Re: My first addition: The Graphic Bible

If it has words & pictures acting together to tell a story, it belongs here :)

Re: WANTED: Pineapple Man

Looking at the Wikipedia page for Pineapple Man, I assume it was originally published in Hawaii? Possibly try contacting comic shops in Hawaii for a start.

Re: Inadvertently making things too complicated on the site?

I like what Rate Your Music does. There's a field for the band name and another field for "display name". Implementing something like that would let you input Norman's middle name or Molly's superhero name or Frank Quitely's real name, but leaving the most common names in the "displa...

Re: Inadvertently making things too complicated on the site?

Listing pen names as their real names kind of defeats the purpose of having the alias input though doesn't it? There's the argument of not dumbing the site down. If Chris could program the pop-up lists for creators to search the alias input as well as last names, then the problem may be solved. I d...

Re: Inadvertently making things too complicated on the site?

I would be fine having the most commonly used name of the creator being the "official" one listed, with the full name noted in the Notes field. Same deal for things like Norman Osborne's middle name, or Marvel Entertainment Group or any of its other iterations being listed simply as Marvel...

Re: Shops in Seattle

Nice. I'll add the Comic Hut to my list for places to check out if I get the opportunity to make a tour of eastside comic shops.

Yeah, while there's no strict rule against pimping your collection on the forum, it is fairly tasteless.

Re: Different types of comics?

Digest/Pocket Book would certainly make a good catchall format tag, and would work to replace the current manga tag. I'm not dead set on tankoubon, I would just prefer something other than 'manga'.

Re: Shops in Seattle

Zanadu Comics is the main shop downtown and is pretty well stocked with an even mix of superhero & indie comics. Lots of trades & action figures. All the back issues are kept in back, so you have to ask for specific issues. Golden Age Collectables is a few blocks away in the historic Pike P...

Re: Different types of comics?

I would like to think that people would understand what it meant just by context; that all the other manga volumes are listed as tankoubon. Maybe I am overestimating the intelligence of the average internet user, but I prefer the attempt to educate to trying to dumb things down with an obvious but w...

Re: Different types of comics?

The name for the standard manga format is Tankoubon. I agree with Uthor regarding the current format tag. I would favor changing all the present entries to that more official term, but I wonder how many people would know what it means. Better to have the catchall "Manga" format that people...

Re: Buying a comic

Maybe you'd have luck asking around at the Millarworld forums. There are a fair number of guys on there who live in the UK and would be more likely to have a copy or be able to point you towards a vendor that might have it. Curious. I was looking it up to provide you a link and it looks like they go...

Re: Different types of comics?

Direct Edition and Newsstand only really matter to hardcore collectors. They refer to the method of sale and distribution of a particular comic. In 99% of all cases, the only difference between the Newsstand and the Direct Market version is the UPC barcode on the cover and other related sales or dis...
