I finally finished going through all my comics. It took a lot longer than I thought, simply because it was far too easy to get sidetracked into reading a lot of them. But, the job is done, and here's all that's left:
Yep, two boxes. Two boxes out of an undetermined number of comics, because I didn't count them and because I had stacks and stacks that never made it into boxes at all. I definitely started off with a heck of lot more than two boxes' worth of comics! Originally, I wanted to pare down the collection to only one box. I couldn't quite bring myself to get rid of that many comics, so I settled for two boxes -- but at least they aren't packed to the gills. There's still room for more!
Best of all, I got rid of most of THESE #&%*$ things:
The only comics still in bags are the ones that have some damage to them. Otherwise, NO MORE BAGS -- and I'm certainly not going to miss any of them.
Now all I have to do is figure out what to do about that huge bookcase full of graphic novels ...!
