Notes (issue)

From GCD

  • Optional
  • This is a catch-all field for anything that doesn't fit anywhere else but you think it worth noting. Direct comments about other fields to here with a "(see notes)" comment. Use this field in the "Edit issue fields" for notes applying to the whole issue. Also see Notes for info on how to use it in other individual sequences for notes that only apply to that sequence.
  • By long-standing convention, the preferred entry method for all text-based information is to use the language the comic was published in. English can always be used as an alternate.
  • Examples (issue level):
* Reported circulation: 150,245 (average), 125,243 (nearest issue) (though this could be listed as part of a Statement of Ownership sequence instead)
* 30th Anniversary issue 
* Published with 4 variant covers 

Notes:

  • Links to external sites pre-approved by the Board or by Policy List vote will be allowed in the future. In order to add such a link, an indexer must select a link source from a dropdown menu populated with the list of pre-approved sources, and the link they enter must point to a page on the selected source that is directly related to the GCD record it is being appended to. The pre-approved sources should be well-established, actively maintained sites that provide information that supplements (not merely repeats) information in our own indexes. Examples include Wikipedia, the Internet Movie Database, or the Digital Comics Museum. Wikipedia links, if used, shall be the first entry in the pre-approved source list.
