  1. To be honest, it evokes a feeling not unlike opening the warehouse seen at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. And, for many of us, our collections are of similar magnitude! 😉 So count me among those that miss the musical drama of launching CB.
  2. The product page for Express explicitly lists a number of covers and the ability to add your own. The product page for the Free version doesn't include any mention of those items, so my guess would be that Express does not allow you to add additional covers and that it will only display the issue #1's as you describe.
  3. If you find titles that are listed under the wrong type of media -- and you're certain that the title doesn't already exist under the correct media type -- you might consider posting on the boards and/or sending an email to Human Computing so that they know to also make the change in the master database.
  4. Pete announced a sale today on the Livestream. So now is your chance until Sunday night 9/13!
  5. The Flesk site says $39.95. https://www.fleskpublications.com/books/the-art-of-frank-cho-paperback-edition
  6. The database includes the title Dr. Grordbort Presents: Victory. I don't believe that the colon should be included in the title. I am not seeing a colon on the front cover, on the title page or indicia page, or on the book spine.
  7. The title They Drew As They Pleased: The Hidden Art of Disney's Musical Years is listed in the database. It lists issues #1 HC and #4 HC. In my database, I am seeing the title under Comic Books. This title should be moved to Books as these are all art books with no comics content. Also, the "Hidden Art of Disney's Musical Years" is a subtitle for the first volume only; each of the six volumes has a different sub-title. Each volume is numbered on the spine. I suggest that this title should be shortened to They Drew As They Pleased and that each book be listed as HC 1 through 6. Today I made a submission for all six volumes under the proposed new title (sorry, only a scan for volume 6... I won't be able to get to scanning the five volumes for a while).
  8. The database recently added the title The Art of Frank Cho: A Twenty-Year Retrospective. The only issue that is listed in the database is HC. I would like to propose the following changes: 1. There is also a trade paperback version that should be added. Info for that is available at the Flesk website. 2. I would also like to propose that the current HC entry in the database be designated as DLX since it comes with a slipcase. If Flesk decides to publish a non-slipcased hardcover edition in the future, this proposed change would make it easier to catalog that issue.
  9. Hi Mark -- *Usually* you simply add the issue using the next variant letter in the alphabet. Sometimes, however, there are so many variants for a particular issue that ComicBase runs out of letters of the alphabet for the variants. (See the infamous "Crisis of Infinite Godzillas" thread over on the old message boards for more info on that.) For which specific comic book issue are you trying to add a variant? EDITED TO ADD: The mechanics of adding the issue and scan etc to your database are covered in ComicBase Livestream #14 starting at roughly the 30 minute mark.
  10. The most recent update added the following title as a comic book title: Fifty-Year Mission, The: The Complete, Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Star Trek Are you sure that is a comic book rather than a book?
  11. Hi folks! During today's Livestream, Pete suggested that we set up a dedicated thread here in the forum for people to post their syntax etc. for the Advanced Searches that they do. I set up the thread over in the "Tech Support" section of the boards and pinned it, so it should be easy to find. Or you can just click here and go straight to the thread!
  12. Hi folks! During today's Livestream, Pete suggested that we set up a dedicated thread here in the forum for people to post their syntax etc. for Advanced Searches that they do. I've pinned the thread so it should be easy to find. I confess, I have not done much with Advanced Search b/c I don't know the syntax. But if I knew the syntax, then I feel confident that I can readily do things with it. I would not be surprised if there are other CB users in the same or similar boat. Does anybody have a link to a simple, straightforward document listing out the basics for Advanced Search syntax etc?
  13. The following should have a category change: The All-Star Companion: move from comics to books I Have to Live with This Guy: move from comics to books The Batcave Companion: move from comics to books Comic Book Fever: A Celebration of Comics 1976-1986: move from comics to books Comics Gone Ape: The Missing Link to Primates in Comics: move from comics to books I would suggest checking all of the TwoMorrows titles to verify that they are all posted in the correct category. As a side note: when I go to the TwoMorrows search results on Atomic Avenue, not all TwoMorrows titles appear. It seems like only the titles currently categorized as comics show up there. This has the effect of hiding sellers' non-comics inventory from potential buyers, and that is obviously not helpful. I would recommend that the AA team prioritize getting a fix for that. Thanks!
  14. There is something like that at midtowncomics.com There is a pulldown item for weekly releases on their homepage. And *obviously* they will include DC's comics!
  15. Not sure. I do know for certain that Street Fighter #100 and Zoo Patrol Squad are already in the database as those arrived in stores before the Diamond shutdown and I had no trouble scanning them into my database at the time.
