I started with converting the current index files into a Disney-comics
So far, I made a new WDC index, with information from various sources,
including the WDC updates from David Gerstein (never before put on ftp...)
I think WDC is the hardest part, because a lot of information is missing,
and it's a combination of an issue file and a story file.
The file now looks like this:
Code (with W)Pg Ex Date or Plo Wri Pen Ink Hero Title
or issue = reprint Tag
------------ ---## -------- --- --- --- --- -- - ------------
W WDC 1-FC 1 DD O:Opening the book
W WDC 1-01 4 -- T:THE ROBBER KITTEN
WDC 1-02 0+ = YD AT DD
WDC 1-03 0+ = YD AT DD
W WDC 158-FC 1 52-12-06 CB DD H:<worm in appel>
W WDC 158-*1 10 53-03-26 CB CB DD D:Bzazz
W WDC 158 2 PM GD O:Box Seats
W WDC 158 3 LH
W WDC 158 6 PM PL
W WDC 158 8 BW
W WDC 158 8 CF PM MM H:in camera capriolen
W WDC 483 5 PM MM
I added one field to my 'proposed database format': the page layout (not
visible in the example above). It contains information about the number of
rows on a page, wether or not a page is printed sideways, etc.
There's still a lot of work to do, like adding all the reprint information.
So be patient with me...
