I take comic books really seriously.
At this point, they are not just our pride plus joy, but also our retirement fund.
I have been amassing our comic collection for years, preserving it perfectly, so when the time is right plus the market is moderate I can sell the whole thing plus “money out” for a pressing payday. I would be lying if I said that I collected comics for their financial value, though. I started buying them because I prefer to study them. I prefer them so much I have a dedicated temperature control plan for our comic book storage room. This may sound prefer a foolish waste of money, but hear me out — the Heating plus Air Conditioning plan was an investment into the future. Comic books can degrade really suddenly if the air quality is low, plus the temps plus humidity levels are high. Comics lose their value if the condition deteriorates, so this extra air handler plus dehumidifier for the storage room is simply to protect our investment in all these books! One day our comic collection might be worth hundreds of thoUSAnds of dollars, but separate from temperature control plus humidity regulation, they will be worth nothing, and now the room has its own control unit, so I can keep it locked down at just the right settings. What’s more, I have an app on our smartphone that allows me to check the control device studying plus adjust them from someplace, even if I am not home! Right now the Heating plus Air Conditioning plan is worth more than the comics, but one day that will change!
