Another issue that's come up that could fall under this heading has occurred with Marvel titles reverting to their original numbering and the collections of some of those series. It's not exactly the same type of thing that was discussed before, but there are similarities. Ultimate Spider-Man highlights the issue..http://www.comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=88http://www.comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=24838
We'll focus on just the regular TPBs and the Premiere HCs.
For the first title, and covering the first run of issues #1-133, there are 22 numbered TPBs, and 4 numbered (albeit random) Premiere HCs.
For the second title, issues #1-14 are collected in the first two TPBs and HCs. Note the collections' volume numbers start again with TPB/HC vol. 01
Things get tricky now. After issue 15 of the second title, the numbering reverts back to the first title with issue #150.
The collections titled "Death of Spider-Man Prelude" are TPB/HC vol. 03 and are listed under the second title despite only reprinting one issue from that title.http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=230642http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=240480
The next volume, vol. 04 "Death of Spider-Man" has entries under both titles, but only reprints issues from the first title.http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=247225http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=247348http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=236152
All of the DoSM Prelude and DoSM collections should be listed under the first title, but we should figure out a standard to separate the newer TPB/Premiere HC vol. 03 and subsequent volumes from the earlier ones. Presently, we have one of the hardcovers numbered simply "Premiere HC" since the member who entered it didn't know what to do about the numbering, I imagine. And one DoSM TPB volume mixed in with the old trades:
TPB vol. 04 LegacyTPB vol. 04 Death of Spider-Man
TPB vol. 03 Double Trouble
TPB vol. 02 Learning Curve
The only thing that's coming to mind immediately would be to ignore the volume numbers on the newer TPB/HCs, and instead continue the volume numbers from the last of the old trades under the first title. For example, this issue could be TPB vol. 23 instead:http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=205153
Anyone have any better idea?
