  1. I'm trying to find this series in the database and am beginning to think it's not in there. It's an italian edition. According to the Grand Comics Database, it ran for 77 issues between 1967-1970 w/ issue numbers 575-651. I have some issues and would like to upload covers, storylines, etc. Has anyone heard of this series, or perhaps knows within which Superman title it's hiding? r/ Mike
  2. Update: A system restart fixed the problem - though I don't know what caused the problem in the first place.
  3. This is the Bell, Book & Comic store variant. There are two versions of this variant cover; I have both to add, but am not sure about the issue numbering. The trade press cover was a print run of 3,000 copies; the virgin cover was a print run of only 1,000 copies. Since the master db currently goes to issue 1/K, I figure I'll add 1/L and 1/M. Yes? r/ Mike
  4. For some reason unknown to me, I'm unable to check for updates. When I select this command from the drop-down menu, nothing happens until I repeat the action. Then, a dialog box opens and requests my Comicbase account username/password. Unfortunately, the combination isn't recognized when I enter it. Any thoughts? Ideas? r/ Mike
  5. I think this hardcover book should be moved from Comic Books to Books. Granted, there are a few comic panels reprinted here and there throughout the book, but it's at least 95% original text about the creation of WW, with the panel reprints being used to enhance the text. r/ Mike
  6. Same as with Generations Shattered, this title should not have a colon in it.
  7. This DC one-shot w/ cover date March 2021 is titled "Generations Shattered" on its cover and also in the indicia. Based on this, I recommend the colon be removed from the title as listed in the database. r/ Mike
  8. The database has a hardcover copy; this was also published as a softcover edition. Unfortunately, there is no "softcover" entry in the Binding Type category, so I'm wondering how to enter the softcover version.
  9. Today (2/20/2021) I found my signed copy w/ the three autographs. It's not a Dynamic Forces variant. The back of the sealed bag says Beckett & Associates, 675 E. Big Beaver Rd, Troy MI 48083. $4.99 is stamped on the front of the bag. The barcode stamped on the bag is 728192951008. It has the die-cut cover overlay with Batman swinging on the rope; the three autographs are on the half-cover. I think this is a variant distinct from the other variants listed in the master db list.
  10. Just FYI - I'm also not on Facebook. This forum is just about the extent of my online social media participation.
  11. Brian, your description sounds very much like mine; I also use an SSD, and the situation hasn't changed, despite optimizing my computer as Mark described. My gut tells me it's related to the 2020 version, but the delay didn't start immediately upon converting to the 2020 version.
  12. Craig, I find the same situation you describe, re: a corrected error still showing up in the search list, but yielding negative results if I search on it after I've made the correction(s). Rebuilding the list to update the index as Steven recommended fixes that, at least, it always has for me - until the error recurs in the master database and gets downloaded into my database.
  13. Had a pleasant conversation with Pete, and he found the problem and wrote a solution. I rebuilt my pictures list and have tried a half dozen issues, all successful wrt letting me download the cover in the CB database. Thanks! Mike
  14. Hercules Unchained, that is! Besides showing up in its proper place, this issue is also in the database under the series title "Hercules Unchained" with only one issue to the run, issue #1121. The latter record should be removed. r/ Mike
  15. Yep, good question. I'm also wondering if the reset will return the columns to their default order from the rearranged order I use, along with having adjusted some column widths, renaming some custom fields, colors, etc. r/ Mike
  16. I updated my software to the new release this morning. Aside from a small cosmetic change in the color of the background, it seems to be operating properly. However, when I entered ctrl <T> to bring up the title list, the dialog box appeared left of center on the screen, far enough left of center that I dragged it back to where my eyes are used to going. Every time I open the title list, it opens far left of center; I can't find a way to get it to open where I want it (centered on the screen). Is this a locked accompanying feature of the new version, or is there some way I can reset a preference so that the dialog box will open where I want it? r/ Mike
  17. Re: above - I forgot to add that I execute step 2 above on an issue for which I have no cover in the appropriate picture folder.
  18. 1. I open a title, of which I have some of its issues and covers. 2. I click on the far left box of a row to highlight the row. 3. With the row highlighted, I right-click my cursor and select "Download Cover." The pop-up window appears "No new or larger covers for the selected items are currently available" This has been happening regardless of whether the quantity cell contains '1' or '0' (re: step #2). r/ Mike
  19. Here's another piece of information to add to the mystery - I encountered the same problem with Shadow Comics #34 (Vol. 3 #10) this morning, and upon checking AA, I see that there is a cover scan available on the site. What's ironic is that it's a cover scan I uploaded previously; I know it's mine because of the "Bidwell" scribbled in pencil on the cover. I have that copy in front of me. However, my original scanned image is no longer in my picture folder and when I try to download it, I get the "no cover available" message.
  20. I'm using the Archive Edition (v3297). This issue started on Tuesday, 7/14/20, never an occurrence prior to that. I've been using the Archive Edition since it was first released.
  21. Continuing from the previous post - I submitted for review a cover scan of my copy, no prompt to ask if I wanted to send the cover. Then, I replaced it with a big-ass version of the same scan. This version did prompt the dialog box telling me that I have a cover scan bigger than what CB has, and would I like to upload it now - which I did. It appears that I'm getting the "no cover available" when there is, in fact, a cover available, and presumably I'm not being asked if I want to upload a cover I created because the covers I create are smaller than what CB already has. I understand the software not wanting a cover that is smaller than what CB already has, but none of this explains why I get the "no cover available" message when I attempt to download a cover. I'll add here that I'm only trying to download a cover that I don't already have in my picture folder. r/ Mike
