We've added a few new lookups to the comics endpoint based on some requests which have come in from our developers.
http://gateway.marvel.com/v1/public/comics?titleStartsWith=s will now return all issues in series whose title starts with the letter "s."
http://gateway.marvel.com/v1/public/comics?issueNumber=1 will return comics with the issue number of "1."
http://gateway.marvel.com/v1/public/comics?startYear=2004 will return comics from series with a start year of 2004.
These lookups allow you to find comics without having to drill down using the series endpoint.
As always, thanks for all the great work that you're doing with the Marvel Comics API!
The response to the launch of the Marvel Comics API has been amazing. Thousands of people have signed up for keys and we've seen some uncanny applications produced by an incredible community of developers.
We've also received some great feedback and a handful of bug reports from developers. Based on this feedback we've made the several updates to the API. Many of the bug fixes listed below have been in production for a little while, but we thought we'd list them here for completeness.
http://gateway.marvel.com/v1/public/characters?nameStartsWith=s will now return all characters starting with the letter "s".
We're happy to announce that we have tripled the daily rate limit for most API users. New and existing API users will now default to a rate limit of 3000 calls per day.
