Re: Ka-Zar's son's name - where was it revealed?

ShadZ wrote: Abdul Alhazred appearing in MCP was not what brought TARZAN into Marvel's continuity. Abdul Alhazred is a character taken from H.P. Lovecraft stories, and he was not created by the writer of TARZAN #15. So there is no reason to think that the writer of MCP #62 was referencing the TARZA...

Re: European/Other Countries Marvel Comics

Well done Loki, Are those titles the ones that Marvel put out as X-Men Manga years ago? I believe so, though from what little I've been able to find out about the X-Men Manga, the Japanese run lasted longer than the English-translation reprints. Likewise with the Spider-Man Manga http://www.milehig...

I'm pretty sure the top three have been released in the U.S, does anyone else know of any other countries doing Marvel projects not yet released here?
If you want other countries and not just Europe, then the X-Men, Hulk and two different (afaik) Spider-Man Mangas have to be added to the list.

Re: European Marvel Comics

Searching for info on the Woman of the X-Men Graphic Novel by Claremont and Manara, I came across some other European exclusives, such as X Campus, sort of a X-Men: Evolution type of thing featuring the X-Men as young students. Does anyone out there keep track of the different European Exclusives a...

Re: About The New Official Index

According to the OFFICIAL Handbook of the Marvel Universe, X-Men First Class is continuity. Is their word not official enough to declare something as canon? Yes, under most circumstances. We work on both series. But sometimes things change as we go along - right at the start of Nextwave, we left it...

Re: About The New Official Index

I've just purchased our reading assignment for the near future and it's pretty good. To echo Jeph, thanks! Looking through it, I'm making the assumption that "also" means that the issues occured at the same time as the bulk of the story. Assuming it has been used as it is meant to be, also should b...

Re: Wolverine: First Class 5-FB

Hmm. Got to mention, since it will likely affect Wolverine and Guardian's timelines, but the battle between Hudson, Logan and Bedlam happened before any other recruits were added to Department H. The whole reason Hudlin experimented on Bedlam was because he couldn't locate other Canadian superhumans...
