Interestingly enough, the hardest things to move by far were some of the items I treasured the most--my big Absolute Editions and Omnibus collections of comics. I've built up a few of those deluxe books over time, and these big ol' honkers were extremely tricky to pack, mainly because their large dimensions made putting them in a small box impossible, and their weight resulted in some gigantic boxes that were wide enough to fit them being relatively under-filled because just having a small number of these gigantic books resulted in containers that weighed what was basically a metric ton.
|Just imagine trying to move even a few of these sorts of books.
In the end the only advice I can offer to people who have a lot of comics or graphic novels is to either sell a lot of their stuff before any of the times they move, or to just never move. Seriously though, I don't even have much in the way of comics out here in Missouri, at least compared to the nightmare of boxes and books back in my parents house in NY. Lord help me when the day comes that I have to move all of that stuff from my earlier years of comic-loving.
