Just got all my comics on a new bookshelf. How correct is the reading order I've put them in? Should I rearrange them? I'm going for chronological order. This first shelf is pretty much all Batman stuff.

I'd move Odyssey over with MillerBats and Earth One. Otherwise, yeah. My particular brand of shelf-autism is satisfied.

I have no idea if the Marvel ones are arranged correctly or not.

Remove Supergod. It doesn't belong. Keep your shelves clean. Marvel and DC only.
>>
>>78680444

Just noticed I put Convergence before Multiversity by accident. I just moved it back to being after Multiversity, but I'm still uncertain about the arrangement of everything else.
>>
>>78680565

The next shelf down is a bunch of non-comic fantasy books, so it wouldn't really fit in with them. Otherwise, I definitely would.

OG coloring, you can find it on Ebay
>>
>>78681842
They both look good.
>>
>>78681951
listen here nigger

the left has you following the action in the color yellow from panel to panel, until you finally reach Joker, resplendent in all his glory, the only normally-colored thing on the page, a man who, in this riotous world of madness, appears normal

the right is just flat, boring, and uninspired

The left uses color to expand on and improve the storytelling of the pencils

the right just uses color because cape comics need color
>>
I alphabetize my books by title and mix DC, Marvel, and all other publishers together. As long as the books are alphabetized by title.

Although, I have been thinking of separating by publisher as everyone else does.
>>
>>78681842
>>78681951

I do need to buy a new version anyway, since my friend lost my dust cover for it. Where can I get the original coloring in hardcover format for the cheapest price?
>>
>>78682119
I don't think you can get it hardcover, but Ebay is probably going to be your best bet
>>
>>78680565
INFIDEL! a pure shelf has no marvel or dc!
>>
My bookshelf is tilting forward slightly, how do you guys fix that?
>>
>>78682056
Right is the INTENDED colors
>>
>>78682115

I basically want my friends to be able to read my books in the best possible order without spoilers, like knowing that Damien is Batman's son and that Damien dies and then that Damien comes back to life.
>>
>>78682172
why should that determine which is better? Right is still bog-standard digital cape coloring, nothing notable about it and adding nothing to the storytelling
>>
>>78680600
Why don't you just arrange it by publishing date instead?
>>
>>78682172
Yeah and the intended colors are awful, so what? Brian Boland is good at drawing figures but bad at color theory.
>>
>>78680248
>>78680444

Also, based off the books I have here, does anyone have any suggestions for good comics that I would probably enjoy?
>>
>>78682293

I was considering doing that too. I need a good list of when all of them were published though.

>>78684129

Put something under the front part of the bookshelf to even things out?
>>
>>78684177

OP here, I recommend you get all the exact same books that I have.
>>
>>78684538

...Except the ones that I have that I don't care too much for, that is.
>>
>>78684538
I'll hold back on all the Batman, but everything else looks good.
>>
>>78684177
your taste is only a little shit, but that can be excused by being entry level

although shout-out to Astro City
>>
>>78684649

OP here, what about my tastes?
>>
>>78684668
generally ok but there's one terrible section

also too much SnyderBat
>>
>>78684649
If it alleviates my shittiness, Astro City is certainly my favorite among my collection. As for the Earth One Superman, I'm just a sucker for the Ultimate type of universe. Although i regret my purchase of Superman Earth One volume 2
>>
>>78684518
Yeah, I was thinking of getting a plank of wood wider than the shelf to balance it. Just asking here in case anyone here has the same issue. The shelf is on carpet so I'm assuming the heavy weight of the books it tilting it, but I dunno what the best action is.
>>
>>78684703

Which is the terrible section?
>>
>>78684928
Waypool to Annihilators

Some of those I can agree with you about, but anything with Galactus in it, I can't help but to buy. Galactus is by far the best character in any comic ever. Though, I do need to get better Galactus related comics. Any suggestions?
>>
>>78685021
Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four

Annihilation is pretty aces if you want something more recent
>>
>>78681342
It's non-cannon, which is why I suggested moving it over with the other off-continuity stuff.

>>78684668
>taste, suggestions
I can't really judge your taste because your shelf is pretty entry level, and I don't mean that dismissively. You like Batman, Superman, Deadpool, and stuff that's been adapted to movies, so I don't know what to recommend other than "more cape stuff."

DC
>Crisis on Infinite Earths
>Seven Soldiers of Victory (leads-in to Final Crisis, Multiversity) and Morrison's 90's JLA
>More Vertigo. Doom Patrol or Animal Man. Shade the Changing Man. Preacher.

Marvel
>More cosmic? Silver Surfer, Adam Warlock, anything Infinity Gauntlet era.
>Claremont or Morrison X-Men?
>Miller or MarvelKnights Daredevil?
>Ennis Punisher?

Do you prefer newer stuff? Self contained? Are you open to indies/non-cape? Invincible might be right up your alley.
>>
>>78685228

I'm open to pretty much anything at all. I've got a wide variety of other books from manga to sci-fi to fantasy to Far Side and Garfield and everything in between. But for the most part, I like detailed artwork and good plots.

I've been wanting to get some Doom Patrol and Animal Man and I've heard good things about Preacher. I've also wanted to get into the Infinity Gauntlet stuff, but there's just so much of it and I only have so much money. Would just a few books in the series suffice or would I need to get a lot more to be able to follow the storyline? And do you have any suggestions for any good Mephisto comics? One of the first comics I ever read was the old Lee/Kirby one with Galactus/Silver Surfer/Mephisto and it pretty much got me into comics.
>>
>>78685520
The Silver Surfer: Rebirth of Thanos TPB is the "setup" for Infinity Gauntlet, and a pretty fun little trade unto itself. You really only NEED that, and the Infinity Gauntlet TPB. The Omni is nice, but not required.

If you liked that Lee/Kirby stuff I'd recommend checking more from that era.
>>
I order my comics by size, from the tall comics to the short ones.
And the comics with the same size are ordered by character and runs.

i'd put the ones with the similar spine designs/similar type together, like for me all my marvel essentials go together with iron man 1, then 2, then three THEN man-thing 1 and 2 then i'd put my non marvel stuff like my taller GN's like watchmen and V for V then i do my turtles stuff at the other end of the shelf and i stack in descending size the leftover toward the lesser filled end and put a small item in the middle to break up the negative space

here is my shelf (although i hadn't put my comics up when i took the pic) but see how uniform my video game guides are on the bottom row/ something like that anon, otherwise looks great, good collection
>>
>>78684129
my bookshelf has a nylon strap screwed into the wall and onto the top end shelf. you could sand down the base at an angle if it really bothered you, although it may just be your floor, mine naturally sags near the wall so i don't have to worry about it falling forward
>>
>>78680248
im at work otherwise i'd make this easier

google /co/ archive

search !naoyoumadk in the trip line under advanced

look for pics of my batman shelf. then put what you do have in that order. don't thank me though, thank all the other nice anons who had to help me arrange them at one point in time.

Fuck.
>>
>>78690389
are you trying to liquidate what you have? i'll pay 40% on books im interested in. make a list or take a picture, maybe we'll help you get rid of shit
>>
>>78690370
the assclowns at mile high comics wanted $120 for the man-thing omnibus and i bought the essentials long ago before marvel decided color was an acceptable format :,c

but i have a copy of savage tales 1 so i have the first appearance now if i could just get a frame with fade-proof glass or something
>>
how do you guys keep your shelves from sagging in the middle due to the weight of the books? i had one shelf that was covered with the formica? on both sides so i flipped it but i had to put all my heavy shit and calvin and hobbes omnibus on the bottom
>>
>>78690946
try to put your heaviest books on the bottom where there is likely more support

i have so much weight on my shelves yet i can barely tell there is any sag at all. my shelves are trash and if one day they break or annoy me with sagging ill just learn how to build actual shelves and never worry about it again

$120 is a lot for that manthing omnibus. you should set up alerts on ebay so when new ones get posted maybe you'll get it for a decent price
>>
>>78690571
40%?

I seem to find that as long as they're treated well and are of good condition - comics and trades don't tend to depreciate in value.

>>78690389

Most people selling on ebay seem to do well at undercutting new prices by a relatively small margin - not chopping the value by less than half.

but they can be bought brand new for 50% from IST. why would i pay full price or even 50% for something that is used? additionally what thing on this planet can you buy and resell for 100% cost? the only thing i know of that comes close is guns
