Important Updates – Covid, Marvel, TV Shows, DC is being run by boneheads and Comics New this week.

Covid & Comics Questions answered:

Can I get coronavirus (covid19) from my comic books?  
Answer
: No, Coronavirus under average conditions and temperature lives no longer then 5 minutes on paper.  The maximum recorded lifespan is 30 minutes with a heavy viral load[1]

Can I get coronavirus (covid19) from the backer board that my comic comes with?
Answer:
No, the backer boards are the same as paper,

Can I get coronavirus (covid19) from the bag that the comic comes in?
Answer:
Not really, coronavirus can live longer on the polyethylene comic bag, but it doesn’t live that long. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states “It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching an object, like packaging or a container, that has the virus on it AND then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but in general, because of poor suitability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is a very low risk of spread from packaging. This is not the main way coronavirus spreads.”[3]

So you’re telling me that if I lick a comic book I can get covid19?
Answer:
We do not allow, nor have we ever allowed licking or tasting of comic books in the store.  Under state law, we ask every customer wear a mask to prevent the “accidental” licking of comic books, but also to prevent respiratory droplets from entering the air, the main transmitter of coronavirus (covid19).  Tasting comics in the privacy of your own home is your business, very weird and extremely unlikely to give you covid19.  

What additional steps can I take to protect myself and my comics from coronavirus?
Answer
:  The true Super Men and Women at The National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC), part of Homeland Security’s Office of National Laboratories (ONL), state Coronavirus will die in sunlight in 2 minutes [4][5][6]

* Put your bagged and boarded comics in the sun, 2 minutes each side, front and back.  Your comics will be clean, disinfected and unharmed.  

Note: Homeland Security Office of National Laboratories (ONL) runs 5 out of the 12 Bio Safety Level 4 labs (BSL-4) in the country, including the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (Kansas) and Plum Island Animal Disease Center (New York) and study some of mankind's truly scariest human and animal diseases like Ebola, Hendra virus, Junin (Argentinian mammarenavirus), Lassa (Lassa mammarenavirus or LASV), Macacine alphaherpesvirus 1 (B virus), Machupo mammarenavirus, Marburg (BSAT – Bioweapon), Ordog Fever or BHF (Machupo mammarenavirus variant), Purpura Variolosa (Variola major "Smallpox" variant)
