Please note: You need to download & have a basic understanding of the Data Manager script to follow this tutorial.

Download here:

p.s. You need a scraped library before you use the DataManager.



DC Comics' New 52 is over.

DC YOU is the new concept (www.comicvine.com/concepts/). This consists of a total of 49 series, with 24 new or retitled/rebranded series and 24 current titles continuing on, some of them with new creative teams and/or directions.

"Rather than having 52 books all in the same continuity, and really focusing on keeping a universe that's tightly connected and has super-internal consistency, and really one flavor, we've really broken it up. We'll have a core line of about 25 books that will have that internal consistency, that will consist of our best-selling books. But then the rest of the line, about 24 titles, will be allowed to really shake things up a little bit."

We make use of the custom fields, and make 4 2 new fields:
  • Concept
  • Concept Group
  • Concept Status
  • Concept Wave



Now, we need to make our rules in the DataManager to automate these custom fields:



I've already done all the hard work & the rules are available to be downloaded here:

File Attachment:

File Name: DCYOU.zip
File Size:2 KB


Import these rules in your DataManager & run it on your existing DC Comics, as well as on your 0-days every week.

To pull these books in your ComicRack, you only need a smart list like this:



Now, it's your choice as to how to group. I'm currently grouping them by Concept Status.




Enjoy! :)


Please note:

Since this is very early in the DC YOU concept, there may be more changes (waves? groups?) in the future, and these rulesets may need to be modified. Also, do tell me if I've missed anything here.

And, oh, personally, I feel that DC YOU is the lamest comic relaunch/concept ever.

Looks fantastic - will give it a spin and the idea of using "concept".
Though I am so out of pace with both Marvel/DC (i.e. only follow very few selected series within those universes)

I've got nothing to add to this topic except the wondering of when did Wonder Woman get man-hands? Looks like a lumberjack....

Thanks! One question, though - aren't Bizarro and Harley Quinn/Power Girl mini series as well?

something I found out today, I discovered that the way Comicvine Scrapper labeled the books, We are...Robin as We are Robin and Harley Quinn & Power Girl as Harley Quinn/Power girl I had to make some changes to get those 2 books in the database manager to get them to be changed. Just a heads up if you guys haven't noticed it. I still need to get all of the annuals from New 52 and DC YOU to be changed.
