One of my expert witnesses for my Guinness attempt was Michael D Hamersky from the ComicBookCollectorsBlog, the #1 followed Comics Blog on Facebook. Michael helped audit my collection and verify the 89,613 count.
He did a very thorough job, pulling out several random boxes & counting the contents to check against the database totals, as well as pulling random issues out of the database & making me produce them from the boxes they were supposed to be in!
His account of the day is listed in his Blog entry for May 19th.
Michael also has a much more extensive galley of photos of the event than I posted on my Blog yesterday, including shots like these:
Here’s Michael hanging out in “comics row” where about 75% of my collection is stored.
Here you can see the drawerboxes where I keep some of my favorites.
I’ll have a more complete gallery of my comics room (taken by my Documentarian, Dan Davis) up on the site soon!
EDIT: SyFy’s Blastr picked up the story about my comic collection bid for the World Record on June 25th:
