The return of DRAWERBOXES™!


That's right, we have a huge shipment of DrawerBoxes™ on the way... they should be here by the end of next week and won't last long. If you want some reserved for you, let your Friendly Neighborhood Comix Connection Counter Monkey™ know! What's a DrawerBox™? Read on:

"DrawerBoxes™" are storage boxes designed for comics that fill from the end rather than the top. They are actually a two-part container, consisting of an outside shell that provides support and a drawer that slides out of the shell from the end. This eliminates the need to repeatedly move boxes to get the contents of the box at the bottom of the stack since all of the boxes can be opened just like a filing cabinet. And the shells are made of extra durable cardboard, reinforced in such a way that they will support much more weight than the old-fashioned long boxes. Yet, because each box is separate and has handles on each end, they are just as portable. DrawerBoxes™ can be stacked in any configuration you want and every comic in each drawer is still accessible. You can even remove the drawer in the box at the bottom of the stack and leave the rest of the boxes in place while you peruse your collection.

More info HERE at the Collection Drawer Company website!


We'll also have a supply of the BoxLocs (to add stability to multiple stacks) and the adjustable DrawerRails, which are awesomely brilliant at keeping comics in partially filled DrawerBoxes™ from sliding around.


These are the real deal, not those cheaper low-quality knock-offs! DrawerBoxes are $14.99 each, and Half-boxes are $13.99... get 'em while they're hot!
