References in Text stories.

Post by wolframbane » Thu Oct 23, 2008 12:18 am

I was wondering what official MCP policy is regarding the canonicity of text stories,

1/ Do we include prose novels that directly reference the comics?
2/ Do we include prose novels directly referenced by the comics?
3/ Do we include text stories from the Golden Age comics that directly involve GA characters?
4/ Do we include text stories that have accompanying images (such as Monster Size Hulk #1/4)?
5/ Do we include text passages w/ images that are not necessarily stories (such as Marvel Saga)?

All of your questions can be answered thus:

Characters don't "appear" in text, so the practical answer would be "No to text, yes to images."

1) No

2) No

3) No

4) Yes for images only, assuming the story is canon

5) Yes for images only
