Hi everybody,

I have really enjoyed looking at everyone's collections, and I thought it was about time that I took some grainy photos with my iPhone and posted my collection. I've been reading comics for about twenty-six years. I was lucky enough to live near a Pegasus Comics in Oregon run by Pat Richardson when I was a little kid (they later turned into Things from Another World). Pat was a super nice guy and the total antithesis of Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons. He would stay open late for me on comic book day since my mom got off of work late just so I could by a few, but to me incredibly important, comics. Unfortunately, I had to move after a few years, and I went back later in life to check out the old shop, but by then, I think he was working with his brother at Dark Horse. I've loved comics and scifi novels ever since.

Now that I'm all grown up, my wife has always been nice enough to let me have a room in the house for my stuff. I've got all the huge unsightly long boxes in storage, but I tried to pack as many trade paperbacks, statues, original comic art, and assorted other crap that I could cram in. I also have an arcade machine with a few thousand games on it, and for any arcade purists out there, don't worry; I built the cabinet from scratch, so no original arcades were harmed.

Thanks for checking out the relaxation room of an overgrown kid/madman,Tom
