Love the desktop system
I just started putting my comics into the desktop system and I LOVE IT!!! My friends have harassed me for years on end to get this database because they use it and love it and now that I have it I don’t know why I waited so long to get it. — Rodney E. Dunwoody (USA) on Comic Collector

Cataloging with CLZ
5 yrs ago this was my entire collection, after proper bagging and boarding, I started cataloging with CLZ. I think I was around 1500 then. I'm jus a bit over 4k now, switching to short boxes and couldn't imagine not using CLZ.
Even tho I still seem to buy the occasional duplicate... lol — Chris Porter (USA) on Comic Collector

I am hooked
I'm excited for the new updates! I started using the Windows version for comics first and was hooked. It was way better than the spreadsheets I was using. Then I also used the web version and soon after, the app. I use all three still :)
I promote these whenever I can to my fellow comic collectors. — Robert Welch (USA) on Comic Collector

Thank you
I want to thank everyone at CLZ for their quick and friendly help whenever I had a question or problem. I specifically want to thank Sytske Hermans and Alwin Hoogerdijk for their help on January 4th and 5th.
I have completed the input of my collection into your great database software, almost 6000 individual issues with approximately a 1000 duplicates. This is something I have wanted to complete for several years. — Bruce Davenport (USA) on Comic Collector

I Discovered CLZ when i made a descision to start collecting comic books again. I had a small collection left from when i was a kid, it was something i did with my dad who passed away back in the early 2000's. After he died a big part of me was like "What's the point". Like many things at the time, it all kind of faded away.
So When i Made the Descision to collect again I Quickly realized i needed away to know what i already had. To This end, I found CLZ, it was affordable, and super easy to use, plus it was accessable on my phone which made it a great tool for when i hit the shops.
Then i realized I could also use it to Catlouge the Vinyl Records that got left to me. So now, I use it to catlouge both Comic and Vinyl collections, and in the process it helps me feel a bit closer to my father. — Kassidy Renault (USA) on Comic Collector

Comics Collector from Collectorz.com
I have been using the Comics Collector sw for about 10 years to increase my happiness and joy with my collection. I had always wanted to organise my collection so that all the relevant publisher, creator information and the covers would be easily located and sorted. An attemptt to create a spreadsheet that would do this for me gave me the pleasure of a deep dive into my collection and a severe back ache from sitting with my laptop on a broken sofa. I came accross Comics Collector and tried it out and it has been contributing greatly to my happiness ever since.
Sometime I put on the cover flow and just roam through my collection, each cover is a vivid moment that reminds me why I love comics. I have organised and re-organised my collection as I have changed my mind about what is the best way to group the comics. I can do this easily, the interfaces are clear and natural. Comics Collector has increased my pleasure in my comics collection hugely by capturing what I wanted to be able to do with careful attention to detail and first rate customer care. The updates are seamless, in fact they give a good name to software updates...
As I have been writing this I have been thinking about why Comic Collector is so good and I realised that it has been written for collectors, it makes capturing the many details about comics easy, showing off the covers easy, sorting and re sorting the collection easy. It is a brilliant tool that really allows me reach into the detail of my comics and relish them. — Conor Carton (USA) on Comic Collector

My collection under control and in numeric order
I've been using CLZ for my comics for 3 or 4 years now and had been doing things manually before that. My collection currently exceeds 18,000 books and I've been collecting for decades.
When I started collecting, I kept a hand written ledger of my books so I wouldn't spend my hard earned cash on duplicates. When Lotus 123 came on in '83 (does anyone actually remember Lotus 123?), I procured a copy and transferred my entire collection to a spreadsheet. Awesome. My first actual backup, besides my hand written book, was to a 5.25" disk.
After Lotus was crushed by Microsoft, everything had to go to Excel. I believe that most everyone has a horror story regarding hardware and mine was a crashed hard drive in '96 that ate my data and left me with just a 3.5" disk that contained the backup of my comic collection. Needless to say, the disk turned out to have been corrupted at some point and I was back to ground zero.
With all of the writing and keyboarding over the years, I'm pretty sure I'm patient #0 for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. It was then I decided the Comic Books gods did not want me to know what I had in my collection so that Marvel, DC, Charlton, and the rest could get more of my hard earned cash since I'd likely be buying duplicates at one point or another.
It wasn't until I found CLZ 3 or 4 years ago that I started to catalog my collection again. This has done many things:
It uncovered more than 3,000 duplicates (hard earned cash out the window. My ex-wife was angry about that tidbit).
It allowed me to actually get my collection under control and in numeric order in their boxes (currently 170+ short boxes and a couple of long boxes
The initial time of entering them into CLZ was considerable, but necessary. Now when I buy 2 or 300 books at a show, it's so easy to get them into the system.
It allows me to travel to Comic-cons and bring my collection with me so when I'm spending my hard earned dollars, I'm not buying dupes. (something my current wife appreciates)
I finally know exactly what I have and I know it's safe from most any tech disaster that I might have.
Most important in all of this? It provides a safe place for my database. Something I didn't have for 40 years.
I forget what I paid for this program when I bought it, but it's been worth every penny of my hard earned dollars since. — James White (USA) on Comic Collector
