  1. True. That issue definitely isn't an "error misprint" as claimed in the Notes field. IIRC the Special Edition was how Marvel published the issue for the newsstands (Quasar was direct-sale only at that time).
  2. Hi folks -- A reminder that Pete is away this week, so there is no Livestream happening this week. Instead, feel free to join us in his backyard for BBQ and beer. (Please be sure to not leave any empty cans or bottles on his property so that he doesn't figure out that we were there!)
  3. Assuming that he is the same person as cyberspace comics, it looks like @Cyberspace Steve has a copy posted for sale on AA. He should be able to confirm.
  4. Have you taken a look at Bags Unlimited? I have had good luck with them.
  5. Just curious: does the Pullbox feature only include comics distributed by Diamond?
  6. Space: 34-24-34 is listed in the database as having been published by Topps Comics in 1996. The entry for issue #1 says it was published in May 1976. Was this really published by Topps? I am doubtful since the cover says it was published by MN Design Productions. Mycomicshop lists it as published in 1989 as does the GCD, which is obviously neither 1996 nor 1976.
  7. I don't think that Kickstarter products get entered into the database unless one of the following two things happens: (1) a ComicBase user receives the comic and submits the info for it from their database [I did this recently for Heavy Rotation, for example]; or (2) the comic gets solicited by Diamond. And, in the case of pathway #2, if there is a different version or variant that corresponds to what Kickstarter backers received, that version won't be in the database unless or until a user submits it. I don't think that anybody from HC trolls through all of the Kickstarter campa
  8. I think that is usually the result of a server issue at HC's end of things.
  9. Can we get a definitive ruling on whether IDW's Artist Editions, Artist's Editions, Artisan Editions, and Artifact Editions (and similar books from other publishers) should be catalogued in the Book or Comics category? I *thought* that Pete indicated in one of the Livestreams that they should be considered Books (but I might be totally misremembering that). The database currently has some of these listed as Comics and some of them listed as Books.
  10. A reminder that this item is still hanging around.
  11. Wallace Wood Presents: Shattuck is listed in the database as a Book. This item should be moved to the Comics category.
  12. Brother Billy, The Pain From Plains is listed in the database as a comic. It contains illustrations and a lot of text jokes, and isn't really a comic. IMO this should be moved to the Magazine category.
  13. Some retailers (e.g. mycomicshop) don't downgrade a comic if the digital code has been redeeemed. But I agree with Steven that some really picky collectors may feel differently. EDITED TO ADD: I don't know what the policy on this is for professional grading services (such as CGC) but I would assume that they would downgrade if the digital code sticker was not in "unaltered, like new" condition, i.e., the peel-away portion still attached. When I post comics for sale on Atomic Avenue that have a digital comic sticker, I always indicate whether or not the code was redeemed and the
  14. I am assuming that these comics from the 1980's or so. At that time, Marvel comics were distributed to the newsstands on a returnable basis and to comic shops on a non-returnable basis (aka "direct sale"). Newsstands could get credit for copies that weren't sold, but to prove that the comics weren't sold they had to send back the covers (in earlier times, they had to send back the entire comic, but sending back just the covers made that less expensive). Direct sales had a bigger discount, but if the retailer didn't sell all of their copies, they couldn't return them. To prevent
  15. Ah, so not a genuine Mac keyboard. It's probably a thing where Parallels is expecting a regular Mac keyboard.
  16. What Mac are you using? On my Macbook Pro that isn't quite a year old I have individual Fn, Control, Option, and Command keys on the left, but only Command and Option on the right (plus the four arrow keys on the right).
  17. A custom title field might be very useful. I could see myself using it to list other titles or issues where a particular character or series shows up. For instance, the Strangehaven series turns up in some comics other than its own self-titled series, and it would be nice to be able to put that info into ComicBase for my own use when re-reading the series.
  18. Listing it at a high value or actually completing a sale at high value?
  19. The database lists the cover price for Fallen Angel #1 (2nd printing) as $2.50. The cover price should actually be listed as $0.00 since (as stated on the cover) that issue was free.
  20. The AAFES books got scattered all around the database, it is kind of a mess. Personally, I would have handled it as all of the AAFES issues going under one title, but that is admittedly a "hindsight is 20-20" kind of thing. What are your settings for content updates? Do you have the program delete obsolete titles and issues for which your quantity is zero? If not, that might explain why the old listings are available in your database.
  21. Under what category should comic convention programs (Comicfest, for example) be listed? The contents aren't comics, obviously. Should they go under magazines?
  22. Generally speaking, the primary determinant as to whether an item goes into Books or Comics is the content, not the construction. Somewhere along the line, a lot of titles got moved from Comics to Books, presumably either by an over-eager intern or an over-eager algorithm. Many of the items were moved appropriately, but many others were moved inappropriately. Great Comic Book Heroes may have been one of those items that was moved that should not have been.
  23. Would you be able to use the custom fields for this? (I am assuming that you have the Professional version of CB or higher) You can enter the name of the person to whom you lent the book in the field.
  24. The items listed under The Invincible Gene Colan are listed as TPB and TPB/LE. This item is a hardcover, so the entries should be changed to HC and HC/LE.
