However, INDUCKS is not our primary code source.

Egmont at one time supply photocopied galleys to publishers - as they 
did for Gladstone - that provided full contents, including b&w art with 
complete dialogue, titles, and story codes, of upcoming publications. 
While some publishers may still be getting galleys, Egmont has set up 
an online service to provide most publishers with the same information.
