    Two questions:

    Is there a site for high resolution comic images? I'm mostly a Marvel and DC guy, not too much into the independents.

    Also, how do you store your comics? I've been bagging and boarding for the last 2 years I got back into them, but I'm thinking of just bagging them from now on to save space, which I don't have enough of. I mean, they're stored in comic boxes with bags so no real need for boards, right?

    Well, the boards help keep the comic flat, so the spine doesn't bend. If you're selling them in the future, a discriminating collector will notice a bent spine and may give you less. I've always boarded and bagged my comics.. Lately I've just been getting TPBs though, just because I'm more interested in reading a story and can stop worrying about taking out individual comics.

    What type of high res images are you looking for? Cover art or page art?

    I'm a big Batman and Spiderman fan-I like Alex Ross in particular. There was a good thread on here with lots of comic images I harvested, but I'd like more.
