Exclamation Caring for your manga help

Hi, so I recently found out that your manga yellows when in the light over a period of time. (I'm a newbie)
Is this true?
If so I hear you can buy manga bags on the internet, thing is I'm not allowed to buy things off the internet. Can regular plastic bags work? Anyother tips and trick I could do?

I would go to a comic store. They should have those manga bags you talk about. They will do the same thing that comic slips do. You are basically putting them in a "safe bag" where the mold and stuff can't get to it. The air in a storrage area like a closet isn't good for that kind of paper and sitting there not only collects dust, but collects mold, which in time will ruin the pages

Considering jason totally did not read the op post...

Yes the sun will yellow them, even in a bag.
Put it in a comic bag and in a dark, dry covered area if you want to preserve them properly
