Default Storing Comics

How are you storing your comics these days? Long boxes seem to let them flop around if not full..And now with grading, can't really let that happen..Trying to figure out how to store the new things..

I make sure they are standing straight up. If the long box is not full I put stuff in there like books so they dont warp because they were leaning on their back or front.

Same here, if my box isn't full, I'll put towels or some sort of clothing in the box to make sure the books stay upright.

I usually put some books in front when there is space. If you've got the money, you can put all of your books in toploaders. That may prevent against damage with an non-full box. Not sure though. I haven't tried it.

This I learned the hard way I had a box that wasn't full and had some books bend.

I keep my nice books separated though. I'm so worried about bending any of those!
