Comics, statues and Star Wars Shelf Porn from Greece

by  in Comic News Comment

Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn! Today’s shelves come from Chris Makro, a comic artist in Greece, who shows us his collection of both Greek and American comics, statues, artwork and more.

If you’d like to submit your own collection for all the world to see, check out the details and send it our way.

And now here’s Chris …

Hello, my name is Chris Makro and I’m a comics artist/painter from Greece. I recently had the chance to organize the biggest part of my collection in one room that is also my study/workplace, so here it is. I didn’t take detailed photos of the shelves because… well, there would be too many of them 🙂

Outside the entrance – Marvel statues and Disney figures and across them one of the series of Carl Barks paintings that I have made.




We turn left and enter the main room. General view of the room, which is surrounded by libraries and collectibles. In the center you can see my PC and drawing / painting desk.




First wall – library. Left section is all Marvel issues and the right is Marvel at the top shelf, Greek comics at the next two, and other U.S. comics (Image, Dark Horse etc) at the next. In the middle I have some painting books at the top shelf and the others are all Greek comics, both original and U.S. (Marvel mostly) Greek editions. I have several figures inside the door, also.








Second wall – library. At the right section (the one with the doors) I have one row with Greek and one row with U.S. comics. This is where I also keep my Marvel figurines collection. In the middle, I have comics related books, and more Marvel and other U.S. comics. The far left section is for books, mainly art and history. At the top you can also see one of my most recent paintings — Daredevil.







Rest of the place. Some of my most collectible comics are framed on the wall (the frames open, of course). In a prominent space across the room you can see the most prized item in my collection. My big, hyper-realist Darth Vader painting, done with acrylics on canvas. Next to it, the display with the Star Wars models that I built, and at the far left an old 1741 map over a CDs case.









That’s the general idea, I hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks Chris! 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 a little something about your collection
3. Send them to me in an email.

Some additional tips:

1. Although we don’t have a minimum or maximum limit on photos, usually 10-15 should suffice. They also don’t need to be huge, so if you can shrink them down so they are less than 1000 x 1000, that would be great. You can help make your collection look nice by being sure to focus, use the right lighting, dust your shelves beforehand, etc.
2. You can either write something up that’ll appear at the beginning of the post, or you can describe each item. Be sure to indicate where each image should be placed within your write-up, but don’t embed the images into a Word doc. Just put the file name in brackets where you want the image to appear.
3. When sending images using something like YouSendIt or DropBox, please keep in mind that I may not get to your submission for a month or more, so make sure you don’t delete them or that they won’t expire.
4. Please include your name (just your first name is fine) and location with your write-up.
