Re: Inadvertently making things too complicated on the site?

Not if people continue to add character variations for every singular one-shot appearance. I'm just waiting until someone has the bright idea to add individual variants to each "What if...?" issue.

Re: What can you do? Things to do in the site.

Would make more sense to add it as an imprint (like I did with the "DC Universe" that replaced the Rebirth banner) IMO. Same with "Marvel Now!" and "All-New Marvel Now!".

Yen Press

Last year there has been a change in the company - going from Hachette imprint to publisher (a joint-venture between Kadokawa and Hachette) and thus I added "Yen Press, LLC." as a new publisher with the following note: PLEASE NOTE: For titles published BEFORE ca. MAY 2016 use "Hachett...

Re: one or two Paracuellos #4? (based on true stories of orphans in Franco's dictatorship)

i think the indexer just didn't see a price in the comic. Most likely because there's none printed on the comic itself. Because something published in 1997 with an EURO price attached to it is something that can't exist since the € was introduced on January, 1st 2002 (several/most publications publ...

Re: Rejected Image Suggestions

Dunno really about the first one - maybe because of the compression artifacts, which makes it look a little bit zoomed-up. Happened to me a couple of times and it's the reason I stopped uploading character images for "Gold Digger" characters, because after the 10th or so rejection due to a...

Re: Possible to start collection/wishlish from scratch?

Send Chris a message, he'll take care of it. I've asked him a few times to do this for my collection in the past. :)

Re: What have you updated lately?

I merged "Harris Comics" and "Harris Publications, Inc." into ""Harris Publications, Inc.", added "Harris Comics" as an imprint and added it to the series and issues (not the magazines as the logo couldn't be found on the cover scans and thus I left them ...

Re: new publisher or imprint?

(it's B&W, so I didn't put in a colorist) You can add either "(story is monochromatic)" or "(graytones)", depending on which one is correct. Also not sure about the technicalities of the numbering and such, given that it seems to be a one-shot. But I'm trying! I guess in you...

Re: How to enter Rubicon's Timeline ("collection")?

IMO if those consultants should be included it should be in the "editors" field (like it was done with "Neil Gaiman" and the various Sandman-spin-offs were he was a "consult" IIRC).

Re: General Questions on TPB, Digital, Variants and more!

[*]Are the covers for digit runs of comics a variant? No. They are handled as their own series and get their own entry. See "Arrow" or "Mortal Kombat X" for example. What about cover price for digital runs? That's a tricky one as prices often tend to change. I entrer the one I c...

Re: The Star Wars Reboot

I agree on Transformers (I'm not reading the books anymore to make a definitive decision (although I think that sutff like "Movie Universe" or versions from crossovers could be removed) but as for G.I. Joe basically all characters are the same (there's a second Snake-Eyes in the main conti...

Re: Cover art question

I created the entry "(screenshot)" a few years ago for cases like this. It's not perfect but obviously other people started adapting and using that option.

Re: The Star Wars Reboot

Agreed. Does this also mean I could remove the gazzilion versions of Optimus Prime and other Transformers (somebody created entries for each and every continuity and it's a total mess) and the G.I. Joe characters (there are versions for the Hasbro/Marvel continuity - with DDP thrown in - as well as ...

Re: comicbookdb mainpage: theme covers of the Day?

The Cooke tribute on the main page is a very nice touch. Would be great if it could stay that way for a couple of days. :)

Still shocked and sad. R.I.P.

Re: Help with fixing DC and Marvel different character versions?

Yeah, I stopped adding DC characters to any comic a long time ago, because: Why bother? In most cases I most likely pick the wrong one because of stuff like this. Why we can't have simply one entry for e.g. "Batman" (Bruce Wayne), no matter if pre-cris, post-crisis and pre-Flushpoint and m...
