I guess I'm missing something. I followed your instructions, but all I get is a smart list that shows a few books in the series. For example, I have 14 issues of The New Avengers in my library. I made a smart list User Scripts > Find missing issue gaps > The New Avengers and it shows me a stack of 9 issues I already have. I'm not sure what I expected, a popup or something?

The script show the beginning and end issues of the gap caused by missing issues.

For example if you are missing The New Avengers #10 it would display #9 and #11. If you were also missing #11 it would display #12 and so on.

If you want I can whip up a version that gives a popup or writes a text file of the missing issues.

Aha, now I get it. Thanks for the explanation. Not quite what I thought it was, but it does work.
Thank you.

This would be great, as with larger series, like Action Comics, Batman, etc with several issues missing it can be hard to see wich of the issues showing up is at the beginning or end of a gap.

You're very welcome. :)

Like I said, if anyone wants a version that writes a text file or something, I could probably modify this pretty quickly to do so.

@Rincewind:
Whoops I posted this before I saw your post. I'll modify the script to write a text file.

Here you go. :)

Find it in the File->Automation menu as Write Missing Issues To Text File. It will ask for where you want to place the file and what you want to name it.

I haven't extensively tested it, so please report any bugs found.


As usual install it with the package manager or unzip it into the scripts directory.
Updated with version 0.2. Find it here

After testing the "All Comics" option on my collection with over 66.000 comics, I can at least say that if you have all the #1.000.000 issues from DC, that notepad is not the right program for opening the resulting file :laugh:

Hahahah oops. Maybe it's worth hardcoding an exception for this? :laugh:

Heh, I didn't even think about those. I don't have any in my library so they didn't show up in my tests. :P

I believe it is worth hard coding, so here is version 0.2 with that fix. :)
