Want to know why Bags & Boards are so important? Well, keep reading, & I’ll explain all the reasons you should bag & board your comic books, & we’ll even explain the different sizes over time.  

An Ounce of Prevention

Obviously, Bags & Boards prevent damage to comics. In fact, it’s really that simple. For example, the most common ways books get damaged are:

  • Wrinkles
  • Tears
  • Discoloration
