Storage Systems for Comic Books

 

This has become a major area in collections conservation, with extensive product lines developed for comics. We feel that the advantages offered by MicroChamber papers open vast new horizons in conservation in general, and particularly in the instance of inferior- quality papers, such as newsprint or comic book paper. Therefore, while we continue to offer Lig-Free Type I and Grey/white papers, boards, and boxes in sizes suited to comics, we heartily recommend MicroChamber papers, boards, and boxes in their place. Our .003 in. conservation quality polyester envelopes are the best available plastic enclosures for comic books. .003 in. polyester is guaranteed to be archival, while lighter polyesters (one or two mil) can not be guaranteed archival. Additionally, .003 in. polyester offers rigidity that lighter weight polyesters or polypropylene bags may not afford your collection. Ideally, consider placing each comic book in its own polyester bag, backing it with a sheet of MicroChamber for support and to remove by-products of deterioration, and placing the whole package in a MicroChamber box. Backing boards are offered in.020 Lig-free I and .012 MicroChamber papers. Sheets of .060 Grey/white board or .065 MicroChamber board may be used as dividers and to separate groups of magazines. Comic book boxes are designed to ship flat and may be set up as needed. They are available in .060 Grey/white board and .065 MicroChamber board.
