The reference will then appear in "References" section, like this:

Comic titles

Template adds comic title to the link automatically (except when flag custom is specified, see below). The dataset is located at Module:QC/titles. Use comic's archive to add new titles of comics into the dataset. For an automatic way to generate Module:QC/titles, see Module talk:QC/titles.


{{QC|comic number|link text|custom flag}}
