As far as I can see, if you want to get information on a a group off issues beyond the number & name, you have to query each one individually - so if you want to get Action Comics v1, it's going to take a while.

Am I missing another option?

If not, could the API developers put more information in <issue> node of the volume feed? Maybe even just the release date?

In addition to publication month and year, I would love to see the image URLs there. Would save me a TON of extra queries.

I'm assuming nobody is actually working on this thing any more :(

I am surprised that there doesn't seem to be a single issue lookup API. Or am I missing something?

Hi all, just playing around with the API@alexstone said:

http://api.comicvine.com/issue/<issue ID>/?api_key=ABCDEF123456&format=xml Right? @ClayM said:

Wow, what a show stopper. I just had a play around with the volumes call, and your right - how horrible. Nearly makes the API unusable - or at least I am going to have to make a heck load of API calls to visually display all Volume issues. Poor comic vine servers!

It is possible to pull all the issues, just use /volume/<volume id>/ and grab the data from the <issues> key.

Hope that helps.

esreborn - aware of that one, but the issues key returns extremely limited issue data - not even an image.
