I know I've tried to post new titles to the IMDb before (and that
probably includes Return to Innsmouth) and it's never, ever worked.

It's especially strange as other, far more obscure short films *are*
listed (look at http://uk.imdb.com/Title?0107786

then you have to run away, or they'll make you find the right listing
in the Magazine Buyer's Journal (approx. 300 pages of names of
availible magazines, comics and newspapers) even if you didn't want
it that badly in the first place.
