This popped up on my facebook feed just now. I don't know much about Comicbook.com, but I use ComicBookDB.com quite frequently. I'm hoping this will be a good thing.

Man, I'd be lost without comicbookdb for sigs at cons. It's my quick way to track down what's in my collection worth getting signed.

You can use it to find specific talent that is in your collection?

@SpiderTim ComicBookDB is a GREAT resource tool!!! You can find out all the information on books, stories, artists, creators, etc. It's not complete, but it is hands down the best comic book database out there!!!

Hopefully the first thing they do isn’t to move to Dallas...

Yep, this is what it's for. You can search by name of creator or title. For instance, say Chuck Dixon is coming to a con near you and you know for sure you have a ton of his work (because it's nearly impossible to NOT have Chuck Dixon work) http://www.comicbookdb.com/search.php?form_search=Chuck%20Dixon&form_searchtype=FullSite. Type in Chuck Dixon and BOOM a list of everything related to chuck dixon pops up. Click on the link under "creators" and ZAM, there's all the titles he's ever written http://www.comicbookdb.com/creator.php?ID=747 . Expand each one and you can see which specific issues he's done. And they have some fairly obscure stuff. I do find very very infrequent errors, usually due to creators with the same name (like Rob Hunter, who, by the way, also really nice guy). AND, there's usually a picture and even a sample signature in many cases.

If you wanna get really crazy...I actually have an access database of my collection. So I check out comicdb and then can just search my database for issues; pull them, and take them to cons for sigs.

Probably a surge in visitors checking to see if it's still up, kicking the bandwidth meter up from the shared news story.
