SM:VA placement

Post by tlynch » Fri Jan 02, 2009 8:38 am

Spider-Man: The Venom Agenda leads directly into the Venom: Finale limited series, but in the Spider-Man chronology SM:VA is listed as taking place after that LS. It's the other way around in Venom's listing, and that's almost certainly the correct one.

I dont know, they put A venom appearence in Spidey red Sonja in seemingly wrong place ( I couldnt do any better) Based on spideys timeline, I dont know why Spider-Jerk takes precidence over the Lethal Protector.

Anyway these guys do the best they can Marvel tend not to give a crap and let the fans have the headaches safe in the knowledge that we already forked out for the book with the continuity error.

Well, let's look at the chronologies:

VENOM
...
V:LTK 3
SM:VA
V:SB 1
V:SB 2
V:F 1
V:F 2
V:F 3
PPSM2 8-BTS
...

BROCK, EDDIE
See also Venom

...
V:LTK 3
V:SB 1
V:SB 2
SM:VA
V:F 1

V:F 2
V:F 3
PPSM2 8-BTS
...

SPIDER-MAN/PETER BENJAMIN PARKER
...
PPTSS 253
V:F 1
V:F 2
V:F 3
SM:VA
ASM 429
...

We have three different placements in three different chronologies... it looks like something goofy happened.

After flipping through Spider-Man: Venom Agenda & Venom: Finale 1, I'd have to agree that SM: VA leads into V: F 1. In SM: VA, Venom tries to kill Jameson. V: F 1 opens with Venom being disciplined for trying to kill Jameson and a footnote directs us to SM: VA. I don't see Venom: Sign of the Boss 1-2 happening between the two, given the immediacy of the punishment in V: F 1. It looks like Eddie Brock has the correct chronology, and Venom & Spider-Man need adjusting:

VENOM
...
V:LTK 3
**SM:VA move from
V:SB 1
V:SB 2
**SM: VA move to
V:F 1
V:F 2
V:F 3
PPSM2 8-BTS
...

SPIDER-MAN/PETER BENJAMIN PARKER
...
PPTSS 253
**SM: VA move to
V:F 1
V:F 2
V:F 3
**SM:VA move from
ASM 429
...

Good catch, tlynch!
