  1. The "Crisis on Infinite Earths" title includes a copy Bk 1/HC, described as a hardcover edition in a silver-colored slipcover with a the title foil-stamped on the front of the slipcase.  I have this copy, but mine is the autographed version.  The six contributing creators of the series signed 2,500 numbered copies, released by Dynamic Forces, Inc. w/ each copy accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.  I'm guessing that unsigned copies were also released, which leads to my question.

    Assuming there are unsigned copies in circulation, should the limited edition signed version be listed separately in the database?  I think this has been the practice with other such signed versions.  If so, what should the item # be?  Seems like the unsigned version would be Bk 1/HC-A and the signed version Bk 1/HC-B.


  2. You can also set your wallpaper to scroll randomly through a folder of covers.  I change it from time to time to a particular title's covers.  You could use CB's existing cover folders or create one that contains only specific covers you want to see.

  3. The database has an issue Bk 1/HC ($39.99) and an issue Bk 1/B ($39.99) - no cover scans are available, but these look like the same book.

    There is no cardstock cover w/ a gatefold ($10.99), nor is there a copy of the same book sealed in a black bag w/ the dripping red S on the front.  I'd like to add these, but I think they should be titled "The Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special" and separate from the "Death of Superman" title that it appears they're going to be under.  These are not reprints of the trade paperback that is the issue of the "Death of Superman" title.



  4. Looking at my copy of Sergio Massacres Marvel (one-shot, June 1996), I see that the database lists the title as "Sergio Aragones Massacres Marvel" - presumably because these words happen to be printed across the top of the cover.  The correct title, as it appears in the indicia, is "Sergio Massacres Marvel."  Any chance this can be corrected?



  5. Glad to hear it, Mark.  One of the things I've always liked about Comicbase is being able to tweak the database to match my wants/needs.

  6. If memory serves, you can create those grading categories and assign values to them, based on the assigned NM value.  Then, when the NM value fluctuates, your self-created category values will also fluctuate accordingly.

  7. I would say it's not in the database yet.  It should be under the ongoing title "Detective Comics" with a modified issue number to distinguish it as a giveaway copy of #27.  Overstreet lists it in the Promotional section of the guide (page 290 in the 51st edition, i.e., the 2021-22 edition) with 1984 as its publishing date.  Assuming this is the copy you're seeking, you could create the issue and then upload it for review so that it can be added to the master database.



  8. I added a cover scan to the Gold Key one-shot currently entitled "Lion (Goldkey)" in the database.  The correct title is "The Lion" - missing the definite article.  Not sure if you'd accept my correcting the title, so thought this would be a better way to fix it.

  9. Possibly, but the cover appears to be black behind the artwork, rather than the shiny silver foil of the copy I have.  I suppose that could be the result of the scanner that was used, but it doesn't look like the actual cover is silver.  The words "Convention Exclusive" do look like they're formatted the same way as my copy.  And, 1/G is a comic convention variant cover, so perhaps this is it.

  10. I have a copy of Justice league (3rd series) #1 with "Convention Exclusive" in the lower left corner, no bar code on the cover.  It has a silver foil cover (front and back).  The front cover image is the same as the standard cover.  Before I enter it as a new variant cover (1/V looks like the next # in sequence), I'm trying to find out if it's one of the variants already listed, for which no cover is available.  Does anybody know?
