Send Us Your Shelf Porn

Welcome to yet another edition of Send Us Your Shelf Porn, where you email us pictures of your bookshelves and we post them here for everyone else to gawk at.

This week we’re joined by our very own Matthew Maxwell, whom regular Robot 6 readers will recognize as the author of Strangeways: The Thirsty, which is being serialized on this very blog.

So without any further delay, let’s take a look at Mr. Maxwell’s shelves …

My main comics storage – 2 Ikea type bookshelves (that are really the same size even if the lens distortion makes you think otherwise.  I cut out the manga digest collection on the top right and the paperback sci-fi on the top left (toys stored there, too.)  Apologies for the blur, but the flash will damage the spines of my valuable collection.  It’s true!

Secondary comics and research storage.  To the left, there’s mostly fiction: Lovecraft, horror and the like.  To the right is active research and comics overflow (note the DC Showcase volumes).  My desk would be at the far right.

Some detail shots.  Above featuring my Fireside/Marvel trades that date back to the 70s and were how I got introduced to Marvel comics.

Some Alan Moore for you, including the kinda hard to find Graphitti edition of WATCHMEN.

And, to the right of the last shot, more Moore.  Probably the most interesting thing there is the FROM HELL collection (not the big one) that has the first four issues and some scripts that I don’t think got reproduced anywhere else.  Oh, and you can just make out the BROUGHT TO LIGHT collaboration that he did with Bill Sienkiewicz and others for Eclipse back in the 80s.

Ah, PUMA BLUES.  I kinda wish that book had been given a chance to properly finish.  Oh yeah, and AGENTS OF ATLAS off to the right side there.
