Add method not working properly?

Nothing wrote to the console. I noticed that breakpoints aren't working after the Add method for the comic books property of the context. Any ideas?

Update: I set a breakpoint at the context.ComicBooks.Add method to see the Database.Connection.ConnectionString property. It reads as follows:

"ConnectionString ""Data Source=(localdb)\mssqllocaldb;Initial Catalog=ComicBookGalleryModel.Context;Integrated Security=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=True"

It doesn't seem to be coming up in the SQL Server Object Explorer.

If you'd like help with your code, you'll need to share it here; perhaps by posting a link to a Repo.

I had the same problem at first, but after waiting for a while, the program did actually work. On subsequent testruns the program then worked much faster. If that doesn't help, maybe just continue watching the next section, were James goes over setting up SQLLocalDb. I think this video here assumes, that LocalDb was automatically setup during the installation of Visual Studio, which might not be the case for you.
