When I was merely twelve, I came back home from summertime camp and found that our mother had cleaned out my room. She actually had thrown away several hundred of my comic books. She said I didn’t read them any more and they were just taking up too much space. It was the angriest I have ever been in my entire life. I’m still mad about it! Those comic books are long gone and there’s nothing I can do to get them back. However, since then I have always been undoubtedly protective of all of my belongings, and now I am a partner and father with my own place. I keep all of my comic books in an air conditioned storage unit I rent a few blocks away. It is important I protect them not only from being thrown away by my wifey or ruined by our kids, but also protected with high air quality, and climate control that will retard the growth of mold and mildew. These air conditioned storage units are certainly amazing, because you get full climate control, plus a locking door and on-premises security guards 24/7. The security is a nice feature, however with something I adore as much as comic books, having the air conditioner and air purification in the locale is an even greater factor for protection. The aging paper and colorful inks can bleed and run if the heating and humidity gets too intense, so maintaining climate control for your collection is of the highest importance. If you have comics, don’t just stick them anywhere, make sure to keep them all in a safe location with a good Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system.
