Nearly every week, I head to my local comic book shop, Pop Culture Comix, to pick up a comic or two.
I read Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel + Faith and Captain Marvel on a regular basis and occasionally pick up additional comics. Just in the past few months, I’ve picked up Uncanny Avengers, Spike, Willow, Deadpool and a Doctor Who/Star Trek crossover.
I have a great time reading the comics and I always enjoy how the artwork and storylines. However, I’ve come to discover a problem.
What do I do with the comics when I’m done with them? Currently, they’re piled up all around my apartment and I’ve been trying to avoid piles and clutter.
(We’re taking a moment here for Mom to stop giggling.)
Do I go further down the rabbit hole and buy a storage box, bags and boards and start storing them properly after I’ve read them? If so, what is my ultimate goal? Am I hoping that someday someone will want to buy them or read them? Will I read them again?
Or do I start giving them away or discarding them or selling them after I’m done with them? Will I regret it if I get rid of them? Will it feel like a waste of money?
What do you think?
