I had bound a bunch of comics a few years ago but had to sell them. I've been rebuilding my collection through trades and am considering binding my New 52 Batman titles together, but I noticed that in trades the text is often very close to the spine. I'm looking for advice on binding trades. Any experiences (specifically with the New 52 era of trades), volume thickness, preparation, etc. I searched the board but couldn't find anything easily that could help me out. I'm just curious what you guys can tell me. I'd love to see some examples.
