Spider-Man work group assessment statistics


Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding |spidey=yes to the {{Comicsproj}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Spider-Man work group articles.

Articles to be assessedEdit

  1. Need to go through all Spider-Man related articles and assess their quality and importance.


Good databases:

  • Grand Comic-Book Database - good breadth and depth. Templates: {{gcdb}} and {{gcdb series}}
  • Comic Book DB - similar good coverage with a cleaner and more accessible front end. Template: {{comicbookdb}}
  • Big Comic Book DataBase - useful as a back-up but coverage isn't as wide but it may be deeper for some titles
  • CBDB - another option but a bit less user-friendly
  • UXN - a fairly comprehensive database in regards to X-men related books. Full synopsizes, character biographies, and creator information.

Useful for news, reviews and interviews:
