Introducing the most comprehensive, powerful, and easiest-to-use ComicBase ever!

ComicBase 2022 adds an unprecedented number of new listings to its already-massive database—along with fully updated pricing based on verified market data. It also brings powerful new features, as well as innovations to help you get going faster so you can get more done with less work.

Building on its industry-leading database of comics, the new 2022 edition adds over 130,000 new listings, along with fully updated pricing based on real market transactions. Not only does this include massive numbers of new comics, but it also adds in pricing and information on tens of thousands of new magazines and books as well.

With the new edition, ComicBase adds new capabilities for handling variant items, a powerful new Find and Replace function, and adds in cool new features like Dark Themes and the ability to let you customize how ComicBase shows market data to make the displays more informative."

At the same time, ComicBase 2022 introduces several new innovations to make this the easiest-to-use ComicBase ever. A new "Getting Started" wizard lets you set up the most important functions with just a couple of clicks, and useful tips appear as you use the program to show you what's new, get new users started off right, and help even experienced users learn new ways to do things more efficiently.

For Archive Edition users, a new Quick Start option let you use ComicBase's complete picture library of almost 950,000 cover images by installing a single 8 GB file. Then, as you use the program, full-resolution images are instantly loaded as needed, letting you take full advantage of the vast ComicBase cover image library while requiring only a tiny fraction of the download time and disk space of a traditional full install.
