Does anybody collect PREVIEWS, or do you just pitch 'em when you're done?

If you do keep a collection of them, mind sharing why?
Just wondering.

I used to, but then I needed the room for actual comics and my game collection.

Now I just keep the last 3 months worth, so I can see what's coming out before I go to the comic shop, or to see if my LCS screwed up my order or if I did.

yeah, I'd have to imagine that anybody who does collect these would need a HUGE amount of space.

There's information in them that is worth preserving. Online credits aren't always right.

Solicitations three months in advance are usually less right.


I kept them for a while when I was a teenager, but once I put my mail order together I chuck it.

For those that keep them for the covers I'd suggest just carefully cutting them out. They're perfect pin-up size.

I collect 'em....but I collect everything relating to comics. I even have a growing stack of Comic Shop News and an Avengers kids activity book.

I keep about the last six issues or so, but nothing beyond that.

I had 30+ file boxes full, going back to 1989 Diamond and Capital.

Sold 'em all $100.00 about 1 year ago.

Could have filled a dumpster!
