Looking after your Comics for the future

Need to look after your comic book collection?? by taking a few simple precautions, you can protect your comics and enjoy them for years to come. Below is some helpful tips to keep them in great condition.

  • Comics storage: Storing comic books can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. On the simple side, comic book sized plastic bags are available to keep dust and dirt out. Special acid-free cardboard backings are also available that wont damage ink. For more serious collectors, or more valuable comics, there are hard plastic cases that will protect your comic from almost everything.
  • Caring for your comics: To keep your comics in good condition, keep your comics out of direct sunlight. Sunlight will quickly fade comics, making the ink dull and the pages brittle. Also, avoid handling your comics too often as oils on your fingers will eventually discolour the comics and leave spots.
Comics have gone a long way from the classic "POW" "KABOOM" "WHACK" days of the Golden Age. Complex story lines challenge characters both physically and emotionally, and the artwork has never been better, so make sure you keep them in great condition for years to come so future generations can enjoy the thrill of a fresh comic book, or simply keep them safe to protect your investment.
