Editors' review

This utility offers a number of tools for organizing your collection of comic books. Like most other database-oriented applications, Collectorz.com Comic Collector doesn't boast a fancy, modern design, but the three-paned interface is rather self explanatory. The program comes with a sample collection to get you up and running, but you'll need to create a new database once you want to actually start cataloging your own comics. You can enter such information as series, issue number, title, author, artist, and condition, then sort your database by any of those variables. If you need to quickly locate a particular entry, the program lets you search by keyword or apply filters. You'll even find a feature for tracking which comics you've loaned out. Although this utility can display cover images, it can't automatically access a Web database to download them, so you'll either need to find them manually or scan them into your PC. Despite our few small gripes, Collectorz.com Comic Collector will be a handy pickup for its target audience.

    "Like a barebones Access db"

    April 29, 2010   |   By amyfairbanks

    Version: Collectorz.com Comic Collector 4.5.2

    Pros

    Umm...the Free Trial?

    Cons

    Does not support UPC/barcodes. Sure, some UPCs overlap, but they should allow you to associate/link the ones that do.

    Summary

    Check out their online database (you can browse entries) and you'll see lots of Marvel entries that are blank. I'm guessing they read DC over there.

    The forums pretty dead, 0 to few discussions pertaining to comic books.

    "Weak database entries; not easy to use mobile"

    April 28, 2010   |   By HachiHAchi6

    Version: Collectorz.com Comic Collector 4.5.2

    Pros

    Simple interface, intuitive, easy to jump in and use

    Cons

    Quality of new entries are poor. Maj of current iss are cover scans. Wrong titles, scans, prices. Not enough standards for a database. Forum doesn't welcome newbies. "Old Guard" are not friendly. It's dying b/c they are running it into the ground.

    Summary

    Ok software, but quality of database is poor. There are better databases and communities around that offer more. You will be doing more work on data entry and checking for accuracy, while new submissions have to be scanned by you and submitted for approval by a small group of volunteers with an attitude. Many times it takes over a week for newer entries to make it into the database, and the entries don't contain data and are not reliable or accurate.

    "Great software for comic collectors!"

    January 29, 2010   |   By Used2bmarine

    Version: Collectorz.com Comic Collector 4.5.1

    Pros

    Easy to use. Like the user-defined fields. I can set it up to print whatever I want on my reports. I also like the "Statistics" function, which keeps a running total of my purchases and their current values.

    Cons

    Took at least thirty seconds to figure out. :)

    Version: Collectorz.com Comic Collector 4 build 2

    Pros

    easy to use wonderful program add, edit comics, & comics info.

    i wanted to put deadpool in character list comiccollecotr didnt have him in the character list but i was able to add deadpool to the character list, & able to add others to other lists in the progam one-shots, sports, to the comic directorys to add as tags

    your also able to save comcilist to jumpdrive, memory card or anyother memry card device and take it with you on the go back up file doesnt take up much room to save on memroy device take it with you & and show your frends or family as long they have the program installed on there computer

    if your a comic collector or know someone who is and wants to add there comic invnetory on pc or jump drive this progam is for them

    Cons

    two things i didnt wasnt crazy about when add a new item to the tag list example malibu comics you cant delete it from the inventory list afterwards,

    and one thing i just found out after everytime i add new listings to my list i have to defragment my computer but other than those 2 things i can live with it.
