Waldo Dijk | 10 comments It would be most helpfull if the format soft cover or hard cover would be available for example comic books.
For example Comic SC Comic HC.

Waldo Dijk | 10 comments for example it would help on a case like De Rode Ridder: Leopold Vermeire wrote the original 64 books, Willy Vandersteen made a comic range about them few hundred off them.

lethe | 14836 comments Why is 'hardcover' or 'paperback' not enough for comics?

BTW, if a format isn't listed in the drop-down menu, you can click 'options' and add the requested format manually (please use only when the right format isn't listed).

Waldo Dijk | 10 comments Because a comic generally has a complete different size format and it would differ-ate between books and comics but okay I try that.

I don't think that's enough to warrant a new format. Other books are also published in a great variety of sizes, and most of them fall in the hardcover or paperback categories. The only formats I have come across that are lacking in the drop-down menu are bound books with a soft cover (either paper or linen).

Waldo Dijk | 10 comments I think there is a great difference between comics and writen text and the comment paperback which some people use is very confusing it's a softcover comic or a hardcover comic.
Then again I have around 1800 comics so I probably care more about it then most people do.
