What I notice about these images is that they tend to fall into three categories. First, people who use long boxes and try to make them as organized as possible. Second, people who use bookshelves and house their comics like more 'traditional' books. Third, people who prefer to display their comics face-front using the covers as pieces of art.
What's striking about this is that none of these solutions really seems to work terribly well. Long boxes (as can be seen in some photos) aren't that ideally suited to long-term storage. Bookshelves are tricky because of comics' tendency to bend; even using bookends doesn't help much since comics don't have the rigidity of hardcover books. The display approach does solve for those two problems, but it's relatively inefficient in terms of using the space; each single comic takes up a fair amount of room relative to the size of room.
So why is it that no one has come up with a better way of displaying comic collections? Even the best looking of these collections are uniquely designed for the space they're in. And I have to admit that my own solution is essentially a variation on shelving for long boxes, which only looks mildly impressive from the volume standpoint. It's by no means an attractive display.
I'm thinking there should be a way to display covers and give the collection some depth. What about some sturdier, glass-fronted long-boxes? Or some way that shelving can display portions of several issues placed front-to-back -- a kind of stair-stepping effect?
So when somebody does create something good for comic book storage, I'll be happy to sample/review the initial products, and take credit/compensation for the idea!
