Saturday Shelf Porn

Welcome once again to Shelf Porn, where fans show off their collections of comics, graphic novels and the like. Today’s Shelf Porn was submitted by Fritz Park from Seoul, Korea, whose collection is currently on display at a local bookstore.

If you’d like to submit your own Shelf Porn, we could certainly use it — just send a write-ups and jpgs to jkparkin@yahoo.com.

And now here’s Fritz.

Fritz here. Just thought I’d share these images of my comics on display at a local bookstore in Seoul, Korea. Its a new bookstore that aims to show different kinds of books, graphic novels being one of them. The bookstore is called Thanks Books, located in the hippest part of Seoul.



All the major titles have been translated into Korean, The Dark Knight Returns, Batman Year One, Killing Joke, From Hell, Watchmen etc. If you look closely you can see foreign lettering… that’s Korean!





Also, I was able to show A, B, C, D, E of Todd Klein’s lettering series posters. Specifically, Alphabets of Desire with Alan Moore, Before You Read This with Neil Gaiman, Comic Book Dreams with Alex Ross, Drawing the Sword with JH Williams III and Each Beast at the Feast with Mark Buckingham. All nicely framed and on display on the counter!




With all the major superheroes hitting the big screens all over the world there is ALOT of interest in American comics here in Korea! We’re having a Comics Trading Day on the 14th of May and should have a big crowd of comics enthusiasts!
