adding a missing issue

Recommended Posts

Hi Mark --

*Usually* you simply add the issue using the next variant letter in the alphabet.  Sometimes, however, there are so many variants for a particular issue that ComicBase runs out of letters of the alphabet for the variants.  (See the infamous "Crisis of Infinite Godzillas" thread over on the old message boards for more info on that.)

For which specific comic book issue are you trying to add a variant?  


EDITED TO ADD:  The mechanics of adding the issue and scan etc to your database are covered in ComicBase Livestream #14 starting at roughly the 30 minute mark.

The basics to adding an Item # (Issue) that is not in CB are:

Go to the Title you want to add the missing Item # to.
Click on the + button (located above the grid on the right side of the window)
By default, it will be filled in with the next Item #.  You can change this for the Item # that you are adding the variant.
For a first Variant, you would normally just need to change the Variation to the next available letter.
ex. If there are no variants listed, you could choose Variation A. If there are already Variations A, B, and C, you can choose Variation D.

You can change/add other values, as needed. i.e. Cover Price, Cost, Condition, etc.
