Namor Annual 1

Post by Michael » Wed Aug 25, 2010 7:53 pm

Currently, we seem to have some of the characters appearing in N@ 1/2 labelled as appearing in N@ 1/3. Captain America II and Harry Truman are listed as appearing in N@ 1/3 but in reality they appeared in N@ 1/2. Similarly the Red Guardian is listed as appearing in N@ 1/3-FB - in reality he appears in N@ 1/2-FB.

This came up once. The first story in the issue featured a fb to the "last days of World War II". Since the State Shinto Militarists held on till August or September of 1945, hypothetically that scene may have taken place then.

You're missing my point. We've got Harry Truman labelled as appearing in N@ 1/3. We've also got the Hulk labelled as appearing in N@ 1/3. They don't appear in the same story. Harry Truman appears in the story titled "the Potsdam Objective". The Hulk appears in the story titled "Day of Reckoning". Our labelling should be consistent -either "the Potsdam Objective" should be N@ 1/3 or "Day of Reckoning" should be N@ 1/3.

The first story is a retelling of Namor's origin.

The second story is part 3 of Subterranean Wars.

The third story is the Potsdam Objective.

The fourth story is "Day of Reckoning."

It was probably numbered initially as an Annual with only three stories, because the origin retelling has no new information. I would guess that's why the Subterranean Wars story is numbered as the first story.

But yes, you're right that it needs to be uniform.
