Boosh.

My book shelf. All 400 of them.

Taken two months ago. I keep a list of every trade I have, I write down the name, writer, artist, and my rating of the book.

I know how many books I have.

Not that I'm going to count it, but that doesn't look like 400.

No, they are just the filthy re-produced non-originals lol but thats all I could get. I have tin signs all around my room, coke, pepsi, sprite, shell gas, ford t-bird etc. I buy a new piece annually from a festival that comes to my city once a year.

All those binders on the bottom of the Marvel shelf are my marvel and dc cards, and I also have about 50 bowen statues, some busts, and all the batman black and white statues. I spend way too much on comic stuff, but i've been a fan since the age of 5 when I started collecting those Marvel and DC cards and theres been no turning back since, i'm 22 now.

74 all together. But that includes my Ultimate Spider-Man HCs (they collect two trades worth, I think) and my omnibus collections (New X-Men, Daredevil, Captain America, and Invincible).

I really prefer HCs to TPBs...but I still own more TPBs. Either way, I read most of my comics through collected editions, sometimes reading the single issues online monthly, then buying the TPB or HC when it comes out.

I started collecting about 4 years ago, and I think I'm off to a fairly good start. I only hope it grows with time

I can email you the list if you don't believe me.

Also, that may not be 400. I took that photo a few months ago, so it's probably closer to 380.

Probably about 300.

<-- faints when realizing most of those were bought in a comic book store, not online or somewhere with a great deal

Yeah I never used to buy tpbs or hardcovers online until a couple weeks ago and realized how much money I could have saved. Now I get all my trades online.

I usually do not buy in trades. I normally prefer the individual issue method. But I do own, Fables the first trade, The Sandman collection volume 1 and 2. Atomic Robo, Greatest Joker, Batman, Flash, Teen Titans stories ever told. Batman: Death in the Family, Batman: Dark Knight Returns, and After the Cape vol. 1.
