I'll be there. I was able to stop by the resturant for a couple minutes last year, but not stay for food. I might be able to stay for food and drinks this year, but I'm not sure.
Any free t-shirts this year? How long until CV gets a booth at SDCC?

Looks nice. I'd recommend a few changes on the lettering/bubbles. I don't think they should touch unless it's the same person talking. Also, the callouts (the little arrow things from bubbles) might need a bit of work.
Here's a great page that will show you how to do everything from an actual comic-book letter:
He even has a few free fonts for comic-books (see terms & conditions for use there), that you can check out.

This post says there's an app in the store already for it:
I also use the Comic Vine mobile web pages that way I don't need to install anything.

I'm pretty interested in this as well. As a Marvel reader (with no current DC issues on my pull list), I think this might be the first DC issue that I've bought in decades. I'm curious to why the title changed from Sgt Rock: Men of War to just Men of War. 
Does this sound like Easy Company will be battling DC's super villains or just battling on the landscape carved by them?
I've never read anything by the writer before. Does anyone have any opinions on his writing?

@pikahyper: Thanks for the reply. The lender makes sense. I see that a lot more with movie/dvd type inventory management apps, hadn't considered it for comic book app, but it makes sense.

@pikahyper: Thanks for all of the great responses. What do you mean by "leading feature"?
@bigpicnic: Most of the CB management apps would support the items in the opening post. After the basics, every CB inventory management app has different reports, features, functions, etc. I'm just asking what reports, features, would you add into a CB management app if you were building one. Odds are, even if you were using a commercial CB inventory management app there's probably a few things it doesn't do that you'd like it to do. So I'm hoping to use this thread as a brainstorming session to figure out if there's something that I didn't know about that can be built as part of the app or as part of a plug-in.  I'm using Comicster ( Comicster.net - don't go to .com make sure it's .net). I'm currently building plug-ins for the app and hoping to use some of the great ideas here to build some plug-ins for the Comicster community. I've built a couple basic plug-ins and I'm working on a couple more.
