Essential X-Men confusion

Postby SaturnPrime » Sat Jul 08, 2006 5:32 am

Ok, the Essentials for the early X-Men books are duplicated in two places in the database and a few times the cover image doesn't match up with the inputted data. I prepped this rather than doing a buncha problem notifications. So we are all on the same page, this is what really exists: (Early issues were called X-Men, but retroactively renamed Uncanny X-Men)

Essential Uncanny X-Men TPB vol. 01 (Uncanny X-Men #1-24)
Essential Classic X-Men TPB vol. 02 (Uncanny X-Men #25-53 and Avengers #53)
Essential X-Men TPB vol. 01 (Giant-Size X-Men #1 and Uncanny X-Men #94-119)
Essential X-Men TPB vol. 02 (Uncanny X-Men #120-144)
Essential X-Men TPB vol. 03 (Uncanny X-Men #145-161, Annuals #3-5)
Essential X-Men TPB vol. 04 (Uncanny X-Men #162-179 and Annual #6, and X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills)
Essential X-Men TPB vol. 05 (Uncanny X-Men #180-198, Annuals #7-8 )
Essential X-Men TPB vol. 06 (Uncanny X-Men #199-213, New Mutants Special Edition #1, X-Men Annual #9, X-Factor #9-11, New Mutants #46, Thor #373-374 and Power Pack #27)
Essential X-Men TPB vol. 07 (Uncanny X-Men #214-228 & Annual #10-11 & Fantastic Four vs. The X-Men #1-4)

Titles are duplicated at http://www.comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=6661 and http://www.comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=60. I would prefer the first location to be used since issues from other series are included as well as a personal preference that Essentials, Masterworks, Archives and Showcases are listed separately under separate titles. The first location needs issue renaming to reflect the TPB form. "Essential Uncanny X-Men" & "Essential Classic X-Men" need to be created.

This listing is the one where the photo doesn't match the information.

Other entries which Essentials are inside the series they reprint instead of their own series and may need looking at: http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=23149 (X-Factor), http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=19208 (
Werewolf By Night), http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=38632 http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=38629 , http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=25454 (Tomb of Dracula), http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=38607 (Silver Surfer), http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=34136 (Avengers), http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=25430 (Spider-Man), http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=37376 (FF)

Sorry about the longwindedness, better to give too much information than not enough.
