New Comic Book Day, week 15: 395 new releases!

April 10th, 2024

NCBD! Not as many as the previous weeks, we have worked on 395 new releases and 158 actual new unique issues.
Rat City releases this week which gives us a Spider-Man 2099/ Batman Beyond spin on the Spawn universe. Another Disney character has been added to Dynamite’s comic title roster: Hercules! Edge of Spider-Verse gives us a new Spider-Man variant but this time in space. Issue 2 of Batman / Dylan Dog releases this week, that has been a solid read so far!

All new books are now available in the CLZ Core online database, easily found through your trusted Add Comics screen.
TIP: use the Pull List tab in the Add Comics screen to see all this week’s releases in one place!

A big update for your Comic Connect web-based software today, which is all about pick list fields.

Pick list fields (and the pick lists behind them) are an important part of your comic database. These are the fields in the Edit screen that let you pick from a list of possible values, with that list being fully configurable by you the user.
Examples of pick list fields are Storage Box, Owner, Genres and Tags (both multi value pick list fields), but also Series, Series Group and Publisher.

Now, a lot of the questions we usually get about Comic Connect are related to pick list fields and can usually be answered with:

“Just use the Manage Pick Lists screen”

Renaming Storage Boxes, Merging duplicate Series, fixing series sort problems, fixing typos in creator names, etc… it is all done in the Manage Pick Lists (MPL) screen. An important and powerful screen, but… not so easy to find if you don’t know where to look or don’t even know what to look for.

With today’s Connect update, we are making this a lot easier: We have improved the Manage Pick Lists screen itself AND made it more accessible / discoverable:

In short:

  • Improved Manage Pick Lists (MPL) screen
  • Easy access to the MPL screen right from the folder panel
  • Refreshed Edit Comic screen, with better pick list fields and direct MPL access

v9.1.3: Faster barcode scanner!

April 4th, 2024

Adding comics by barcode is one the main features of the app and an essential part of that is the camera barcode scanner.

For this update, our mobile app developer Pim has spent a few days optimizing that camera barcode scanner. The idea was to make better use of the power of today’s devices, both in cameras and computing power.

And the results of his tweaks are amazing. The scanner is now much faster!

The difference in scanning speed will be especially noticeable when scanning the longer barcodes seen on modern comics, with a 2 digit or 5 digit extension. Correctly scanning that extension is essential for identifying the exact issue and variant.

We would love to hear how the new scanner works out for you, please let us know in this Club CLZ post here!

Fixed

  • Fixed: Update from Core would always report updates even if there were none

CLZ introduces new Key Comic levels per April 1

April 1st, 2024

Since November 2021, CLZ has been providing you Key Comic information for your comics, like first appearances, cameo appearance, deaths, iconic covers, etc.. Up till now, we have been indicating the importance of Key Comics using Major Key (yellow) and Minor Key (blue) designations.

However, starting today, we are renaming Major and Minor and are introducing several extra Key Comic importance levels, so that we can give you a more granular indication of a comic’s importance.

Here’s an overview of the new Key Comic levels, with some examples:

We hope you will enjoy these new key indicators!

January 31st, 2024

It is Wednesday again, always the craziest day at the CLZ HQ. We always try to prepare as many releases up front, which works pretty well for DC, but then lots of variants and exclusives are only revealed on NCBD itself, so that is a challenge each and every week.

This week, we see only 177 actual unique new issues, but because of all the variants, the total number of releases comes at 441! All available in your Add Comics screen now.

Up until today, the CovrPrice integration has been all about getting values for the comics in your collection. Super useful of course, but… since launch (back in October 2022), a common question from CovrPrice subscribers has been:

“How can I quickly check the value of a comic that is not in my collection?”

And they’re right. There’s other situations in which you may want to check a comic’s actual value, e.g. when you are looking at a comic you may want to buy.

Until now, our recommendation has always been: “Either use the CovrPrice.com website, OR, create a “Temp” collection in your app and add the comic there so that you can see the value”.

But not anymore! Your Comic Connect software now includes a new “Check Value” screen, that lets you quickly check a value of a comic, either by scanning its barcode, or by using the super-fast issue search. Just set it to Raw or Slabbed, pick a grade and go!
