I had the same issue, and it's probably not the answer you want; but all of mine ended up on ebay! Plenty of space, and a good bit of cash (although thats all gone know!). With christmas out the way, I will be buying more graphic novels again; but I'm going to have to be more picky about what I buy, based on available space!

wise words I think Mr Reader...'the' - a hint grandiose, after all there are others...other readers

Perhaps... but I don't think "One of many other Readers" has quite the same ring to it.

Amazons review describes that book as a tale of sex, love and reading. Yep, sort of describes my life! Lol.

Get some Comic boxes from your local comic book shop and store them in the closet. When you get the bigger house, unpack them into your "mans room". Alternativily build a fort out of the boxes! lol!

I solve it by gradually remove other things out of my house like my DVD collection or furniture.
My wife and children are also getting restless :)

2 drawer filing cabinets. They can be covered and become bed side cabinets, coffee tables etc. Also, if you put them on pallets and cover them they can survive in the garage.

I saw your question and thought of this page as it's all about you problem, so it might help.

I was looking for a more eloquent title, something a little less "grandiose", but nothing has, as yet, come to mind. I think "The Reader" suits, and, after all, why try to improve on perfection.

fair enough....The Reader

anyway looks like the Space problem has run its course..Next ? Time.....time to read the books/comix/magazines/websites/watch the tv/boxset/movie.news 24/documentary/listen to the music new and old, remixed and remastered with bonus discs of demos, and live and lost tracks while managing to stay reasonabley well fed and hydrated...specially with the end of the world coming up and that...

Thus far my solution (as someone who buys comics mostly as paperback books and the occasional hardcover, rather than trades) has been to buy large bookcases from Ikea that can hold two rows of standard american size graphic novel paperbacks on each shelf and at least 5 shelves if not six (don't actually own that many western comics so haven't tested out the full capacity yet), or alternatively 8 shelves of 3 rows of manga, 4 shelves of the smaller standard size and 4 rows of the larger standard size (though I don't think I could hold 3 rows of the larger standard size on one shelf, it has to be 2 larger 1 smaller). Alternatively they'll hold 8 shelves with 3 rows each of DVDs/BDs (probably VHS tapes as long as they aren't bigger than usual, but it's a tight squeeze on the shorter rows sometimes), btw, it is, of course, a huge pain getting to the back row, but at least I can store a lot of books/DVDs in a small space.

Bookcase (note that the price varies depending on which colour you select, I bought the cheaper white ones)

Extra shelves (you can select wooden ones instead of glass ones if you prefer for the same price)

Well, hope that was helpful, and if it wasn't that at least you can find another solution that's better suited to your circumstances.

I don't think the world is going to end tomorrow really, but I will try and make good use of the rest of my day just in case...
