  • I've noticed that some of the comics in the 1990's (more specifically 1995-1996) credit one or two cover editors in the back of the book. Most of the time (or atleast Catwoman Vol 2 and Green Lantern Vol 3) Curtis King was one of them. What do we do with these credits? Do we put them down as cover artists or what? We can't include them in with the editors section, as they only edited the cover, not the stories. Plus, some, like Catwoman Vol 2 25, have more than one story.

    And while we're on the subject of editors, what about series editors? I found that series like Vertigo's Flinch series have co-editors (and an assistant editor) credited in small print, usually on one of the first pages at the bottom, but the stories will have another editor credited, or just one of the editorial staff mentioned in small print. In other words, people like Axel Alonso and Joan Hilty edited the entire series, with Jenny Lee as an assistant, but the individual stories could be edited by one of those 3, or someone else. For now, I did add them as editors to each story in that issue (only on the issues I own).

    Neither of things seem to have been addressed previously, but are quite rare to come across.

    • We credit group editors, so probably series editors as well. We can only go by what the credits say; if they don't specify we can't.

      I wasn't familiar with the concept of cover editors. Was this with all the themed covers across the line, or within a series?

    • Cover editors are credited at the end of the letters page, with the cover artists. I think it was only comics published between 1995 and 1996. They stopped crediting them in comics published after June 1996, roughly. As far as I can tell it was all series. I know that Green Lantern Vol 3, Catwoman Vol 2 and Darkstars Vol 1 had cover editors. Curtis King edited the covers on both series, usually with another editor.

      Well, when I say "all comics", I mean most. They would forget to credit them every now and then.

    • There is a CustomRole field that you can fill out as a stop gap measure to make sure these credits are captured. E.g. see it in use on Rogues Gallery Vol 1 1.

    • It's a stop gap, that doesn't properly categorize it. I think you can add it to editors, and add a <!-- cover editor --> in editor's notes behind it, like some people occasionally did to split up group, assistant and associate editors.

    • I suppose I could do that. But what about Catwoman Vol 2 25, which has 2 stories. Should I put the cover editors under the first story, or both?

    • Just the first.
