= Infinity. Yes, they numbered some of their comics as infinity.
TPB=Trade Paperback
nn = No Number

Direct = Sold through the Direct Market at comic shops  (i.e. Diamond Distribution, Capital City Distribution etc.)
Newsstand = Sold through the Newsstand Distribution market (i.e. Grocery stores, Drug stores, Convenience stores etc.)
Flip Book = The comic has two covers. If you flip it over, the back cover is designed like a front cover also.
Alternate Cover = The comic was published with more than one front cover.
Ashcan = Preview comic. It is usually undersized. Some are black & white rather than being full color. Some offer sample stories rather than full stories. [This term had a different meaning in the 1940's. In the 40's, an Ashcan was a mock-up of a comic used to secure Copyrights and  Trademarks for a title.]
Squarebound = The cover is glued on at the spine and is usually represented with square corners rather than being folded over.
Saddle-stiched (non-squarebound) = The pages and cover is folded over and stapled at the spine.
The final list has been compiled by Quato.

Thanks to Ultraverse collectors DePluto, Prelate1, & BrotherJ for the excellent groundwork for compiling much of the content!


This list is based on the earlier work of Ultraverse collector Big Tel!
