Way back in the good old days of comic books, they were made especially cheap plus sold cheaply. There was definitely no problem about keeping them in nice shape, because back then nobody really thought about becoming a “serious” comic collector. They were designed to be read plus passed about, plus more often than not thrown out by some parent at some point. Over time, people started to see that some comics could be lavish if you managed to keep them in excellent condition, however it was through blind luck that my big batch of comics survived through my childhood years! Now as a grown up plus collector, I keep them preserved with excellent air quality plus low humidity. I went so far as to set up a library in my garage with its own private Heating, Ventilation plus A/C appliance, just to maintain the perfect air temperature plus moisture levels for all of my comic books. Before you accuse me of throwing money away, let me explain to you how this Heating, Ventilation plus A/C appliance was actually an investment in my financial future, and some of these comics I own are worth thousands of dollars. High humidity plus poor ventilation could render them entirely worthless in a matter of days. The cheap paper stock of the comics will crumble to pieces without constant plus superior air quality, so this Heating, Ventilation plus A/C appliance is not about preserving the comics as much as preserving my retirement fund. Eventually I plan to sell the whole collection, score enough money to move to the beach, plus then I will never have to be concerned about ventilation or humidity levels ever again.
