    Collection Management Software

    Was forced to tidy the garage over the weekend, and realised that I really need to catalogue my comic collection. I've had a look at various bits of software: Comic Base, Comic Collector Live, and Collectorz - but they all seem to be subscription-based. I don't mind paying for something, but I'm not keen on having to pony up every year.

    Has anyone got any suggestions?

    Must haves:
    • Some way of highlighting missing issues
    • Easily searchable
    • Field for which of the many boxes a particular comic is in
    • Export to one of CSV/Excel/PDF/HTML, or a WinMo app that can be synced or a personal online component (so that I can take my list with me)


    Nice features:
    • Built-in, updatable database (to save typing)
    • Covers


    Something that does much the same for books/music/games or (even better) all the above would be useful, too.

    Has anyone used Data Crow or GCStar? Any good?

    This turned up in one of my RSS feeds a little while ago:

    Link: Comic Book Collection Software




    I can't comment on it though as I haven't looked at it. I just thought that the link might be useful as it has links to other types of collection software at the top right of the page. Operating in a similar way [look/feel] going by the screenshots.

    Doh! Blocked at this school (but I have a feeling that "Freeware" is OK at my next port of call).

    Thanks for that! Looks just the thing - not as slick as the "paid for" stuff, but should do the job. I might go for one of the "prettier" other options for the books and movies, though.
