incorrect cover uploaded for Araknis (1996) - #1 (variant)?

Postby EarthFurst » Sat Apr 04, 2009 3:58 am

I noticed the covers uploaded for
Araknis (1996) - #1 (Variant)
and
Araknis: Shades of Evil (1995) - #1
seem to be the same cover.

I don't have either issue.
Since the cover image has "Mushroom" logo on it,
and comicbookdb page 151490 for Araknis (1996) - #1 (Variant) says the variant was published by "Mystic Comics", I'm guessing cover at 151490 is incorrect.

(example of Mystic covers at http://comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=76518 and http://milehighcomics.com/cgi-bin/backi ... MITED%20ED )

request for those with a copy of Araknis: Shades of Evil #1

Postby EarthFurst » Tue Apr 28, 2009 9:57 am

I notice
http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=151490
and
http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=17382
have slightly different credits (Both have different Letterer and Cover Artist credited. 151490 has additional credits and doesn't list an editor.)

Can those with a copy of Araknis: Shades of Evil #1,
please double-check the credits at http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=17382 ? Thank you.

I think...

I am pretty sure that you are right. I think that the shades of evil is the correct entry, but I would have to dig out the comic to confirm that which, much to my shame, it is the large unsorted filing cabinet, but I can try to do that later tonight to confirm.

Mile High is not always correct with their listings either...it is not the most reliable source.

I will try to post again later if I can find the comic and confirm the credits and everything.

Yeah, that variant for issue #1 of the 1996 series is definitely wrong. It's the cover for the 1995 series' issue #1. Someone needs to delete the variant entry.

Since I've got all the issues pulled out of the box now, I guess I'll make sure the credits are right. I'm pretty sure I've done this before for these books but it doesn't hurt to check again. Never thought I'd ever look at these books again, to be honest. They were awful! :lol:

Okay, so yeah, the credits looked good for the most part. Just a couple minor corrections needed and I've taken care of them. As mentioned, the cover for 1996's issue #1 should be deleted if there actually was a variant for that issue; if no variant, then the entry should obviously be removed completely.
