Comic Collector (macOS)

v18.2.1: Secure HTTPS connections / more sync fields

May 29th, 2018

A BIG update for your Comic Collector software today, with two important changes:

1. Secure HTTPS connections, for your security and privacy

As indicated in last week’s GDPR email, we are updating our software and services, to be more secure and to better protect your privacy.

Starting with version 18.2, Comic Collector now uses secure HTTPS connections for all communications with our servers:

  • for logging in with your username and password
  • for syncing your data with CLZ Cloud
  • for sending your searches to Core.

To make this possible, we have created new secure “entry points” on our servers, that are only allowing secure HTTPS connections. The new Comic Collector software only communicates with those secure entry points.

For your privacy and security, we strongly recommend updating to version 18.2.

2. More sync fields

Last week, our CLZ Cloud (and Comic Connect) has been updated with 9 more fields and loan information. Today’s version 18.2 now supports the syncing of all these new fields and your loan information to and from the CLZ Cloud!

Added for syncing:

  • Crossover
  • Imprint
  • Story Arc
  • Age
  • Edition
  • Cover Price
  • Cover Date
  • Release Date
  • Loans

Heads up: after updating to version 18.2, the software will automatically mark most of your comics as “changed”, to force the upload of your data for the new fields to the CLZ Cloud.

BTW: Updates for the CLZ Comics mobile apps are coming up soon, so that you can fully sync the above new fields from desktop to mobile and vice versa.


  • A crash could occur in the “Frequency” manage pick list field.
  • Grouping on “Series First Letter” would sometimes not show all series.

GeekExchange.com reviewed Comic Connect, our online cataloging tool.

“The long and short of it, my fellow geeks, this is a MUST HAVE for big time collectors! It’s beautifully done and simple to use.”
