There may or may not be small piles of comics all over my apartment, -_-
I am used to manga, mostly, which gets released in the U.S. as tomes.
(I still have about 10 or so issues of Shojo Beat, but that went out of print, *sob*).
Single-issue comics are kind of expensive. Thus far, when I buy something as it's released, I do not then buy the collected volumes.
So like, I have all 40 issues of Buffy Season 8, & have no plans to replace them with volumes 1-7. I like the memories associated with each cover, the letters to the editor in the back, whatever.
So, I'm curious.
In a long-running title, do you keep every issue? Do you sell random one-offs & storylines that you disliked, so that you end up with like, 1-5, 7, 9, 11-15, etc. of a particular title?
Do you store them in boxes or bags, and what kind? Do they slide in boxes under your bed or in a closet, or do you display them somehow on shelves?
Have you given up on storage issues entirely by reading subscribing to digital editions of your favorite titles?
Do you just pirate the titles you want to read?
HOW IS IT DONE?!
I originally wanted to make this post a poll, but decided there were too many possibilities.
As for me, I currently keep mine organized in boxes like these on top of bookshelves, and I label them with cute stationary on the outside so I know what's in each box.
