Shelf Porn Saturday | A post-Thanksgiving collection to be thankful for

by  in Comic News Comment

Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn! Today’s collection comes from Daniel Gibson, who shares shelves of action figures, trades, art and more.

If you’d like to see your collection here, drop me an email at jkparkin@yahoo.com with a brief write-up and some jpgs.

And now let’s hear from Daniel …

I love comics obviously. I try to organize them chronologically by character to make them easier to find and loan out. After I read a volume I only keep it if I liked it enough to one day possibly re-read it, otherwise I sell it. I think my collection would become unmanageable in that case!

Most of my wall art was ordered online (except for the custom pieces) and the autographs are from various comicons. I haven’t put up the items from this year’s SDCC yet though. The giant canvases are my most favorite selections to highlight.

Yes I open my figures and don’t keep them behind glass or anything =). They are meant to be played with and inspected from every angle.

For anyone curious about the actual shelving, the cubby is the largest option from Ikea. It was quite a pain to find a thin vertical heavy-duty matching option to house the big books. I ended up getting something else from Ikea and turning it on its end.

It took a long time to find a suitable display method for the IDW AEs — eventually I saw the easels idea from someone here on CBR and I found the right measurements on Amazon.

I want my collection to one day be as clean and classy as some of the other great ones you’ve posted here. I am especially fond of those that upgraded all their TPBs with the hardcover replacements and uniform spines. Jealous!
