Shelf Porn from a fan in frosty Bangor, Maine

If it’s Saturday, it must be time for Shelf Porn! Today’s shelves come from Kris in Bangor, Maine, who shares his shelves filled with graphic novels, action figures and more. On one shelf he has his DC figures, and on the shelf next to it are his Marvel figures, separated only by a small gap. If they ever decided to cross that gap … madness! (I watched Toy Story 2 last night with my son, so I can only imagine what those figures are getting up to at night).

If you’d like to submit your collection, find out how to do that by going here.

And now let’s hear from Kris …

*****

My name is Kris, and I hail from the frosty city of Bangor, Maine. I began my love affair with superheroes sometime in 1989, shortly before the release of the Tim Burton Batman flick. Though I was only 6 years-old at the time, I remember being swept up in the fervor that the entire country was caught up in. So, naturally, my first comic book was some random Batman comic that I honestly cannot remember much of.

Fast-forward about two years (1991), and you’ll find me in a general store with about $2 in my hand and a copy of Guardians of the Galaxy (the Valentino series) #17 staring me in the face. I was compelled by some unknown force to buy it. So I did. I know it wasn’t the greatest comic ever, but it cemented my love of the medium into a lifelong ordeal. I haven’t looked back since. Still waiting for a collection of those Valentino GOTG books, Marvel!

The collection you are about to view is the culmination of about 12 years of trade paperback, graphic novel, hardcover and other random superhero collectible buying. I’m not going to bother sorting through boxes of comics to show off, because that stuff is typically boring for me.

Thanks for looking!
