Peter Parker's book tour

Post by tlynch » Sat Aug 23, 2008 11:37 am

There seems to be a bit of a mixup in the official chronology so far as Peter's book tour circa 1988 is concerned.

He first hears about the book in ASM 304, and is off to LA later that same issue on a pre-publication tour -- yet PPTSS 142, currently listed as earlier, has both Peter and Tombstone referencing the book as already published.

I'm having trouble seeing how PPTSS integrates here, as there don't seem to be any obvious break points in the middle of the first Tombstone/Robbie storyline. Anybody have any thoughts?

Doesn't the book signing tour coincide with the RELEASE of Webs, rather than being an amorphous pre-publication tour? (I definitely remember a scene in the tour with him signing books for customers, and MJ sneaking into the queue and putting a Supergirl issue in front of him he'd been looking at earlier)

It began before the book was published; the tour began in ASM 304, and Peter saw the first proper copy of the book in ASM 305.

Here was my suggestion from a bit ago. (Just make the first 9 pages of ASM 304 a new entry.)

That seems to work well enough -- thanks!
