FreddyFly, I know that is your position on these things, and there is no right or wrong.  The beauty of the editing method used is that I can still access the raw images.

If you like, I could post a 100% raw version of the book. What do you think, Yoc?

Whatever you decide BB.
I like the edit version but can see the appeal of the raw scans too.
:)

Thanks for the War Birds.  That completes the run!

...still on a Fiction House run (I am trying to vary the offerings from jungle to aviation, etc so to keep the genres well represented), Wings Comics 009, a paper c2c scan to supplement the fiche copy on site.  A little weighty at 50-something Mb, this thing is pure gorgeous, and I am not talking about my editing!   ::) 

The colors and art on this thing are poke-your-eyes-out powerful.  I was convince by narf, Geo and JVJ to step up to 300 ppi while I was half-way through the project, so this should look good no matter how close in you zoom!

Hope you like it.

Nice work on the latest, Builderboy! I've been caught up in other things and haven't had a chance to scan in a month, but appreciate all the work others are continuing to put in.

I'm in the camp of "scan and don't try to color correct back to a hypothetical original", but I must admit that you have been doing a good job with the restoration approach. Congratulations.

What worries me more with some scans coming in (even on JVJ comics) is that the resolutions are sometimes pretty skimpy. I scan at 300 dpi and then resize to 1024p wide as per the FAQ on the board about scanning. That seems to result in files in the 24MB range which I find scale pretty well and are not too gigantic or too low-rez. Files in the 12MB range strike me as too compressed.

The bottom line, to me at least, is that this may be the only chance that some of these comics have of being scanned. Let's go for as much resolution as possible! (And forgive me if I'm repeating an opinion that I might have posted awhile back.)

Boy, this thread had gotten so dusty, I got the red warning blurb across the top! But....I'm BACK ;D

After much time spent reconstructing things over at GAC (not done yet...but we would be NOWHERE as far along without DCM's gracious help), I have finally gotten back to some scanning, for fear that JVJ would despair of my ever completing my job on his first box to me.

This one is Fiction House's Jumbo Comics #090.  No color restoration (which will please many here mightily, but I will perform after scanning of my box is done), but it is c2c, and I did take time to edit out the defects from what looks like a screwdriver which had been pushed through the entire book. See if you can tell where!

Don't fret, Jim! I got me a new scanner...an 11x17 with fast action so I can cook along now!

Hope you enjoy

Thanks for the nice scan BB!

If it's not breaking any rules of this site, would you name your scanner & give some specs (like scan rate)?  I'm looking for a replacement scanner & you seem satisfied with your new one.

Thanks!
