Collecting and Caring for Your Comics

Comics are a major piece of pop culture as it combines art and writing. A comic book is defined as a booklet of words and pictures that are integrated into a printed format. It is both a one of a kind artistic expression and a literary standard that originated in the US in the late 1800s. In comic books, everyday language are used. It is placed in dialogue boxes and with a series of pictures portrays a thought quickly and directly. It is different from novels or books, the comic books' pictures control the reader's interpretation of the words and they are forced to see the writer's point of view. Comic books allow the reader to examine the minds of the characters.

Being hugely compelling piece of pop culture, comic books are great collectible items. Collecting comic books is a fun hobby. The majority of comic book titles fixate on superhero characters but there are also comic books on comedy, drama, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, for adults, for children, in foreign languages and adaptations. There is a wide variety to choose from, which can result in a huge comic book collection. That's why the focus on the comic covers is important. It attracts people to take a look and eventually read and buy.

If you plant to buy, keep and collect, you must make sure that it can stand the test of time and it  should be in crisp condition. To keep them in mint condition, they must be carefully flipped through while reading. Please refrain from dog-earing and folding the pages. Then when you are done with it, keep it protected. It is not difficult. You just need to know how to protect your comics.

Get a mylar sleeve and a backing board. This is like a clear envelope with a pressed-board backing. This sleeve prevents moisture from damping the comic and the board guarantees that the comic isn't collapsed or folded. Slide the comic into the sleeve against the treated side (the white side) and the comic cover facing front. Then you should get a box. The comics should be stored in a long or short comic box with the comics standing up.

Don't forget make a list of  the comic books stored in the box. Make it organize so that you can easily find it. You can include date of release, title and issue number. This can avoid unnecessary skimming and flipping through the comics.

Where to get these supplies? If you are buying from a comic specialty store, get it from the same place.

Incredible Hulk #377

Hulk in Pink? Luckily it was only the title. This cover features bold experimentation with color. The black and white Hulk against the neon green background. Combined with the use of the pink title.


I like this better than The Mighty Avengers # 36 and Spider-Girl #75. One of the best covers of all time. If you collect this, make sure it is protected.
