Also, a lot of these aren't well-archived in CBDB, which is kind of annoying. Many only have the UK editions of the trades listed, and not the North American ones.

I can't imagine anything different being collected in the US versions as the whole point of the trades is that they are collecting every last story and putting them into order. The only ones they exclude are the ones they got sued over, so content should be identical in US versions.

I doubt anything is being excluded overall, it's just a matter of whether the books end at the same point. For example, there's a difference of about 16 pages between the US version and the UK version of the first Judge Dredd book. I haven't investigated yet whether that means one collects a few less stories than the other or what.

Or extra content like introductions, tables of contents, etc. I don't know yet, but I'll figure it out.

Well if you ever get the first volume we can do a detailed analysis of what it is page by page if you want. I have a feeling it'll be adverts. I have a couple US trades, and unlike the UK versions, they all seem to contain ads.

Marc, you can go ahead and look through those self contained books and approve them up, if you'd like (when you have time of course, I know you've got a busy couple weeks.) I'm going to leave the self contained section to you guys for now.

Mainly, make sure they've got those end date and sort title values (IE, "nobody" vs "the nobody" in sort value)

Off to work! I'll try to get some more dc books in today, but it's my friday so I might hit the bar again, haha

great, thanks Simon. I've been meaning to read the rest of that series myself (they, Ex Machina, and Astro City are actually on a little shelf right by my bed. After I finish this beckett novel I'm reading, I'm going to dive into one of those series.)

I'm about to dive into Ex Machina too. Well, "re-dive" I should maybe say. I got caught up around the time the sixth trade came out, but then didn't keep up with it after that. The trades were coming out like a year apart after that, so it was kinda tough. Anyway, as soon as I have the time (soon, I hope) I'm going to re-read the first six trades and then the final four. I seriously can't wait, because the ones I read were absolutely amazing.

yeah, I just got 10 in the mail last week. I was waiting until I had them all, with the intention of reading it straight through.

They're really good (both Ex and Concrete), although the ending of Ex has split opinions of the fans (I liked it personally).

I've yet to read Astro City, is it any good?

Also while I was on there I added the other 7 volumes of tin onto the site.

I changed the title layout for it though; you currently had adventures of tintin vol.X: "adventure 1" "adventure 2" etc. The titles were looking too long (vol 8 has 4 adventures!), so I cut off the "adventure X" part and left that for the issues included section.

So you'll either have to mod the titles of the ones I did to match the first one or mod the first one to the shorter title. You'll also have to add the Tintin tag to vol.1 as it doesn't have one but I added them to the other 7.
