  1. Haven't found one (well three) yet... Also, haven't submitted any yet... I think another week before I'm happy with my current efforts. Whatever we wish to call them, discovering and separately labeling them from the ptychs that they aren't is a useful task. Can always do a search for 'twin cover' and resubmit with a different wording.
  2. House of X #1/Q now deleted. So, is there a diptych cover to match with Powers of X #1/Q?
  3. Updated scans for Magic: Master of Metal issues. Thank you. However, by revealing 1/C is a virgin variant of 1/A, this now begs the question on the covers of the other 4 issues of the 5-ptych that brought this to my attention in the first place, Miguel Mercado covers of issues 1-4 of Magic: The Hidden Planeswalker.
  4. Well.... On the plus side, "House of Secrets (2nd Series)" has capitalized Series on the Title title now. Thanks. On the minus side, I searched for INSTR(I.Title, ' series') > 0 and found 1,761 rows (issues, not titles) where you had found 1,572, so it went up... On the, minus side?, several of those I found were "House of Secrets (2nd series)", showing that the search was for the more hidden duplicated issue-by-issue title field and not the primary one-per-title Title field. Searched for INSTR(ComicTitles.Title, ' series') > 0 and found 480 returns.

  5. Had resubmitted, looks like there have been changes... Out of my 50 or so, I guess these didn't meet standards for being reversed Anna Malle's Dirty Deeds Bobby Benson's B-Bar-B Riders Bobby Benson's B-Bar-B Riders (Magazine Enterprises) 3 assorted that start with Bru-Hed's 3 publisher's forms of Captain Billy's Whiz Bang Frank Miller's Sin City: The Making of the Movie James Lloyd's Other Stuff Paul Terry's Comics Many "Walt Disney's" titles (as opposed to "Disney's") Will Eisner's Quarterly Woron's Worlds
  6. In rearranging the order of the possessive in this title, Ronald has changed to Ronalda...
  7. In rearranging the order of the possessive in the Comicbook entry, it now appears this is dual listed in both Comics and Magazines.
  8. In rearranging the possessive on this title, Mr. Grimly lost an 'r' from his name...
  9. Poking this thread to remind me to look through these issues for 'twin covers'.
  10. I guess the distinction is that the Magazine, Youth, was not wholly Schulz's, yes?
  11. Because I like the thought of having things built-in to the program as opposed to having to work around the outside of the system. Because if it did get implemented, it would be simpler to submit on the trusted user end, and I presume simpler to process on ComicBase's end, and would have less room for errors. I have no idea how many e-mails they receive with outside-the-flow submissions, and if they come mainly form the same people or not. It might be that there is utility to adding the feature in a way that it doesn't cause problems with the general user, and that this form of implementation hadn't been considered. It's a suggestion. I make lots of them. They're not all winners. Yes, it would take some work. A lot, I don't know. The submission code is already there, with a check on image size; I don't know that it would take all that much to add a popup for override gated by a programable setting.
  12. If the problem is that the general public would misuse the feature, then make it a feature that's not available to all users.
  13. I'm confused with what you are describing as the problem, and what you are suggesting as the solution. 3 different shippers? As in, your order is for multiple items, being broken across multiple sellers, and thus being shipped in multiple shipments with multiple shipping charges? As for your proposed solution, if I understand the proposal, how often would your seller(s) be local/co-local such that they could hand-deliver to a drop-off or shipping consolidation location?
  14. I don't begrudge the overlooked cases, and sorry if it sounds like I'm beating a horse that you think is already dead. To be clear, it is acceptable for landscape-oriented covers to have landscape-oriented cover scans, regardless of the orientation of the internal printed material, yes?
  15. The database has lots of missing and incomplete notes, as the vast majority of them should carry across all printings and variations but aren't. Best method for consistency, and for database size, would be to add a table separating Type/Number from Printing/Variation, having a single common Notes field per Type/Number, and a finely differentiated Notes field for every separate Printing/Variation.
  16. There are, I think, two 4-ptychs (not triptychs) across variants of Rising Stars #1, one having a "Monster Edition" stamp on the covers. 1) #1/E & 1/H both show the unstamped third part. I think 1/E should be the stamped part (see question 3) 2) #1/F shows the stamped fourth part, there appears to be no entry for the unstamped fourth part. 3) The unstamped variants appear to have Notes indicating "Forward by Neil Gaiman", while the stamped versions do not. Is this a correct difference between the two variations?
  17. Item Description reads "Wraparound triptych cover". unless there are 2 missing issues, I think this is a wraparound gatefold cover. Am I right?
  18. 6 Titles, three "DCeased", three "Dceased"
