  1. Here is a first draft of information about the Advanced Find. Let me know if something needs to be added, deleted, modified, or explained better. ******************************************** I believe the database currently used by CB is SQLite. Here is a link to the SQL (Structured Query Language) for SQLite Select. https://www.sqlite.org/lang_select.html Here is a link to the Built-in Scalar SQL Functions https://www.sqlite.org/lang_corefunc.html Because of the limits put on Advance Find, a lot (most) of the SQLite documentation is of no use but it will get

  2. By the way, if you use the Find box (top middle of the window) and change it to Publisher, you can start typing a Publisher name and see what shows up. Since the part left off of the Publisher is on the end, this should find any you are looking for that are already in the database. Don't trust the Setup->Publisher listing as not all Publishers are in there (not sure why). For example, I checked there for Dream Weaver and didn't see it. But the Find DID find the Titles that are using it.

  3. First, I would be careful about adding Publishers. For example, 'Dream Weaver Press' would just be 'Dream Weaver' CB usually leaves of common endings for a Publisher. These include (but are not limited to) Press, Meida, Publishing, ext. Sometimes they are added if there are Publishers with similar names.

  5. If the variants have different paper, usually that also resulted in a different cover price and that would automatically qualify those variants as trackable in CB as separate items. Personally, even if the cover price was the same, I would recommend that the variants be tracked separately if the paper stock is different. Maybe it is worth bringing this up at this week's Livestream?

  6. I've had all the variants listed above in my collection for years and they are only now showing up as unrecognised items. From a collector's point of view, the kind of paper a comic is printed on makes a difference to me. I would would much rather have the glossy paper than newsprint as the glossy paper ages much better. I know that if I bought a comic off of Atomic Avenue with the expectation that it was printed on glossy paper and instead received one printed on newsprint, I would not be happy. And for what it's worth, I bought all the newsstand editions from mycomicshop.com, an

  7. When entering credits with multiple names, please don't use 'and' to join them together. For example: The cover of a book has 'Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens' Incorrect: Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens Correct: Judith Reeves-Stevens, Garfield Reeves-Stevens Multiple people are listed: Incorrect: Ross Andru and Dick Giordano Correct: Ross Andru, Dick Giordano Incorrect: John Buscema, Gil Kane, Neal Adams, and Boris Vallejo Correct: John Buscema, Gil Kane, Neal Adams, Boris Vallejo Also, just enter names. For example Incorrect: John Buscem
