Real easy and fun
"Just bought your comic book data base software and app today. I work from home and found myself adding comics to the data base instead of focusing on work. :) You have made this real easy and fun. I remember when I was a kid and attempted to catalogue my comics by creating a custom FileMaker Pro project. I know I've only touched the surface of what the software can do, but I am loving it and cannot wait to learn how to really use it."

Done in just a week
"I love your product, for 15 years I have been trying to catalogue all my books and had to quit because of time constraints, but with your db I got it done in just a week, thank you."

Glad I found Collectorz.com when I did
"I am simply weggeblazen (I tried Google Translate to capture "blown away" in Dutch ... hope it is correct) by Comic Collector Pro.
Since 2006, I increased my trading card collection from a shoe box of 200 to over 20,000. The first thing I did after organizing the first 1,000 of these was obtain cataloguing software. The best has "easy" to understand input screens/processes, strong help features, robust search capability, customization for cards not currently found in the product, extensive data on variations of cards (foil, etching, auto sig, game-used memorabilia, etc.), and value information. However, I was remiss in taking the same approach to my burgeoning comics collection.
I started collecting comics in August, 2013, and have amassed over 5,000 titles (floppies, graphic novels, hardcover collections, etc.). In November, 2013, I started building an Excel workbook to try and get a handle on what I had. Thus far, I have only been able to properly catalog less than 500 items from my collection.
I downloaded the trial version of Comic Collector Pro at 6:54PM local last night. After creating a new database and entering only 10 titles, I knew THIS was THE product for me. Around 10PM, I had gone "all-in". I purchased and fired up CLZ Barry on my Samsung Note Edge, installed Buddy for Barry on my quad-core beast and proceeded to stay up until almost 3AM working on my collection. The first 56 items (only references, art collections, and graphic novel collections from "Age of Ultron" through "Blackest Night...or roughly 2.5 shelves-worth) are in and I've probably hit "Submit to Core" over a dozen times. Not because the Comic Collector Pro database is short on info but because I have the TIME and EXCITEMENT to help the great folks at Collectorz.com improve their already outstanding product.
When compared to the software I use for my trading cards, I wish THAT offering was developed by Collectorz.com. If given a choice, I would much rather have the "Submit to Core" capabilities in that program versus the link it has to valuation data. (Now, if Comic Collector Pro was linked to, say, Overstreet for monetary worth information...I'd never leave my desk!)
Oh, yeah. I did say "I had gone 'all-in'." above. I took advantage of the "Heat Wave Offer" and purchased ALL of the Collector Pro offerings. You see, my family and I have over 400 game discs, just under 1,000 movie discs, at least 500 music discs, and well over 4,000 books. I'm glad I found Collectorz.com when I did.
YOU SHOULD BUY ALL OF THEIR PRODUCTS!!!!"

Well over 15,000 in my collection
"I’ve been collecting comics
since about 1978 and now have well over 15,000 in my collection, so being able to keep track of them (and in particular where I’ve stored any particular issue) is very important to me. In the past I’ve used two different free catalogue programs: the first was very basic and only stored minimal information: characters and creators and a few other things. Not even a cover image, and the search facility was virtually non-existent. The second one was a major improvement, and one aspect I particularly liked was that by simply clicking on a character’s name you got a list of all the books he appeared in. I used that program for several years, but unfortunately it wasn’t designed to handle a collection the size of mine, and as I added new books over time it ran slower and slower: at the end, opening the data file took literally twenty minutes and while adding a book was virtually instantaneous changing any of the details could take up to five minutes. In addition the developer had moved on to something else: while he still answered queries there weren’t going to be any upgrades. I knew I had to find something else.
I came across Comic Collector at the beginning of this year and was very happy with the trial version. But remembering the problems I’d had with the previous program, I wasn’t ready to pay the purchase cost until I was sure it could handle a collection the size of mine. I e-mailed a query and got a reply from Sytske almost by return, assuring me that it could. The speed of her response impressed me – I realised that this was a company that cared about its customers rather than taking their money and forgetting about them. My order went in straight away and I am totally satisfied. I am enjoying entering my comics manually – I prefer doing it that way as I can control the amount of data against each one. I currently have more than 10,300 entered and there has been no loss of performance. If you are new to comics or an experienced long-term collector, then this program is the answer to your dreams."

Thanks for a great App!
"Does 14,065 Comic Book's seem a lot? Nope! Thanks for a great App! It has worked tremendously in cataloging my collection!"
Erick Bryan (USA)
Catalog my comics
"This is the best purchase of software that I have made yet! Really love that I can catalog my comics
. I am enjoying learning about the software too!"
Paul PiJuan (USA)
Catalog my comics
"I love being able to catalog my comics
like this. I also want to say how really appreciative that I am. Anytime I have had a problem I get a really quick, easy and helpful response. I wish there was more people out there that took care of their customers like you guys do."

"I've been a paying customer of your service for two months now -- two of the best months of my 16-year comic-collecting career. I've tried to catalog my collection many times before, but until now, I've never been happy with how I did so."
Josh Marowitz (USA)
"I just wanted go give out kudos to a great comic database application
. I've been a pretty hard core
comic collector for over 25 years with many thousands of comics in my collection. For a long time I have been looking for some kind of tool that could easily help me catalog my collection. And you all have done it!
Your application is just what I needed. It's quick, easy and highly effective. My only regret is that I didn't have this application many years ago as I'm currently in the process of
cataloging my entire collection.
Thank you for such an awesome comic tool!"
Therron Harrell (USA)
LOVE your software
"I would first like to say that I LOVE your software and it has been the answer to all the problems I was having with cataloging my comics
Dave Baxter (USA)
Saved me a ton of work!
"Just wanted to give Collectorz.com a shoutout. I finally was able to catalog every
comic book in my collection
- over 5,000 counting some duplicates - and the sorting
and statistics features make it easy to organize
and possibly sell my collection.
I just finished getting my whole jumbled mess sorted, recorded, and reboxed
in publisher/title order, and when I found an issue I missed it was easy to find
where to slip it into place.
Awesome product, it saved me a ton of work!"
Ken McAndrew (USA)
It does what it says it does
"I shopped around before buying this program, and I'm pleased to report that it does what it says it does: it's an easy-to-use tool for cataloging your comics
For the most part, it does a super job with superheroes (pun intended) and mainstream books. I've had to manually enter some of my more unusual comics (and a lot of my Archies/Gold Keys, etc.), but nobody can be expected to have everything. And the customer service is VERY good through their forums.
I highly recommend this program."
Mike Mitchell (USA)
5,861 comics set and sorted

This software is AWESOME!"
Jason White (USA)
"I started using this last night to finally catalog my comics
! LOVE IT.
I'll be taking time off work to put them all into the database. I've been a collector since I was 8 so yeah looooooooooooooots of comics!"
Jason White (USA)
Loving the Comic software
"@collectorz I am loving the Comic software and scanner. Cannot find in the instructions how to catalog
without re-reading old issues ;-)"
@icreddy on Twitter
"Love this software! Makes cataloging my comics
I used to have a database where I manually entered everything in a spreadsheet. No longer.
The ability to add comics automatically AND have the cover images is AWESOME!"
Jesse Stewart (USA)
The right tool
"I bought the Comic book pro edition last night for my home laptop. I am so impressed with the software.
I have a sizable collection and have been looking for the right tool to catalogue
Not so much a fan of dry lists so being able to look at the covers and read the credits and synopsis is fantastic for me.
Well done for making such a great product at such a great price."
Completely blown away
"Your software is mind-blowing, it impressed me so much, I thought I'd take some time to compliment you on it. I have just become an avid comic book reader, and I'm absolutely loving it.
On the back cover of one of my books, I noticed an ad for a free comic book cataloging program. I thought "this would be a perfect way to keep up with my collection, especially since I'm just starting out." Well I downloaded it, and TRIED to use it. It was absolutely terrible. I couldn't figure out how to do anything, and it's main purpose was to get you to buy comics from their website.
Still intrigued by the idea of comic book managing software, I kept browsing and came across your free trial. I downloaded it, and within minutes, I was finding all of the comics I bought. I managed to buy $150 worth of comics in the first month I started collecting, and this software is genius.
I can record how much each comic was, where I purchased it, what condition it's in, and I'm completely blown away by how your website already has so much information on the books, even covers!
When my next payday arrived, I bought your software and I'll never use anything else. You guys are doing a fantastic job."
"Of course, it's true that I could've (and should've) cataloged my collection
a long, long time, ago. But it's such a daunting task that I had a hard time getting motivated to tackle it.
Once I found Collectorz.com, I was actually ENTHUSED about entering my collection. Besides that, I actually get kinda giddy just looking at my collection catalog, now. So, for better or for worse, this really brings out the comic book geek in me. As far as I'm concerned, that's a good thing."
Truly the best
"Truly the best for comics & magazines
I've tried a number of comic cataloging programs and this is the best for data entry, sorting and displaying, and searching. All fields are tallied when displayed, so you know exactly what is in your collection and in what issues. Program and data files are compact and fast. Documentation could be better, but it's easy to learn and support via email is quick.
The more you use it, the more you'll like it!"
In less then 5 minutes
"After visiting your site and reading the messages posted there I downloaded the trial version. In less then 5 minutes I had entered 100 issues. I was very impressed with the ease of entry and the ability to add virtually all relevant information about the books that I needed.
My collection is around 15,000 books. I am very happy that I have this software to make the process of cataloging that much easier."
