Every year there is a new release of ComicBase.Â It means I have to spend some money to get the next year’s worth of updates, comic covers, and all the other little goodies the company throw in, but this year, there’s something extra in the update – ComicBase Atlas. The things I’m most interested in are iPhone access (which I hope includes iPod Touch), and finally cover downloads for those who purchase the Archive Edition.Â Complete press release with all the details after the jump.
Peter Bickford from Human Computing, the makers of that awesome ComicBase comic inventory system, sent us a quick note letting everyone know about the company’s Wizard World LA schedule. In a matter of hours, weâ€™re heading down to the fabulous Los Angeles Convention center where weâ€™ll be showing off both ComicBase 12 and Atomic Avenue under a giant rocket ship at Booth #335 (right next to Artist Alley). Come on by and say â€œHi!â€ to Joe, Mark, me, and the rest of the crew. Weâ€™ll be running some very cool Show Specials on both new and upgrade versions of ComicBase
Pete Bickford over at Human Computing dropped us an email to let us know all you first day adopters of Windows Vista will be able to run ComicBase without a problem. The company says it will push out version 11.1 in a few weeks. The bad news? If you have a version of ComicBase prior to version 11, it will not work with Vista. Pete Bickford assured us ComicBase 11 (and future updates to the software) will still wr with Windows XP.
ComicBase has a great application to help you keep track of all your comics. DrawerBoxes are a great way to keep your collection organized and at your fingertips. It makes perfect sense for ComicBase to use DrawerBoxes to organize their massive collection. And I thought I had a large collection! I’m truly impressed.

Inexpensive way to organize your collection –by Stephen Schleicher If you have a large number of comics you need to keep track of, but don’t have a lot of money to spend, check out ComicBase Express. This entry level program gives you access to titles and helps you organize your comic book collection. I’ve previously raved about the ComicBase Archive edition on this site, but I think the $250 price tag caused a lot of people to shy away – instead spending their valuable money on new issues and titles.
Good news for everyone who wants to keep track of their collection like a pro. Human Computing sent an email to us this morning letting us know ComicBase Professional 11 (formerly the Standard Edition), and ComicBase Archive 11 are now available. 30,000 new titles added this, which means you have over a quarter million issues to access. It’s been a big year for us, and ComicBase 11 is our biggest and best ever. This year, you’ve seen us add a staggering 30,000 comics, along with thousands of notes, artist and writer credits, and storyline entries. All this has been made
