Send Us Your Shelf Porn

by  in Comic News Comment

This week on Send Us Your Shelf Porn, we’re getting a glimpse at a rather focused collection, with the potential to add to it via the online suggestion box that is our good ole comments section.

Today’s photos hail from one Justin Gonzalez in Brooklyn, NY. As the above photo suggests, Justin is a big Batman fan and has structured his budding collection around the caped crusader. He’s on the lookout for additions though, so if you know of a stellar Batman book that isn’t on these shelves, let him know in the comments below.

And don’t forget to let me know about your shelf porn. If you’ve got a stellar, or even mediocre collection you’d like to share, don’t be shy! Snap some pics and send them to me via cmautnerATcomcastDOTnet.

And now here’s the part where I let Justin take over …

This is my small, but very theme oriented shelf. I am only 20 years old. I live in Brooklyn, New York, and there isn’t much in the way of “geek” factor here. But I do plan on vastly growing this collection by the end of summer. I just started my shelf, and think it is pretty good for now. The obvious theme is Batman (duh). I threw some movies in there just so I don’t feel like a loser for having an empty shelf. But I look at it as half full. The centerpiece is the picture of my wife and I, although it was not my idea, it was my wife’s. But I think that it makes it nice, especially with the Joker, and Harley Quinn Heroclix in front of the picture.

I tried to separate the villains and heroes on the top, but it was a bit one sided. The books are the basics. Absolute Dark Knight, Hush, and Kingdom Come. Arkham Asylum, Joker. Long Halloween, etc. etc. Batman R.I.P. isn”t prominently displayed because I liked the arc per se, but it’s just a badass pic. (Along with Killing Joke, which helps balance the Hero and Villain sides.) Perhaps my favorite piece there would have to be the Nightwing figure, but the complete B:TAS is a very close second.

I hope that you like it, and by all means, if there are any tips on what I should get to make it a more complete, kickassery version, do tell.
