Year 24
January 2
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #535 (14:6-14:7)

should be

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #535 (14:6)

because there's only 6 panels.

Saturday, September 7 [YR21]
NEW MUTANTS2 - FB (14:1-14:2) should be NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (14:1-14:2)

Wednesday, April 1: April Fools' Day [YR22]
NEW MUTANTS: ACADEMY X #13 (8-12) should be NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #13 (8-12)

You switch between coding New X-Men: Hellions as NXH and NX:H. I prefer the version with-colon.

NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #19 (1-16)
...Sophie clears away the pheromones and is killed by Pierce...

Sofia, not "Sophie"

And surely Gambit v4 #10 must occur inside the school term - i.e., before NX 14? (Between #13 and #14 would also put it in line with publication order)

Thanks, Somebody. I'm not entirely sure about the Gambit suggestion. In GAM4 10, the kids who are being instructed are not the class from Academy X. For all we know, this could be part of a summer semester involving a small group of students. I'll have to check on this.

One of them's Quill, who was introduced in Academy X #1 as a new student on the orientation tour, and had thus been there the entire school year.

Year 24
April 25
AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE ANNUAL #1/5 - FB (1:4-8:1)

should be

AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE ANNUAL #1/4 - FB (1:5-8:1)


April 26
NEW WARRIORS v4 #3
Probably the day after NW4 2 (10-22), as Sofia has different clothing on and the group probably defaced Stark Tower at night.

Really love the calender... i've done stuff like this for Golden Age DC and its a lot of fun reading looking for these clues.

How do i read earlier years like 1-20?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, Ork, for the corrections. Zilch, years 1-20 are in very rough form and are not available yet on the 'Net. If you have specific questions, though, I'd be glad to address them as best I can. Glad you like the Calendar!

Uncanny X-Men annual 2000

year 20
December 15
UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL 2000 (27)
I think the first panel of the next page is that same night
-> UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL 2000 (27-28:1)

December 16
UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL 2000 (28)
You mention the van appearing in page 29.
-> UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL 2000 (28:2-29)

Let's says it's because she's a mutant. Otherwise, she couldn't be walking just two days after UX '00 (20-26).

December 19
UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL 2000 (29-39)
->UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL 2000 (30-40)

X-Men 110
I think you missed one page.

y21
January 21
X-MEN v2 #110 (6:3-7)
->X-MEN v2 #110 (6:3-8)
X-MEN v2 #110 (10-12)
->X-MEN v2 #110 (11-13)
January 25
X-MEN v2 #110 (13-14)
->X-MEN v2 #110 (14-15)
January 29
X-MEN v2 #110 (15-22)
->X-MEN v2 #110 (16-23)

In X 110-FB (9-10), shouldn't Peter be trapped in his metal form?
Well, maybe it's just Kitty not remembering it exactly.
