Your comic shop will provide you with supplies for protecting your comics. I get the regular new comic size bags and boards. If you buy older comics, there are bigger size bags and boards. Some 70's comics take Silver Age size.
I think to start, look for comics that relate to books you like to read. Or movies or programs you like to watch. Superhero comics can be tricky. Especially when they crossover with each other. If you're worried about expense, consider comics that rarely coincide with each other.
There's a bunch of Batman related books now. It's insane. I stick with just Batman. It's the main book, so it has the best creative team. Just be careful that it's really easy to buy a lot. Stick to what you like, and you'll do fine.
And you're part of a community now. Ask us about some books you're interested in. We'll be honest.
