Now up!
Thanks again AG!
I tried to find paper scans of the inner covers but had no luck.  If I did I would have added them to your cbz file before sharing it.
We're quite impressed with your scans so far.  Keep up the great work.  And happy holidays to you.
:)

That is the last of the coverless scans for now. The rest of the coming Nedors will be full scans.

When the CGC census shows only 8 copies of Startling #17 in existence then you take what you can find. As long as story pages are complete it is a big improvement.

Thrilling_Comics_005_(paper)_-upgrade.cbz

Scanned from a complete paper copy.
* Inner covers and internal pages are scanned at 300 dpi with a higher compression ratio than before with no apparent loss of quality
* Front and back covers are from a Heritage Auctions 8.5 copy for better cover quality and colors

Now Up!

Thanks very much AD!  I especially enjoy seeing earlier books like this one.  :)

Your file sizes have been just fine for DCM.  Please don't feel you have to compress your files more to make things easier on our side.
Max cbz file sizes are encouraged to be around 175MB but can go up to 200 if needed.  Bigger than that we suggest breaking a book into two parts.

Thanks again and happy holidays!

By the way, if you'd like someone to work on fixing the damaged ifc and splash page of your Thrilling #5 feel free to upload your raw scans of those pages as a zip file the site and we can take care of adding the new fixed versions to the existing cbz already on the site.

Stay well,
-Yoc

I checked extensively for any compression artifacts and could not find any. JPG compression typically shows artifacts in high contrast or fine detail areas, such as black title lettering against a yellow background. Due to the nature of the original printing process, the high resolution used and the aging of the source material, these are medium contrast images at best, allowing the great compression ratio.

There is some black ink shadowing in the images which I confirmed to be in the original print using 3.5x magnifiers.

I will continue to check compressed images for any degradation before posting.

Sure, I have already sent the raw scans to the intrepid reconstruction volunteer!

Thanks very much AD!
Both are now up.  I looked and the Thrilling BC had a different file name and would have appeared out of order.  I've fixed the name so it should be fine.

Thanks for all your work on these.  Have a happy new year!
