Comic Collecting in a Cold Climate

Well, another reason to be glad I live in Canada - the cold climate is good for my comics! This from the story of the guy in Alaska who is selling off the Batman #1 that was found in a dresser.

Quote from Fairbanks Daily News:

"Barry Sandoval, director of comic auctions and operations at Heritage, said the auction house has handled many copies of Batman No. 1, but he said Wheat’s copy is notable because the low humidity and cool temperatures in Fairbanks have kept the paper in excellent condition. Old comics were printed on notoriously cheap newsprint, but the pages in Wheat’s copy remain crisp and white."Read more: Fairbanks Daily News-Miner - Fairbanks comic book collector s vast collection puts him in the spotlight
