The first comic that I ever bought as a collector was Amazing Spider Man #121.
I already had a lot of comics at this point, however this was the first time I bought a comic plus didn’t learn it.
This issue was signed by the writer plus artist, plus worth a tidy sum, so I left it vacuum-sealed in the package plus put it on display in a glass case in my collection roomâ€¦ Ever since then, for twenty 2 years, I have been an avid comic collector – although usually I do learn them before sealing them up! My collection room used to be a spare kitchen, but I added a few Heating plus A/C components plus a dozen sets of shelves (plus the glass cases) to make it a storehouse for my comic books. The long term condition of my comic books is of paramount importance to me, so I wisely invested money in the right temperature control gear for the room. The worst thing in the world for comic books is humidity… well, I know that fire is even worse, however there is a fire then I have larger troubles. In terms of caring for your books, humidity is the enemy, so do not cheap out on the dehumidifier. I got a small, portable a/c unit, which has a built in air filtration system. In addition to that, I also got a large dehumidifier, plus the total effect of both machines working together is amazing. It truly works too well, plus the air is so dry plus cold in there it’s not really comfortable.
