This template uses DPL and lua Module:Comics to return a gallery of comic issues based on the parameter category (for example, Category:Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1 for Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1). It can be used to automatically create a list for entire volume, without a need to add information manually.

Template can return up to 1000 results.

The issues are sorted automatically, including point one issues.

Images are added from Marvel Database:Comic Template's field "Image", or, if it is empty, template would check for cover or textless version, if none of them exists, "File:No Image Cover.jpg" would be used.

Parameters part1-part9 can be used to specify the number of returned results. If they are not listed, entire volume would be returned (example: User:Harasar/Sandbox/Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5).

Parameters part1_above-part9_above and part1_below-part9_below can be used to add text before or after gallery, for example part1_above - to add a header, while part1_below - to add information about relaunch of the volume (example: User:Harasar/Sandbox/Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1).

If template isn't working for some categories, it is likely caused by excess [, ], { or } in some of the comic issues.
