WOSM 11-12 placement

Post by tlynch » Mon Aug 04, 2008 10:57 am

The Spider-Man listing currently has WOSM 12 taking place right after PPTSS 110, and given the reference in WOSM 12 to "the Jean DeWolff case" I can see why.

However, the closing page of PPTSS 110 takes place in Peter's apartment, which is explicitly referenced as taking place after WOSM 11, and 12 takes place immediately after 11. (The apartment has also been fixed up by PPTSS 110, and is still a wreck in WOSM 12.)

Thus, I would suggest that WOSM 11-12 take place right in between pages 13 and 14 of PPTSS. The latter page is labeled as "the next morning," but perhaps that could be treated as topical.

On the other hand, Jonah Jameson goes out of town in PPTSS 108 and does not return until page 14 of PPTSS 110, but he appears in WOSM 12.

Yikes. Could it be argued that WOSM 12 takes place DURING the DeWolff storyline, so that the cop in WOSM 12 is talking about "the help he gave in the Jean DeWolff case" up to that point? That's about the only way I can see this working.

Ideas?

If the meeting between Spidey & DD didn't take place immediately at the end of PPTSS 110 then WOSM 12 could fit in before that final page. Just don't think of WOSM 12 directly following issue 11. After all, wouldn't the fire+police want some time to investigate the apartment crime scene before letting Pete in to look at the place?

I have difficulty with the idea that the Spidey/DD meeting isn't immediate, though, given that DD had just called him "Peter" two pages earlier. Were I Spider-Man, I'd want to get to that conversation pretty damn pronto.

Herein lies the problem-

His apartment isn't restored until WOSM 15. He is shown living in the damaged place in each WOSM issue up until then. Clearly if he can sleep in the place he wouldn't worry about having a blind guy over for coffee. :lol:
