Re: Questions about page counts

7) In older books in which the pages actually have printed page numbers, my impression is that the MCP ignores those numbers and instead just counts story pages. Is that correct? Correct. 8) Finally, how do you indicate page:panel ranges when there's a two page spread with panels running continuous...

Re: Justice or J2?

In my MC-2 chronologies (available in archive 77) I used the code JTWO, since J2 was already taken. I don't particularly care which code ultimately gets used, but it does seem a little clearer to me in most cases to reserve numerical digits for volume numbers. Likewise (and rather anti-intuitively,...

I knew something was up, when the first issue of an X-book sells 11,000. :shock:

March Sales

The sales estimates for March are up at CBR. Marvel clocks in at Number 1, capturing 47% of both units and dollars. Marvel also claimed the top 5 spots in unit sales, and 8 of the top 10, interrupted only by Dark Horse's Buffy and DC's JLA. Largest percentage increase for the month (in a tight race)...

Re: Amazing Spider-Man Family?

What's your point? That doesn't make it an homage. You think Goldman said, "Stan, in honor of the Justice League, I want you to create the Fantastic Four?" Or do you think Goldman said, "Stan, the Justice League is making money; let's make some money, too." Aside from that, how do we get from (a) Go...

Re: Amazing Spider-Man Family?

I, uh, just don't think that my choices are either (a) an homage or (b) a coincidence. homage : anything given or done to show the reverence, honor, etc., in which a person [or object] is held. I just don't think that Spider-Man Family is intended to show the reverence in which Marvel or its creator...

Re: Peter Parker and MJ in IF 8

I haven't gone to the books to verify, but I suspect that the current placement came from either the Amazing Spider-Man Index, or the Marvel Team-Up Index.

You have to show us why the current order cannot work.

Re: Damage Control #3

I would contend that if it turns out to be a temporary situation, it would seem rather silly to list its pre- and post-sentience appearances.

(Although it wouldn't surprise me to never see this referred to again.)

Re: Howard the Duck Holiday Special #1 (Feb. 1997)

A Skrull agent, seeking to free imprisoned Skrulls, took on the form of Dragon, believing that it would get him access to local prisons to free his compatriots - the only logical reason he could believe such an unusual looking form would give him that kind of access is if someone of that appearance...
