Very nice setup, Dee Dee!! 893applaud-thumb.gif Any plans to showcase more of the comics you are keeping in the closet?

 

Yeah, I've been thinking of buying some of those frames for slabs on ebay... 893scratchchin-thumb.gif

 

Right now i keep the comics in long and short boxes in the closet because its nice and cool in there, and because if i leave them out, i'll just end up tripping over them and breaking my neck tongue.gif

 

I think Chris (Beyonder) makes custom-design frames. Shoot him a pm. He might be able to set you up.

You need to put the images on an image hosting site like photobucket.com and then paste the link to the site. Hope this helps.

 

I offered to host them for him but no response frown.gif

Well just as much a collectibles room as it is a comics room, here is my little slice of 1970's/1980's pop culture. Well represented here is everything I loved as a child...comic books, Star Wars, Kiss and Atari smile.gif This first shot is what it looks when you first enter

Here is a shot of the Goblin wall

 

ComicRoom013.jpg

 

and a 2nd shot of the Goblin wall

my comic rack

 

ComicRoom004.jpg

 

One of my display cabinets with statues, as well some O/A on the wall

 

ComicRoom003.jpg

 

some 70's key books and Atari stuff in another display cabinet

 

ComicRoom005.jpg

 

some unproduced vintage Star Wars packaging and slabs

 

ComicRoom006.jpg

 

my Kiss homage

 

ComicRoom007.jpg

 

loose toys and Secret Wars set

 

ComicRoom008.jpg

 

yes I put a bed in the middle of my room...it's where I go to read or just think and get away from everyday life smile.gif

 

ComicRoom009.jpg

 

my FF#1 and other slabs

 

ComicRoom010.jpg

 

and because I am running out of room, some of the stuff overflows outside of my little "slice of heavan" and is displayed outside of the theatre/gaming room.

Thanks for looking,

Johhny: Yep you'll see me for sure

 

Chris: Yep, you have definitely contributed a good amount to my collection. smile.gif

 

Thanks for the kind words everybody.

I love the room. My wife and daughter keep trying to talk me into buying a bigger house by offering, "you can have a comic room" as part of the deal. After seeing some of these rooms, I have to say 893scratchchin-thumb.gif

 

I am curious about some of your books and items. Is the art on the wall a reproduction of the cover of Spidey 136? Who did it? I would love to see a close-up. And the graded Spidey 122. And the Amazing Adventures 11 and Spidey 129. And.... [which is my way of saying "sweet books" thumbsup2.gif]

As for the books, the #122 is the Don Rosa 9.4. and the others you asked about are higher grade raws. Thanks for your kind words.

 

And for Deathlok, here's me taking some books out of my Moms car smile.gif
