Last June the family and I upgraded to a much bigger house, over twice the size of our previous home. Having that much space is awesome. What is even more awesome is my wife gave me one of the spare bedrooms as my "office"/studio/man-cave. I've posted about some of my efforts in the past.
When my in-laws were up here this summer my father-in-law helped me start another built-in bookcase for the man cave. I'm huge on storage and I weighed the options on buying prefab bookcases verses building my own and in the end I opted to try and build my own custom shelves.
So fast forward to this weekend and I'm waist deep in organizing my comic collection. My wife is very tolerant. But even she has her limits and one of the rules she laid down was the craziness had to be contained in this room. And I'm trying. Sad, or maybe not so sad, that this in only about half my collection. I still have a ton of stuff sitting in my parents basement in Wisconsin. So this weekend I buckled down, put on my best superhero pajamas and got to work. I've been making make-shift dividers out of manila file folders, you can read my tutorial on that at my comic blog here, to try and get all the series together, then hopefully I'll be able to put those in some sort of order.
