I've got a "comic" here called The Art of Akira Volume 1. No story, nothing like that, just a collection of stills and production art, all black & white. Should this be included in the database, and if so, what under? Certainly not comic, nor graphic novel. My instinct would be magazine.


A few cover links:

Is it comic dimensions? What's the binding like? And are the contents drawn or stills from the anime?

It's your basic modern comic dimensions, and most of the images appear to be stills from the movie in black & white with basic descriptions under them, but some are production art, basic prelim outlines, things like that.

Since it's mostly art with no articles, and it's comic book dimensions, I say add it as a comic.

Sounds like a comic to me. It looks awesome! I love the Akira manga and anime.

When you shop at Hall of Heroes you can expect:

Fantastic Customer Service
Quality Comics at Reasonable Prices
Variety

I won't say that I have the most of this or that but I will say that I offer a diverse selection of comics from the earliest days of publishing right up until the most recent releases. In addition to the Big 2 (Marvel and DC) hundreds of smaller publishers are represented in my Inventory. Browse through my Store Shelves to find hidden gems that you may have forgotten about. Scans provided upon request and I have an "Open Door" communication policy. Thank you all for your continued support!

The reason I hesitate is that it doesn't actually tell any story, not in a typical comic format, at least. Just a description or title of each image, and I don't even think they're actually sequential.

I believe that there are numerous instances in the DB of comics containing only art and no "story". Superman Gallery comes to mind right off the bat. I agree with Padre, it should be added as a comic.

+1. We have all sorts of "Art of..." books and sketchbooks in the DB as comics.

Good point. I'll go ahead and add it there, then.
