So recently I have been tending to my varied collection of comic books. I have been bagging, boarding, filing, boxing and generally admiring it. Then it hit me: I can't keep this up.
My collection is already filling three very large long-boxes that fill my room up. On top of that, they're a tad unsightly. As a consequence, I've been thinking about switching entirely to the trade format.
I already have a tonne of trades, primarily hardcover editions, and they look beautiful on my bookshelves. They take up less room than comics, are more readily accessible and more easily moved.
My question then, readers, is this. Have any of you attempted to make this switch? If so, was it successful, or do you regret it?
I love my comic book store, so I'd still be buying from there for the social aspect of the hobby. Coming home with a pile every Wednesday, though, just seems less-and-less feasible and, ultimately, unsustainable.
