200 titles added since February 2020!

The plan for the rest of 2020 is this: my honourable assistant Peter Huggins is working his way through Marvel and has got right through to letter Z and is back-filling information on the first page of each title. We have also brought up to date all Marvel comics to the latest import (cover date Sep 2016) and has separated each comic out so variants are easier to find. By the end of 2020, Marvel should be complete with all exisiting titles put in. DC is currently complete though there's some catching up to do on some Hardcover collections and Trade paperbacks.

I meanwhile am adding tons of titles and covers to the UK section (about 2,000 covers since October 1st 2019) and I have brought Marvel UK comics up to date in lots of instances so Peter will add to that and bring all Marvel titles up to the latest import. The Guide has grown by 20% in size in the last 18 months so I am pleased with that.

Stop Press! I have just completed a significant pass through the UK section so that now all the titles have all their issues listed bar a few very long running ancient titles - in fact I have added over 23,000 more issues to the UK section this year! And added a lot more cover illustrations, about 1100 or so.


We may well expand from there to include personal favourites from my collection like Gold Key and Charlton, Atlas and assorted Golden Age. It is unlikely I will touch Indpendents as there are other Guides for that and I am not interested in gold foil limited Lady Death number Half quite honestly.


We (just two of us, at weekends and when we can) are doing this Guide from scratch, transposing  all my published Guides from 1989-1997 plus all the work I have done since them. About 6,000,000 words we calculate!

Stick with us and contribute if you can.

All best
