  1. The Amazing Stories (TSR) listed in Comic Books are duplicates of Amazing Stories (Ziff-Davis) in Magazines. The TSR title and issues should be deleted.
  2. When I would submit larger covers with previous versions of CB, I would get a prompt saying " You have X covers that are new or larger than ComicBase has on file. Would you like to submit them?". And then a thank you popup once the covers uploaded. CB2022 doesn't do this. I get a popup without knowing the number of covers that are new/larger and I don't know when the process is done. I know upload speeds are faster these days. But at the least, could you please have the thank you popup appear the same way it does when it is just regular data? Then I know I can move on to whatever I need to do in CB. Thanks
  3. Randall J. Paske said: I'm wondering if newspapers could be spun off to their own section, separate from the Magazines section. As I mentioned earlier, I don't want to exclude magazines entirely. I would, however, exclude newspapers if I could. I can see where tracking all of that stuff in Human Computing's master database might be worthwhile for them, but I doubt many of us want to house a mega-database on our own systems. As ComicBase grows and expands well beyond comics, there may be a need to devise more ways for users to select the portions that meet their needs and exclude those that don't. I've got plenty of magazines related to comics and entertainment, but I don't need a newspaper index. I've got plenty of books, but I don't need an index of romance paperbacks or theological volumes. I second this, if for the only reason that a newspapers database would potentially be larger than all other media combined. Think about, every city has had at least one newspaper at one time or another. Some of the larger cities had multiple ones concurrently and have a publishing history of hundreds of years, daily and weekly.
  4. It's been 2 months and this has not been fixed. I'm posting a new entry just as a reminder.
  5. I kept doing the updates and it stayed as a sketch. I uninstalled before the latest update and it switched. So there you go.
  6. They are pre-code horror comic stories collected/reprinted from different publishers/titles. The book also includes a mini-DVD with a film from the 50's talking about the "dangers" of comic books.
  7. I was browsing through titles and I noticed this: some (I don't know how many) of the Italian comic books don't have the cover price currency listed. When I went to enter the currency using the Quick Change [Ctrl-G], Italian Lira (ITL) is not listed. However, when I went to the cell and clicked the drop-down, it was listed. So what happened and can you fix it? The screenshots I took were from 44 Magnum. This is CB 2022 4K Archive Edition v22.0.1.1601
  8. I miss the genre icons, mainly because the text was already standardized. I didn't have to worry about Nonfiction/Non-Fiction/Non-fiction, Pinups/Pin-ups/Pin-Ups, or Superheroes/Super-heroes/Super-Heroes.
  9. Could you please contact the person who keeps submitting this title under Books and let them know this should be under Comic Books? I have resubmitted this many times and have had emails about where this should belong. I do have a copy and I am the one who first submitted data about it.
  10. And now it becomes another reason to update the User's Guide.
  11. M.O.M.: Mother of Madness does not have a colon in the title according to the indicia.
  12. They may have advertised it to drum up preorders or start demand by having people ask for it at LCS. Not enough demand, so they probably canceled it. Try contacting any of the artists, see what they know.
  13. Whenever I try that I get the 🚫 symbol.
  14. Could this be why I am missing badges as well as my points not showing/updated?
  15. I seem to remember another thread more specific to book vs. comics but I can't find it so... Both Amazing Fantastic Incredible and Hawking are listed under Books. However, they are graphic novel biographies which should put them in the Comic Book category. The thread was talking about these items as books since they are not series but a single published item that only gets reprinted. Since they come under what we are all classifying as comic books, that is where they should be placed.
  16. The IDW series is indexed as Usagi Yojimbo: Dragon Bellow Conspiracy, not The Dragon Bellow Conspiracy. Here are the indicias for issues #1 and 2.
  17. Didn't mean to double-submit.
  18. I think that is why Robert is suggesting it. Plus, it would also help if someone were to buy a mix of books, comics, and magazines.
  19. In the older versions of CB, you could right-click on the cover/logo area above the issues and it would give you the option to either open the cover folder or create one. The current one only has "Show Picture File" but doesn't have creating one. When I click for a new series, I get the main Pictures folder. I then have do drill down to the specific publisher to create a new title folder. But when I have tried, but it doesn't always match.
  20. This would also make it easier for adding batches. I just tried one with books and comics. While it took everything, once I clicked save it jumped to the book title and ignored the comics.
  21. A couple of things about this title: you should include an exclamation point in the title (see indicia) and change the Media type to Magazines. The indicia is the same for all four issues that I have. Thank You. P.S.: I'm guessing the Mark Hamill cover is considered issue #1. Because the Boba Fett one I have does not include an interview with Hamill.
