Well, it's not my list, so I wouldn't be the one to tell you what you can or can't include in it, but...

It was my understanding that it's intended to be a list of promotional comics published by Marvel, or at least, featuring Marvel characters. I'm not sure I see the "principle" that includes a promotional comic that reprints a Fawcett Comics Captain Marvel story. Would you also include stories of the Lev Gleason Daredevil?

Hey guys, participating in the fun,

Vanhornluke and Russ have been discussing what should be and not be included,

Okay. Shouldn't the Wisco reprints of Marvel/Timely stories still be included (e.g., Kid Colt, Tex Taylor)?

Edit: some Archie comics were included in the list, since they were part of a series that included Marvel stories. Would the same principle suggest including the Captain Marvel reprint anyway?
How about we say as a suggestion. Yes to all three, if Marvel put it out, Marvel characters appear in it and if Marvel participated in something you could possibly buy as a set.

For something that Marvel participated in that is cross-company , just list it as such.

So maybe list them as

Wisco/Klarer Mini-Comic (Year)-character-company (where it originated).

How does that sound?

The List is updated.

Added Blaze Carson, Kid Colt, Tex Farnum and Tex Taylor to main list which i believe are all Marvel. Will keep the rest in Special Categorty till we come to some agreement on if and how they should be listed.

Added Within Our Reach #1 (1991) [Star Reach] which has an Original Spider-Man story.

Isn't Super Rabbit a Marvel/Timely character? If so, his story should be in the main rather than supplemental section.
