    This is my room back at my parents house taken awhile back (about the start date of this thread). Most of it is still like this, except alot of the figures have been put away, and the DVDs and TPBs are all at my apartment

    December 05 update: moved into a new apartment in September, and aligned the collection in a more stylish way. Had planned to take pics at some point, but was just browsing desktop and discovered my fiance already had. They're not as close (or as bright) as I was hoping to take, but they'll do for now


    (that's the original artwork for the covers of Ex MAchina #4 and Shaolin Cowboy #1 behind the TV)

    Original art collection, finally dug a digital camera out.

    two splash pages featuring Speedy from Green Arrow

    a two-page splash also from GA featuring Black Canary
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/OAGABCHester.jpg

    Green Arrow 36 page 19, and one of Mike Mayhew's prelim sketches for the cover of The Pulse #12
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/OAPulse12coverprelimGA36p19.jpg

    100 Bullets #8 pages 20 and 21
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/OA100B8p208p21.jpg

    100 Bullets 23 page 13 and an unused cover by Tony Harris from Warren Ellis' miniseries Down (although Tony told me this was going to be used, so I need to have words with him at some point...)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/OA100B23p13Downunusedcover.jpg

    an original Transmet sketch by Derrick Robertson, and Transmet #23 page 14 with the Smiler
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/OATransmet23p14.jpg

    Transmet #59 page 18 (Smiler gets his comeuppance) and #51 page 21 (hysterical Royce page)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/OATransmet59p1851p21.jpg

    Preacher #45 p21-22, the pissing on the cross sequence. Unfortunately, some of the word baloons that were attched have become loose. Does anyone know the proper glue to reattache them with?
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/OAPreacher45p2145p22.jpg

    Two pages I am monumentally proud of (I want the second one framed): Runaways #3 page 4, the first time Karolina flies, and #12 page 23, a beautiful splash page of the whole group by Takeshi Miyazawa
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/OARunaways4p312p23.jpg

    These two were just too funny not to get. Runaways 4 page 10, the x-ray scene, and the second is by Mike Mayhew from a wizard article on Brian K. Vaughan.

    Cover to Shaolin Cowboy #1 by Geof Darrow
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/shaolincowboy1.jpg

    Cover to Ex Machina #4 by Tony Harris
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v180/elijya/sketchbook/ExMachina4.jpg

    Transmetropolitan #63 page 22

    pobably the most valuable thing I own: The original pencils to the JLA group shot from Identity Crisis by Rags Morales. This image was drawn once then photostated for it's appearences inside the books. It was also used as the cover to the third printing of #1, and on all the promotional materials for the hardcover, and the cover for one edition of the Hardcover.

    Don't you mean; it's your girlfriend. :p

    But I am jealous of your Veritgo posters. None of the comic shops in my city have posters like that. I'd love to have those Preacher and Transmet posters. :mad:

    wow.

    i mean wow.

    umm, just out of curiosity, how old are you?

    i mean in college i had wall to wall movie posters, it rocked, but that room shows the depths of your , umm obsession, problem, fandom.. especially the toys.

    it is cool though

    Heh, I had a room that looked like that. I had Original horror film posters for Hellraiser, TCM, Halloween and The exorcist and toys all over the place and Statues and busts. Then I moved in wityh my Girlfriend.....

    Needless to say all the toys and Statues except for a few select ones she lets me put out are in boxes and all the posters are in storage.

    Yes my friends, relationships have a price, a heavy price.

    The two Ultimate Spiderman comics aren't what caught my eye, it was The Amazing Spider-man 129. That's hot stuff.

    They caught my attention too. But the Ultimates Spidey wasn't far behind. Also why are the shevles next to the bed empty? LOL Everytime someone comes round my place and sees my girlfriends teddy they have a go. I know what you feel like Elijya.

    Yeah I'm just a huge Punisher freak which is why I always notice AmS 129 if it's around. I huge runs on almost anything Punisher related. Mini 1-5, Regular Series 1-25 and a few odd issues, War Journal 1-10 and a few odd issues plus everthing Ennis has done on the character. I also have his second appearance in AmS 135. All I'm really missing is 129...the holy grail of Punisher books.
