Dudes, Seriously

I have decided to extend the contest I am currently running for another week. I thank everyone who has sent in submissions so far, but I really can't believe that so few of you comic-loving types have nerdy objects in your homes. It can be ANY nerdy fan object. Anything that proudly says I Love This Character/Comic/Show/Celebrity/Movie and If You Don't Like It You Can Get the Hell Out of My House.

So please, if everyone emails me a photo of their favourite nerdy fan object then I will be able to make an awesome post that will serve as a glowing tribute to rabid fandom.

We don't even need to think of it as a contest (although there is still a fabulous prize: one autographed copy of the new Oni Press book Shenanigans). Just think of it as something awesome you should do. I refuse to believe that anyone who reads a comics blog wouldn't have at least one beloved fannish object. Even if you have, like, a single action figure...where do you display it? How is it posed? This stuff is FASCINATING!

Alright. Start snapping those photos and hopefully by next Monday I'll have enough to make a little museum of awesomeness. Send them to rachellegoguen at gmail dot com.

Don't make me sic my Dr. Doom curly straw on you.

I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but I'm proud of it. This may be difficult to see, but my wife and I painted one whole wall in my house with the emblem of the greatest hero of all time, Booster Gold!

Are you kidding?! That's EXACTLY what I'm looking for! That's amazing! Thanks for sharing!

Just wanted to make sure you saw mine. It even got a mention from Colleen Doran - woo hoo!

On one of my my bookshelves I have action figures of Mister Miracle's assistant Oberon and Dexter (from Dexter's Laboratory) standing next to the TARDIS. I just don't have any photos of it, so I can't participate and you'll just have to imagine the scene.

Oberon towers over Dexter, in case anyone was wondering.

I hope I'm not too late!

This post is pretty old, but it gives you a good idea of what my office looks like.

I really dig your site, by the way.

OK, as promised, here's a link to a quick snapshot of the little Alan Moore shrine in the basement. Basically just the framed print with a shelf-and-a-half of collected editions. For religious reasons I can't show you the Glycon sock puppet, of course.

However, Halifax's Best Salesman suggests that my custom Cthulhu poker chips are much nerdier, and I'm just as proud of those.
