New Comic Book Day, week 25: 617 new releases!

June 19th, 2024

Captain’s Log, Stardate 2024, June 19th. We have encountered 617 new releases with 296 actual new unique issues.

In issue #21 of Star Trek (IDW Publishing) we see how Captain Sisko and his crew visit the Pleroma to meet with god-level species and make small talk about things like the fate of the universe and such.

Over at Earth we see how one of G.I. Joe’s most greatest villains – Destro – stars in his own series; the imaginatively named Destro, while somewhere in the darkness of space and time we witness how the Venomverse is reborn, in the venom-enal new series Venomverse Reborn.

The CLZ content team (Rowdy, Justin and Taco) have just finished adding and updating all these new releases in our Core online comic database, complete with cover images, cover artists, variant descriptions, etc…. All you need to do is open your Add Comics screen and start scanning barcodes.
Or, to see all new releases in one place, use the “Pull List” tab of the Add Comics screen (the tab on the far right).

v9.2.2: A couple of fixes

May 22nd, 2024

Fixed:

  • Side menu now goes “over” the list and doesn’t “squash” the list anymore
  • In some cases an invisible filter could hide some comics

After using the “Update Values” tool from the menu, to update the values from CovrPrice, the apps shows you a report of which values have change and by how much. For today’s v9.2 update, we re-designed this report and added some new features:

  • Tap a comic to pop up a screen with the full comic details
  • Now sort your list by the Value Change or by the Value itself
  • Filter the list by Collection Status, e.g. to show In Collection comics only
  • The list now includes Variant Descriptions!
  • Finally: a completely redesign of the list entries to make it more readable

v9.1.2: Faster barcode scanner!

April 3rd, 2024

Adding comics by barcode is one the main features app and an essential part of that is the camera barcode scanner.

For this update, our mobile app developer Pim has spent a few days optimizing that camera barcode scanner. The idea was to make better use of the power of today’s devices, both in cameras and computing power.

And the results of his tweaks are amazing. The scanner is now much faster!

The difference in scanning speed will be especially noticable when scanning the longer barcodes seen on modern comics, with a 2 digit or 5 digit extension. Correctly scanning that extension is essential for identifying the exact issue and variant.

We would love to hear how the new scanner works out for you, please let us know in this Club CLZ post here!
