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?

Time is on our side, my friends. We strive to do it right the first time, but we can do and undo changes until we decide what right is.

Is there a way to identify the variants - other than looking each up on the site and comparing the covers? That gets tiring and may also be confusing with the cover similarities. Like, is there a code on the publication script?

Are you talking about how to catalog which variant you have on CBR? If it's not cover specific, you can check the fine print inside the comic (the indicia), and determine if you have a 1st print, 2nd print, etc.

If you're trying to tell the difference between variants on CBR, there should be a description. If you're not in the description window, but the new release report or something, you can hover over the variant # and a description should pop up.

Basically how to tell which variant it is for adding to Master Pile. In the description of X-Men v2 # 1, it just lists it as issues number 1. With 5 variations, I had to compare each with the cover shown for matching variant to put in correctly.

This X-Men #1? It has a description. Each of the variants have a description also, so if you don't want to load them, you can hover over them and it will pop up faster.

That's the fastest way to do it. The letters don't necessarily mean anything, although some publishers (Devil's Due, IDW or Dynamite, I think) will list them on their site by A, B, C, etc.
