This App Stands Alone
I can sit here and say a lot about KCC but here’s what you need to know. It’s a database for strictly keys. We’ve all gone through books and wondered if what you have is a key or not. Well now you don’t have to search ebay. Search character, title or era. Even variants if you want. You can subscribe and get key alerts and other access to information to help you pick low hanging fruit. There’s nothing out there like this. I personally don’t want you to download it because more keys for me. But fine...go on and get it.

I’m constantly hitting up shops to dig thru their long box’s looking for gems with the help of This app. Plus they keep you up on possible trends in collecting, which can be very valuable when you make your pull list selections. Fantastic app. Download it now and get back to collecting with the Key Collector Edge!

I have had lists and post it notes in the past to remind to pick up new issues and back issues. Never again, I can go into any comic book store armed with this app and know I’m getting the best deal and the key issues that may go up in price. I have a separate short box labeled Key Issues. Plus I have purchased comics from this app. I’m not a subscriber but will be shortly. All the functions I’m using are free. Never go anywhere without this app.

    Shocker Cover Gallery

    A big media collection will keep you entertained for ages. But the only thing more fun than watching DVDs and Blu-rays, playing games or reading books? Organizing them, of course!

    As all Marie Kondo fans know, sorting through your stuff is a great way to while away a weekend and maybe even impose a comforting sense of order on your corner of this crazy world. During the Covid pandemic, sorting my thousands of comics -- from Avengers to X-Men, from 2000 AD to Preacher -- not only gave me the satisfaction of tidying them into easily accessible order, it also helped me reconnect with many books I'd completely forgotten about. And I cleared out a pleasingly chunky stack of unwanted books to sell or give to other comic fans.

    This is more than just tidying your media collection into alphabetical order -- that's amateur hour. I'm going to show you how to inventory your DVDs, Blu-rays, box sets, console games, books, comics, CDs, records and digital albums so you have an up-to-date and easily searchable list of your stuff, access to lots of nerdy stats about your collection, and a wish list ready to fill in the gaps next time you make it to the store.

    Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.

    Which app to use?

    There are various options to sort and catalog your physical media. You can list your books on Goodreads or track films on Letterboxd and IMDB. You could write out the names of your CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays in a spreadsheet. But it's a lot quicker if you use an app with a bar code scanner so you can quickly scan your items instead of laboriously typing out each title. Some apps, such as Libib and Delicious Library 3, have a bar code scanner and work with movies and TV box sets, music, books and games. But I've chosen Collectorz Connect because it also does comics.

    Collectorz offers online, desktop and mobile apps for Mac, PC, iPhone ($499 at Apple) and Android. The app automatically loads up cover art and metadata for your items, so you can search and sort by various details. You can share your inventory, create a wish list and even give each item a personal rating.

    A free trial lets you try the software with a limited number of items. After that you have to pay a varying amount for storage depending how many comics, movies, albums, games or books you own.

    How to catalog your stuff

    Find Collectorz on Apple iOS Store or Collectorz on Google Play and choose the relevant app: CLZ Movies, CLZ Music, CLZ Games, CLZ Books or CLZ Comics. Open the app and create an account so you can back up your collection to the cloud and sync across mobile and desktop apps.

    Grab your phone and get comfy with your collection. To scan each item, hit the plus sign on the app's home page, tap "Add by barcode." The screen will switch to a bar code scanner (your phone camera with a white box across the screen).

    Grab a book, comic or other item and find the bar code on the box or cover. Hold your camera so the white box on the screen encloses the black lines on the bar code, then wait for the app to recognize the item. If the camera has trouble focusing, open Settings and check Manual Focus, which allows you to tap the screen to focus. If you want, you can also turn off the bar code scanner's beep and vibration in Settings.

    When the app recognizes an item, its bar code number and title appear at the top of the screen. That item is now scanned.

    Grab the next item and scan the bar code. Repeat this process for each item in your collection.


    Important: The items you've scanned aren't saved yet -- they're just stored temporarily in the app's queue. You then have to add them to the full catalog. To do this, tap Proceed on the scanning screen and you'll see a list of items you've just scanned. Press Add to: Collection in the bottom right, and they're saved into your inventory.

    It's a good idea to scan a few items at a time and regularly add them to your collection in case the app crashes.

    Sometimes the app will ask you to verify the item if it has variant covers or the app isn't sure about the bar code. If you see an entry in the queue that says Multiple Results, tap on it and choose the correct item. Then press Add to: Collection.

    Back up and back up again

    When you've logged some items into the catalog on the mobile app, hit sync to back up your catalog in the cloud. To view and manage your collection on your computer, log in online at or download the relevant desktop app for your Mac or PC. Hit sync to update your list.

    As well as syncing online, you can also save your collection as a file on your computer -- just hit save in the desktop software.

    Check out your collection


    When you've added some items, you'll see your collection take shape. In the mobile app, you can switch between a list of titles or a grid of thumbnails. On the desktop app, you can see a plain list with no thumbnails or an iTunes-style cover flow view to scroll through the covers.

    Your items can be organized alphabetically or grouped by categories. For example, I can sort my comics by publisher, so I can choose to see just Marvel comics. You can also search the metadata. So if I want to find all the comics that feature, say, the Punisher, searching for his name and the results will include not just issues of Punisher and Punisher: War Journal but also issues of any other comic the character's in, such as Daredevil and Spider-Man.  

    Add items manually

    CLZ has a comprehensive database of items with cover images and metadata, but sometimes you'll come across an item it doesn't recognize. For example, it isn't always great at recognizing comics from outside the US. Happily, all you have to do is open the scanning screen and type in the title to see if it's in the Collectorz database.

    If you still can't find your item, switch to "Scan manually" and add the title yourself. To add your own picture of the cover, tap the pencil at the top and choose "Use camera." If you want, you can also add metadata, including the publisher.

    Keep your collection up to date

    When you buy new stuff, scan them with the bar code scanner, save them to your collection and sync across your apps to keep your collection up-to-date. (And don't forget to delete anything you throw out or sell).


    Organize your movie and TV collection

    Movie Connect lists your movie and TV box set Blu-rays, DVDs or even VHS tapes. It automatically includes cast and crew details, IMDB rating, TV show episode listings and even YouTube trailers.

    Organize your music collection

    Music Connect inventories your records and CDs or digital albums, including track listings, record label, number of discs and more metadata.

    Organize your game collection

    Game Connect lists the games you own by console, publisher or other metadata.

    Organize your book collection

    Book Connect lists your books and is searchable by author, publisher or even the number of pages.

    Organize your comic collection

    Comic Connect sorts your comics and also allows you to create a pull list for when you next go to your local comic store. Other options for cataloging your collection include the long-established ComicBase for Windows PCs, which has a web app for mobile devices but isn't available for Mac. Note that CLZ isn't an app that can read comics on your phone -- to actually read comics, try a digital comics reader such as Comixology.

    Bonus features 

    Now you've successfully cataloged your collection, you can also use various extra features. Here are some things they can do:

    • Keep track of items you've loaned to friends.
    • Make notes on your items.
    • Track the date you bought each item.
    • Give each item a star ratings.
    • Log the condition and value.
    • Publicly share a list of items you want to sell.
    • Nerd out with stats. For example, you can find out how many items you own by clicking on Tools and Database Totals. (I own 1,576 comics, with a total of 46,873 pages.) Or you can click Statistics on the bottom right for detailed graphs and pie charts breaking down the stats of your collection. (I have 336 comics with Judge Dredd in them, but only 18 featuring Superman.)

    Key Collector Comics Database & Price Guide App

    Catalog your inventory or build a wish list of key issues. Select what condition your comic is by using the CGC and CBCS grading scale. Get key issue notifications sent directly to your phone to know what's new and hot or spiking in value in the comic book world.

    * Death & Origin Stories
    * Variant Covers
    * Iconic Cover Art
    * Rare & Recalled Issues
    * Classic Stories

    Key Collector Comics simplifies the hobby of collecting. In the past, if one wanted to hunt for a character or title’s key issues, they would have to access four different apps:

    App 1 - Search for information on a comic book title or character
    App 2 - Determine a value and consider what you should pay
    App 3 - Inventory what you own to a personal database
    App 4 - Consult your notes app or carry around a piece of paper with your wish list on it

    The database is updated at least once a week to include new character debuts that have been announced. You can add these comic books to your “wanted” list before they even hit the shelves so when Wednesday rolls around (when new comics are released) you leave the store or check-out online without missing a thing.

    There are well over 7,000 individual issues organized in the database that have some instance of significance attached to it. You can search for over 2,500 characters in 1,700 titles from major publishers like Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Valiant, Image and many independents producers from the Golden Age of comics (1935) to today.

    More Features:
    o A simplified price guide and grading assessment for new and experienced collectors to determine if a comic book appropriate for purchase

    o The ability to collapse covers for faster scrolling through listed keys

    o A filtering option that lets you search in a specific comic book age (Golden Age 1935-1950 approx. , Silver Age, Bronze etc.)

Give our search a try, take a look at the menu to the left to see how you can help us improve the site, or use to track and manage your comic collection.

    Support for migrating text credits to creator links!

    We deployed new functionalities for creator credits and features. There is now support for migrating existing text entries to matching creator records (or feature records). The way we record signatures also changed after we gained experience with creator records. Signatures are now separate database objects.

    On the display side, we added lists of creators who worked on a series or feature, as well as an issue list for features. For both of course more of our data needs to be migrated from text entries to linked records. If you ever wondered to help with the content of the database, now is a good time.

    Uploading Milestone!

    We reached 975,000 cover scans !

    We reached 975,000 comic covers. The milestone issue was Lady S. #5 - Une taupe à Washington from the French adventure series by Jean Van Hamme and Philippe Aymond.

    Volunteers Wanted For Adding New Comics

    Each week, a small number of GCD volunteers add listings to our database for the new comics released that week in North America. These are just the basic listings, not full indexes. This makes it easier for other volunteers who upload covers and for indexers, as well as for people using

    Each volunteer covers one publisher or a small group of publishers ("D publishers except DC", for example). From public sources such as ComicsList and Diamond Previews online, they add the issues and make note of the prices and a few other details. We are looking for additional volunteers for this weekly task.

    Follow this linkfor a description of the process and a list of which publishers are currently covered.

    Here’s how images work in our software:

    Images are not stored inside the database. The image files are stored separate from your database, in a folder on your computer (most likely in the Data/Images folder under the program’s folder in Documents). The entries in your database refer to those image file using a full file path.

    If your cover images are not shown in the program anymore, there’s only four possible causes:

    Find out which of the four possible causes made your images disappear.

    To get your images visible in the program again, it is important to find out which of the 4 causes we are dealing with it.

    Here’s how:

    1. Find an entry in your database that misses its’ cover image.
    2. Now open that entry in the Edit screen and switch to the Covers tab.
    3. Now, on the Front Cover tab, do you see the cover image? If so, you are probably looking at cause #4.
    4. If you do NOT see the cover image there, then look at the File Path listed.
    5. Now use your Windows Explorer to browse to that file path and check if the image file referred to is actually there.
    6. If it IS there, then we must be looking at cause #3.
    7. If it is NOT there, we’re dealing with either cause #1 or #2, most likely #2.

    Solutions to all four possible causes:

    Cause 1: The image file paths in the database have gotten corrupted.

    This is very unlikely. If this did somehow happen, please contact us.

    Cause 2: The images are not in their original location anymore.

    Which could be the case if the user has inadvertently moved them, or deleted them.
    In any case, this is not something that can be ever caused by the software itself, or even by installing an update.

    If this is your problem, find the solution in our manual.

    Cause 3: The program is not permitted to access your images anymore.

    The paths in the database are still correct and the files are still there, but somehow the program does not have sufficient Windows permissions to access them anymore. This can sometimes happen in the first session after updating the software, especially if the images are on a network drive. Closing and restarting the program will fix that.

    Other reasons can cause this too, e.g. running the program under a Windows user different from the one it was installed under.


    1. Download your program again from your My CLZ Account page.
    2. Click the download button for your platform and download the version you’re entitled to, save it to your computer (do not run the installer).
    3. Right click on the downloaded installer, and select ‘Run as Administrator’.
    4. This will install the program with Administrative rights.
    5. Now launch the program with admin rights (right click > run as administrator).

    Cause 4: There are no problems at all, but somehow you lost the generated mini-thumbnail versions of your cover images.

    In that situation cover images do still show up in the Details Panel, but not in the Images View.
