Otaku No Culture: Remembering the Golden Oldies with Digital Archive Websites. “In the search for great comic books from the yesteryear, most aficionados will have to hit auctions and estate sales to find what they want.

There are digital archivists actively looking to preserve this bit of the past for readers preferring online content.”
