Concrete finisher by day and comic collector and CBR vampire by night
I've beign collecting comics for 23 years off and on. And a painful lesson i just relearned today is tape is BAD
I was looking and reading a couple of my older books Strange Tales 120 to be exact and i took the tape off the bag a stuck it to the side of the bag to reuse. removed the comic and read it and then proceed to set said comic on the table...... on top of the bag and board....ARRRGGGGHHHH. i went to pick up the comic to rebag it and to my great displeasure and dismay the bag came with it. the tape has stuck itself to the back cover of the book. After a few cuss word and and jumping up and down, i painfully tried to remove the tape. i got most of it off without damage but not all. That @#$%@#% tape remove a small portion of the back cover from which there is no fixing or repair. I dont know why i wanted to save the tape because normally i just cut it and use a new piece to reseal the bag. i did the exact same thing years ago which lead me to cutting the tape. .
For all you out there. DONT SAVE THE TAPE USE A NEW PIECE. throw the removed tape in the garbage before removing the comic to read. Dont do what i just did.
