Comic Book Management System

Comic Book Management System is a plugin designed for wordpress which allows comic book creators to keep fans up to date with their newest releases and encourages pre-ordering with their local comic book store. Creators can upload information about their upcoming titles such as the diamond code, release date, cover image and their role on the book. This information can then be displayed on their wordpress website in sections indicating books out this week, books out next week and books that have been solicited and are available for pre-order. Alternatively, to save screen space all books, this week, next week and pre-orders can be combined together in a single upcoming books section.
