Comics Storage

Postby airdomin8 » Fri Sep 10, 2010 10:48 am

My comics are using up space a little impractically and I was debating moving them into my garage for storage. However, I'm a little concerned about water and moisture damage over time.

Does anybody have any useful suggestions? Does anybody else do this already?

I wouldn't put them in the Garage there is way too much moisture and bugs. If you really want to put them out there I would get some air tight containers. There are some large rubbermaid ones that would work well.

Sounds like a really good way to destroy your comics. Might be better to make some room in an attack crawlspace.

Put them in a storage space with humidity control and and temperature control. It's better...also ALWAYS insure them even if you have them in a storage locker.

uhhhh i know i'm not the only one who has them at his mom's place.

She really hates them and wants her walk in closet back but forget that. i rent and move to much.

outside is bad. i had them in my old bedroom with them packed against the wall but the room always had a problem where the windows would ice over on the inside in the winters. so one christmas i noticed a whole bunch of mold all over one box. the books were fine but it was a close call. so attics and shit bite too unless its an area you or someoen who cares can check up on them regularly. avoid: in, beside, or under bathrooms and kitchens

Ditto. To top it off, I had to spend nearly an hour scrubbing mold off the wall. It was that nasty black shit, too. :?

Gents, thanks for the feedback!

I'll be keeping the comics out of the garage (no bugs), away from moisture (no mould) and away from a storage site (no insurance premiums or angry Mom).

Probably best if I keep them in a dry crawspace, storing issues I acquire over the year in no particular order, then cataloging once per annum.
