I want a Deadpool no cover icon! :blush:

edit: this got me thinking... I'd rather have a complete Deadpool theme for CR! :laugh:

Please give these serious consideration for replacing the unknown fileless icon for 0.9.140:









This one is my favorite:-



Here are its variants:








This one is 3D, so it won't be included, but it looks nice, so anyway:



So, I edit out the 3D books from this icon and centralize the question mark:

Off-topic:-

In case you think of giving icons for "series complete = yes", here is the one:

Don't think of the unknown icon as an actual ICON but as a COMIC COVER.

The ideas is to have a Comic/Book cover where you do not know what is inside. Think of a newstand where one book has a cover with a question mark or whatever, but it still looks like a cover :)

You get the idea?
ComicRack handles this image like a cover, so it also gets mapped onto the generated 3d book box. There's one other thing to think of: in details mode only the top of the cover/icon is seen. It should still be recognizable as the "Unknown" cover.

And I will never put blue easter eggs into ComicRack, even if it is easter now :P

I'm gradually beginning to understand. I promise to make a cover that you could show to your grand-kids, and tell them this was 'designed' by someone called six hundred! :laugh:

I have a few queries. Answer these so that I could get in your head..! :laugh:
  • What is your preferred color?
  • Can I give multiple colored cover?
  • Do you prefer covers with 'question marks, or is everything allowed there?
  • Is text allowed inside the cover? something like 'unknown', ;no cover' etc.
  • Can I model it on a real comic cover? If yes, that would include a small publisher icon, where I can use the ComicRack logo, and the name of the comic, where i could write 'Unknown', and I can replace the actual art on the cover with a question mark?

And thanks.. I always like these jobs where you make me work to the maximum of whatever potential I have..:)

Keep it in line with the colors of the comicrack icon/splash.
It would be better without text, as text is not localizable.

And keep in mind: A wall of these covers (all the screen could be filled with it) should not make you try to run away :)
So better to tone it down a little bit.

I have some more questions to completely get in your head...
  • What's your credit card number?
  • What's your credit card PIN number?
  • What are the last three numbers on the back of your credit card?
  • What's your bank account number?
  • What's the name of your bank?
  • What's your login/psw to manage online your bank accounts?

I think that should be enough for me to completely understand you... :whistle:

Why? Sometimes they have a strange taste that's all... :whistle:



edit: I'll let you go back to the original subject of this topic and won't try to ridicule it any further :laugh:
