Yes, the Color Computer Archive is much more complete than Archive.org.
BUT... Both the "clearscan" and the "searchable" copies leave a lot to be desired. The scanning "looks" good, but underneath, nothing can be "copied & pasted" to ANY degree of usable text, making the text searches invalid as well.
I prefer Aaron's scans at cococoding, which at least will deliver some decent text copies, though you will still have to edit many things. The text searches produce better results as well.
Aaron's magazine lists are incomplete as they were OCR'd from older archives which were incomplete as well. In the case of missing or corrupt issues, you will have to go to the Color Computer Archive or Archive.org.
