    I don't know if that's what you're looking for. They have good previews, but it's not easy to get from one publisher to another.

  • No...that is the general information. I am looking for the full previews plus "real" non-branded cover.

  • I finally heard back from one of the sites. The guy told me that he does it all manually.

    I have sent and e-mail off to each major publisher to see what data is available.

    Sorry, guess no one gets 10,000 points.

  • I would believe that Diamond has some kind of service like this but I guess you would have to be a distributer...
    Not collecting any more but I still enjoy comics now and then...

    You would think...but actually I called Diamond and they do not. Apparently it is just on each publisher to provide whatever.

  • I get the Boom Studios Previews direct from Boom Studios.

    (Which is how I upload the covers so quickly)

    basically its a case of getting on the Press list for the various companies.
