. The Incal was amazing.
Ok now on to my second shelf. (Which is at mine)
The Harry Potter, GOT & books on the third shelf are my girl friends. Also recently just got in to board games, so I expect that pile to grow. The big books under that bag are a couple of Chris Ware’s books.
Not much to highlight on the other shelves, just started collecting the Complete Crumb books.
And for a bonus, some random art:
Cell signed by Hanna & Barbera.
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
