Comic book numbering is driving me crazy
Trying to maintain my own database of books is a nightmare. Marvel of course sucks, with their frequent re-naming and maybe/maybe not re-numbering. At one point X-Men went through three different titles but continued with the same numbering the whole time. And now they took all their X-books and went from (for instance) Cable #5 to #150, because they decided to pretend like the series was never re-numbered and go with the total number of issues across all series. Because that makes sense.
But this takes the cake.http://www.comicbookdb.com/graphics/comic_graphics/1/908/424727_20180103210551_large.jpg
That would apparently be Joe Golem: Occult Detective #4. But it's not. The Index inside the cover calls it Joe Golem Flesh and Blood #1. And then throws in #9 in a series for good measure. So why the hell does it say #4 of 5 on the damn cover? Exactly the same as this issue, from three years ago!?!http://www.comicbookdb.com/graphics/comic_graphics/1/751/354257_20160203092708_large.jpg
Screw you Mignola.
