Recently, it has come to my attention that my nerd room of doom has not been arranged or straightened in a year or more. Longboxes are everywhere, and some of my favorite display items are stacked in the corner in a jumble of boxes, never tasting the light of day. Though most of it is packed well or in protective storage containers, I still wonder how the high-end collectors find the time and energy to organize and display their collections. Granted, it’s a little different bagging and boarding your comics when you’ve just spent a six hour shift working at doing the same, but the amount of care and effort shown by some collector’s is nothing short of astonishing.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced “aye-kee-yah”) isn’t afraid to admit that they’re toys, asking:
How much time do you end up devoting to maintaining and managing your hobby?
(For the digital comics reader, would the equivalent be defragmenting your hard drive?)
