Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter's appearance in Marvel Two-in-One 27 isn't listed. Impossible Man is disguised as Carter for most of the book, but the real one does make an appearance in the last panel.

suggested placement (just a guess, really):

CARTER, JAMES EARL JR.
HTD 8
M/TIO 27
CB 27

Re: Hostess ads

Check the Archives (link at the very bottom of every forum page), especially the big discussion (not limited to the Hostess ads) in Archive 60 which is roughly contemporary with that X-Fan thread. thanks! that was an extremely interesting discussion. was it ever settled? the talk there just seemed ...

Hostess ads

Hi, Is there any interest in including the Hostess ad comics that ran in the 70s as part of the project? Has anybody ever declared them non-canon? According to the thread at http://www.comixfan.com/xfan/forums/archive/index.php/t-36096.html there's some evidence that they do occur in 616. Personally...

Re: Peter Parker and MJ in IF 8

as an only somewhat related follow-up (because it's around the same time period), does anybody have any comments on peter parker's appearance in daredevil 135? the current chronology has it between m/tu 40 and asm 153. i know newspaper dates aren't supposed to be very good clues for placement, but t...

Re: Peter Parker and MJ in IF 8

i looked in those indexes and didn't see anything mentioning iron fist 8. in fact, the MTU index contradicts the current order. for MTU 39, Spidey's last appearance is listed as HTD 1, not IF 8. furthermore, it states in the MTU 39 entry: This story is said to take place on a Friday in August. This ...

Peter Parker and MJ in IF 8

SPIDER-MAN/PETER BENJAMIN PARKER ... ASM 151 PPTSS 217/2 ASM 152 HTD 1 IF 8 M/TU 39 M/TU 40 DD 135 ASM 153 ASM 154 ASM 155 ... I don't think this placement is correct. At the end of ASM 152, MJ is not speaking to Pete after he's left her at JJJ's party (we learn about their fight in ASM 153). In IF...

Re: Amazing Spider-Man 85-88 and others

Hi, I have no idea if Paul (or anyone) has an interest in stretching the calendar back this far, but I just thought I'd mention another date discrepancy I came across. The captions in ASM 145 specify that the Scorpion's bank robbery happens in March, while a few issues later in Marvel Team-Up 34 the...

i see your points about the dates - i've already got a taste of what kind of nightmare it would be to try and use them - but i think the other contextual clues i was following make sense. things like the snow/weather, and simply the tight sequence of events in some of the issues, make me think the o...

OK, I probably should have waited until posting initially, but I've hit more snags. - First, in Death & Destiny 1 (SM:D&D 1) there's a shot of the Bugle from sometime in the week following Capt. Stacy's death. It is dated June 7. This means that Stacy's death comes almost immediately before the even...

Oops - looks like I put this in the wrong forum. Sorry about that.

Also, I just read up to ASM 90, in which Capt. Stacy mentions Pete's flu from the previous couple issues. It looks like 88-90 won't work where I have them, but I'm sure they can be fit in somewhere.

Amazing Spider-Man 85-88 and others

Hi, I'm reading / trying to read Spider-Man appearances in story order from the beginning. I've just recently got to ASM 85 and the next few issues following it. Currently the MCP lists the correct order as: -- ASM 85 PUN:YO 2 CA 130 SS 14 A 82 ASM 86 ASM 87 ASM '96-FB WTS 4 WTS 5 WTS 6 AA2 3/2 ASM ...
