0.8.0: Adds the feature that removes a detected story arc if also found in the Alternate Series. You must check overwrite for this to happen since it will overwrite the Alternate Series. I added this to better handle multiple alternate series listed in CV, where one is really the alternate series and one is a story arc. See below for screen shots.

Make sure you check overwrite to enable this feature -

Just curious if people are regularly using this script, or if it's just me. Not that I'll be stopping if it is just me.

Just found this today while I was doing a full refresh of my library... THANK YOU!!!

Though I have one question, for some reason it doesn't add the Story Arc if something is in Alternate Series

If the story arc that is found is the same as the Alternate Series downloaded from CV then I don't update Story Arc Field. I do this because it would be duplicate info and because it's possibly a cross over event with multiple series involved, and then the correct field is Alternate series.

I can understand that if ComicVine didn't put everything into Alternate Series automatically... Your script is great, it just doesn't work very well with comics that have been scrapped with ComicVine

Can you provide an example comic or two?

How do you believe the Story Arc and Alternative Series fields should end up? And how do they end up when you run the plugin?

Sorry I think I was thinking of something else entirely. Your script does exactly what it's supposed to do perfectly :)

So many automations right now with Data Manager lol
