  • 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 cover sequence for notes applying to the cover, and use it in other individual sequences for notes that only apply to that sequence. For notes applying to the whole issue, see Notes (issue).
  • 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.
  • Notes are useful for information intended to be viewed by everyone, such as art and script credit attribution and changes, unusual issue numbering, details about character appearances, etc. This is in contrast to Comments, which are intended for information that is a discussion between an indexer and an approver (editor) about a change being made to the database. Notes are visible to everyone reading any page of the database, whereas Comments are only visible when manually opened from the "View Change History" button on an Issue page.
