Come for the Shelf Porn, stay for the massive “to read” pile

Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn, our weekly voyage into the home of a comic fan. Today’s collection comes from Steve Tabala, a digital illustrator who shows us his shelves of comics, trades, statues, art books and more. His “to read” pile looks like he’s building a fort, making my own pile look not quite as intimidating. It’s certainly a good way to spend more than a few Saturday afternoons.

If you’d like to see your shelves featured right here on Robot 6, check out the details here.

And now let’s hear from Steve …

Hi, I’m Steve, I’m a digital illustrator and I’ve been collecting comics for about 20 years. Growing up, I had a couple friends who were into comics, so I had my mom buy my first comic in a local drug store, and would go along to the grocery store to pick up comics off the rack near the registers. Eventually, I would come to find out there was a comic store near where my brother had his guitar lessons, at which point I learned new comics came out weekly. Having loved comics for so long and having a love of art lead to my parents allowing me to attend the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, Inc., and while there my knowledge and love of comics exploded, and I felt I had to own and read as many comics as possible, much to the detriment of my bank account. Unfortunately I can’t show everything I have, because it’s stored away, but these pictures show about 95% of my collection.

The first two pics show the majority of my trades and hardcovers

Here’s a pic of the smaller bookcase to the left of the big three bookcases.

Next up is the majority single issues in boxes with some more books on top.

A closer look at the books and things on top. I love those Little Nemo books.
