  1. Never thought I would get a Signature Series book, but for some reason I had to have one. Add me to the club of Stan Lee Signature Series AF15’s.
  2. Such an awesome cover. I’ll take it per PM!
  3. Makes sense. Thanks for solving the mystery for me!
  4. Library of Congress recommends 35% RH for comic book storage. https://www.loc.gov/preservation/care/comics.html ” Good storage is especially critical to the preservation of acidic paper materials. Guidelines for good storage: A cool (room temperature or below), relatively dry (about 35% relative humidity), clean, and stable environment (avoid attics, basements, and other locations with high risk of leaks and environmental extremes) Minimal exposure to all kinds of light; no exposure to direct or intense light Distance from radiators and vents Supportive protective enclosures*”
  5. I have read on the forums and elsewhere that 40-49% is the optimal RH (not everyone agrees). but interestingly the ALA recommends 30-40% RH: http://www.ala.org/alcts/sites/ala.org.alcts/files/content/_MeltzerBkmk16.pdf
  6. For those of us in the Midwest or where the winters are cold and dry, our homes may have 3-5 or more months of humidity in the 30-39% range. I know that humidity >50% is bad for comic storage; what about a space that is consistently dry (30-39%)? Note: I am mainly concerned with high value, CGC-slabbed books.
  7. I’ll take it per PM 👍 I have a lot of Fiction House but it’s my first Planet!
  8. I’ll take it per PM 👍 In my book, Rick’s for sale threads are starting to rival Heritage auctions .. he’s always got awesome inventory...
  9. Per PM I just bought another lower grade copy, but it seems like the kind of book I “need” two of 😊
  10. I would look into Conservation (light Restoration which doesn’t receive the purple label when graded) I am having a cover reattached right now, plus staples cleaned, on a GA book which will then grade out as Conserved (rather than Restored). I believe the timeline is faster versus extensive Resto.
