ALFRED only scores series, meaning it will run for a minimum of two issues.

Why DC, Marvel, and Image?

A few standout series outside of the Big Three are listed as More.

How is ALFRED calculated?

With tons and tons of data.

Maximum possible scores depending on the number of issues in a series are determined, and ALFRED is the percentage of that that maximum score.
