I have searched numerous ways for multiple comic listings and come up with only  8,996 titles of the more than 11,000  available on the site.

Not knowing of a comics existence, is not knowing to search for it at all.

Is there such a file somewhere (just for reference)?

Currently there is only one way to get a 'Master List' of all scans hosted on DCM and it's a function that generates an EXCEL spreadsheet CSV file.
Here is the link - http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/scripts/excel.php
Note there will be several that appear to be broken links but actually just lead to the real download page such as some entries in the Archives and IW sections.

It's seems to be broken.
Sorry T.  I don't know when it will be back but when it is I'll let everyone know here.

Still missing this fabulous resource. Hope it is still on one of the back burners for future revival.

Hi T,
I just tried it again and it seems to be back.
Give it another try.

I believe it accesses our database at the moment you click the button.  So it will always be current for the instant you use it.
As new books are added it will of course become out of date until you click the link once again.

You are welcome T.
DCM is a wonderful group effort.  The scanners who supply us with so many new books each month, the donors who help keep the bills paid like yourself, and the staff who try to keep it all organized and working.  Without all of us there wouldn't be a site.

Yes, I think EVERYONE deserves a big thank you! It's nothing short of amazing to think what a relatively small group of people have done pooling time, talent, treasure, and stacks of old yellowing paper!!! I'm just happy to have contributed a few scans here and there.  :)

While I have a few seconds, I'd like to echo that and correct a small oversight.  To those of you who don't contribute scans or money, I'd like to thank you all for the discussion.  If there weren't a bunch of people to talk to, I doubt the other groups would be contributing a heck of a lot.  So while concrete work is greatly appreciated, those of you who stop by to introduce yourselves and talk about comics are equally valued even when less visible.

Maybe not so much the people who just download.  Eh.
