Scraping

Once you are done with the settings, Click Start scraping to start the scraper find matches in the Comic Vine database for your selected comic books.

The scraper finds a number of matches for the series being scraped. Most of the times, the desired series would be found at the top of the list. Choose the correct series, and then click Ok to move to the next step. Alternatively, you can use the Show issues button to preview the individual issues for the desired series. Use the Search again button for a fresh search. Clicking Skip omits the particular issue from the scrape and moves on to the next in queue. The Cover art can be toggled off/on at all stages of the scrape.

This is an optional step. Clicking the Show Issues button opens the Choose a Comic Book Issue dialog, which provides the issue list for the chosen comic series. This helps in choosing an individual issue, if required. The Go Back button takes you one step back to the series list, where, if needed, a different series may be chosen. Comic vine scraper also helps you choose between variant covers for an issue. Simply click the small arrow below the issue cover and you can browse through all the alternate/variant covers of that issue present at the comic vine website. Once you are satisfied that you have correctly matched the issue at hand, click Ok. Please note that you can cancel the scrape anytime during all these steps by simply clicking at the cancel button at the bottom of the main scraper window. Watch the scraper gather details and declare that the scrape is complete. This is automatized metadata at its best.

While scraping a batch of comic books, how do I omit certain books from being scraped?

Write CVBDSKIP in the Tags field in the Details tab of the Info dialog. Any comic with this tag will be skipped during future scrapes, so use it with care! If you decide to skip a book while scraping, just hold down the control key when you click on the Skip button, and the scraper will automatically add a CVDBSKIP tag to your comic.
