We try to make a coordinated effort to add issue skeletons for new releases to improve GCD completeness in listing recent comics and, in particular, so that cover uploaders and users of my.comics.org can easily find them.


For US comics, the general process is:

  • Visit [1] on Tuesday
  • There is usually no need to research anything beyond what is listed. One-shots and limited series runs (e.g. issue 1 of 5) are usually indicated.
  • Issue variants need to be added after the base issue is approved.
  • You can click on issues to get cover prices, barcodes, writers, artists and cover artists.
  • Include on-sale date to improve the GCD new-releases feature.
  • Include the barcode or ISBN in order to disambiguate common titles in GCD search results.
  • Optionally, for trade paperbacks and hard-covers you can look for additional information on publishers' websites or Amazon - the latter sometimes has previews of back covers and copyright pages.

An alternative source for comics shipping through Diamond is Previews World New Releases.
