I was recently trying to do a search for appearances by the Marvel Inhuman Medusa and got frustrated having to scroll through pages and pages of results that included, trading cards, graphic novels, statues, art, etc.

I was wondering if it'd be possible to have the pulldown menu when doing a Title Search carry over into a specific library search query. I wanted to find all of the appearances of Medusa. When I enter her name into a character search I get 700 results. Of these results, I would love the option to filter out everything but comic books so I don't have to see all of the statues, trading cards, hardcovers, etc. in which she appears.

And to take this one step further, the search results are defaulted to display in chronological order. It would be great to be able to further refine the search results via multiple fields like say publisher or title so I don't have to see any of the appearances by the DC Comics Medusa or the original Greek character of the same name.

Not sure how this can be done with the current way the website is designed regarding the search feature but perhaps some check boxes or pulldowns or some other method I don't know since I'm not a web designer. And if there is a way to do this now and I missed it, please share the knowledge.

When you are searching the library there is a drop down that filters by category.

Yes I know but as I said the pulldown only exists when doing a Title Search. Searching by Publisher, Story Arc, Character, Credits and/or Release Date gives you no such option.
