Download alll your missed covers!

A new feature has been added to Comic Books Collector VE, download all your missed covers.

As you may have notice the back up option only works for the data and not the images, so if for some reason you completely loose your images even thought that you have a back up, the info will be there, but no covers.

There’s the option to download manually a cover at a time, but if you have a collection of thousands like most of the collectors, that can be a pain.

To solve this I added the option to “Download all missed covers”, this function will calculate all the missed covers from your covers folder and download them. Depending on speed and quantity this operation may take a while.

Currently this function is only available on the VE version of the app.

Adding issues bug fixed

With the new structure of the API from our friend of Comic Vine, a small change on the wording was preventing to add new issues.

The problem was reported by the users on it’s fixed now. Our app was update to the new API rules.

You should be able to add issues with the new update being published in the next couple of hours.


Superior Spider Man and Fantastic Four bug

To all users!

Due a little but with the lasted tie in of Superior Spider Man and Fantastic Four, the app force closed when trying to add any title.

The problem was due the numbering format of the Age of Ultron Tie In, but the fix is now up on version

Sorry and enjoy!

Database under maintenance

To all Comic Books Collector user (both free and VE), (the comics db website that feeds our app) is migrating its data, which is why the app is not working for adding new titles, the DB will be up and running again tomorrow (Tuesday 26).

Sorry for the problem that his may represent and thanks for all the support.

Tag that issue!


Another cool change is available now, the all issues list with drop down filter!

This option allow to easily see all the issues that fall into one of the main categories:

-Wish list



That way you can track what you want to buy or read more quickly.

This options is available for both free and pay version.

But hey what’s the plus for Variant Edition?

If you have the new Variant Edition for the app you can tag individual issues (just like tagging titles) and use this tag to group individual issues, ideal to see all the issues related to a cross over event or a specific story arc, on a same place.

I’m using it for Death of the Family and Throne of Atlantis, and believe me is very helpful!

So download if you don’t have it, upgrade it if your on the regular version and enjoy if you’re a Variant Edition user!

Trend titles list


The Variant Edition of Comic Books Collector comes with a bunch of new exclusive features, the first to come is the Trend List.

With this option you can see what are the latest titles that the users are adding, so you can quickly add your new comics.

If you’re a user of the normal edition, please upgrade to Variant Edition so you can enjoy this new cool feature.

Variant Edition is here!

The Variant Edition is here, and before you think “finally I can capture all my variants”, sorry folks, it’s the Variant Edition as in a fancy kind of the same app (just like comic books!)

With this app (which cost 3 bucks, like the comics!) you will support the development of the app for future changes and improvements. But don’t get me wrong the VE will have more feature than the normal edition (the free one).

What you can expect (really soon) well have multiple covers for each one of the issues that you have is one, and also the posibility of having your library online, so you can really show off your collections to everybody!

So if you really feel like you can give more for this app, please go the the Play Store and buy the Comic Books Collector Variant Edition!
