Default Comic Caves: Let's see yours!

CGC has a thread dedicated to the showing off of "Comic/Man/Nerd" Caves and I figured it would be nice to see what some of the Junkies space looks like. In addition, maybe some of these spaces could give others good ideas for their own displays.

Since I finally got mine up and going, I will start us off. I still have quite a bit of work to do, but you gotta start somewhere

Supply and storage closet:



Office display area(Thanks Indy for the only slabs I own):

Sweet! Wish I had the space for something that cool, but for now it's "in the closet and usually any open spot in the bedroom or dining room" (to my fiance's horror).

Thanks for sharing!

My wife gives me my closet and the side of my bedroom to store my stuff...... I made walls and a walkway to pi$$ her off! I barely get her to let me hang up my concert posters around the house (in designated areas of course)!

Mine is a mess.
I have this system that holds 8 long boxes per shelf (so 24 long boxes);
but I can seems to narrow my collection to just 24 boxes.

I'm not sure if anyone wants to see my hoard cave. It's...not pretty.

Been meaning to post this for a while. Special Thank to digs for the idea on how to display books cheaply and effectively.

Me and my girlfriend moved in together, so the agreement was I could nerdify the living room as much as I want, as long as we got a second bedroom for an art room(which is also now a comic storage room)

First, My girlfriend got me a comic book display for my birthday this year. It needed to be painted badly, so I had the idea to paint it like a tardis!



















Since she was so cool about having nerdyness everywhere, I gave her a pony section.(with special appearance of my teemo hat)



These rest above our TV



(for you beer drinkers, all the beers in that pic are incredible)

Most of my wall space is taken, but this is the last section I can build on.



Thanks for checking it out!

Very nice! I particularly like the display case. I have some Sideshow statues on pre-order that would look nice in a piece of furniture like that.

Thank you, and you should have seen it before the paintjob. It also had these two kinda ugly pillars on the front walls that we ripped off. I like it a lot more this way.

I got some work done today. Going to add the third row and paint this week while on holiday leave.





This is what my house looked like 18 months ago.
