To help you add information to the Grand Comics Database™, we have several video tutorials:

How to Do a Bulk Change

This video guides you through the steps to make a single change to multiple issues in the database. Note that you can only change certain data items in issues via the bulk change method. Note: The "Advanced Search" referenced in the video is now called "Advanced Query."

How to Edit one Issue with Another Issue

This video guides you through the steps to edit two issues simultaneously. This is particularly useful if you need to move a cover from one issue to a different issue, if it was uploaded incorrectly.

Adding A Variant Cover

This is a series of 4 videos to guide you through the various ways you can add and edit variant cover sequences to an issue. It does not include information on uploading the cover, that is found at Adding Covers. There is also information on creating a new variant issue directly from an existing uploaded cover at the Add Variant Issues page.

1. The first method adds a new variant issue from the Issue Page.

2. The second method adds a new variant issue and allows you to edit the base issue.

3. The third method not only adds a new variant issue, but also allows you to edit the existing cover sequence.

4. Finally, a silent video shows how to move existing uploaded covers from one issue to another.
