The kwakk.info (re)search engine for magazines about comics went extremely mildly viral a few days ago, and reading the comments I went “Oops! I totally forgot about Ipads…” And indeed, the thing looked absolutely horrible there, so I gave it a spruce up (see above). I think it should be fine now — and it may indeed be the best way to use the search engine, because the vertical format fits the scanned pages very well, and you don’t have to zoom as much to read the pages.
And while I was tweaking things, I also fixed up the cell phone interface:
Lots of zooming required to read anything, of course, but…
Anyway, the point of this post is just to say that I’ve added some issues from the Comics Buyer’s Guide (or is it Comic’s Buyers Guide? Comics Buyers’ Guide? such complicated) that I found at archive.org. Now, there were about 1700 CBG issues published in total, and archive.org only has about 150, so that’s less than 10% and I originally thought that wasn’t worth adding. But on the other hand, 150 issues is a lot, isn’t it? So I went ahead and added them anyway.
If anybody’s sitting on a huge cache of scanned CBG issues, please get in touch.
