The Grand Comics Database (GCD) is a nonprofit, internet-based organization of international volunteers dedicated to building an open database covering all printed comics throughout the world. Give our search a try, take a look at the menu to the left to see how you can help us improve the site, or use my.comics.org to track and manage your comic collection.
Programming Help: We are looking for volunteers helping in the upgrade of our website code from python 2 to python 3. Python knowledge is needed, but no former experience with the Django web-framework we are using.
If you can help, please post on the gcd-tech group or use the contact email.

Volunteers Wanted For Adding New Comics
Each week, a small number of GCD volunteers add listings to our database for the new comics released that week in North America. These are just the basic listings, not full indexes. This makes it easier for other volunteers who upload covers and for indexers, as well as for people using my.comics.org.
Each volunteer covers one publisher or a small group of publishers (“D publishers except DC”, for example). From public sources such as ComicsList and Diamond Previews online, they add the issues and make note of the prices and a few other details. We are looking for additional volunteers for this weekly task.Follow this link for a description of the process and a list of which publishers are currently covered.
