about Comic Collector
User friendly"First I would like to say I love the Comic Collectorz software. I have a large collection and the software is user friendly and has a beautiful design."
May 18, 2013
Amazing!"I just wanted to say how amazing this is! I also have the app for my phone. I have been looking for something like this for years. The amount of work that went into this just blows me away. "
April 29, 2013
Wonder how I ever functioned without it."After losing too many comics over the course of five decades, I decided to start collecting again. I wanted to be able to keep track of what I have, so I purchased the Comic Collector software last month, and wonder how I ever functioned without it.
I am a disabled veteran, and am missing several fingers. It makes for very slow typing sometimes. The bar code scanner support was/is the best thing for me. Now I can load over 100 comics per hour into my database. Trying to type them in was frustrating and slow.
You have a lifelong customer."
April 23, 2013
AWESOME"I've uploaded my collection and already have it downloaded to my iPad...AWESOME!!! This is so helpful when walking a comic convention for deals."
March 21, 2013
The best"My wife purchased me the comic collector software and a C37 scanner for my birthday last september. I absolutely love it, and think it is the best collection software hands down.
However I left my scanner out one day and our new dog decided that it looked like a tasty snack."
February 24, 2013
My entire collection in hand"I love mine, I have it synced to both my iphone and my ipad. It was the best investment I ever made.
I can now go to the store with my entire collection in hand and never worry about a duplicate."
February 20, 2013
My collection"833 comics until I reach 15,000 unique (not doubled) comic books in my collection."
February 19, 2013
Compliment"I couldn't find another way to send you guys and gal a compliment on the software and app for my iPhone. I have cataloged over 12k comics and the ap for my phone comes in quite handy when looking to pick up missing books."
February 18, 2013
Awesome software"I bought the Comic Collector last week and I am half way filing my collection, I just want to say thank you on having awesome software and the Catscanner is a lifesaver!!!!!!!!!!!"
February 13, 2013
Thrilled"Btw, I was thrilled when you added the in app barcode scanning and the ability to sync collections among all devices using the connect feature. It makes things so much easier, especially for my large comic book collection.
I have been using various collectorz programs for years and have never been happier with them as i am now."
January 31, 2013
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!"
December 22, 2012
10,600th comic in collectorz"Just added Catwoman 14 as my 10,600th comic in collectorz.
I still need to add a lot of comic books that are not in the database yet!"
December 07, 2012
I couldn't be happier"I wanted to take the time to send you all an email, first stating that I absolutely love what you guys have done and are doing with the software.
I couldn't be happier and the software is the best thing I've ever taken advantage of to keep my comic collection in check."
October 15, 2012
So much more fun"I've been using your comic collecting software for about a week now. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
Seriously. It makes comic book collecting so much more fun and alot easier. You guys have a great thing going here.
Keep it up!!!"
September 18, 2012
Haven't stopped"Well I ordered the Comic Book version on Tuesday of last week and received it on Thursday of the same week.(AWESOME!!!!) I installed it and was pretty easy to do.
I bought it for my husband's collection. I am guessing he has over 5,000 comic books. I started scanning this weekend and haven't stopped.
THIS SOFTWARE IS GOLD!!!!! My husband loves it, and so do I. I've been doing all the scanning. I 'm not sure if you do this already, but if you don't you should sell this software in comic book stores and at comic book conventions.
I'll keep you posted on what his final count is. I'm curious myself.
THANK YOU !!!!!!! : ))"

Hit a comic shop"ahhhh! *kicks feet and laughs* omg! i love my Comic Collectorz program!
it just told me that out of my collection of 1,718 comics 59% are DC, 30% Marvel, and 12% other. Also that my biggest line is Wolverine Vol.2 with 194 issues, which beats out my Robin Vol.2 by only 3 issues!
So cool... *giggles* oh this girl wants to hit a comic shop so bad right now!"
August 30, 2012
Hunting down gaps"Awesome, love the product. It helps when hunting down gaps having the collection on my iPhone when I'm shopping and also I love looking at covers."
August 30, 2012
A really great product."I haven't worked on my comic book database in over a year, however this is/was my software of choice. With the ability to sync your collection online it continues to raise the bar on features and ease of use.
This is a really great product."
August 17, 2012
5 Star all around"Purchased the Movie, Music, and Comic Book programs. 5 Star all around."
August 06, 2012
It's fantastic"I'm a few hours into your software and it's fantastic! Sadly going through my umpteen thousand comics is the only saddening part :)"
July 29, 2012
Great job guys!!"I only have about half my collection in the Pro version, but couldn't wait any longer...treated myself to an early Father's Day present and got the Android app.
Looks fantastic on my Galaxy tablet...doing my HTC Evo phone now...
Great job guys!!"
June 13, 2012
Definitely impressive"My girlfriend recently bought me the Comic Collector software, just wanted to say
thanks for creating such an awesome product!

Wish"Picked up the Comic Book DB wish I had it years ago."
May 30, 2012
Super great product"I can't say enough about how great your software is.
I've tried so many others & uninstalled them after logging only a few books. Yours was so simple & easy to use, & has all the features i was looking for. I spent hours logging in books, not hours learning how.
Super great product, very happy."
May 25, 2012
Awesome product"I just wanted to thank you guys for this awesome product.
I have been using it for about a year, but yesterday it really paid for its self. Yesterday was comic-con here in Spokane and loved having my needed list not only available on my android phone but i loved how easy it was to print out the list when I needed it.
Thank you guys keep up the hard work!"
May 20, 2012
Awesome"The upgrade for the Pro Edition was awesome for my 2,421 comics and 300 movies!
This is by far the best and easiest way I have ever had my stuff organized.
Your program is great!"
May 09, 2012
Thank You"I just wanted to drop you a line and say Thank you. I am so impressed with the software. I have 25,000 comics in my collection (dating as far back as 1933), and have only had to search for a few covers to date.
Earlier to I restored the settings on my computer (or so I thought) and ended up loosing not only all of my recent emails but a few other pieces of software.
I can not express enough how impressed I was with your service when it came to retrieving my lost key codes. It took less then a minute .... and now I am back up and running.
Keep up the great work !
Great service and reliability are a rare commodity these days."
May 04, 2012
All I have to do"I enjoy your software... my comic collection is complete and now all I have to do is just add whatever new comics I get from here on."
April 25, 2012
Just saying thanks"Today was a pretty lame day for me, until I got home and went to open my Comic Collector and saw an update! I've been impatiently waiting for an update to come along for the searches and can't tell you how happy I am that y'all finally were able to get around to it.
Sadly as it may sound, this definitely made my day. Just wanted to send a message and say thanks for the work that y'all do, it really helps collecting my comics so much easier to keep up with. No problems here, just saying thanks."
April 18, 2012
5,326. comic books"Just wanted you to know I just finished entering 5,326. comic books using your data base. It is great!!!!
It saved me so much stress on how to list the comic books so I would know what my son had collected while he was here. I have passed your site on to friends who might want to list their books etc. "
April 11, 2012
Excellent customer support"I wanted to write you and thank you for your excellent customer support and additionally, the excellent product that Collectorz for comics is in the Mac environment.
As the 'connect' subscription is now free, I worry that I no longer have a way to support your excellent product other than through the initial purchase. Please let me know if there is some other way I can support this endeavor and as such maintain it through perpetuity.
Thanks again, a very satisfied customer."
March 24, 2012
Value for money"I honestly don't believe how I tried to inventory my comics on my own before
I bought Comic Collector. Outstanding value for the money."
March 17, 2012
Um...WOW"Hi all, I just downloaded Comic Collector for my Android phone. Um...WOW.
I read the info page on your site and it sounded good there, but after I started flipping thru it on the phone...oh MAN.
I honestly don't believe how I tried to inventory my comics on my own before I bought Comic Collector.
Outstanding value for the money.
I am going to a con this weekend and I am more prepared than ever! I could spend hours just looking at the covers...and the ease of reviewing wish list items - nice!
Thanks for a great app!"
February 28, 2012
In short I just love it!!"After messing around with it for a couple of hours, and loading up a couple of thousand comics, I can say it is FANTASTIC.
I got the iphone app and that is just GREAT. I am now up to listing over 10,000 comics and I like it more each time I use it.
In short I just love it!!"
February 06, 2012
I LOVE IT"FIRST THING FIRST!!!!! Your Comic Book Collecting software IS AWESOME!!
I LOVE IT. Really helps me organize my collection.
I really like the format of your software."
January 30, 2012
Thank you!"Just paid for and down loaded the pro s/w...just waiting on my barcode scanner and i will get started next week. THANK YOU..!
Typing all of these comics into excel was going to be a daunting task..."
January 27, 2012
No more duplicates"Just got my Comic Collector program and finished uploading well over 2,000 issues...and only 2 couldn't be found. not too shabby, Collectorz!!!
No more duplicates for this guy!!!"
January 16, 2012
Awesome product"Just wanted to say thanks again for all your help and the awesome product your group puts out.
I have used other "free" online databases for my comic collection, which is well over 3,000+ issues, and was not satisfied with having to put and input information only to have lack luster results. But I found your site and was hesitant at first but finally made the purchase and have not regretted it.
Your database, the features offered, and your customer service are amazing and combined with your collector app I never have to worry about buying another double issue again.
So thank you and keep up the great work."
January 11, 2012
Works perfect"Love the Android app on my Kindle Fire for Comic edition. Works perfect with my desktop version.
January 01, 2012
Collecting comics for years"So I've been collecting comics for years and finally purchased ComicCollectorz for PC about 4 - 6 months ago, and its been great!
I love it! "
December 07, 2011
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."
December 06, 2011
Absolutely lost without them"I just wanted to show off my comic collection to you guys! I use the Connect website function, and the full software version too!
I'd be absolutely lost without them! :)"
November 15, 2011
Thoroughly impressed"Today I downloaded the update for Comic Collector for Mac, and I was thoroughly impressed with the fully functional program.
I synced my computer's data with my Connect data, and everything went without a hitch. Now, all 13,000+ comics are together in, well, two places.
Thanks so much!"
October 04, 2011
Best comic software out there"Add me to the satisfied group.
I've had Comic Collector since version 2 (it's now at 5) and only had minor issues that were ALL fixed. I live in Canada and the software guys in Europe and there has never been anything but a minimal delay in responses and that's reasonable to expect given the time differences.
Best comic software out there."
September 18, 2011
Sweet"Just starting to use Comic Collector, I'm 4 boxes down only 40 more to go. Sweet. I can't believe how excited I am just mucking around with folder options. Boom!"
September 09, 2011
I was blown away!"So I'm sitting there entering some new Spider-man comics into my Excel 2000 spread sheet on my 1995 desk top PC when it dawned on me... I have one more reason to get a new up to date laptop and the internet at home.
2 weeks of research and $600 later i'm up and running. The first thing I Googled is comic book inventory programs; I was blown away! I am soooo in the dark ages; duh they have awesome programs out there! Yours really caught my eye, I downloaded the trial verson and KAPOW! I'm a true collector. I only have like 2,000 comics and they are all Spider-man but your program blows me away!
Thanks again guys!"
September 09, 2011

Greatest thing I've purchased"Seriously, this has been the greatest thing I've purchased since my comics! I just wanted you people to know I think this software is great and even I figured out how to use it!"
September 07, 2011
Impressed"Just bought Comic Collector Pro and am impressed so far.
But what really impresses me is the responsiveness I see here on this page. I feel VERY good about my purchase!"
September 02, 2011
I'm excited"Just got Comic Collector. I'm excited, I have hours of work ahead of me!
My wife...not so much."
September 01, 2011
LOVE IT"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!"
August 23, 2011
Well worth it!!"I just added a couple of hundred comics into an easily organized, searchable and information-rich database in just over 20 minutes! Well worth it!!"
August 12, 2011
UNDYING LOVE"I just wanna express my UNDYING LOVE for the comic collector for Mac as well as the iPhone app!
I went to comic con and while every other person had a notebook (the paper not the computer) or a binder full of comics they needed, i was the only one that used my app to search for comics! it was AWESOME!!
i even promoted you guys cuz everyone was asking me what it was! U might get some new customers soon!
THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!!"
July 28, 2011
Couldn't have been easier!"Just finished entering my 6,000 books from my collection into Comic Collector. Couldn't have been easier!
Extremely pleased with your product!"
July 23, 2011
In my pocket"Getting ready to go to Comic Con in San Diego. I just downloaded the I-pod comics app and it synced up perfectly with my desktop software. It did this over WiFi. Now I have my whole collection in my pocket and won't purchase any duplicate issues.
Thanks to Collectorz software I'm going to have a great Comic Con."
July 21, 2011
Everything I wanted and more"I'm loving the Comic Collectorz. It's everything I wanted in a database and more.
I'm logging in all my comics into this. So far, I've logged 2,407 comics/graphic novels/TPBs."
July 20, 2011
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 ;-)"
June 28, 2011
Well worth the $30 I paid!"I have been looking for a good database program for my comic collection for a few years now. There were not many options for Mac, and the one that looked the most promising, was much to expensive. There was Comic Collector from Collectorz, but it was only available for Windows. When Collectorz first announced they were working on a Mac version about a year ago, I was very excited.
Finally last week, they released version 1 for Mac. After a few hiccups with build 1 and 2, build 3 has finally got things working and I have started adding my collection into my database. From what I have seen so far, it is well worth the $30 I paid! Once I have added most of my comics to my database, and had some time to play with it more, I will probably be paying the extra for the Pro edition and also getting the iPhone edition so I can take my collection with me."
May 25, 2011
Amazing software"Having ordered the Opticon scanner to my cousin's place in US (since Collectorz doesnt ship to my country) and then asking her to hand carry the device when she visits. After 2 months she brought the cute scanner to me and i'm using the scanner along with my Comic Collector for the 1st time.
Entered a long box of 340 comics in my collectorz database in 8 mins. Amazing software and excellent scanner. Worth all the wait and the money!
Excellent work guys! Comic Collector v5 is the way to go!!"
May 05, 2011
Worth its weight in gold!!"Recently bought Comic Collector. It's fantastic.
Already have almost 2,000 books cataloged. Worth its weight in gold!!"
April 21, 2011
It's a fantastic tool"I've been using Comic Collector since 2008 because my collection was getting unmanageable.
It's a fantastic tool and the upgrades have always added new and useful tools making the functionality better. I recently upgraded to Comic Collector Pro 5.0 and again I'm impressed by the improvements. I especially like the improved statistics section.
April 08, 2011
The best version so far"I've spent the last hour or so adding comics to version 5, both manually and automatically and I've gotta say I'm REALLY loving the new version.
The new layout for the Add Comic window seems to flow a lot more smoothly IMO, with the new order of various fields in more logical places.
The new Vee Five templates are great, I really appreciate their clearer, cleaner appearance. As for Add Comics Automatically, the tree list makes things a lot easier to find the issues I'm after.
This is by far the best version of Comic Collector so far."
February 18, 2011
Amazingly wonderful program"So far I am enjoying version 5. I like the new add comics screen, it makes adding issues a lot easier when adding multiple titles with similar names.
I am also enjoying the wish list section, I need to work on it so it can be up to date on CLZ on my phone.
I just want to say Thank You to everyone at Collectorz for all your hard work on this amazingly wonderful program. This program has helped me so much with making my list and now you keep improving it with CLZ so I can always have my list with me and now the addition of scanning the bar code and Diamond Previews info.
Keep up the great work."
February 18, 2011
AMAZINGLY!"First off, I just want to say that I recently came back from the first ever Comic-Con in New Orleans, and you're iphone app helped me AMAZINGLY!
I was able to quickly pull up the list of my comics while browsing through stacks of comics and was able to find issues I didn't have without worrying about getting extra copies. Meanwhile, I laughed as other people were writing down issues on paper and trying to figure out what they had and didn't have. I even told people about this site and how easy it is to use and your iphone app.
Keep up the great work though guys and gals. Really love your stuff and look to be upgrading my
comic collector software soon. I always get excited when I get an email from you guys, because it's not too often and it's always awesome news.
February 02, 2011
SO EASY"Love this software! Makes cataloging my comics SO EASY.
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!"
July 11, 2010
Comic Collector Rocks!"As an IT administrator and computer hobbyist, I've tested and utilized countless programs and I can say without hestitation that Comic Collector is one of the very best applications I've ever used.
It's extraordinarily powerful, customizable, and easy to use.
As a DBA I've worked with many relational databases and Comic Collector represents the very best of what a well-designed database can achieve. It is both elegant and flexible.
The online repository of comics is very comprehensible - I've found entries for every one of the 1000+ comics I've inputted thus far.
I especially like the HTML export feature - I'm able to generate web interfaces for any dataset and, if appropriate, link entries to digital comic files. For example, I can create a website for my daughter, which she can use to easily select and read her favorite comics.
Your product has greatly increased my enjoyment of a hobby that I was already very passionate about. In short, Comic Collector rocks!"
May 20, 2010
Top Notch Software"Downloaded it, tried it, loved it, bought it. Absolute top notch software for any collector. I purchased Comic Collector and would recommend it to anyone."
May 10, 2010
So Quickly"I have just started entering all my comic books into the Comic Book software and I am impressed with the info already entered.
I figured I would have to spend WEEKS entering them all in, but it is going so quickly!
May 01, 2010
I Freaking Love It!"Just want to say that I purchased your Comic Collector software last weekend and I gotta say that I freaking love it!
I've tried similar products before and was depleased with all of them. Keep up the great work!"
April 18, 2010
Excellent Software"Love, Love, Love this software!
I have cataloged 1,000 comics in just over 6 hours! Now I am moving onto the bulk of my archived collection (almost 6,500 comics) and can't wait to get started.
The iTouch / iPhone app is awesome as well. I love being able to retrieve my collection info at a touch!
Excellent software... highly recommended for anyone! "
April 11, 2010
The Icing on the Cake"I've been using Comic Collector for a few years now and think it's a terrific program.
I have over 8,000 comics/ trades/ hardcovers in my collection and it's the best way, hands down, for cataloguing a collection of that size.
I used to use a word document that I had to painstakingly update every week. With Comic Collector the inputting is so easy, and fun to do. The export to i-pod touch is just the icing on the cake.
Thanks again, you guys have put out an amazing product with the highest level of customer support."
April 07, 2010
It Is Great!"hey guys, just started using Comic Collectorz and it is great!
Best comic database program out there. Thanks so much!"

BEST"BEST Comic collector I have ever used and the BEST support you could ask for."
March 30, 2010
It Helps Me Keep Track"I used Comic Collector and Clz Comic app for my iTouch.
I love it. It helps me keep track and prevents me from buying duplicates unless I want them."
March 30, 2010
Easy To Use" I've been using Comic Collector for 5 years and have catalogued my 7,167 item collection (until it gets bigger again on Thursday!)
I find it easy to use and regularly contribute entries to the database."
March 29, 2010
Really Fun"Long-time user of Comic Collectorz and just DL'd Comic Collectorz Pro and the iPod application.
Synchronization was a snap. It's really fun to browse my collection on the iPod and the next time I'm at the comic shop I'll know what I already own. "
March 27, 2010
Absolutely amazing"Can I take the opportunity to complement you on the software.
I had previously used some rather rough homemade systems and a new computer meant I needed to look around for something else.
I have to say your software is absolutely amazing. The range of features and ease of use is such that this is probably the best piece of personal software I have used and the ability to download a huge amount of information so easily is absolutely fantastic."
December 03, 2009
Immense Time Savings"I love Comic Collector Pro so far.
I had been using my own Access database and your product saves an immense amount of time with its pre-loaded information.
I'm in the process of entering my collection of appx. 50,000 comics into Comic Collector (about 3,000 loaded thus far). I have also bought the companion app for my iPhone, which I love!
I've been manually exporting to Excel and loading onto a PDA, but this is another immense time savings for me."
September 09, 2009
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 it.
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."
August 14, 2009
Great deal of fun"This program has been a humongous time-saver for me.
I have six children at home and it is difficult enough making time to read my comics, let alone inventory them. Collectorz.com has made the task of inventorying my books not only quick, but a great deal of fun."
May 27, 2009
Great program"Hello to everyone at Collectorz; first off I would like to say that I really glad that a site like you exist, I'm a comic book fan and I 100% LOVE the Comic Collectors program I have running on my computer.
I get excited every time I get home with new comic books; read them, and then open the program and start adding them to the list!
You guys truly do have a great program with Comic Collector; honestly, I don't know how I've been calling myself as comic fan without it.
And I am really glad to hear that great mind think alike as far as you guys working on a Collectorz version for the Iphone. I can't wait to till it's ready!"

A must have"I really love your product. I spent about two weeks every night entering my comics into the system.
Keep up the great work. I don't actually buy many products, I seek out free alternatives but your application was a must have."

I'm having a blast"There was a web-site that "reviewed" three of the most popular comic collection software. They gave yours an overall 2.5 stars and Comic Base 4.5 stars.
Naturally, I downloaded the trial for the Comic Base. I used it for about 2 minutes and REMOVED the trial program from my computer. What a piece of s*~t! I guess the guy reviewing owns stock in Comic Base.
Maybe I didn't know how to use it but I approached both Comic Base and Collectorz the same; no idea how to use either and was completely impartial. Collectorz was a breeze to pick up and Comic Base could make a sober person drink themselves into debt.
Outstanding product... I'm having a blast. This is the first time in 25 years, that I can actually know (and find) what I have in my collection! I LOVE this program!"

MOST FUN!!!"I've tried many of the more popular brands out there (demos) and feel that yours best suits my needs.
It is by far the easiest to use, and MOST FUN!!! ...which is probably the most important aspect, not just an oversimplified spreadsheet of misc. data."

First-rate"I must say I'm very impressed with this program. Its simplicity and organization are first-rate. :)"

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. "

Brilliant"I found your site because I was looking for a comic database to sort my collection - currently around 8,700 - and ended up realising I needed the Music and Movie ones as well. I'd probably get the Books one as well but I've got so many DVDs to put in now that I've finally got round to properly starting on them, that I might not live long enough to get round to the books!!
Movie Collector has all the fields needed for Audio Adventures since they're basically films without pictures and, since I've now taken the program to the DVDs by putting that one on my laptop, is in the right place.
New Releases and Updates services are a brilliant addition which shows just how much you understand the people you're selling to. This will make it far easier to keep up to date because I don't have to take the comics to the computer or search every title individually. "

Outstanding"This software is outstanding.
Inventorying 20 years of my son's comic book collection, 10,00's of books and growing, is so much easier and helps for insurance purposes in valuing what is there.
So easy"Just had to tell you all a huge thanks. Back in October I had a major system crash. I was able to backup the information but it never occured to me to backup the thumbnails. Well, I took a seven month break cause couldnt face the idea of doing all that input again.
Well, today I decided to get on it. Using the faq's I was up and going withing 10min.
Reason for writing this. Thank you ever so much for this software. Replacing the cover pictures has been so easy. Its taken me about 2hrs to do over 1700 books.
Just wanted to say thanks for taking care of us that dont always do the best thing with the software!"
This product is awesome"Please know how much I enjoy this program.
My wife gave it to me as a Father's Day gift two years ago and I love everything about it.
This product is awesome and more people should know about it."
Worth every penny!"I couldn't be happier with this program. The deeper I dig into it, the more I discover the depth and customizable aspects of it.
Being able to see the list of all my comics, with thumbnails of the front covers is absolutely invaluable to me... then I discovered that I could export my list into HTML format! This will be a welcome edition to posting my comics on a website!
Thanks guys! This has been worth every penny!"
Actually ENTHUSED"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."
Just 100% excellent"I would like to say that I am so happy about the Comic Collectorz program I bought from you guys I can't wait to get home from work and sit and play on it for hours just organizing my comic, the software is just 100% excellent!
I showed the program and the comic I currently had on it to my brother and he was blown away, after I showed him he went to see how many comics he had off the top of his head and said thats the next purchase on his list!
P.S I have a pretty big cd collection so the music collector is next on my list!"
WOW"I just downloaded the comic book collector from download.com and all I can say is "WOW" very impressive. I plan to buy this product, its easier then the excel spread sheet I made up. All I have to do is type the name of the comic and the program does the rest! How easy is that?
Bravo Zulu, on a job, or in this case a product well done!"
The software is awesome"You guys are the best!
I am a professional comic book writer myself and have written for Marvel, D.C., Disney and more. See my Website."
So awesome"This program is so awesome. I've been looking for something like this for years. Thanks for making it. I think ima buy it for myself for my birthday this week :)"
I now know what I have"I have really enjoyed the program. It is by far the easiest comic database to use and quickly populate - I tried four different programs before deciding on Comic Collector. It has really helped me get my collection organized. I now know what I have (and what I am missing!).
The export to i-Pod feature is incredibly useful as well, since I can take a complete list of what I have and what I am looking for in a compact format instead of a big paper binder.
I'm at about 3400 comics and still have several boxes to go, but there is no way I could have done such a precise inventory without Comic Collector."
I love your programs"I'd like to say that I love your programs, I have had your comic collector program for 3 or 4 years now and it really helps me keep track of things. And the new profile download feature is amazing."
Can't stop raving about it"A good friend of mine is a comic book nut and has a huge collection. He had been using some other older db that is no longer supported - and he lost the program and all his data in a hd crash.
I immediately bought a copy of Comic Collector for him and he immediately fell in love with it and can't stop raving about it. "
It's going to make my life happier"I really made my decision the time I opened the program: I'm going to buy it. It's a huge step from my excel lists to this, for a person so mad about my collection like me, I'm sure the Comic Collector it's going to make my life happier :-)
And thank you very much for your support, I think It is something very important for the success of a software product to have a Support Department so fast and efficient like yours."
