Happy Saturday and welcome to Shelf Porn! Today’s collection comes from Christian in London, who shows us his graphic novels, action figures, statues and more!
If you’d like to share your collection with us, you can find details at the end of this post.
And now let’s hear from Christian …
Thought it was about time I showed off my Shelf Porn!
So here’s my collection from London UK…
I’ve been collecting since around the time of Rachel Summers gaining the mantle of Phoenix so have always had a thing for that that era of the X-men, though I got brought back into the DCUniverse through Batman The Animated Series and the Justice League International
The Bwahahahah league has always held a soft spot for me, only surpassed by the Birds of Prey (pre-Nu52) so they do tend to appear around the place- long term I’d love some original JLI art or Birds of Prey art from Gail Simones first run…
I got rid of my 20 long boxes about 18 months ago (massive clear out- thank-you ebay!) and went digital and trade for a lot of stuff, tending to get hardbacks where i really like something, or some of the older pre-nu52 era DC trades
I Love the Marvel omnibuses and oversized hard and softbacks, and am using them to get runs of issues I’ve not read in ages.
Merchandise tends to have themes (such as the Doctor Who and JLi and JSA figures) as well as statues of characters or designes i really like, though who can resist the SBFFs and a soft toy Ace and Krypto!
My first big purchase was the fully signed S1 Lost cast photo, which I had shipped from Vegas to London back when the show was on the top of its game, though I do like the Larocca X-men/Women prints
the T-shirt was from Supernova 2001, which was a star Trek convention I helped run, you can’t see it in the pic, but its signed by all the guests who were there at the time.
I’m moving soon, so a lot of this will find itself re-prioritised and shifted around, but I’m looking forwards to finding new spots for all the art and figures…
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. Please put the text into an email and attach the images as separate files; don’t embed them into a Word doc. Uploading them to Dropbox or a similar service also works.
