And now let’s hear from Tom …

Hi. I’m Tom, very much a comic book fan.

I’ve been collecting comic books and related paraphernalia since 1971 or so, and I’ve amassed a pretty big collection that I’ve only recently begun to whittle down. It’s slowly getting smaller, but I’ve still got a good way to go. I’m no longer buying single issues, but I do pick up the occasional hardcover or trade paperback. I became a big fan of the Eaglemoss Marvel and DC figurines, and they are visible in the first photograph below. The comic book cover wall decals are some of my favorite decorations because they’re iconic images and they don’t damage the walls. This room is also my home office, but it’s a great place to display my collection. The bulk of the comics are actually in the closet, which is visible in the last three photographs. I’ve picked up some action figures along the way, as well as a few statues, but for the most part, I’ve stopped buying and I’m just enjoying what I have–even as I unload part of it.












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.
