The ComicBase Livestream thread!


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this was covered in an earlier video, I haven't watched the whole back catalog, but I think a good topic I would like to see a couple of examples of what a reviewer of submissions sees when reviewing submissions and how they process them.  A couple of examples would be helpful - a wholly new issue, an edited Title description, an edited Notes, a newly-supplied Cover Artist, etc.  What kinds of things are easily recognized, what kinds of things are best warned about ahead of time (and how to bring them up, and to whom).

If this can actually be shown, it sounds like a good idea. The topic was mentioned at least once but not in great detail.  In general:

If a change to an existing Publisher/Title/Issue # (which uniquely identifies an item) is sent and not part of the unique items), the process can compare the submission with the Master Database and display the differences (with changes high-lighted in some fashion, I believe).

If a change is a new submission, there would be nothing to compare.

This is important because if a change is made to anything that is needed to uniquely identify an entry (Publisher/Title/Issue #), it will look like a new submission since it can't be found in the Master Database. These types of changes would need to be brought to HC's attention through an email to Support, on Slack (if you can) or here in the forums.

There was a little discussion in the chat bar last week about storage for comic books.  I would like to see Pete address that topic, say what he uses, and maybe what some of the other ComicBase people use.

Thanks!

Agreed. Storage options would be a good topic. If I recall correctly, Pete mentioned filing cabinets for storing comics. If you use Facebook, there is a group I follow that deals specifically with comic collectors who use filing cabinets to store their collections. The Facebook page/group goes by the name of "Comic File Cabinets" https://www.facebook.com/groups/555329177952584/

Question:  A few weeks back CGC announced on their website that they would start recognizing and identifying newsstand and multi-pack editions of comics on their labels.  Do you think this effectively ends the debate (for all practical purposes) on if these editions of comic books should be treated as different/variants related to the direct edition versions?  If so, how will CB change to address this new reality for the collecting community?

CGC Now Recognizes Newsstand Editions and Multi-Packs on CGC Label | CGC (cgccomics.com)

Thanks!

So in yesterday's Livestream, @Peter R. Bickford said that we should be posting our drink recipes.  I checked with Pete, and he said the recipes should go in this thread rather than start a new one.  

My Gingerbread Old Fashioned recipe:

    • 1 part Bittermilk #7 (Bittermilk website; Amazon link for Bittermilk #7)
    • 4 parts bourbon whiskey or rye whiskey (with higher proof whiskeys, I will often 2 parts whiskey and 2 parts ginger ale)
    •  stir and add ice
    •  optional:  garnish with an orange wedge and/or maraschino cherry

You can also make a "Shirley Temple" version for people and/or occasions where alcohol not preferred:

    •  add a generous drop of maraschino syrup to an old fashioned glass
    •  1 part Bittermilk #7
    •  4 parts ginger ale
    •  stir and add ice

   

Stay tuned for Pete's Sugar Cookie Martini recipe!  If he doesn't post it in a couple of days, I will start pestering him on Slack.  

I hope that everybody has a great set of holidays (no matter which ones you observe)!

Sugar Cookie Martini

(adapted from Wholefully)

Tastes like a sugar cookie with a slight hint of almond/apricot from the Amaretto. Delicious, but loaded with calories, so save these for a special occasion!

 

Ingredients:

- Vanilla frosting and sprinkles for rimming the glass... OR...  Regular sugar (or green/red colored sugar if you're feeling festive). 

Pro tip: Double all the following to serve two drinks out of the same shaker (After all, who wants to drink alone?)

- 1.5 oz Vanilla vodka

- 1.5 oz Irish cream

- 2 oz. whole milk (1/4 cup)

- 3/4 oz Amaretto

- 1 tsp. powdered sugar (can be omitted to drop a few calories if you like)

- Ice

 

Steps

1. EITHER:

    - Rim the glass with frosting/red/green sprinkles. Yes, this seems insane, but the drink really needs this hit of sweetness. So if you choose to not do frosting, at least...

   - Wet the edge of the glass with water, then briefly dip it into a plate with sugar on it to rim the glass. Use red/green colored sugar if available for a more festive look. 

2. In a cocktail shaker loaded with ice, add the vanilla vodka, Irish cream, milk, amaretto, powdered sugar, and ice. Close the lid and shake vigorously for at least 15 seconds

3. Pour into the sugar or frosting-rimmed glass and enjoy!

Suggestiuon: A "ComicBase TV: Video Guides and Tips" YouTube video (or future livestream episode), shwoing each step involved in merging separate databases together. Especially how to go back to the original databases in case we do not like the outcome of the merger and would prefer to go back to how it was in the beginning.

Thanks,

I don't know if Pete is aware but StreamYard has a nifty built in feature to draw a name from the chat at random based on them putting in a word....like PETERPARKER if the question was Spider-Man's identity. That way he would never again have to figure out who was first with the correct answer. He would say "you have 10 seconds (or whatever) to tyep the correct answer" (and tell the chat to use no spaces)..then when he hits DRAW it randomly selects a chatter with that answer. It even has a cool animation for the draw. And no I do not work for StreamYard I've just been in a LOT of YT LiveStreams running StreamYard
