I know these progress updates are a bit dull but, hey, this Roy Tompkins art should spice things up a bit, right?
This past week I added 47 new entries to the Database and edited another 62 (added info, added photos, improved photos, etc.). I also scanned 30 covers and cropped and edited another 35. Lots of fun behind the scenes here!
The last entries for last week were a couple of Roy Tompkins’ The Mighty Insect lowbrow art zines from the ’80s (scan above donated by Lou Jacobs). Also recently added were some late ’70s/early ’80s newave comix, a good handful of UK fanzine Fantasy Advertiser and more.
As I type this there are currently 9,960 individual entries in the Database. Will we hit 10,000 this week? We’ll see!
Thanks, everybody, for your continued support. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions about this project please feel free to drop me an email.
Hi, folks, just a quick update. This past week I’ve added 113 new entries to the Mini-Comic and Fanzine Database and updated another 55 (additional data, additional photos, improved photos, etc.). We’re well on our way to 10,000.
If you’re curious about how much work remains let me just say this: I’m currently working on a virtual pile of donated scans in which there are literally 18,000+ files to go through. And that’s just from one source.
I also wanted to let you know I’m working on a new reward (or two) for Patreon patrons. I can’t really say any more right now but I think you’ll like it.
