List of Comics Entered Into the MCP?

Post by wolverine7230 » Thu Nov 12, 2015 11:08 am

Hi Again!

As I was researching all of the various Marvel Digital Comics, I had a thought, and that thought was: Is there a list of comics that have been entered into the MCP?

Many Thanks,

wolverine

Russ *might* have a list, or be able to generate one via export from the backend of the search function*, but I'm pretty sure there's no existing publicly available list [well, doing it the long way notwithstanding].

*Although a list from the search function may include [square bracketed] issues - i.e., ones where a few characters have an appearance entered via reference from the Official Index or similar ("...next in AB:YZ 23"), but the issue as a whole hasn't been analysed.

OK, Thanks.

If I do end up using the search function (which I haven't used before), how would I use it to create this list?

Many Thanks,

wolverine

You can't - that's what I meant by "from the backend", i.e., with private database access. The note was just as a caveat for why he might not be able to.

Ah, ok, now I understand.

If you were wondering I was asking, I'm trying to compile a complete list of comics published by Marvel. If/when I complete it, should I post it here, so you guys can look over it see if there's anything listed that isn't in the MCP?

Many Thanks!

Thanks for that!

I also found something similar on comicbookdb.

I suspect that list would be too long to be of much practical use.

Fair enough, but I guess you wouldn't literally be reading through it, would you?

Yes, I would.

I think that counts as "asking for it", Russ :)

I just said it would not be of any practical use. I never said I wouldn't read it. I've seen lists of every Marvel comic. They're mind-numbingly long.

Might I ask where you've seen them? It would be interesting to see how they've done it. Thanks

I am aware of those pages, and have them on my list of pages to look at, but I've started with this page from comicbookdb which I believe is more up-to-date and missing less series: http://www.comicbookdb.com/publisher.php?ID=4
