  1. I have a #-2 (Minus Two) and the indicia indicates that it is a first printing, but the cover is black with slightly lighter black lettering instead of the red that the official cover scan shows. Any thoughts?
  2. This flipbook scan is composited wrong. Both images are on the correct sides (brown on left, blue with UPC on right), but both are upside-down. This is not correctable by simply rotating the whole scan 180 degrees or mirror flipping the whole scan top-to-bottom; each side image needs to be rotated 180 degrees separately, so the current outer edges would then join in the center.
  3. TL;DR - Confusion can be avoided by adding indication of Category assignment on information listing. Had a little difficulty finding an issue I was adding to my collection. I had several, owned or wanted, but this one in my hand wasn't in the ComicBase list. I go to AtomicAvenue, pull up the title, and find the issue in my hand in the list with the other issues I have in ComicBase. I enter the UPC, and find the issue exists in ComicBase. Turns out, the title has been changed with the 2020 update from Comicbooks to Magazines. This period of confusion could be shortened if the category were displayed in AtomicAvenue.
  4. Is there a way to see extended information on AtomicAvenue to verify odd information, including UPC? I have noticed that I had an entry for The Ninjettes #2, an issue that appears to not exist compared with #2/A and #2/B. Fine. But, as I go to switch my inventory tick to a proper issue, I notice that my database has consecutive UPCs for #2, 2/A and 2/B, ending -211, -221 and -231. My issue has the cover that matches #2/A, which includes the issue UPC, ending in -211, not what is in ComicBase as -221.
  5. Did an update with Sidekick with the "Lock Notes (Don't Allow the update to add new info)" checkbox unchecked, which i assume means notes are unlocked and should update (which is mildly confusing, since the other two checks in this section are "Remove obsolete titles" and "Remove obsolete issues", two boxes you check to allow a change, while this is a box you check to prevent a change). Issue #1 for me still has the notes "Pink Skies; The Joes; Blue Sky Background".
  6. Just installed and I know see an unchecked checkbox in the Sidekick settings. Trying an update now...
  7. "Dr." alphabetizes as "Doctor" "Sgt." alphabetizes as "Sergeant" "Mr." alphabetizes as "Mister" "Mrs." alphabetizes as "Mistress" But.... "Ms." does not alphabetize as "Miss"?
  8. I brought this up on the old forums several months ago, but it appears to still be double listed. Cover reads "DC Entertainment Essential Graphic Novels and Chronolgy 2013", with a #1 and a "Free". Indicia on page 2 gives the same name. On the back we have the following: ISBN 978-1-4012-4559-7 UPC 9 781401 245597 50000 Diamond Code FEB138581 It, and several others, are still double listed under "DC Entertainment Essential Graphic Novels and Chronology" in Books as issue #TPB 2013 and "DC Essential Graphic Novels" in Comic Books as issue #2013, both in Comicbase and AtomicAvenue (Incidentally, in AtomicAvenue, while the dropdown lists the issues as "TPB xxxx", each individual entry only shows the issues as #xxxx.)
  9. Query - The option is missing from what, or, how do you have the option in your screen capture and I don't? Was yours from Comicbase, if it was going to do the update, while mine was from Sidekick? Are you running a different version/build than I am? Is it Archive vs. Professional? Is it PC vs. Mac?
  10. That is the only option I don't have in my Comicbase Sidekick Settings | Content Updates tab. I am running Archive Edition on Windows 10.
