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

Database has two titles for Paracuellos (1977)

Paracuellos (1977) (#1-6) : http://comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=50697
#6 ... 2003
#5 ... 2002
#4 ... 2001 {publisher: Ediciones Glénat; "Cover Price: Free"} http://comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=357210
#3 ... 1999
#2 .... May 1982
#1 ... 1977

Paracuellos (1997) (with only #4) : http://comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=10189
#4 ... 1997 {publisher: Ediciones Glénat; "Cover Price: Euro € 10.00"} http://comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=67595

So both #4 have the same cover, same publisher (and same writer/penciller).
I doubt ID=357210 was free, i think the indexer just didn't see a price in the comic.

re ID=10189 being "published" in 1997 seems doubtful, as the #3 above has publish date of 1999. (ie. unlikely that #4 was published before #3)
Still trying to learn the ways of the ComicBookDB. http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/List_of_upcoming_comics

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 published in 2001 and some very few from 2000 had prices printed in both the old currency and the new one on it). So the indexer probably took the prices incorrectly from a reprint or from the publisher's price back in 2006 when the issue was indexed (doubtful that the book should be available in it's first printing with a publisher such as Glénat though).

It's unfortunately something that happened with a LOT of French-Belgian issues in the data base that eventually have to be corrected.

It's a shame that "Free" is the only displayable option and that there's no "Price unknown" option or that at least "free" could be renamed to "Free/Price unnown".
