Re: USA Comics #5-8

Oh, I forgot to ask earlier, why no chronologies listed for the following characters?

Fish Face Friday
Carlos Ramirez
Jeep Jones
Valerie Welling
Marshall von Hapz
Disk-Eyes the Detective
Spider McStrangle

Re: USA Comics #5-8

I already broke down the Victory Boys story in Comedy Comics #10: http://www.chronologyproject.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?p=52757#p52757. The boys (except for Victor) were given full names in the Marvel Atlas, so that's how I listed them there. Notice also that it's not the 6th story in #10, but rathe...

Re: American Ace, Castile D'Or, and Attainia

Ah, I guess that makes sense. I thought the ~ symbol was used to indicate simultaneity in-universe, not from an out-of-universe publishing perspective.

Re: Crash Comic Adventures/Crash Comics/Crash Comics Adventures

The more I think about it, the more I think Hitler deserves a BTS appearance listed in his chronology for issue #5. Where in his chronology should it go?

Re: Mystic Comics #1-4

My understanding is that text stories have always been considered extras like activity pages or letters pages, etc. They're bonuses, not "stories" if you get the difference (yes, they're stories, but you know what I mean. I hope). The MCP hasn't included any text stories that I'm aware of, but if w...

James Bond

James Bond is confirmed as a 616 character. He doesn't have an MCP chronology despite a couple Marvel appearances, so I thought I'd put one together for him. I'm not sure if Marvel's adaptations of For Your Eyes Only and Octopussy should be considered 616. I'm not aware of any references to those st...

Re: Mystic Comics #1-4

I've wondered about that, too. Leaving them out of the numbering is misleading, especially when many of them feature 616 appearances of characters like Cap, Namor, etc.

Re: Red Raven Comics #1

Magar the Mystic has an Egyptian background of some kind, and hasn’t been active on Earth for a long time. I see the MCP already has King Solomon listed for this story, and I’m seeing mention of Thomas Edison appearing here also. And a scan shows me that Napoleon also appears. Magar the Mystic is “...

Re: Daring Mystery Comics #5-8

I'm loving all these golden age stories being added! :D Trojak and Tigerman are distinct characters. They both have their own handbook entries. I assume the "Balu" reference was just an error. No chronology for Stuporman? He actually has three other appearances I'm aware of: Snap vol. 1 #2, Snap vol...
