Image is releasing a bunch of $1 reprints for big titles from the last few years. Boom! gives us a 3rd issue for Dune: House Corrino. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Return #4 gives us what feels like a final battle, which was what this story was leading up to. Happy reading!

Movie Connect

Improved search behaviour

May 24th, 2024

In today’s update, we improved the behaviour after searching using the search box top right.
Previously, when you selected a movie from the “suggestions dropdown”, the software would take you to a separate full screen page showing the details of that movie. This behaviour was a bit annoying as it would take you away from the main screen and you needed to click “Back” on the top left to get back to it. Also, the main screen would then show you the full collection again and would be scrolled back at the top again. Meh..

A common situation for most users of the Comic Connect web-app: finding a specific issue in your comic database. Up till now, the way to do this was: first find the series (using the search box top right, or the search box above the series folder list), then just scroll down the issue list to find the issue you were looking for. It worked, but could take some time, especially for series with lots of issues.

So to avoid the annoying scrolling part, we created a new “Jump to Issue” feature (aka “the sniper button”)

CLZ Comics (iOS)

v9.2.2: A couple of fixes

May 22nd, 2024

Fixed:

  • Side menu now goes “over” the list and doesn’t “squash” the list anymore
  • In some cases an invisible filter could hide some comics


CLZ Comics 9.2 is live and this one is for the CovrPrice subscribers!

After using the “Update Values” tool from the menu, to update the values from CovrPrice, the apps shows you a report of which values have change and by how much. For today’s v9.2 update, we re-designed this report and added some new features:

  • Tap a comic to pop up a screen with the full comic details
  • Now sort your list by the Value Change or by the Value itself
  • Filter the list by Collection Status, e.g. to show In Collection comics only
  • The list now includes Variant Descriptions!
  • Finally: a completely redesign of the list entries to make it more readable
