I tried to search the forums to see if this has been asked but the search feature wasn't working.

I want to add the early 90's reprints of some 50's EC titles. What's the guidance on how to input them? Anything special to label them reprints or just start a title with a cover date of 1990?

These should be entered as a title with a start date of 1990. I had a bunch of these back in the day and it was indeed treated as a new title, so that's how I'd handle things. Then, just mark these as a reprint of the original title if the original issues have been entered into the database.

Sounds good - how do you mark them as a reprint of the original title?
