Separating out the discussion about the schema draft from the process
stuff so that our threads don't become completely entwined.


>> 1. & 2 

I think it starts to lend credence to idea that the parent of Periodical
Series should be Intangible (or something that isn't Creative Work).
Comic Series are just the aggregation of their respective issues - the
creative teams, featured characters etc. tend to be variable.  I believe
that this holds true for Periodical Series generally.

In regards to one of the open questions...more questions...


1. I think that the Periodical Series would "contain" multiple Creative
Works which are the individual Issues themselves.  I do not think that a
Periodical Series can be a Creative Work in itself, unless you give it
more definition.  For instance, I do not see any properties on the
Periodical Series that would hold a "creator".  Perhaps you are you just
missing that ?  and if so then...question 2...


2. Can you logically fill in WHO created the "X-Men comic book series" ?
or is it easier to say WHO created the "X-men comic book characters"
that became featured in a Comic Book Series ?


In Freebase, we have a "created by" property on the Comic Book Series
type: http://www.freebase.com/edit/topic/en/uncanny_x-men and


3. Are there properties on the Freebase Comic Book Series type that
could be borrowed ?  I am thinking "First Issue" and "Final Issue" which
would be linked elements to an individual Comic Issue.  I notice you
have startYear and endYear under Periodical Series...is there also a
need to quickly link out to the First or Final Comic Issue ?
