Microchamber Interleaving paper can be used with all collections, whether paper-based or photographic.
Comic book paper is made from tree pulp. A tree's cellulose material, LIGNIN, turns the paper into ACID over time. Most people know that a bag will help protect a comic but don't know why. Exposure to open air greatly accelerates acid decomposition, but even with the best bags money can buy (mylars), your comics will still turn yellow then brown and eventually crumble into tiny brittle shards that disintegrate into the wind, completing the cycle of life by fertilizing the growth of new trees. It's a tragic love story. Acid loves your comics so much that it destroys them so no one else can have them.
You can prolong the life and current condition of your comics by absorbing acid and other byproducts of decomposition and prevent acid migration by using MICROCHAMBER PAPER. Place one sheet between the front cover and first page and one between the back cover and last page. Some collectors place one sheet in the middle of the book.
There are several types of paper on the market for various industrial purposes. Beware of sellers trying to sell them for comics. Microchamber Interleaving Paper with SPZ zeolite is the only technology designed for absorbing acid from paper.
