Where do you keep your comics?

I just recently started collecting comics and I keep them in a drawer, although I might change that.

So I’m wondering where do you guys keep your collection?

I keep mine on a shelf in organized containers organized alphabetically by series. Also just started collecting leads to hundreds real quick. Even if you only get two new releases a week that leads to a lot real fast.

Oh in that case that’s not really a problem. As long as you keep them in a safe place it’s fine.

Guess I 'm not a collector. Just a reader.

I have single issues in an old milk crate bagged and boarded, trade paperbacks in my living room shelf, bedroom shelf, bathroom shelf, and a bunch I got from humble bundle on my PC.

Maybe it’s an upgrade, but mine are now in plastic tubs. No way dust can get in and easier to carry than trying to keep them on a bookshelf.

I’ve been collecting/reading nonstop since The 70s and have bought extensive back issues, which is why my wife hates that our basement has over 100 long boxes of floppies and 8 bookshelves of trades. I used to regularly pull from them to read or for research. Honestly, since the good stuff Is all digital, I haven’t even looked in the older boxes in years and Just keep adding the new stuff.

Mostly, I keep them in my heart. :smile:
But for my physical comics, I have them in a bookcase.

I keep issues and volumes on my book shelves. It makes it easier for me to organize them and allows for them to “breath”. I live in a humid climate so there is a risk of moisture build up if I place them in a enclosed container. On the shelf there is air flow and I am able to ensure the climate stays safe.
