Comic Collector (Windows)

v23.1: Two improvements to the CovrPrice integration

October 24th, 2022

Version 23.1 of of your Comic Collector software is now available for download. Based on your feedback and questions, we have made 2 big improvements to the CovrPrice integration, that is, to the way values are displayed in your software:

  • Improved value displaying for My Value entries
  • CovrPrice value box now also visible when CP value is 0

IMPORTANT: IMPORTANT: for the displaying of the CovrPrice links, the software now downloads “CovrPrice IDs” for all entries. This means that after your first Update Values action with v23.1, it will modify almost ALL your entries, causing a HUGE amount of changes when Syncing to the CLZ Cloud the next time!
TIP: before Updating Values for the 1st time with this version, switch OFF Auto-Syncing, then Update Values, then Sync with CLZ Cloud MANUALLY. This is much more efficient than letting it auto-sync. When done, feel free to switch ON the AutoSync again.

20th or 22nd anniversary: Team CLZ in Paris

October 4th, 2022

As promised some photos of our 20th anniversary trip to Paris that we took on the 22nd anniversary because of reasons 🙂

We did a lot of walking, eating, drinking, and generally having loads of FUN!

Day 1: Travel, 2CV tour, walking around and a big river boat dinner

We got up real early and grabbed a high speed train from Amsterdam to Paris:

In Paris we met up with our tour guide and we drove around the city in old Citroën Deux Chevaux cars, after which we had lunch and walked about the city a bit.


We see you Eiffel tower! We will be visiting you soon too!

Did you know they love collecting in Paris too?

After that, we enjoyed some free time on our own, and finished the day with dinner on a big river cruise boat, right under the Eiffel tower.

Day 2: Guided tour of the city, Eiffel Tower, Tuk-Tuk and Buddha Bar

After a great breakfast of croissants and pastries, we walked around the city on a guided tour with lots of interesting tidbits of information about the history of Paris.

And of course an LCS (“Local” comicbook store) had to be visited!

We then stopped briefly for a great lunch, with a glass of wine. Or two glasses. Salmon and mashed sweet potatoes:

Then, we headed over to the Eiffel tower to visit… all the way to the top!

Lots of influencing going on here.

Under the Eiffel tower

And now, to the top! It takes 2 elevator rides to get all the way to the top and the view is amazing!

They even serve beer half way up the Eiffel tower:

After that we “tuk-tukked” our way back to the hotel. A great (and FUN) way to sneak right through traffic and get somewhere quickly during Paris’ constant rush hour

Catching up and having a couple of pre-dinner drinks at the hotel before leaving for the evening program:

That night, we enjoyed amazing dinner and drinks in the Buddha Bar, they even themed the menu to our CLZ 20 Years logo!



Day 3: Walks, “Canard & Champagne”, influencing and more!

Near our hotel is where our walk started, going past these zebra columns, a place much coveted by influencers:

Here’s Rowdy, listening to our tour guide (who is not in the picture)

And here’s Rowdy, listening to our tour guide (who is in the picture)

And here’s Rowdy, the influenced becomes the influencer:

One of Paris’ oldest book stores:

We then had lunch at “Canard & Champagne” where they serve… canard (duck), and champagne!

Started with an egg:

And the very tasty duck and delicious champagne followed:

Martin followed lunch up with some influencing:

Some macarons were bought somewhere in LaFayette shopping mall:

And finally, just before leaving Paris to train back to Amsterdam, Stijn played the piano a bit at Gare du Nord train station:

CLZ / CovrPrice FAQ

August 12th, 2022

Let me try to answer the most common questions about the upcoming partnership between CLZ and CovrPrice (CP):

Q: To get comic values in my CLZ app/software, do I need a subscription to CovrPrice?
A: Yes, that is correct.
To get access to the comic values from CovrPrice, you will need a subscription to the CovrPrice “UNLIMITED” plan, which is US $6.95 per month or US $60 per year.
You will also need an active subscription to your CLZ app or software. A grandfathered account will not suffice.

Q: So does this mean I need to use two different sites or apps?
A: No, that is not necessary, you will get the comic values *inside* your CLZ app/software. You do not need to go to the CovrPrice site to see the values.
However, because of the CovrPrice subscription, you *will* have access to the all functionality of the CovrPrice site, like seeing values for all grades for raw and slabbed, checking on value trends, looking up the actual sales a value is based on, etc…
