Some ‘Flash’-y New York Shelf Porn from a Wally West fan

by  in Comic News Comment

Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn, where fans share their collections with the rest of the world. Today’s shelves come from Jesse in New York, who shares his collection of comics, graphic novels, original art and a “dash” of Flash merchandise.

If you’d like to see your collection here on Shelf Porn, check out all the details on how to make that happen.

Hi, here are some photos of my apartment showing off my shelves. My collection isn’t just comics and graphic novels, but lots of those old-timey “regular” books, too. I used to have a lot of random mismatched bookcases, so when my wife and I last moved, we decided to get rid of them all and get these modular wood boxes instead. I think we have about 130 of them now. They’re perfect for our Manhattan apartment because you can squeeze them anywhere. So in the attached photos you’ll see several shelves of graphic novels, as well as novels (in the baby’s room) and nonfiction, and art books, and more (including one box for copies of my own book). In the bedroom, I’ve got a different box-type shelf I made that has all Marvel and DC single issues, and a DVD shelf, too. In addition, I have some Flash memorabilia around; he’s my favorite character (Wally of course) and I’ve collected a few items, including an awesome “jam” piece of art. I also have a nice Sean Murphy original hanging up, a page of Batman and Robin researching in the Wayne Manor library.
























If you’d like to see your collection featured here on Robot 6, here’s what you need to do:

1. Take some photos and save them as jpgs.
2. Write up a little something about your collection.
3. Send them to me in an email.

Some additional tips:

1. Although we don’t have a minimum or maximum limit on photos, usually 10-15 should suffice. They also don’t need to be huge, so if you can shrink them down so they are less than 1000 x 1000, that would be great. You can help make your collection look nice by being sure to focus, use the right lighting, dust your shelves beforehand, etc.
2. You can either write something up that’ll appear at the beginning of the post, or you can describe each item. Be sure to indicate where each image should be placed within your write-up, but don’t embed the images into a Word doc. Just put the file name in brackets where you want the image to appear.
3. When sending images using something like YouSendIt or DropBox, please keep in mind that I may not get to your submission for a month or more, so make sure you don’t delete them or that they won’t expire.
4. Please include your name (just your first name is fine) and location with your write-up.
5. There’s no need to send an inquiry about whether or not we want to feature your collection; that’ll just slow the process down. Send your full submission, and if I have any questions or issues I’ll get back to you. Right now we have a pretty deep backlog of submissions, so if you don’t see your collection right away, don’t despair — it’s coming!
