  1. Here are the UPC numbers for two of the ones you listed.

    75960620200301422   Kyle Hotz                 (Red-head female behind dark web spider-man(?))?

    75960620200301423   Ed McGuinness       Hallows's Even Design Cover

    If the standard UPC format is observed, they would be 2nd and 3rd printing of the 2nd variation.

  2. I believe the major difference is Covers.

    Archive Edition:

    Includes a year of free, weekly updates to keep you current with new titles and issues, pricing, and new cover images

    Pro Edition:

    Includes a year of free, weekly updates to keep you current with new titles and issues and pricing.

  3. The way it works,is:

    If you renew your current Edition, then, Yes, the year a tacked on to the end of your current expiration date. (i.e. Archive to Archive).

    However, if you upgrade (or down-grade) to a different Edition, then , No, the year starts from your purchase date. (i.e. Pro too Archive).

  5. Brad, if you move you database file to a folder that OneDrive (or any other sync to cloud software) does not monitor, you should not have a problem.

    This is not a ComicBase problem but deals with any database program.

    Databases are a terrible process to have some other process mess with it as they are dealing with units of work and commit points. The Cloud sync programs don't care about this and can grab a copy in the middle of database processes getting them out of sync (which defeats the point of syncing).

  6. Try going to the CB website and under My Account->Registrations, clicking on the green arrow next to you product and download the update manually.

    The run that update.

    Alternately, uninstall ComicBase (and probably ComicBase Resources) before running the Update.

    PS I installed the CB Archive update last night with no problem.

  7. Unfortunately, the HC in Dlx 1/HC is the Variation. So, the additional Variation of A  or B can't be used with HC.

    There are 4 parts of the Item #. Type (Dlx),  Number (1), Variation (HC), and Printing (not used for this example).

    If Dlx 1/HC and Dlx 1/A are both Absolute Editions, they could be split out to their own title (Although there is already a 'Absolute Crisis on Infinite Earths' with a 2011 date in CB).

     

     

  8. Michael Wagner: I am not sure I followed all of what you are saying. I think you are saying there are a few issues in 'The Death of Superman' that shouldn't be there but in a different (new) title called 'The Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special'.

    There is already a title called 'The Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special' in CB. In this title there are issues that are a gate-fold cover (#1) and a poly-bag issue (#1/A)

  10. This is beyond my knowledge of how to fix. But I am guessing there is some mis-match between your database and your account.
    Here are some things you can check.
    In CB use File->Collection Statistics... (or F12).
    see attachment
    Click on the icon near the top right corner (circled in red)
    This will display your database ID (circled in blue)

    Next go the the ComicBase website.
    In the top left corner, click on My Account->Profile.
    Scroll down to Known Databases.

    Check the Database Id from CB against what is shown here.
    You may need to use the Database drop-down box to select different databases.
    I would remove any/all databases that don't match the Database Id in CB.
    NOTE: I you do delete all of them, you can get yours back by using Collection Statistics (I think). If not, I think saving your database to the cloud will do it.

    Next go to My Account->My Comics. This is where your Mobile Reports are listed.
    Check the Database Drop-down box to see if any old databases are listed.
    If you have any reports for these old database, you could Remove the Report.
    (Not sure is the reports are used with the Wanted lists so this may not be needed).

    Once you have only a Database listed that matches your database, this should (I would think) allow CB and aA to sync correctly.
    But this is pretty much some guess work on my part.

  11. The problem is if you are going by 'comic book size means comics' just about every book (Absolute, Omnibus, just to mention a few) would be in Books since they are not comic-size. And items like Savage Sword of Conan (the b&w version) would need to be in Magazines since it is magazine size.

    Going on size just wouldn't work very well. Which leaves content.

  13. If it helps this gemstone publishing site seems to list most (if not all) of the different versions:

    https://gemstonepub.com/price-guides/comic-book-price-guides/?sort=newest&limit=100&mode=1&page=1

    Specifically, for #39, there appears to be:

    CB Item #    Site description
    ----------    -----------------
    HC 39/A       HC Avengers 7.0 x 9.25 $35.00

    TPB 39/A     SC Avengers6.5 x 9.25 $30.00

                         (no cover, assuming you want both Avengers cover to be the same variation of A)

    HC 39/B       HC Invaders  7.0 x 9.25 $35.00 (Captain America, Human Torch, Sub-Mariner)

                         SC Invaders 6.5 x 9.25 $30.00 (Captain America, Human Torch, Sub-Mariner)
                         Not in CB. Probably TPB 39/B
        
                         SC Mass Market edition  6.5 x 9.25 $30.00 (the JSA with the yellow background)
                         Not in CB. Same size as other SC, so probably TPB 39/C
