Database Update Time!

I created a DC War Stories list similar to the DC Westerns one.

I added an image for the series header from the Sgt Rock showcase.

Beth added covers and publication information to the following books:

Batman The Dark Knight Archives Vol 4

Batman The Dark Knight Archives Vol 5

Batman Archives Vol 3

Batman The Dailies 1943-1944 (Does anyone have this book. Is this cover correct?)

Batman Archives Vol 4

Batman The Dark Knight Archives Vol 6

I’ll try to add higher quality cover scans to the archives when I can get my hands on the books.

I’ve also updated the following books:

Jonah Hex: Counting Corpses (Cover updated, since we have the final art now. Everything else is good, just waiting on the CBDB link until this one is complete.)

Jonah Hex: No Way Back (Complete!)

The Enemy Ace Archives Vol. 1 (Complete!)

The Enemy Ace Archives Vol. 2 (Complete!)

Showcase Presents: Enemy Ace (Complete! Just in time for the review.)

Doc Savage: The Man Of Bronze (Cover updated, since we have the final art now. Complete! Hope to review this one tomorrow.)

We’re now totally complete with character tags, edition, publication info, etc up to Superman: The Action Comics Archives Vol. 1.

We may be inching along, but it’s great to see solid progress, even a little at a time.

Likewise, I’m now at 1650 Marvel books with full publication information in the offline database. That leaves about 400 more that I’ve got a title for at least, and probably a hundred or so that I don’t know about yet. I was able to get two hundred typed done last night, though after the review today my hand is cramping something terrible.

And speaking of reviews, now that you’ve heard my opinion on Enemy Ace if any of you guys want to weigh in on either of the Archives feel free. When it comes to books that repeat the same content, I don’t want to do them back to back.

I may come back to them later if I end up buying them.

I wonder how many words I’ve typed on this website? Certainly more than a novel, considering the reviews tend to be about 1000-1500. Huh.

    Haha, I find it’s best not to think in terms of words counts…that can get just plain depressing. I’ve realized that by the end of today (the last day of the semester! Yay!!) I’ll have typed up 60 pages in the last two weeks alone, in the form of three major seminar papers. When I think about the fact that that’s roughly the equivalent of 30-40 reviews I could have written…yeah, that kinda sucks, haha. Oh well…hopefully at least some of what I’ve written this semester will be publishable, as long as I work on it a little more next year.

    haha I think my parents and other non-comics acquaintances see it the other way – all that writing about comics could have been term papers! Why aren’t I a doctor yet?
