Comics: keep em or get rid?

Ah the eternal question. After you've bought, read and enjoyed your comics, what do you do with them?

Do you hoard them in a long-box somewhere? Acquiring more boxes when needed and sending the old ones to the loft? Do you sell them for a tidy sum? Maybe on eBay or at a car boot sale etc?

Do you throw them away? They are meant to be a disposable medium after all. And they make good material for colourful art projects and the like, if you don't mind getting the scissors to them. Or do you share the wealth and simply give them away, to an interested nephew maybe, or a penpal who doesn't have a local comic purveyor?

Personally, I tend to keep a few boxes handy for things I wanna reread, and the best of the best stories have the comics disposed of to be replaced by the trade paperback. Anything else is either given away, sold, or left in a big unwanted pile under the bed. I can't bring myself to throw them away, it'd be like burning a book!

I Only just got into Comics and haven' got enough for a long box yet. I love my graphic novels because it is easier to display them on a book shelf but I honestly don't know with singles. I dont' want to put them away, I want them to be there, I love to lend them out and let people experience them but I am never to bothered if they don't make it back to me :-) However, being an illustrator, I doubt I could ever throw them away. However I am not adverse to using them within my own art. Most inspiration and research.

My wall of inspiration! Pages taken from older comics that I bought as one offs that I look at in times of need!

Mine live on a shelf, though I know Ben has several boxes worth of his old collection. I honestly have switched to graphic novels, so I can get the whole story arc in one go.
