  1. Sorcerers ken Kesey is an collection of fantasy art and should therefore be in the books section
  2. Was watching a youtube on comic restoration and he was restoring this comic. Checked e-bay and it sells for £500-£1500, but I can't find it in Comicbase. It was given away with a computer game and a lot of gamers binned it , hence it is rare.
  3. Came across a box of these in my attic and decided to sell them. Thought they were worth small change till I looked on e-bay. The prices on e-bay for certain issues is astonishing i.e. issue 61 - between £70 and £600, many others have this range. Apparently 1st appearance and 1st small excerpts of the actual comics are the reason. Issue 54 (1st secret invasion), also issue 62, also issue 61 (1st Red Hulk). The prices in Comicbase are much much lower. Could someone at Comicbase HQ do a price check on this series? I watched the last live stream on amazing prices for comics/bits of comics. Are things now so crazy that preview mags are now worth serious money?
  4. Thanks Gregory, This helps alot. I will submit title subscriptions to the forum from now on -but it is a long winded way to do it. Title descriptions I have already done on my own database -will these remain or will they be overwritten with the weekly updates?
  5. If I go to modify title and either correct the year, or the description, or the comments, or the tags, and then click submit new or corrected data, do these corrections hit Comicbase HQ? If not how do we submit title corrections? I come across title descriptions and would like to submit them wherever there isn't one already.
  6. I own a few of these. The number on the shrink wrap sticker is the issue number. The number on the spine of the book is the volume number. The indicia inside the book simply lists the comics that are being re-printed.
  7. I am wanting to sort this title out. At the moment a lot of them are missing, however before I start I would like some guidance on the numbering. The 1st issue released i.e. issue one was the Amazing Spider-Man Coming Home - however this is volume 21 (when you put them in volume order on the shelf the spines form a picture) The 2nd issue was the Uncanny X-Men, and this was volume 2. Issue 3 was Iron man Extremis, but this was volume 43. And so it continues. Do you want the numbering to be based on issue i.e. the order they were released or by volume i.e. the order they are put in on the bookshelf to form the spine picture?
  8. That worked , many thanks. I will now finish correcting the covers.
  9. Got to this title which was a much loved British comic that I used to read. A lot of the covers are duplicates, or attached to the wrong issue number or date. I have tidied up issues 1-175 but some of the correct covers won't upload because they are smaller, thus leaving some incorrect covers. If the covers of these issues could be deleted in the next update -I could then submit all the correct covers. My main issue is that having got to issue 176, the date of this issue should be 23/2/1980 not 29/2/1980. Issue 177 should be 29/2/1980, 178 should be 1/3/1980 etc etc, Is there a fast way of correcting the dates of issues 176-860, or is the only way the laborious one at a time? I will pause indexing/correcting this title for now. Until I hear from you. There is however a lot of correcting still to be done.
  10. "Rose & Gunn" and "Rose N Gunn" are the same title Rose N Gunn needs deleting.
  11. I would like the facility so that as with submitting a correction I could submit a comment about an issue. The editors could then look at the comment and act or not as the case may be. For example when a comic issue has a "my comics store" watermark. Or where I have a none water marked cover that is smaller than the water marked cover (prelimary/my comic shop etc), the watermarked cover needs removing. The idea being that these covers can be removed in the next update, so the better cover can be submited. Also I come across issues which either don't exist or where never published - I would comment on these issues such that the editors could remove them. Comments on the value of issues could also be done this way Also other comments could be made i.e. poor quality cover -which then could be flagged/highlighted (may be by highlighing the issue in a different colour) in updates for users so if they come across a better cover they can submit it. Doing these corrections via the forum takes too long.
  12. Should this be Poison Elves: Petunia (Drew Hayes’…)?
  13. Hi just an update from my current experience - I downloaded the latest update. I do get downloads of covers I don't have. However watermarked covers are still not replaced with none watermarked versions. A workaround that works for me is when I find a title with watermarked covers, I open the picture folder delete all the covers, then go to the previous title, then forwards to the title such that they are no picture icons showing, then download covers, and hey presto I have none watermarked covers. A bit of a pain though.
  14. Can I request that these are displayed on the titles screen please.
  15. Yes I get the no larger covers message. But I didn't before the latest version. I just used to get the watermarked covers replaced in nearly all cases. Now I rarely get anything but the message. It's all very odd. Happy to try your solutions and thanks for your help but something has definately changed.
  16. Start with Nancy Drew and do the next 30 titles. Not a single none watermarked cover replaces a watermarked cover for me.
  17. Is it possible to request a new feature such that they can be viewed on the title screen?
  18. Before I upgraded, when I downloaded covers from Comicbase HQ I got covers without watermarks. (replacing the old watermarked covers) After upgrading to the 4K I now rarely get any new covers - which means I keep the old watermarked covers, obviously I would prefer none watermarked covers. Something seems to have changed at your end? Is the folder we download from different? Since January last year have been going through Comicbase from A-Z one by one getting better covers , and uploading hundreds of better covers when I find them, I made it to "N" in the alphabet but now it seems not worthwhile continuing because there are very little none watermarked covers coming my way. I try and do a A-Z pass of Comicbase each year, but got slowed up this year because I found lots of new titles to submit. And yes I am obsessive - lol! All the best for the holidays folks.
  19. When I use issue custom fields I can see them. I can choose to view them in the columns. However when I use title custom fields, custom checks, I can't see them on the title screen - is this a technical issue or am I doing something wrong?
  20. When I use find to search for titles I would like the option to instead of a list of titles being given to have all the issues of those titles. So for example if I search for all titles with for example Magik in the title I don't get the list of titles, instead I get all the issues of those titles listed. Hope this is clear. There may already be a way of doing this that I don't know -apologies if this is so.
