A Few Tips About Comic Book Bags
We store comics to keep them valuable. Air pollution, ultra
violet light, dirt and oil from fingers as well as rough handling
all contribute to the deterioration of a comic. Storing a comic
book properly is essential to keeping it valuable. There are 3
major storage components to proper comic storage. They are comic
bags, comic backing boards, comic boxes.
In this ariticle we will talk a little about comic book
Putting your comic in a properly sized comic book bag not only
keeps dust, dirt and finger oils off the comic book surface, but
helps prevent scuffing which can bring down the value of a comic
book considerably. The three most popular comic bag materials are
polyethylene, polypropylene and Mylar. New Comic Bags, Regular
Comic Bags, Dell & Silver Age Comic Bags and Golden Age Comic
Bags as well as Treasury Comic Bags all are available in all
three of these materials.
All three materials are considered to be ARCHIVAL - Meaning
that there is nothing in the composition of the material that can
contribute to the breakdown or destruction of the comic book
being stored in it.
Mylar is considered to be the most archivally sound and is the
choice of most museums and archivists as it has the longest shelf
life of the three materials. BUT, Every day comic collectors can
feel comfortable using polyethylene comic bags or polypropylene
comic bags. Most comic book bags come with a fold over flap that
can be taped on the outside of the bag along with certain
varieties of comic book bags that feature a reseal tape on the
body of the bag (vs. the flap), so the tape doesn't catch on the
comic and cause damage to the comic.
Just remember that with comic books, as with any type
colletable, be sure to store it in a cool, dry place free from
sunlight, dust, oils, and everyday exposure. This will ensure a
long and enjoyable collecting hobby for what ever you
