A ruby gem to interface with the ComicVine API.

Some code was built off of work by Patrick Sharp, you can find it here


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'comicvine'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install comicvine


Create an ComicVine::API instance using your API key:

api ='18357f40df87fb4a4aa6bbbb27cd8ad1deb08d3e')

Gather response from a url:

resp = api.get_details_by_url("")

You can also fetch lists of resources while passing API options: (see ComicVine API Docs for optional values)

vol_list = api.get_list(:volumes, limit: 50)

You can fetch a more specific result by id:

issue = api.get_details(:issue, '371103')

Performing a search:

results =, 'Avengers ', limit: 5)


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to
