ComicBase 19.3.1 Beta Now Available

This beta updater cleans up after two oddball problems: a rare issue which could lead to the program looping when installing updates which involve a great many changes; and a fix to error messages which would occur if you sold an issue on Atomic Avenue, but deleted the issue's record in your ComicBase before deducting the sold item.

Have these problems happened to you? If so, try out the beta updater at the link above and let us know what you think at

ComicBase Archive Edition Passes 600,000 Covers

The mighty ComicBase Archive Edition just passed another massive milestone: over 600,000 comic cover images are now included in the new, 4-DVD pressing. We've also updated our downloadable Archive Edition images for those who don't have an optical drive on their computer (although we'd definitely steer you to ordering a physical copy if your computer does have one, as it's a big download!)
