Finishing up the Superman and Batman strip collections, I’ve added these two Sunday books to the DCU reading order:

Superman: Sunday Classics 1939-1943

Batman: The Sunday Classics 1943-1946

Sorry again about the jitters this weekend, hopefully we’ll be back in full swing by tuesday.

We’ve been experiencing a little roughness this weekend. The updates aren’t working quite right. Hopefully you won’t notice any usability issues with the site as a whole, and I’ll get this weekend’s content and updates up again asap.

The following collections have been added to the DC Universe Reading Order list:

Batman: The Dailies 1943-1944

Batman: The Dailies 1944-1945

Batman: The Dailies 1945-1946

Batman: The Dailies 1943-1946 (Collects the above content)

I’ve also changed the ebay links so that they sort the results by price minimum to maximum instead of “best match” – for the isbn results especially, best match doesn’t really do anything, but even for the regular results it can be off target. I always browse by the lowest price first and I figure that’s what most other people would want also.

I had to do some more tweaking (to the comparison shopping system) to add in ISBN number fields for softcover and hardcover versions of collected editions. Again, the only book this is fully active on is Viking Glory: Viking Prince, which is a shame, because it’s one of the few I’ve tested with that doesn’t seem to actually have any results on Ebay or Half.com right now by ISBN for the softcover – no idea why, guess it’s too old/rare or just more often listed under the hardcover?

I also shifted the links around a bit and made it so they are not abbreviated on the book page. Hopefully that will make things easier to understand for site users.

On the book page, you can also now see the separate ISBN numbers for hardcover or softcover, if they are in there.

Question: About the listing display, do you guys like Ebay (Title) better or Ebay (Search) better for the link that sends you to a search by title?

The old isbn system will display as Ebay (ISBN) until they’ve been specifically noted as hardcover or softcover, and then they will display as Ebay (SC) or Ebay (HC). Same for the Half.com links.

Anyway, Beth has joined me in doing database work and got 20 Marvel books filled out today! After seeing me sitting here doing data entry for months on end, she’s decided she can help – truly this has become a family project.
