Doug: Recently some of our readers have been clamoring (OK, probably "asking politely" is a better way to put it) for new photos of the comic room in my basement. As I had a free couple of minutes last week, I took some photos of the shelving. The rest of the room looks basically as it did several years ago when I first ran this feature. However, about a year ago I wanted to make the display look more like a library and a bit less like a conglomeration of everything I've acquired through my collecting life. While I didn't get rid of anything, I did box up close to 40 action figures and accessories. That allowed me to reorganize the books and categorize them. I've enjoyed this, as I go to the shelves often for the comics reviews we do here on the BAB -- it's just much easier to find what I'm looking for now. In regard to the action figures, I basically kept out the ones I liked the best; you'll notice some specific groupings which I think are fun to look at.
Doug: The shelving unit was custom-made by the carpenter who finished our basement. It's about 6 feet high, with three compartments across by five high. You can get some scale by checking out the height as compared to the Archives/Masterworks; I believe the Marvel Legends Giant-Man build-a-figure is 15" tall.
Doug: I've tried to do a lay-out today that approximates what the shelving looks like in real life. Of course some of my camera angles weren't exactly what I'd hoped for, but I think you'll get the idea. Clicking on any of the individual images will get you something larger that will be kinder to your eyeballs. Let me know what you think, and thanks for checking it out!
