Due to unforeseen circumstances (I accidentally broke the Removing content? thread... I'm really sorry!) it seems that we need a new place where Viners can request the removal of covers.

As only Moderators & Staff can remove scans from issues, then please feel free to request the removal of covers here. This can include Issues where:

  • The wrong cover was uploaded;
  • Duplicate covers have been uploaded;
  • Internal artwork was uploaded as a cover.
  • A 'nude' cover/the solicited preview image was uploaded instead of an actual cover;
  • Cover is watermarked by publisher or another website;
  • Fake fan-made images have been added; or
  • A better quality scan has been uploaded & the old cover needs to be removed.

There are most likely other types of request too, but these seem to be the most common.

Please Note: 'nude' covers, or the solicited preview image, is not acceptable on the issue page. This is the one place on ComicVine were we really do want to see the image of the actual cover with title, issue number, company logo, creators names & barcode stamped on it. We're after the comic issue cover, not the artwork (that can be found in the character, team, or creator's galleries)

You MUST include an active link to every issue you want editing. Not the volume. Not the image. Link us to the ISSUE page:

The Right Cover...? The Wrong Wolverine...!

If you've found a cover that you think really needs to be replaced with a better quality one (due to size, watermarks, etc.) but can't find a better image yourself, you can request for other users to upload a better quality cover here.

@xerox-kitty: 
Can you elaborate on this point a little, please?

- Preview image loaded as a cover (not allowed!);

I assume "preview image" does not equal "image of a preview issue"?!
Some preview issues cost money...some don't. Is that a relevant factor when adding issues to the wiki?

@Senter: 
i believe what it means is...

 this type of preview of a cover, no.


 actual cover of comic, yes.

The first cover art on this page is probably just a preview and should be removed.
The "plot summary" on that page also seems questionable. It is very detailed and includes the creator credits. Could be a copy & paste job from some magazine or site.
 
Regarding my previous inquiry...
Personally, I'd tend to treat preview issues of comic-books as individual issues in a volume.
Someone combined the "preview edition" and #0 of "Ascension" in one page here. (The two are not identical. I have both).
I took the liberty to create an individual page of the "preview edition".
 
Which approach is preferable? Are preview issues deserving of their individual pages, regardless of whether they cost money or are for free?
If the "Ascension" preview edition is permitted its own page, this cover art should be removed from the Ascension #0 page.

#10 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio
@Senter: Removed the first one. 
 
Which version of Ascension #0 are you saying should be removed?  Zero & Minus numbered issues tend to be included with the regular volumes.  Check out Uncanny X-Men or the original X-Force to see what I mean.
#11 Posted by Senter (15 posts) - - Show Bio
@xerox-kitty: 
Ascension #0 was included with an issue of the Wizard magazine. The Ascension "Preview Edition" (see top left corner of first cover) was possibly included with a different Top Cow book, but certainly not with another issue of Ascension. By the time the preview edition was released the series hasn't existed yet.
(Nor did it come with an issue of Wizard, as it lacks the Wizard logo.) 

- This is the page of Ascension #0.
- This is the cover art that should be removed from that page, if there is no argument against it.

At least I cannot think of a reason to leave both issues combined in one page. Only thing they have in common is the title and that both came for free.

@Senter: when adding comics, it all depends on what the indicia reads, most preview issues I'd guess are added incorrectly as in most cases they should be a volume all their own like this while a #0 is technically part of the chronological run of the series.

Generation X minus 1 the alternate cover is the wrong issue 
 
Generation X 1 multiple copies of the same cover
 
Yay to the new title ! While we are here shouldn't the dupe page also be a sticky?

what about if they do not have a barcode
#18 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio
@emerald lamp 2814: We want the actual comic book.  Scanned, not a photograph; there is a huge difference in quality.  And not in the bag.  Just the comic.

We want the front cover.  The majority of Marvel & DC covers have a barcode on the front.  it's pretty damned rare to have a mainstream book with the barcode on the back cover.  That doesn't mean we want the back cover.  We want the front cover.

on the GLC 47 some one put up a cover where they whited out the barcode.

Generation X 1/2 The actual cover got a water mark on it. I upped a untainted one & the non-variant cover
 
The one with the special wizard edition tag on it is actually the variant the other one is the official.

Oh I didn't know about the tracing it funny how a simple ugh make you want to learn more about an artist.
 
Anyway I did some cleaning in the naruto volume : 
 
05 - better quality
10 - better quality 
11 - better quality
12 - better quality
17 - better quality
18 - the 2nd is actually the french edition
22 - better quality
42 - had a sticker on the cover -.-
45 - better quality, was blurry
46 - 2nd is japanese edition

48 - I upped the correct cover even if it kind of low quality but this issue isn't out for another 2 week oh well
#35 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio
@Yumulu: #5  & #17 have a small watermark on the top & bottom saying "copyrighted material".  So it would be appreciated if you could find cleaner alternate versions.  And 48 is a bit... compact & bijou ;)  But they're all done.
#36 Edited by Yumulu (762 posts) - - Show Bio
@xerox-kitty: New covers up, haha take that sneaky editor that only put watermark on only two of their cover.  Sorry about that I'll pay more attention next time.
 
Bijou, not familiar with that expression, well it is french for jewel so... it a cuter way of saying cute?
 
so naruto 05 - 17 
and a new one One piece 54

 There Viz releashed a better quality version of the cover for naruto 48

@xerox-kitty:
If we "editors" edit the covers to make them look better "shiny", would that make them more of a chance to replace the other cover that was initially edited?
#41 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio
@Supreme Marvel: That really depends on how good the new version looks compared to the old one.  If you're literally taking the previous image & making it look a little brighter then there isn't much point; it's still the old image.   
 
We'd rather Viners replace watermarked, small or blurry covers.  On the other hand, if the version is so pale it looks sun-faded & bleached then yes, do replace it with a bolder image.

Can someone delete this? I added it because on my screen nothing happened past this point in Action Comics, then when I added it, the rest appeared.

The "Cover" of Wildguard Casting Call #3 is an advert from somewhere or other (no publisher details, price, issue number, bar code etc) 
 
the "Upload cover art for this issue" button isn't working, so i can't up load it to the page but it should be:- (obviously click on the pic for the BIG version)
 

#45 Edited by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio
@NodNolan: I can't get the upload cover link to work either.  Unfortunately, we can't remove a cover unless there's a substitute.  So unless another Mod can manage it, we'll have to sit on this & come back to it later.  Sorry.

I believe that the cover to Superman/Batman Annual #4 is incorrect. Here's the link

What makes you think that it's incorrect? It says "Annual" it says "4" and the cover matches the plot summary (Batman Beyond), it also has the bar code, the publisher's name and the creator credits.
