Adding my "dork dungeon", as my wife calls it.  :)

I get the basement, where I also have a tv and my gaming set up.

I just got the shelving units and moved all my books into short boxes.  That way they can all fit on the shelves and are easy to access (more or less).

I don't have much artwork, yet, but will add eventually.

So this happened to me today.  The above our the "before" pictures.  Below are the after.  Came home to a busted pipe and water EVERY where.  Can't tell what exactly happened, but damage was above my desk and computer set up.  Water spread pretty good.  Was thankful I put my books on the shelving about a month or so ago.  Could have been much worse.

The only damage was done was to some recent issues purchased but also a recent acquisition of ASM 299 from @ft88 was damaged.  Which makes me very sad.  

Was pleasantly surprised to see that some books that were exposed but were in bags were well protected.

House was built in 1979.  We moved in about 2 1/2 years ago.

I was hoping to hear maybe a recent inspection or insurance. But and by the pics, I suppose the cgc boxes where on the other side of the room to the desk and the caved ceiling, + water? :(

That is correct.  That is why it could have been worse.  All of my more "collectible" comics were on the shelves off the floor and on the other side of the room.  Was really bummed about ASM 298 considering I just got it and had planned on submitting it.  The desk area is where I bag and board my new books.  Just happened to have the 298 and a 306 (which somehow survived with no damage thankfully).

There were a lot of F-bombs at first but upon reflection I realize it isn't too bad.

I would have lost my spam filter too, I thought that you had mentioned only just now settling in and making it home, with the basement and all...ya could have been worse, a lot to be thankful for :foryou:

I know my comic closet is right next to the breaker box, since had it located elswhere... so much care goes into these things....

Inquiring minds need to know ;)

And If it's not too much trouble, what does the back of the acrylic look like? Or what kind of support does it have for the back?

Sorry for the delay guys. You can get them on eBay or as storm shadow says from cgagrading. Remember to get the giant size ones as they fit the standard new slabs. Pics as requested!17E1D0C0-D12C-441C-A021-869AE7BC889A.thumb.jpeg.0ba5b03a06579f96f59706e0d07f5380.jpeg9919DE10-946F-4A56-936E-EEC28C9D8EA5.thumb.jpeg.57baf9b57dd3bd90e3428d437e19fce1.jpeg1B664B76-75E1-48C3-99ED-F7B52EF55FA4.thumb.jpeg.e188d6285607078601e9a621e7e44d6e.jpegF9C9D239-26F2-4EAB-B038-F5E73F247E63.thumb.jpeg.7fec809213af8ed01a05abd13c99d042.jpeg

 

 

 

Those are :headbang: a little expensive, as I don't have a room in the house without windows, except for closets..

The UV protection would be needed....

Thanks for the pics ^^

I guess that I could just buy 1 or 2 With UV protection and change them out :) glad I could find them on eBay too, as I don't know how long it'll take before money is allocated to cases rather than comics lol

I am just in awe of @Spikenector and his room. Damn. That's just beautiful. Would love to know the specs as to how you built it, what you used, etc. etc..

You can get those cases with the uv protection but that adds like $10 to the cost I believe. And I don’t know if it is 100% either.
