After all these years–going on 20 years or so–I finally have begun what only seems like PROPER storage to me, for comics.
I bought a large storage rack–48″ wide, 72″ tall, 24″ deep–and it’s got the capacity to hold 25 longboxes. As of this typing, it’s got 17 1/2 (a shortbox), and I love the setup, and look forward to getting the rest of my boxes situated. (And then begin the process of actually sorting the accumulation and getting back to an actual collection!)
Even the cat seems to approve.
