WHY DO WE BAG AND BOARD COMICS?
The comic bag and board have been the primary way that comic book collectors protect and store their treasured comic possessions. Without these devices, a comic book will simply be destroyed by the elements, as comic books just like any other paper made products can be easily damaged if not looked after.
Comics can be effected by the sunlight, so it is always best practice to store them away from sunlight. Comics just like any other book can be prone to tears and damage to the spine over time and handling.
Comic boards supply a firm support to the comic allowing the spine not to stress and cause tears in the staple location. They also provide protection to the edging as they are usually bigger than the comic itself, ensuring no contact to the edge of the book when handling and moving the comic.
The Comic bag should be acid free to stop chemical reactions within the plastic and the paper of the comic. All the comic bags we sell are Acid Free. They also protect the comic from contact damage such as dirt on the fingers and stains from any other object.
Why do all this? Well to put it simply if you love something and don't want to see anything happen to it. Any collector would do anything to ensure it won't be damage or at the very least try to prevent any damage or harm from happening. As well in time some items may come to particular increase of value. Comics just like books can be more valuable if the condition is perfect on near mint condition. And by simply bagging and boarding your comics you are protecting that investment.
