  1. The database includes the titles Escape from Alcatraz and Escape from Alcatraz Comic Series. These series are duplicates of each other. Based on the indicia, the correct title is Escape from Alcatraz Comic Series. In the database, EfACS contains only issue #2, but EfA contains issues #1 through 9. Issues #1 and #3-#9 of EfA should be transferred to EfACS and then the EfA title should be deleted. BTW there is an issue #10 of EfACS that isn't in the database, at some point I will get that submitted (won't be for a while, I'm backlogged with more urgent tasks for the next couple of weeks).
  2. This week's update added a new magazine title Best of the Mighty Marvel Backlist. There is a comic book title with that same name (slightly different capitalization), and I suspect the comic title should be deleted as it is almost certainly duplicative. Also, under the list of New Magazines that were added, an item called best of the mighty marvel backlist #1 was added. Note the complete lack of capital letters. I'm not sure what is going on under the hood there, but thought I would point it out.
  3. This week's update added the Comic title Jacin andthe Olympians. There should be a space between and and the, yes? Also added was the new Comic title The Making of Assassin’s Creed: 15th Anniversary Edition. Based on the title description, this sounds like it really belongs in the Book category. The database now includes the following three Comic titles: • Spider-Man 2 (Custom Sony Interactive Entertainment 2023) • Custom Sony Interactive Entertainment 2023 English Print Comic (Marvel) • Custom Sony Interactive Entertainment 2023 English Print Comic At least two of these look like they are the same thing, I am suspicious that all three of them are the same thing.
  4. For the comic title The Lonely War of Willy Schultz, the currency listed in the database is CAD. Ordinarily, that would make sense since the publisher Avalon was based in Canada. However, the cover price for each of the issues explicitly states "$2.95 US" so the currency should be changed from CAD to USD. I haven't checked whether this is also true for other Avalon issues, but it wouldn't surprise me if it were true for at least some of them.
  5. I recommend contacting CB support via email for telephone. They are probably in the best position to take a look at your account and help you out.
  6. Lack of a UPC isn't necessarily an indicator that the newsstand and direct versions should be listed has separate variants. (Some direct sales issues of Kitty Pryde & Wolverine don't have a UPC, for instance.) However, if there is a difference in the printed cover prices, then there should definitely be separate entries for those issues.
  7. This week's update added the Comic Book title Fantomesuqe. Should that actually be listed as Fantomesque ? Also added was Incredible Hulk By Byrne and Casey Omnibus. Should that actually be listed as Incredible Hulk by Byrne and Casey Omnibus ?
  8. You mean "Silent Tales" right? (But yes, it looks like "DC Speechless" should be deleted)
  9. I think that the answer is generally not. They do pull from Heritage Auctions and from Atomic Avenue. However, if you see an item that is not priced accurately in the database, you can use the "check price" function in the database and point to sold eBay items as evidence that an adjustment is needed.
  10. This week's content update added the comic book title Mark Schultz: Carbon. This is a duplication of the book title of the same name. The #5 HC item under the book title should be moved to the comic book title and then the new comic book title should be deleted. Also added was the magazine title After Hours (Fantaco). The issue published under this title is actually a facsimile edition of the first issue of the After Hours magazine published by Warren (although the indicia states Jay Publications... I'm guessing that was a precursor or subsidiary of what would become Warren Publishing). I don't think it makes sense for facsimile editions to get their own title. I suggest the following: • Creation of the title After Hours (Jay) or After Hours (Warren) in the magazine category [If I had to pick, I would suggest the former over the latter] • Move the existing issue of After Hours (Fantaco) to the new After Hours title as issue #1 (2nd print) [and include a note that the issue was published by Fantaco] • Delete the After Hours (Fantaco) title
  11. To add a new item, create the issue in your database. If you have a scan of the item, add that to the appropriate image folder. Then proceed with the instructions at the link in your post. The mobile app isn't set up for submitting corrections or additions to Human Computing. It's really only intended to allow users to see what issues are included in the master database and to see which of those items are in stock in your database(s).
  12. Orders for the Time^2 Omnibus have been cancelled by the publisher, so this title should be removed from the database. (I'm hoping that this gets resolicited, but I don't know one way or the other if that is the plan.)
  13. That's a good point... it could prevent future submissions undoing this correction and save the editorial team some trouble.
  14. Note that although Bill Mantlo is credited in Strange Tales (2nd series) #7 as the writer of the Cloak & Dagger story, it turns out that Peter Gillis wrote both stories in that issue ("Writer credit corrected in the letters page of issue #10.") Bill Mantlo's name should be removed from the writer credits of that issue.
  15. I think that the current editorial policy in general is to use A/B etc for variants now as much as possible for new publications, and to avoid the more specialized designations like DM that were created at a time when variants were much less common.
