  • Marvel Corrections - Variant Covers

  • As I am going through and cataloguing my collection, and add new issues, I thought it be useful to note down corrections needed in the CBR database. This way, the database can become just a little more accurate. As it is laborious, I’ll submit one per quarter.

    Here are some corrections I have noted down in regards to Variant Covers

    VARIANT COVERS
    Assumption: The five digit extension number of the barcode means:
    001 (issue number); 1 (what cover variant); 1 (what printing)
    E.g. 00121 = issue 1, cover variant 2, first printing

    Granted, Marvel Comics are hopelessly inconsistent in this regards, and there are more errors than are worth listing. But… the approach (and therefore the assumption) is valid.

    Remaining from Q2 2019 (posted 22 June, 2019):

    1G 00116 Incorrect extension. This is not the 6th printing, and cannot be Variant 6 as 00161 already exists?
