How many comics will a DrawerBox hold and how does this compare to a long box?
DrawerBoxes will hold approximately 235 comics with boards and bags and more if boards are not used (although we recommend protecting your comics with boards). There are several slightly different lengths of long boxes on the market; however, we have found that 29" long boxes hold approximately 270 comics with boards and bags. DrawerBoxes hold approximately 15% fewer comics than a 29" long box. Note that these counts assume an average page count for a comic and filling the box with 1"-2" of open space.
We have heard claims that a long box holds 300 comics. We believe that this count comes from years ago when most long boxes were 29" long and before boards and bags were created.
