  1. I was updating my inventory tonight and came across this title. I noticed that listed are issues 7 & 8 with their respective covers and UPC's. I don't have these, so I searched for both in eBay, Google, Wikipedia, Amazon, etc. Seems like they may have never been published because they were nowhere to be found. Can someone please confirm if this is accurate?

    Thank you!

     

  2. Mark, I have to disagree with what is happening here. I clicked on the link that you provided for all Action Comics 100 variants thinking that their source was Atomic Avenue. However, I have already run across the following:

    1000 Variation V lists Midtown Comics Variant Cover by Olivier Coipel (in CB, the same is listed as V33) and,

    1000 Variations O, P list Forbidden Planet Variant Covers (regular & virgin) by Jock (yet neither one even appears in CB)

    So what is the problem here now?  And YES, I have the current version of CB with all content updated through today...

  3. I am having serious issues with the new format that was employed a few months back. For example, I have 25 different copies of Action Comics 1000 that in following the old format I was adding newer variants using the 1000/A-2, 3, 4, 5, etc. format. Now all of these seem to follow the new format of 1000/V2, 3, 4, 5, etc. format. So what are the problems?

    First, the 'V' format for Action Comics starts at V29 so all of those that I have in the single and teen digits do not even appear. Second, and even if they did, how would I go about adding/changing them to the new format without having to do so one by one? 

    AND if this helps anyone figure this out here is a complete list of the ones that I have in stock (cover artist is mentioned): A-2, RUDE, A-3, M. CHO, A-4, GIBBONS, A-5, ALLRED, A-6, STERANKO, A-7, MIDDLETON, A-8, JURGENS, A-9, BERMEJO, A-11, DELL'OTTO, A-13, G.PEREZ, A-16, LAU, A-18, DANIEL, A-20, N. SCOTT, A-21, COIPEL, A-22, MATTINA, A-27, GLEASON, A-29, KIRKHAM, A-31, FABOK, A-34, N. ADAMS, A-36 JURGENS and A-38, MAHNKE.

    One final note. I have some many other titles that I have this same problem with that it isn't even funny. The format issue from old to new is rampant. Can't anyone come up with a fix for this so that changes don't have to be addressed one by one?

     

  4. Please note that I ran into several issues that are listed towards the end of the series that do not appear to be in the right place. These include 700, 700/A, 701, 701/A, 702 and 702/A.

    I had all of these marked as in stock but then also found them listed under The Mighty Thor (2011-12, 2017-2018). I transferred them over to that series but please consider updating the database for the original series so that they no longer appear in that series.

  5. Please note that when I clicked on this issue, the picture that appears is for a copy of the series Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda. I was able to delete it using the Show Pictures Folder but when I went back and tried to download the cover, the same one shows up again (and yes, my version of CB is current with no new updates available at this time). Please advise.

  6. Hello. I have recently had to reinstall CB twice within the past 2 weeks. When I tried just a few minutes ago to once again both preview and print the collection report for

    the titles that I own, what follows below continues to appear. First, where can I find the option to Add and Remove Programs and 2) Do I really need to reinstall CB for a

    THIRD time? 

    Please let me know. Thanks!

  7. Within the lasts two days, I have lost the ability to add new issues using the CTRL-J action in conjunction with the scanner. I typically scan the barcode and it automatically jumps to the series/issue number if the barcode already exists. Now it not only is not doing that, but if I type in the series name in the Find field and then click on the search icon, I am receiving the response of 'No matches found'.

    I then have to take several steps just to get to the title that I am looking for (i.e., Fantastic Four (4th series), Iron Fist (5th series)). Please, does anyone know what may have happened here? I had NOT changed any of my existing settings...

  8. I am receiving the following messages on a regular basis when clicking on the desktop icon to start CB:

    1) Having trouble clearing the list of selected titles. Database is locked.

    2) Had trouble clearing issue report selections. Database is locked.

    In addition, I receive a message on the side that states that Sidekick is locked. 

    Any ideas as to what may be happening here?

     

     

     

  9. Mark, thank you but it is not just related to variant issues. I recently went back to check an X-Men series older than the most current and the covers that I had seen before (and was "tracking" for future purchase were not available when I downloaded the last update. If I as a user, or you all as providers constantly update covers that become available or are new, shouldn't they "stay there" from update tp update? Let me know. Thanks again.

  10. Hello. This is a continuing problem when I upload download the new updates. The covers that were there beforehand disappear. For example, the majority of the Amazing Spider-Man #800 issues/variants are not there on a continuing basis. This becomes really annoying, especially now that the issue naming convention changed from the old format (800/A) to the new format (800/V51)...just an example. Please help!

  11. I was checking some of the variants for #600 that I had purchased earlier this month and found them under this title. However, the covers for others that I already owned were not present and I could not download them. Long story short, I found all of them (and the covers) listed under "The Uncanny X-Men" series 1981-2011, 2016. I believe that this is where they actually belong and have deleted the others from the 3rd Series. Please include this correction in the next update so that they do not appear under both. Thank you!

  12. At some point in 2020, several Marvel titles were going to have variant covers which I believe were dedicated to Morbius. While I still see these listed in CB, does anyone know if these were actually published? I have checked eBay several times and have never seen these listed. LMK. Thanks!

  13. I was fortunate over this past weekend to receive a box from a local collector that was full of Marvel, DC, Image, and other 'special' comics and inserts that were only available via a subscription to Wizard The Magazine. Also included were several FCBD editions. Regarding the Wizard items, what is the best way to find out where they might be located in CB? Some have UPC and other codes but not all are picked up by using CTRL-J or the barcode scanner. For example, I have two copies of Dynamite's Project Superpowers Chapter Two Prelude (Only $1.00) that is not in the listing for that series (does have a UPC 'label') but it was not read). Any ideas?

  14. First let me address your comment about adding a quantity in stock. After downloading the latest update today, this issue was in my inventory, but the cover that I had just added last week was not. Second, about the editors at HC not knowing about them, when I download updates only then do I add my new variant issues because it is obvious that they are not already accounted for. Upon doing so, I then 'Submit New or Corrected Data' and even receive the message on a regular basis that there is a larger scan available for upload (I always click 'Yes'). And to your comment about if someone else has added 1/w versus 1/W, not sure what you mean about that. Again, if there is nothing in the update... And lastly, do not understand you last comment. What exactly am I accomplishing by contacting support? I am the one scanning the cover that they do not already have. I thought that one of the great features of CB is that users can submit updates to help not only the CB staff but all of our fellow users as well. If I worked for them, I would certainly welcome that support from my customers. Oh well, just the thoughts of a typical collector who doesn't like having to do things twice.

  15. Hello. I often purchase variant covers from retailers such as Bulletproof, Unknown, Comics Elite, etc. Lately I have noticed that after creating the issue variant and going to the trouble to scan and add them, the covers themselves disappear from the list of issues (and yes, the ones that I add, for example '1/W' are still there). Is there a way to prevent these from being removed during the updates?  Help!

  16. Hello. I just downloaded the latest version yesterday afternoon. However, I noticed that the little icon for Sidekick no longer appears where I had him set up in my bottom toolbar. Is he hidden somewhere?  Or do I need to add him back in some manner?

  17. As an avid collector of the variant covers for the current Vampirella and Vengeance of Vampirella series, I wanted to share something that has me a bit confused. While CB lists the current Vampirella series as the 7th, the indicia (inside cover) of each issues lists the series as Volume 5.  Not sure what this is about, but maybe it is due to the difference in publisher between Harris Comics and Dynamite Entertainment?  Let me know if you are able to shed some light on this for me. Thanks!

  18. Thank you. Btw, and if CB is listening, this GN is listed at $13.00 in NM condition. Two of the 3 that I bought are in that grade and when I checked eBay sales earlier today, NM copies had sold for as much as $60+. In summary, my question is how does the CB engine recognize the current prices that copies might actually be selling for? Just curious...

  19. A couple of months ago I was fortunate enough to but 3 copies of the original graphic novel by Claremont & Anderson. Unfortunately, I am unable to find the related listing as the only ones that appear are the 1994 reprint and the 2020 extended cut. Does anyone know if this is in the CB database?  Let me know. Thanks!
