  1. In addition to the items discussed in this thread (a big thank you to @Randall J. Paske 🙂 ), this week's updated added the book title Strangers in Paradise. There is already a comic title Strangers in Paradise, so the new title (the book title) should probably be re-named to something like Strangers in Paradise (Graphitti). Note also that somewhere along the line the scan for Strangers in Paradise (the comic book title) #1 got replaced with the solicitation image of the Graphitti book. That should get fixed, too. Also added to the database is the new comic title Walt Disney’s Silly Symphonies 1932-1935: Starring Bucky Bug and Donald Duck from IDW last year. Back in 2016 IDW released a book that appears to have had similar contents at the very least. Can anybody verify whether the 2023 release is a new printing of the 2016 book with a new cover, or are the contents different enough that this warrants a new title in the database?
  2. Back in my college days, I navigated the original Can of Worms configuration quite a few times, so I have little fear on that front! 😂 (Mark and CB editorial, on the other hand, may be a tad more conservative! 😉 )
  3. The database includes the following comic book titles: Threshold (1st series), Threshold (2nd series), and Threshold (3rd series). The first and second series are related to each other, so their titles in the database make complete sense. Threshold (3rd series) has nothing at all to do with the first two series by that name, its a completely different thing by different creators and coming out from a different publisher. I recognize that Threshold (3rd series) has been in the database for a very long time, but I thought I would float up a trial balloon anyway to see if there was interest in re-naming Threshold (3rd series) to Threshold (Avatar).
  4. Depending on what type of ComicBase you have, you can use the Custom Fields for that. Check the CB product description page to see which editions of the program have the number of custom fields that you need.
  5. The database lists second printings of issues #6 and #7 for Moon Girl. I don't believe that these ever came out... can anybody verify that they exist? (I can verify that second printings for issues #1 through #5 do exist as I have them in my collection.)
  6. I was watching on Chrome, and I don't think that I have any ad-blockers on that browser. I didn't have any trouble. I was logged in to my Google account, don't know if that has any importance.
  7. I see that the database includes one of the recent re-issues of Marvel Masterworks: The Amazing Spider-Man #2, but it is listed as #2/A (2nd print). That issue should be deleted. In keeping with our discussion above, the silver & black re-issue of that book should be MM:TAS-M #2/D and the marble variant re-issue of that book should be MM:TAS-M #2/E. I will try to get those submitted in the next couple of days.
  8. The database lists Book #1 as the sole issue for The Super Hero's Journey. The book is a hardcover, so I am wondering if this should really be listed as #1/HC. My reasoning is that if a paperback edition is ever published that might be a better candidate for the Book #1 designation.
  9. Those titles have been moved to the Magazines category. Multiple ways to fix this, either of the below should work for you. Whichever on you choose, it should obviously be done in the database you are using to upload inventory to AA. My instructions here are for the CBLDF Defender title, you will need to repeat these same instructions for the CBLDF Defender (Vol. 2) title. STRATEGY 1: 1. Do a search for CBLDF Defender. 2. You should see multiple "hits", one of which is CBLDF Defender in the Magazine category. Go to the Magazine version of the title. Delete the title. 3. Go the to the Comic Book version of the CBLDF Defender title. Change the media type to Magazine. 4. Upload your inventory to AA. STRATEGY 2: 1. Do a search for CBLDF Defender. 2. You should see multiple "hits", one of which is CBLDF Defender in the Magazine category. Go to the Magazine version of the title. Enter all of your CBLDF Defender inventory information on that title (don't forget to check the "For Sale" box where appropriate). 3. Go the to the Comic Book version of the CBLDF Defender title. Change all inventory under that title to Quantity In Stock = 0. 4. Upload your inventory to AA. (The next time you do a content update on that database, the old Comic Book version of the title should be deleted if you have the proper settings checked off *AND* it contains no issues in stock.)
  10. In the database that you are using to upload your inventory to AA, are the CBLDF Defender titles in the Comic Book media category or in the Magazine media category?
  11. That's a good catch, I didn't realize that the *entire* Reckless title got removed. As you say, the Reckless title should exist but only have issue #1-HC under it for exactly the rationale you give. All of the subsequent issues that used to be listed there should be under their own titles which is the case now for the second, third, and fifth books. The fourth book (The Ghost in You: A Reckless Book) is still missing. I have resubmitted Reckless (i.e., the first book) and TGiY:ARB. Hopefully Mark can get the clean-up sorted out for next week's content update.
  12. The database contains the comic title Adventures into Terror (Fantagraphics). The book's cover, spine, and title page all state Atlas Comics Library No. 1 Adventures Into Terror Vol. 1. (The title of the book is not listed on the indicia page.) Upcoming books from Fantagraphics include the following titles: • Atlas Comics Library No. 2: Venus Vol. 2 • Atlas Comics Library No. 3: In the Days of the Rockets! • Atlas Comics Library No. 4: War Comics Vol. 1 Based on the above, I suggest that the Adventures into Terror (Fantagraphics) title be renamed Atlas Comics Library and that the existing Adventures into Terror book be listed as #1-HC under the new ACL title. Future releases should be listed under ACL using the sequential numbering to which Fantagraphics appears to have committed.
  13. This week's update added the comic title Lego Star Wars: Strong WIth the Force. That should be updated to either Lego Star Wars: Strong With the Force or (if I correctly understand CB's current conventions) Lego Star Wars: Strong with the Force.
  14. Also, in looking at the existing listings for the current Batman: Gotham by Gaslight title in the database, I see that issues #1-2, #1-3, and #1-7 all state that they reprint the original Batman: Gotham by Gaslight and also Batman: Master of the Future, but none of the other issues that are in the so-called deluxe edition. So those items would need to go into their own title as well. I don't own any of them, so I don't know how the indicia reads. But I suspect that when we are all done there will be something along lines of the following in the databse: • Batman: Gotham by Gaslight [the original 1989 one-shot] • Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (2nd series) [would cover the editions from 2006 through ???? that reprint B:GbG and B:MotF; currently listed as #1-2, #1-3, and #1-7 in the database] • Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (3rd series) [would cover the so-called deluxe hardcover and new trade paperback that reprint B:GbG, B:MotF, Countdown Presents: The Search for Ray Palmer: Gotham by Gaslight #1, and Convergence: Shazam! #1 & #2. Also: it also looks like issue #1-8 in the database is the same thing as the brand new "deluxe" trade paperback. So that the info for that issue can be used to populate the info for Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (3rd series) #Bk 1.
  15. I don't have the hardcover, but the indicia for the trade paperback reads Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. The front cover and the spine read the same way as well.
  16. I submitted info for Friend of the Devil: A Reckless Book , Destroy All Monsters: A Reckless Book , and Ghost In You, The: A Reckless Book. I haven't had a chance to make scans. I'm not sure when I will be able to get to those, so if somebody else can get that done easily, they should do so. I thought that I have Follow Me Down: A Reckless Book, but apparently I don't. 😞 So somebody else will need to submit that item in its entirety.
  17. I think that the original titles are all still in my database from when I purchased these ogns as they were not all lumped under one title initially. So it should be easy for me to find these in my database and send them in.
  18. Yes, that would match up with my understanding of the current CB editorial approach and policy.
  19. The Gotham by Gaslight deluxe edition hardcover is listed in the database under the Gotham by Gaslight title. It should probably be moved under its own title because it collects not just Gotham by Gaslight but an additional four issues from three other titles. There is also a trade paperback version that just came out in recent weeks, and that should go under the same title as the deluxe hc.
  20. I noticed this evening that somewhere along the line the Reckless graphic novels by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips all got grouped under a single title. I can understand the rationale for this, but I wanted to point out that these books are not numbered in the indicia, on either the front or back covers, or on the spine. There isn't necessarily a big problem leaving them all under a single title, but I thought I would mention it in case it doesn't match up with the current ComicBase editorial policy.
  21. Livestream #149 occurred, but it had enough production errors that Pete decided to bin it rather than keep it up on YouTube.
  22. This week's update added the comic title See You in My 19Th Life. Should that actually be listed as See You in My 19th Life ?
  23. That title was deleted in this week's content update as it was replaced by the correctly punctuated Batman/Catwoman: The Gotham War: Scorched Earth.
  24. Also added was the comic title Marvel Beginnings: I Love You 3,000. This title, along with Marvel Beginnings: Spider-Man's Spooky Halloween, are board books. I am having difficulty in locating scans or pictures of the interior, but I am suspicious that neither of these Marvel Beginnings books are actually comics. Can anybody verify whether these belong in the Comics category or should be moved to the Books category?
  25. Those comics fall under the title Mutant Misadventures of Cloak & Dagger. The "Mutant Misadventures" part of the title quietly disappeared around issue 14 or so.
