Fill Series is a plugin that will create fileless entries with covers and metadata info for all missing issues for every series you selected. This makes finding missing issues a snap. You don't have to select every comic in the series to start, just one or half or all will give the same result.

Requires Comic Vine Scraper already be installed and configured with your own API key, tested with version 1.0.83 and up

It requires all comics to be scraped with a newer version of Comic Vine Scraper - if you have the custom values comicvine_issue and comicvine_volume you are all set.

This is a much improved version of my earlier script. Now that ComicVineScraper requires you to enter your own API key I no longer have to replace files and Fill Series can be it's own standalone plug in that loads your already installed CVS files and settings.

Thank you! Fully compatible with a summary screen at completion. Works perfectly.

This is a great improvement, nice.

I'd really like a variation that, instead of adding fileless entries, just dumps the list of missing issues out to a text file or something like that. Any chance of that?

There are other utilities that write out to text files I believe. You could also use this one, select all fileless entries, and then right click to export the list using Comicrack to get a csv file of everything.

I like to generate the fileless to see what I need then use the DuplicatesManager to clean them up when I have a real comic that can replace it.

Caliph, I like the concept of your plugin, but it is creating file-less entries even when the accompanying issue already exists. I have attached a screenshot. Issue 10 already exists on disk, but the script created a file-less entry for it anyway. Issue 15 is missing and the script correctly created the file-less entry. All of the books were scraped with the ComicVine scraper.

Does this also look at the CV DB to determine the last issue in the series? This is more what I have issues with as I already use the built in gaps function in CR.
