Thanks again AD!
All I'd suggest is to just add your new covers in addition to the old file contents, including the original poor covers.  Just have the file names as such that your new covers show first followed by the old cover and contents.

Stay well,

Sure, no problem to keep the original covers. Plus search for a matching inner back cover to replace fiche or damaged ibcs. I see you did that on one of the Black Terror scans.

Yep.
The Worthpoint site sometimes will have listings that include inside pages.  If you get real lucky you sometimes find missing pages that way.

All of your latest upgrades are now up on the site minus America's Best Comics 07F.  I don't think there's much point in upgrading any fiche scans that way.  Our firmest hope is the fiche scans are eventually all replaced with real paper scans.

Thanks again,
-Yoc

America's_Best_Comics_003_(paper)_-new.cbz

Scan of a complete mid-grade copy of America's Best #3. First appearance of Pyroman. Upgrade from fiche only copy on DCM.

Front and back cover scans are from an Epson flat bed scanner. Inner cover and page scans use a CZUR ET24 Pro overhead scanner to avoid damaging the comic. Flat bed scanners put stress on the staple areas, often separating covers, outer or inner wraps as I have learned with some lower grade comic scans.

And thank-you for adding in your scanning technique details.  Very informative.

Uploaded Thrilling #4 paper (flatbed) 300 dpi scan. Complete copy. Previous version on DCM is fiche only. Cracked my first CGC slab open for this scan.

Thanks very much AD!  It looks very nice in deed.

And if it's OK with you we will let this one go live on March 28 as part of our 13th Anniversary celebrations.

Stay well,

As I mentioned over on the page for the issue, I did up a full recreation of the indicia of America's Best Comics #12. It's primarily based on the indicia from srca1941's scan of ABC #21, and aligned with a quadrilaterally corrected version of the fiche as closely as I could: https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipOfBpqkRV23DNyRmy_KKSNLEIhiwWI0fs4_Fwvq
