  1. Turns out that there are at least three versions of this one. There may be more depending upon whether the "foil" versions are actually foil or just extremely glossy. The one with the oversized classic Detective Comics logo UPC 76194137788900131 The one with the more modern small logo in the upper left corner UPC 76194137788900141 And a third "virgin" cover UPC 76194137788900151
  2. This, and after the latest update, all my shortcut icons are images of blank white pages, none of the usual icons for CB or Sidekick, even after a couple of restarts now.
  3. Does anyone know where this one came from? I have searched for it pretty extensively but have come up empty handed. There is a mention of a variant of the first issue from 1940 without a period in the "No 1" on the top left of the cover but it's not a second print.
  4. Now, #4-A has the cover to Pandora #4 in its place. I tried to upload the correct pic but it didn't submit.
  5. On the original Batman title from 1940, does anyone know what #1-2 is? Based on the price for it, I would imagine that it is a modern reprint. I am guessing it was made as an entry for the facsimile edition but was abandoned?
  6. Frank Miller's Ronin Book II #3 & #4 have issues listed that I am unable to verify anywhere including FrankMillerPresents.com. #3 in CB indicates that there is a 1:25 retail incentive cover as well as a 1:50 signed retail incentive cover but I can't find evidence of these. #3 does have a Frank Miller cover and on the first two issues, his covers were retailer incentives but I'm guessing that the abysmal sales had them change the plan for the remaining books in the series. I suggest that #3-A be the Frank Miller cover with no incentive notation and the #3-B be removed. #4 is closer with the Miller cover (#4-B) not being listed as an incentive. #4-C is supposed to be a signed incentive but again, no indication that it might actually exist as such. I feel like most the the Frank Miller Presents books have had problems in CB. I don't know if they're solicited with UPCs that get changed or what but I think I have run into problems entering Ancient Enemies and Pandora as well. Nothing serious, it all likely stems from the publisher, but I am curious if anyone else has picked up on this. My memory isn't what it used to be.
  7. The copy on eBay has the same cover with the signed page pictured as well. https://www.ebay.com/itm/225283294596?chn=ps&_trkparms=ispr%3D1&amdata=enc%3A1ybhrAbMPRYe3VnEwebqWHg42&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=21562-222008-2056-1&mkcid=2&itemid=225283294596&targetid=297512520417&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=2840&poi=9047092&campaignid=19868683663&mkgroupid=145907810526&rlsatarget=pla-297512520417&abcId=&merchantid=8169814&gclid=Cj0KCQjwgNanBhDUARIsAAeIcAt_TRSNvkh5-xz8LdvlBxpEHgt5BjO4S-ER9p00OXflRx_mUhKND8AaAm7TEALw_wcB
  8. On The Trials of Ultraman, #2-B. 3-B, and 4-B all have "TV Photo Variant Cover by Arthur Adams" in the description field. If it's a photo cover, it's not by Arthur Adams. #4-B also has the wrong cover attached. I tried to submit the correct cover but it didn't take.
  9. Happened upon this by complete accident, but under the title "Door to Door, Night by Night" from Vault, in the picture folder there are 28 covers for "Dumbo (Ediciones Recreativas S. A.)." The covers also appear in their own title so these appear to be unneeded duplicates.
  10. Weird... not only did my images not show up, I can't edit the post either.... Any-who...
  11. It may be time to rethink the whole "newsstands aren't actually variants" stance. CGC now recognizes them and the market has been placing greater value on high grade copies of newsstand editions for some time. If I have the option of getting a book of the same grade for the same price in either newsstand or direct market, I'll take newsstand every day of the week. Newsstand editions were rarely treated as collectibles, making them less likely to survive in high grade. Also, as the direct market rose, the number of newsstand editions compared to direct market books dropped making them less common.
  12. Sorry, I was looking for info on another newsstand edition and found this. The problem on Prime #4 isn't that the newsstand has one UPC and direct has another, the direct has no UPC at all. Not on the front cover, not on the back cover....nowhere. Additionally, #4 newsstand is a higher price, $2.50 which appears to be an exception on the other issues of this title. The other newsstand versions all have the same price.
  13. I've been trying to update to the newest version of CB but had absolutely no luck at all. I used the updater, uninstalled the previous version and installed the latest only to find that I still had the old version. I did this a few times with the same result. I then uninstalled CB, went to the website and downloaded the "latest" version from My Registrations and still get On top of that, the 2772 version no longer has the proper icons. It's just a blank page. When I turn down the update, I am unable to update with the latest issue information as the update process simply ends. Has anyone else had this problem?
  14. In the 2008 Dark Horse series, there are three versions of #1 ( 1, 1-A, and 1-B). I not aware of three versions, only the two pictured as #1 and #1-B. Should #1 become #1-A? Is anyone aware of a third version out there?
