    Chances are they are piled all over the place for the photo op...and I don't think he cares one way or another about the condition.


    You are correct.

    No comics were harmed in the creation of this picture :-)

    Comics were carefully stacked to make a dynamic picture showing a volume of books. After they were done everything was put back away, I don't keep huge piles of comics all over the floor. (and the "good stuff was just the top/visible books....most of those stacks are 90s Marvel & Image books, so no great loss if they we damaged.... ba-dum-bump!)

  • That's awesome Bob. Your place looks like a dream comic book shop.

    Bob,
    I added that 2nd link so everyone can really get a feel of how massive your collection is and I'm not just talking comics...Shocked
    Looks like you painted that room recently as in the other photos it's white and now it's blue.
    Congrats sir, good to see a collector that does it for the sheer enjoyment and not as just an investment. Applause
