Makes you wonder what's behind the candle!
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

Sorry just ornate perfume bottles I am afraid and Star Wars hard backs behind the candle. Good spot on the unusual sex encyclopedia. A silly gift to the missus from her parents and yes there is some god awful stuff in there.
I do apologise for the Twilight shite and there is alot of wishy washy nonsense hidden in there.
No one spotted the Action Man Books? (Not the toy encyclopedia).

I've run out of shelf space and have now resorted to stacking my graphic novels on top of my wardrobe! I know it's a sorry sight and these books deserve better....



I think a trip to IKEA is in order!  :D

At the moment most of my non-2000AD trades are scattered across several bookcases but the other day I had a bit of a tidy up and decided to see what they'd look like in one place.

Those shelves of matching US size trades are rather lovely Tombo. I sometimes wish that the comics world could agree one uniform size for everything it would make shelving so much easier, a lot less fun but easier and the end product of the only change being the spines as you move from series to series is very nice.

I already had a sneak at Colin's mancave, and I'm as envious as hell man! :D

If only they would, it would be a wonderful place if that would happen.

@Mabs - The B.P.R.D. hardbacks were on offer on Amazon back in 2012, I think I paid about £45 for the first three (plus next day delivery) mostly because I couldn't find a copy of the third regular volume for love or money (or at least less than £20) anywhere and I'd read that the older sized books were been phased out of print.

I sometimes wish that the comics world could agree one uniform spine style or even just one spine style per series.

spookily enough, I just purged my 2k and Dredd annuals from the shelf, relegated to below stairs cupboards!

You think western comics are bad, manga publishers are constantly out doing one another to see who can produce the smallest TPB. My collection looks like a sea of pointed edges and cliff like drops. It's frustrating.
