"Also on an unrelated note, at the moment the exhaustive database which is ComicVine at the moment doesn't accommodate books about comics. If you feel this should change send your favourite moderator a PM to let them know. "
Please don't. Believe it or not, we humble Moderators don't have the final word in what is & isn't allowable. So spamming us with PMs wont help your cause.
As it is, I personally wouldn't object to books about comics being allowable. It would be interesting to see more members reactions & reviews to books like 'The Science Of The X-Men'. That way other members can decide on whether to buy it or not based on the feedback of others.
