That’s why we offer to board and bag every book you order. Helping you prevent most accidents as you transport them home through this unpredictable world. For as little as $0.25 per comic, we will board and bag your books and have them waiting for you when you come through the door at Pastimes.

For those of you willing to take the risk, trying to get them home unprotected, we also have boxes and bulk boards and bags for all of your home storage needs. Just let us know how we can help you better protect your universe.

Once you get your comics home, you may want to follow these guidelines for handling and storing your comics to get the longest life out of your books:

  1. Keep them pretty by washing your hands before handling them. If you have older comics with value, you really should wear gloves
  2. Make sure you store Your comics in an acid-free cardboard box.
  3. Store your boxes in a cool, dry, and dark location. (Below 70 degrees Fahrenheit and between 50-60% relative humidity).
  4. Keep an eye and a nose on them – occasionally check for any change in color, mold, or mildew.
  5. Insure your collection – Most Home Owners Policies do not cover comic books. If you have a large collection and/or books that are valuable, ask your insurance agent about getting the proper coverage you need.
  6. If you have any other concerns or questions about how we could help you protect your comics 

Boards and bags may not be effective protection against chainsaws.
