Truthfully any room I’m in long enough becomes my comic room. Couldn’t believe that JohnnyG only had 6 (now 7) likes for the first post in one of my favorite threads. 
 

 

That was his last post.  :frown:

if you have an earthquake all those VHS tapes are gonna fall on you while you're sleeping! lol

 

Spare bedroom. So not my head. :roflmao:besides I am in Florida in an area most refer to as Lower Alabama.  More likely to have sinkholes or hurricanes. Although I do live where my back yard is basically Eglin Airforce Base. When the planes fly over especially during their low fly exercises I could high five the pilots from my roof. More than once I have had to pick up books from my book cases and vhs/DVDs. Once almost lost a ceiling fan from one of their sonic flights! Since then I have made sure all of these that look like they may fall,  will not. Even though it is not apparent in the pictures most shelves have a lip or angle slightly back toward to wall to accommodate.  Live and learn. (thumbsu

We moved six months ago & I finally got around to unpacking the office/comic room!

We have a *lot* more space to work with here, so I get my own private sanctuary, instead of being lumped in with the family/media room in the old house.

Some of the art & books are on the wall, but not much. Some of it needs to be re-framed, as I was able to pick up a pair of original pen & ink pieces from the artists to go with the prints I had. Going to get them framed up together like the Venom & Carnage piece in front of my desk by Atom Todd. 

The wall with the long & short boxes is going to get custom shelving similar to what I had in the old house, but this time I’m doing full aluminum square tube frames (for strength) & building a wood box around it (for aesthetics). The wood cabinets were plenty stout, but I had to leave them behind because they were built in; I want these to be stand alone cabinets that I can take with if I move again. I’m also making the depth sufficient to fit the BCW black plastic long boxes, & height tall enough for the graded plastic boxes. Last time I had the width to fit four boxes across but it was tight. Going to give myself a little extra wiggle room this time. Also, going to limit it to three high on the long boxes to save some wear & tear on my back, and maybe  I can get a little bit of countertop or display space for toys & statues.

I kept the fold-down couch because naps are amazing & occasionally my better half likes to come in and work on her crochet projects while I’m working. The chair is a wonderful leather lounge chair that is horrible as a desk chair, but it’s what I have to work with right now, and is super comfortable.

Updates as I get projects completed. Let me know what you think & if you have any recommendations. I have the materials in the garage to build a hutch for the desk, but I’m torn; I kind of like having the art wall instead of storage, but I have all those Aliens toys that I want to display. 🤣 

As an aside, I tried to upload a panoramic photo & it didn’t take; wrong file size or something.

The frame you have of all the Carnage covers looks like , you should give it to me. LOL

How big is that shelf? I like the look of that and might steal it from you. :) Or at least something similar.
