Haven't taken the comic out in more than 20 years and was kept in a hot and humid storage. I doubt these were acid free backing boards and bags

I was keeping this one as a reminder to check bags and boards, but yours is much prettier!

Man

That sucks

And at the same time it doesnt

Was the comic attached to the board

Or was the extraction effortless?

This is common with cheap backing boards used for a long period of time.

Nice. Brings back memories of going through my childhood collection that somebody shoved to the back of the attic to sit for 15-20 years.

I dont think there was any damage or ink transfer-for example the black areas on comic are white areas on backing board-which means contact with black ink delayed board tanning and the other inks delayed tanning to different degrees resulting in an image being formed.
