vicki_girl | 5 comments I tried to sort out items related to The Crow created by James O'Barr. I think I've done it correctly, but I don't read many comics. I'm also a little confused on the policies discussed in the Librarian's Group. Any comments or corrections on the series I've created below would be appreciated. :)

The Crow (Tundra Press)
The Crow (Kitchen Sink Press)
The Crow (Image Comics)

There have also been several full text novels written in The Crow universe.

You might want to put more links in each series description to the other series, but this looks good to me! That's a complicated history there. :)

vicki_girl | 5 comments Thanks! I added the links.

I found a some websites that were helpful with the publishing history. Do we have a list of useful websites specific to comics? I found this one especially useful when sorting out The Crow:

http://www.comicbookdb.com/

You have to sign up with a user name and password to see comics that have been marked as "mature content" though.

I haven't found any that are reliable on books containing comics, sadly -- this is one of the reasons I've been so gung-ho about getting this information into GR! When I find a site that's useful for a particular series I'll put a link in my post to this group for that series and sometimes I've been putting those links in the series note field as well. (Things which I find frustrating to no end: websites for books of comics which don't list the issues collected!)

vicki_girl | 5 comments The link in my previous post appears to...but again I am not much of a comics person, so maybe I don't know what you're looking for.

Here is a link to Spider-Man vs. Venom (1990). If you scroll down, it shows the issues that are collected.

This link shows a chronological listing for The Crow, which is what I used the most. (Note, there is an error. There was no TPB produced in April 1989 that I know of.)

BTW, I'm not trying to be pushy, just trying to help. :)

Thanks! I will definitely check that site out further, because that's exactly what I'm trying to find and list for a lot of these books. I've mostly been working on older DC comics, not Marvel ones -- perhaps Marvel fans are better organized already on other sites. :)
