Justice or J2?

Post by wolframbane » Wed May 14, 2008 12:53 am

Alright, we have Justice vol. 1 abrreviated as J, and Justice vol. 2 as J2. So what do we use for the series J2, the MC2 series about Juggernaut's son? May I suggest using J2 for J2, and changing Justice volumes 1 and 2 to JUSTICE and JUSTICE2?

In my MC-2 chronologies (available in archive 77) I used the code JTWO, since J2 was already taken. I don't particularly care which code ultimately gets used, but it does seem a little clearer to me in most cases to reserve numerical digits for volume numbers.

Likewise (and rather anti-intuitively, I'll admit), the code for the book "4" is: "FOUR".

How about "MC2J" for J2?

How about "J2" for J2?

In most cases, it makes some measure of sense to spell out things that could cause confusion: "FOUR" for 4, etc.

However, in this case, we've CREATED confusion: there's a book called J2, and an abbreviation "J2", and even though they're letter-for-letter the same thing, they don't refer to the same book!

This would be like having an abbreviation "X-MEN", and hoping that people will know that it refers to "Xavier: Many Erotic Nights", instead of to the much more well-known title that it's actually spelling out.

The J2 thing is bad. Let's change it.

Actually, that would be X:MEN, not X-MEN. :wink:
