Sounds fine Moose.
I'm a bit confused on the JVJon renaming.  Could you tell me file size and new name for each?

I personally don't think matching the GCD naming in this case is helpful.  All the indicia says in the actual books (and I'm actually checking the physical books here for the magazine size version of the 1st #2, and the 2nd #2) is

Vol. 1 No. 2                 3-D Comics                               Oct. 1953
Vol. 1 No. 2                 3-D Comics                               November 1953

My suggestion for naming would be something like

Tor (3-D Comics) 2a (October)
Tor (3-D Comics) 2b (November)

I don't like using 2a and 2b for the different versions of the first #2 for a few reasons; starting with the fact I don't think anybody knows for sure which of the two versions, if either, released first.  They are editorially identical other than the trim size.  It also makes it seem like there is either 1 or 3 issues worth of content, when in reality there are two.

On the plus side:  If for some reason people feel we still need a scan of the magazine-sized version of the first #2, I do have a copy and can scan it.

Since DCM links to and displays the GCD information for each book, I think it is inconsistent (and confusing) for the November book to be named 002B in the description, while the GCD text calls it #2 [c]. But maybe it's just me who finds this inconsistent.  I've also noticed that Lone Star is using the GCD numbering/naming for the books they have for sale.

But I will let OtherEric and Yoc decide how to name them. By the way, I have already removed these books from the wanted list, since we appear to have scans of the relevant content.

I don't think a new scan is needed if the two are identical otherwise.

Eric, could you please take charge of renaming these and having the GCD # pointing to the proper version?  You know far more about the books than I do.

Thanks!

I have updated the listings.  They all now point to the correct GCD listings.  For titles, I went with Tor 002 (10/1953) and Tor 002 (11/1953), to avoid the a/b/c confusion with the GCD, and with Tor rather than 3-D comics to match Overstreet and, honestly, how people normally refer to them.  I also added notes to the issues explaining the specifics of each issue as best I could.  I will stand by the accuracy of my notes, but would appreciate people checking them for clarity.  Let me know if this works for everybody.

Thank you for updating the list, a nonny moose.

One final note:  I highly encourage anybody who hasn't to read the series, it features some amazing artwork by Kubert and others.

You're very welcome. As long as we are updating the titles/descriptions, I noticed one other thing that should probably be amended. The book titled "Tor 002 (10/1953) (in 3D)(diff ver) -fixed" should mention that the scan is incomplete; it is missing the inside front and and inside back covers. Also, I think the back cover that is included is the wrong page. (It is different than the one on the JVJon scan). From cover scans I have seen on eBay and Heritage, I am pretty sure that the two October versions have the same back cover.
