    I only buy tpb or omnibuses and I display them on a shelf like novels.

    What few single issues I still buy I eventually resell and get hardcover or Omni if enough issues warrant such a book.
    Single issues have no value sans a few issues anymore, especially modern era books cause a new #1 always lurks and no one is dead for long. At best a first appearance is worth hanging on to.

    While I have my single issues though they are just in a comic long box in the closet.

    I use comic book short boxes and store them in my closet. My trades and graphic novels I have on bookshelves in my bedroom.
    Favorite teams. Avengers, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    I still buy tons of single issues weekly, but I almost never re-read them. Once the story arcs are released in a prestige format I will almost always pick it up unless I happened to not enjoy the story enough to have it in the oversized format. That said, Marvel includes a free digital code with every single issue, which is great for referencing back plot points and for reading random books on the go. I use the Marvel App on my iPad (and occasionally iPhone) and at last count I’m up to over 2,000 issues in my digital library!

    I only display the significant or best issues on the bookshelves I regularly access, like, maybe 3-5 of them.
    The rest is in my old bookshelves in a different room that I only read... maybe once a year.

    If you have many I recommend long boxes divided by series, arranged alphabetically or chronologically, maybe with homemade, different color bookmarks or post-it, kinda like making your own library.

    I use boxes and spreadsheet to track what I own, for easier reading I have them bound into trades.

    Looks like there is really no way to display single issues for easy reading unlike collected editions which can stand up at least...
