Organization is a special problem for everyone, and no less so for comic collectors. We had a bunch of ideas for alternatives to the traditional short box come up in the answers to a reader question, but here’s a new alternative: The Comic Tomb.
Las Vegas comic shop Comic Oasis came up with the Tomb as a solution to storing their own back issues — SO MUCH BETTER than the floppy cardboard boxes I’ve pawed through.
Update 2019: Comic Oasis has closed, but we’re keeping this post up for your inspiration!
No two Comic Tombs are the same (unless you order, like, a fleet of Tombs for your library!) and my favorite is this little model, where you can see the books without even opening the drawer.
LATE BREAKING NEWS!
After commentors asked, I got in touch with the Comic Tomb guys to find a price for this particular model. $975 before taxes or shipping. I was also informed that they’ve begun applying graphics!
Again, Comic Oasis has closed… but we feel like some of y’all could DIY this concept pretty well yourselves!
