  • I've heard that storing your long/short comic boxes against an outside wall is dangerous for them. Is this still the case even if they are always out of the light, kept in a cool room with fans blowing near them, and stored upright in proper comic boxes? If it's still an issue, does anyone know what I might be able to put on the wall to go between the boxes and the wall to help protect them? In my new living environment, against the wall is my only option.

  • Never heard of that one before. I wouldn't worry about it. I have stored comic boxes in probably the most impractical ways over the years and my comics were fine. One I can remember was while going through a divorce I kept them in a outside public storage for almost two years.

  • About 40 boxes of mine have been in a basement room up against a concrete outside wall for almost 5 years and there's nothing wrong with them. I also have a bunch of longboxes stacked in an outside public storage shed with no climate control (half of the comics in there not even bagged) and nothing is wrong with them.
