Content Items are individual parts of an Issue. The complete list of Content Items in an Issue is shown always in the Table of Contents navigation on the Issue Detail, List Content Items page (the document with magnifying glass icon). For the purposes of the XOWComics.com site, Content Items include any delineation of artistic credits for both the cover(s), interior and contents for an Issue, though such content may not actually be a "story". For instance, advertisements, letters to the Publisher, promotional items, statements of ownership, etc., are all categorized as Content Items within the XOWComics.com site.
