I've written a scraper for my open source project (ComiXed) and am hitting a consistent problem.
When scraping a comic from the series "The X-Men" (volume=2133), the volume details return the value of 31 for the publisher. The scraping code then tries to load that publisher's details using the following URL (sans API key):
The CV REST API pauses for a while, and then responses with the "Error 503 first byte timeout" response.
But the code works correctly for other publishers. And manually going to the REST API endpoint for this provider consistently results in a 503 as well.
The full error response is as follows:
Error 503 first byte timeout
first byte timeout
