Hhmm. This whole thread has got me thinking just HOW attached I am to the actual paper comics
Now I've got the I.M DVD collection is there any need to keep all those back issues? I mean, they just take up space....
On the other gauntlet, they don't take all that MUCH space!
It helps if you have a basement. One decent metal shelving unit with lateral bracing for support can hold a lot of longboxes which in turn hold a lot of comics. And if you bag and board them all, the basement moisture myth doesn't mean much.
