  1. Chamber of Chills (Harvey) #24 had the incorrect cover. It had the same cover as #4. Oddly enough #4 has the number 24 on the cover which probably created the confusion. I tried to submit the correct cover but don't have one large enough to override the current one. The correct cover is below.
  2. I'm finding credits for comic art under "Sam Moskowitz." There most definitely was a Sam Moskowitz but he was not an artist, he was known as a writer, critic and sci-fi fan/collector. Seymour "Sy" Moskowitz was a comic artist active from 1952 thru 1956 and there is practically no information anywhere that I can find. There were only about a half dozen Sam Moskowitz credits that I found and I submitted corrections on them.
  3. This book has the wrong cover attached to it. There was another Beware series from Youthful with the cover in CB. In all of these books, one of the storyline titles aligns with a cover blurb. Changing this cover and adding the other title continues this. I have added the Youthful book but can't change the cover in the Trojan series. The correct cover is below.
  4. Okay, it's a little clearer now but I'm still not 100% sure on this. This book is weird in every way. The title is misleading in that it has little to do with the actual death of Alex Raymond and is more of an analysis of inking techniques by genuine masters of the medium. Interesting, but not what the title leads one to believe. The original printed edition (I had originally listed as TPB 1) is not the same as the hardcover that is now available, as it only contains the first 119 pages of the full 308 page book. The book I submitted as TPB 2 is not in the hardcover at all, it's addit
  5. I'll try reading again tomorrow but none of this makes any sense to me. I don't have my computer with CB on it to look at any of this either. Assuming, I can make sense of it and remember to do anything, I'll try this weekend.
  6. I wasn't sure how to handle this, so I changed the HC-1, which was the only book in CB originally, to Bk 1. The problem is that there are three different versions of Bk 1. There is the standard edition which is what CB had. There is the limited Kickstarter edition with a singed plate added. Then there is an error edition in which blue inks were left out of a good portion of the end of the book. Additionally, the original TPB was the "California Test Edition" which was a fund raiser in an attempt to finish the book. There is also a book of mockups copying the pages sent between the creato
  7. For any that haven't read this book, it's incredible. The art is stunning and the story is about many things and one thing, all at the same time. I read a review describing it as "a graphic novel about all wars" which fits but it's also about the warriors that fought them and the consequences they live with moving forward. I put it beside Batman: Night Cries as the best comics on the subject of PTSD. Well worth the time to track down a copy! As for corrections, there are a few that need to be made. First, I am unable to find any evidence of the #1 listed as "Prestige Format" at $4.95
  8. In cleaning up the variants that came up as unrecognized due to the recent changes, I found my Marvels Project sketch covers that I had entered similarly all intact!
  9. Before I start, how about a big round of applause for everyone involved in re-designating the variants in CB? Holy cow, I can't imagine what a monumental task that must have been or how long it took. Strong work! I found it all done because I had some variants in All-Star Batman (the hyphen is important) that were no longer recognized. I got my books worked out but noticed some anomalies in others. All-Star Batman #1-V-29 is listed as a Midtown Comics Exclusive cover by Tyler Kirkham but has the #1-S Ben Oliver variant pictured. Additionally, the actual Midtown Kirkham variant i
  10. Nothing has turned up. I still have some old backups I want to check just to be certain but it's not looking good.
  11. The new update fixed the problem with being able to edit the issues but the pics are still gone. All the standard pics are there but my own additions are not.
  12. No COA, the gold "seal" and printed "Signed Edition" theoretically fill that role. Unless they have changed recently, I've never seen an IDW Signed Edition with a COA.
  13. No, the pics are all gone. I put them in using the method described. They're not in the file at all now which means a ton more time rescanning. Everything is in the original default location as it has always has been. None of the higher prints have a pic associated with them now but did in the past. I really thought the upper end of printings was 50 as I have another book I set aside using that one. Nothing special just an oddball book I wanted to keep my own scan for in addition to the regular edition. I didn't think to check the pic on that one but will tomorrow.
