Within My Collection, there are two basic lists to work with: My Haves and My Wants.
My Haves is a listing of individual Issues you mark within the XOWComics.com site as owning in your collection. You can obviously have as many copies of as many Issues on your any My Haves. And, individual comics on any My Haves can have different attributes to describe each comic in your collection (e.g. Condition, Purchase Date, Purchase Price, etc.). Boxes can be created to organize the comics in your collection, too.
My Wants is a listing of individual Issues you mark within the XOWComics.com site as wanting in your collection. Different attributes can be associated with each Issue on any My Wants list (e.g. Minimum Condition, Require CGC Graded, etc.). And like the My Haves lists, you can download a copy of any of your My Wants lists at any time.
