New Comic Book Day, week 52: 460 new releases!

This it, the very last New Comic Book Day of 2023! This “between X-Mas and New Year” week, we only have half of the CLZ Team at the office, so we were quite happy to see that today was one of the smallest NCBDs of the year, with only 460 new releases. That is, when counting all variants. Without counting variants, the total comes to 181 actual new issues.

Rowdy and Justin did all the work this week and just an hour ago, they finished adding all 460 new releases to our Core online comic database. All entries have been made as complete as possible, with the actual cover art, variant descriptions, creator information (with correct Cover Artists listed for all variants), etc… etc…
