I just wanted to get peoples’ general feelings on the smell of smoke on comics.
I opened an order from an Ebay Seller today and the box was well packed with bubble wrap and plastic bags. I was overcome with a plume of cigar aroma when I opened the box, though. I put my nose up to the bags, the bubble wrap, and the bags around the comics and the whole thing reeked of cigars.
Hoping for the best, I opened one of the comics and sniffed the actual comic, inside and out. Thankfully, the comics themselves don’t smell like cubanos. The smoke smell seemed to not have permeated the bags and boards. Looks like this is a simple re-bag, re-board situation.
It was worrying for a second, though.
