Fantastic Four Annuals 4 thru 10 are listed accidently under a tab called 'King Size". These Annuals should be listed under the "Annuals" Tab.

They're listed correctly, have been for years. Right there on the cover they say 'KING-SIZE SPECIAL", likely in the indicia too, not 'annual' like the annual covers have, so that's what they're under, King Size. And while they did come out annually, most guides list them as Specials/King Size after annual #3 to #11 and not as Annuals. Which granted is a bit silly, since they numbered them with the annuals but don't CALL them annuals, even tho they came out annually. Same way with most King Size issues, for Avengers etc, they're under the Specials or King Size tabs. They've been that way for years here, so they're not going to change that.

Dear Collectibleshop,

To support my position I've attached links of pictures of CGC Title heads saying "Annual" not "King-Size"...Maybe CGC is wrong? wink So, just in case CGC was wrong I went to Marvel directly and they also say annual (see the last link). I know the only way for me to verify is to open the front page and read the fine print on the first page but I can't find mine. While it is possible Marvel and CGC are wrong it is also possible there is a database error here and that's why I brought it up. I have my comics listed here with no problems and am just trying to point out an observation or possible mistake here or at Marvel and CGC. It might be worth a second look? Thanks Man!

We list things by their official title in the indicia. With the number of books we have in the system, it's vital that we are consistent throughout the site. The King Size Specials in my understanding, are listed correctly by the indicia. What CGC does makes sense in some ways because they were annually released but technically I believe they are incorrect. Thanks for caring enough to reach out about this.
