Collects/Reprints Include Variants? (Comic Book Forums)

ComicBookRealm.com's new design is here!

If you can't tell, the entire site has had a visual makeover! It is a large site and as such there might be a thing or two out of whack. If you notice any issues, please let us know about them here.

  • I don't, unless the variant has extra content, for example

    the first Lady Death series has an encore variant's that have like 10 extra pages it also has two versions of the tpb one reprints the regular issues the other reprints the encore variants.


    Plus if you do say a secret invasion TPB you'd have to add 50 books instead of 8

  • But what if it reprints ALL covers for each issue inside the TPB?

  • I thought about that earlier. Pretty much it's up to how you guys want to do it I just haven't been doing that mainly because I have know way of knowing if the variant prints are in them or not (which most of the time they are) Unless I own it. It wouldn't hurt if you listed the variants too

  • Or what if it's a collection of covers that doesn't include the interior art?

    I tend to include variants, but I understand either philosophy. If it includes all the variant covers and any extra material, it should definitely include the variants.

  • Oh man if we clean up those tpb and put them all in the series like you hinted at in the other thread I think it will loose the info you entered during the merge, I think


    Joshschr does it loose the info or is it just another update lag Eh?
