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!".

I do not think a story arc or imprint would qualify for the majority of the titles. It is more of a marketing push than a traditional imprint.

I agree with Spid. Marvel Legacy is not an imprint or story arc. DC Universe is not an imprint or story arc. Marvel Now, All-New Marvel Now, Avengers Now, New 52, Rebirth, etc. are not imprints or story arcs any more than Marvel Comics Group, Image Comics Group, The World's Greatest Comic Magazine, The Non-Mutant Super-Hero, Superman Comics, Drawing the Line at $2.99, DCnu (these are the ones I thought of off the top of my head) or other similar tag lines. All something to put in the notes section or create a user list.

Another to do: figure out correct dates for some of Rex Libris'

currently http://comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=2487 has :

(issue number) (cover date)
13... October 2008
12...August 2008
11...April 2008
10...January 2008
9...May 2007
8...May 2007
7...February 2007
6...August 2005
5...August 2005
4...May 2006
3...February 2006
2...November 2005
1....August 2005

So db says #5 and #6 have same date as #1, which seem like an error when issue added to database (since that would make #4 coming out half-year AFTER #5)

#8 and #9 both dated "May 2007" in database, which possible ... but I'm wondering if just an error made when adding one of them to database.

Another to do: figure out correct dates for two issues of Write Now (magazine)

currently http://comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=20333 has :

(issue number) (cover date)
...
10...August 2005
9...November 2004
8...November 2004
7...May 2004
...
1...August 2002

So #8 and #9 both dated "November 2004" in database, which possible ... but seems like an error since
the cover of #8 seems to say (fuzzy scan) "August 2004"
and the cover of #9 seems to say "Feb 2005".

Adjusted the Write Now mag's dates. I checked out their previews on Issuu, and your guesses were correct.

So one of the books of the day is

Editorial Unilit (1987) - #1
"Hermanos Trueno y Los Contrabandistas"
Image

but the issue page (for that comic) http://comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=378405
has no credits on page.

The cover seemed to me like a reprint of an English-language Christian comic so I poked around.

The cover includes "Al Hartley"
so checked out his credits and found
Adventure! with the Brothers: Hang in There (1979) (one issue) http://comicbookdb.com/title_covergallery.php?ID=26316
and
Adventure! with the Brothers: The Cult Escape (1980) http://comicbookdb.com/title_covergallery.php?ID=22742
but those two didn't have the cover art i was looking for

and then i checked out another Brothers series by Al and found
Adventure! with the Brothers: Smashing the Smugglers' Ring (1982)
http://comicbookdb.com/title_covergallery.php?ID=22632
with cover Image

Is it fair to link
Editorial Unilit (1987) - #1 "Hermanos Trueno y Los Contrabandistas"
as a reprint of
Adventure! with the Brothers: Smashing the Smugglers' Ring (1982) #1 http://comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=162610
using comicbookdb issue_reprint.php feature ?

That's fair. The subtitles seem to suggest the same contents too. Well done research.
