Upgrade to the DatabaseWe deployed some changes how we handle series in February.
- series now have tracking links which are to replace the tracking notes, e.g. WildC.A.T.s (Image, 1995 Series)
- series can be marked as a singleton series, e.g. Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen

"One of the most moving and compelling human stories to emerge out of the graphic story medium."
This work, with art by Dan Burr, earned both a Harvey Award and an Eisner Award (both 1989) for best new series, as well as another Eisner Award for best single issue/story (also 1989). It also made the list of the one hundred best comic book stories of all time.
He also wrote Neil Gaiman's Mr. Hero the Newmatic Man for Tekno Comix in the mid-1990s, and was co-editor of Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie's Lost Girls as originally serialised by Kitchen Sink Press.

Meltzer took over the writing duties for a 13-issue stint on the new monthly Justice League of America series, which started with issue #0 on July 19, 2006, and issue #1 following a month later. Meltzer and artist Gene Ha received the 2008 Eisner Award for Best Single Issue (or One-Shot) for their work on issue 11 of the series. The award was presented by Samuel L. Jackson and Gabriel Macht.
In 2008, it was announced that Meltzer would write an arc of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight comic book for Dark Horse Comics. Whedon would later star as himself, alongside Brian K. Vaughan and Damon Lindelof in the trailer for Meltzer's 2008 release of The Book of Lies. Whedon, Vaughan and Lindelof - who portray themselves - act as conspiracy theorists who believe in a so-called "Book of Lies", which in Meltzer's novel connects the original murder story (Cain and Abel) to the murder of Jerry Siegel's father, shortly before the conception of the iconic Superman character. In 2010, Meltzer wrote #32 - #35 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight.

The Grand Comics Database was first announced on Usenet on March 31, 1994, by co-founder Tim Stroup. At the time of our debut, we had 2000 comics indexed by seven volunteers from 100 series. We've come a long way, and we owe a big debt to the guys who started it all: Tim Stroup, Bob Klein, Jon Ingersoll, et al.
