  1. Men of Tomorrow by Gerard Jones is a fully prose account of the early days of comic books. It should be listed as a book instead of a comic.
  2. Is there a style guide for assigning comic Type and Variation? And a glossary of terms? Example - Should a hardcover graphic novel be listed as... 1. Type: Regular Issue and Variation: Hardcover? 2. Type: Book and Variation: Hardcover? 3. Type: Graphic Novel and Variation: Hardcover? Example - How should a 3-volume hardcover boxed set be listed? 1. Type: Collector's Set and Variation: Hardcover 2. Type: Book and Variation: Collector's Set 3. Type: Deluxe Set and Variation: Hardcover 4. Other? Is there a glossary of Type terms? For example, what's the difference between a Collector's Set and a Deluxe Set? Is it a case of how the publisher defined it?
  3. If you highlight the line the issue is on, and then right-click, you are offered a menu option to Request Price Check. Also, to add the cover date, type it into the field, highlight the line for that issue, then right-click and click on Submit New or Corrected Data.
  4. I moved the logo files to a different drive. How do I get the program to look to that new drive for the logo files?
  5. The indicia for Chain Letter reads Pop Gun War Volume 2: Chain Letter
  6. I believe the entry for Pop Gun War: Gift is mis-titled, as the listing is for two books - only one of which is Gift. The other is Chain Letter. Perhaps it should be Pop Gun War (2nd series)? Or should both book be listed under the main Pop Gun War listing, though different publisher?
  7. Yep, that's where I was attempting to drag it to. I haven't had the problem recur with other titles, so perhaps it was a system burp.
  8. I wasn't very clear about what I meant. I attempted to drag and drop the image file, and it would not drop. When I right-clicked to 'Show Picture File' there was not a folder specific to the title. It showed me the various A-Z folders. I was under the (possibly mistaken) impression that when I drag and dropped and image, the software would create the associated picture file folder.
  9. I tried to load this pic to The Golden Age of Comic Books: 1937-1945, but the software did not create the picture file. Is that because it's a book, instead of a comic book? Anyway, here it is for your use.
  10. This oversize hardcover would more appropriately be filed under Books. The book is fully of essays and cover reproductions, but not actual comics per se.
  11. This collection of FF #347-349 is listed both as Fantastic Four: Monsters Unleashed and New Fantastic Four: Monsters Unleashed. According to the indicia, it should be the version without 'New' in the title. The duplicate entry should be deleted.
  12. The two entries for Delirium's Party: A Little Endless Storybook are the same item and should be combined as one. It is listed as 1/HC, as well as Bk1. I believe it would be correct to list it as 1/HC.
  13. I've had this issue as well, taking in excess of 5 minutes for the "updating totals" window to go away. I have an SSD. This began after upgrading to the most recent version. Prior to that it would close out in seconds. It does this even if I have made no changes to inventory, only a search and then exit.
  14. The Price by Jim Starlin (no cover photo) appears to be a redundant duplicate of The Price (includes cover photo.)
  15. ComicsLit is currently in the Magazine section but consists entirely of comics. It billed itself as having the 'top illustrated fiction from around the world.' I propose it should actually be listed as a comic, as it contains 99.5% comics and little other editorial content. (Just as titles such as Frank Frazetta Fantasy Illustrated, Omni Comix, Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction, etc., are included in the comics section.)
  16. The description for The Carl Barks Library more appropriately should be attached to (The Carl Barks Library of) Walt Disney's Comics and Stories in Color. Even perhaps to (The Carl Barks Library of Walt Disney's) Donald Duck Adventures in Color. The aforementioned listing for The Carl Barks Library actually IS the 'pristine hardback book collections in black and white' referenced in the description (copied below.) Description: A chronological, and more importantly, affordable reprinting of all of Carl Barks material from the long-running Walt Disney Comics and Stories: this time in full color! Previous reprintings were issued in cheap comic book editions or in pristine hardback book collections in black and white. For those who want to secure a complete set of the “good duck artist” in his prime, you cannot go wrong with any or all of these volumes. Original, sealed copies also contained a trading card featuring biographical information about various Barks characters. — Mark Arnold
  17. If you mean, listed as Bk 1, Bk 2, etc., I think that would make sense.
  18. There are two listings for The Cavalcade of Boys, one with Ten Minute Cartoons parenthetically added to the title. The two entries should be merged.
