It's SO good!

... I could almost forget about new Archie stories if DKD came out as a print comic every month. I'd vote for that (if I was allowed to vote) before Your Pal Archie. Nothing against the latter, but it couldn't possibly be as funny as DKD (because ACP wouldn't allow that kind of outrageousness).

1. Did you get the white cardboard ones or the plastic ones? If you got the cardboard ones you can just print the names of the comic titles neatly, but if you got the plastic ones it's better to use one of those label-making machines to make them look really professional (just like in a comic shop with back-issue bins). The label-making machines are not that expensive, so it's not a bad idea if you plan to use divider cards to organize your whole collection.

2. Do you have a lot of issues of Reggie & Me (or are you just talking about the New Riverdale 5-issue miniseries)?

3. Have you ever noticed a regular artist, or one particular artist who appears on Reggie & Me stories more often than others? I've always wondered about that. Assuming, that is, that you're familiar enough with the different artists' styles to be able to identify them by sight, because I know back in the 60s/70s/80s when Reggie & Me was being published they didn't have credits on the stories. I don't have a lot of those issues myself.

I often see label makers at thrift stores though I think it'd be more fun to design your own dividers with a picture of the character on there.


I used to have more Reggie and Me but I'm pretty sure I donated them to my local Half Price Books.


Anyone have any better ideas than long boxes to organize comics? I'm in the process of moving (again...ugh) and some of the plastic tubs I was storing my comics in got crushed in the last move. Thankfully the comics survived unharmed. I have them in those thick cardboard book boxes from U-Haul right now. I find those long/short boxes from comic book shops unwieldy. It's very difficult to flip through comics easily to find what you want if the box is overstuffed. And if it's not overstuffed the comics fall over. I'm asking more for my new place...how to display and easily find comics in a large collection.

The long ones I can understand. But the SHORT ones? How much smaller can the box be and still be useful? There are a couple of solutions. You can make your own (you'll need LOTS of thick corrugated cardboard) spacers for the boxes. Simply take a BIG LONG piece of corrugated cardboard, and cut the height to a little shorter than comic book height, 8"-9"; but you need to leave plenty of length (how much is up to you and the thickness of the cardboard), because you are going to be folding the thing like a zigzag accordion, in sections the same approximate width of a comic (6"-7"), folding it back and forth in alternating directions. This works best with the really thick, double-corrugated cardboard, because you're depending on the cardboard wanting to spring back and expand from a flattened multi-folded zigzag, after you place it in the empty space behind the comics themselves. You'll have to experiment to see how many folds you need to make, depending on the resistance of the cardboard to staying flattened. Start taking groceries home in cardboard boxes instead of bags, and experiment with cutting those up. Those usually have to be pretty strong to hold liquid containers, glass jars, and metal cans. You can always add multiple pieces depending on the amount of space in the box you have to fill. Works pretty well with the short boxes, but they need to be at least half to 2/3rds full of comics. If the cardboard you use still isn't thick enough to be "springy", try overlapping the entire length on itself before you start folding the zigzags to give it a double-thickness to start with. Also, whenever it's feasible (depending how big a piece of cardboard you start with), don't align the folds with the direction of the corrugation -- fold "against the grain".

The other solution is to just to use the short boxes (personally, I gave up on the long ones ten years ago), but you'll have to give up on the idea of being able to flip through the comics. Fill them with comics laid FLAT, and then you don't need to make them any heavier (= "unwieldy") than you want them, but then you're going to need another empty box whenever you want to take them ALL out and look through them, just standing them on end for as long as you're playing around looking for something.

They make those corrugated plastic ones too (same
