  1. I don't believe this issue (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/991108/1/Red-Hood-53 ) actually exists. It's not listed in the Grand Comics Database (https://www.comics.org/series/166928/). I think this should be removed from the database.
  2. There is overlap between B&V Friends Forver (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=59556&M=1) and various Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever one-shots (for example, https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=72926&M=1). I'm not sure what the solution is. The various indicias state issue 1 of different titles, but the UPC numbers would seem to indicate they're supposed to be part of a series. Mark Castaneda, any thoughts (and why can't I tag you)?
  3. I would like to propose a capitalization change for DC Vs. Vampires and related titles. I suggest that "Vs." should be "vs." to follow standard capitalization rules.
  4. @Steven L. Dasinger, yes; that was my understanding as well. My question was also to fit into the HC model, so I figured it's better to ask what the intent was instead of guessing.
  5. Hi. i saw DC vs. Vampires - Killers 1/A (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/1130065/1/DC-Vs-VampiresmdashKillers-1-Variation-A) has a cover that's an homage to Batman 423 (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/237565/1/Batman-423). Should that go into the Item Description or the Notes? I'm thinking Item Description, but wanted confirmation first. Thanks in advance, Adam
  6. @Fred Slota, I never received an answer on why the file was download from the forum servers as 0 bytes. Would you like me to try to get you the files directly? Do you have a Dropbox or Google Drive I should upload the file to?
  7. @Fred Slota, the genie cartoon was Shazzan, with Kaboobie the flying camel!
  8. Fair point. I'd asked Mark before and recall he'd said it was OK, but it's just as easy to post here or on Slack
  9. This title is wrong. I've corrected the spelling of League, added a space after the colon, and submitted the correction. I wanted to post here, just in case they don't go through properly.
  10. @Fred Slota, my apologies. I don't know what happened there. I tried downloading and saw that it was 0 bytes as well. However, on the link page itself, it says the page is the file size is 49 kB, which matches what I have locally. @Steven L. Dasinger, do you know if there's someone I can contact to troubleshoot this? For example, can someone check the zip file on the server?
  11. The various printings look to be all over the floor in terms of Notes and/or Item Descriptions. I'm current on updates and just ran rebuild lists, so should be all up-to-date. There's nothing in the item description fields, and some of the notes fields say it collects issues 1-6, others say it collect 1-2, and the first printing (Bk 1) actually says both! Looks like the Collector's Set printings also suffer from this (and maybe even the Deluxe Set issues). Just to add insult to injury, the Bk 1 third printing has the same UPC as the first (I own that one, but don't have access to it for now to check). I'm afraid this needs a good spring cleaning, but I'm afraid I don't have access to the various issues to straighten it out. Can someone here (or on the Editorial Team) straighten it out, please and thank you?
  12. Honestly, I find the information in Item Description useful when I'm working on cover artist corrections to match up variant with the artist it goes with. Sometimes the cover artist information is not correct (against what's printed in the credits in the actual issue) but the info is in the Item Description
  13. Terrific! I'm glad to see someone using it!
  14. Well, THAT only took almost a year instead of "a week or so". Unfortunately, there were some changes to the exported reports used as input data that requered some redesign, and it took waaaaaaaay longer than expected. Shows what shrinking free time will get you... @Fred Slota, I've uploaded the fixed version here: Thanks for your patience, and I hope it fits your needs. Adam
  15. Version 1.3.0


    The original Collection Hole Finder tool, updated for ComicBase 2020 and later Collection Hole Finder came about as effort to enhance ComicBase's ability to list issues missing from a collection (essentially, issues having a Quantity value of 0). While the ComicBase Issue Checklist report applied to missing issues is useful, it is often overwhelmingly large, especially when considering some older titles, such as Action Comics. While any collector will determine that any missing issue is a hole that needs to be filled, I determined that a pragmatic solution was needed, and decided that I would focus on filling holes of finite size. What is a hole? A hole is a grouping of missing issues between issues owned. For example, if I own issues 1 and 5, then the hole is issues 2-4. I settled on a hole size of 5 issues or less. If I own issues 1 and 5, then I'd try to buy issues 2, 3, and 4 eventually. However, if I own issues 1 and 7, then forget about issues 2-6. Once that decision was made, I could export the missing issues checklist just for those titles I had "in stock" into a spreadsheet and start deleting issues that didn't fit into a small enough hole. However, that still meant whittling a report of thousands of issues down to one of tens of issues by hand. Since I'm a programmer for a living, it seemed natural to create a program to parse the text file output from ComicBase. And so, Collection Hole Finder was born. Later on, in the ComicBase forums, others posted with similar frustrations, and it was requested that Collection Hole Finder be shared with other collectors. I was encourage to share the source code with the users, in the hopes that they could recommend (or even code up) enhancements to the program. Please see the "Contact" section to recommend enhancements or share changes.
  16. These are the same issue. One of them should be removed, although I have no real clue as to which one should be removed (probably Annual 2020).
  17. This title doesn't really exist. Instead, it's really part of B&V Friends Forever. Compare https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/1016642/1/BampV-Friends-Forever-Summer-14 with https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/1048852/1/BampV-Friends-Forever-14 . I propose that B&V Friends Forever: Summer be removed.
  18. This issue doesn't really exist, although 2 and 3 do. Instead, issue 1 is Spider-Man: Brand New Day - Extra!! #1. Compare https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/1029180/1/Amazing-SpiderMan-Extra-1 with https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/420186/1/SpiderMan-Brand-New-DaymdashExtra-1 . I propose that Amazing Spider-Man: Extra #1 be removed.
  19. Probably already too late, but I added and submitted those issues last night.
  20. @Steven L. Dasinger, I know it's work, but I think it will still be helpful: not everyone has Archive, so wouldn't be able to make use of Feature 1 (and maybe not Feature 2, either).
  21. @Mark J. Castaneda, in the past, I've submitted title corrections (for right or for wrong) by changing the information and submitting corrections on one of the issues (the thought being the changed title information would be submitted as part of the issue submission). Would that not work?
  22. Someone mistook the shared cover credits on the alternate cover of The Joker (3rd Series) 7/A as individual issues, so each cover artist (the cover artist, cover inker, and cover colorer) were credited with a separate issue. I've corrected 7/A, and both 7/B and 7/C should be deleted.
  23. To answer @Gregory Hecht's question, there is no continuity really between these books. There be some between a couple of books, or even sub-series here and there, but overall, there isn't any.
  24. @Gregory Hecht, on Windows, "control T" brings up the "Titles" pop-up. There's also the folder icon in the upper right (between the "Previous Title" and "Next Title" triangle arrow buttons)
