Hey everyone,

Who remembers the Spider-Man series timeline I posted back in early 2009? (Who remembers me?)

I've been keeping track of the Spidey series arrivals and departures since, waiting for a good time to do an update; since we now have a publishing schedule through the end of 2010 this seems like a good time. Attached (hopefully) is a draft revision, current through the end of the year.

I appreciated all of the comments and suggestions last time, even if I didn't use every idea, and wanted to post this here again before I share it anywhere else! Any observations are welcome, though I do have a few specific questions on which I would be glad to have insights:

1. The recent Web of Spider-Man series. "Core title?"

2. The current all-ages series is "Spider-Man Marvel Adventures" on the cover, and that's how some catalogs list it. Marvel's site seems to call it "Marvel Adventures Spider-Man volume 2," though. What do you think?

3. There were a few short-lived series of late, all of which I thought were to be ongoings, at one point, according to at least one source: Peter Parker, Spectacular Spider-Girl and Astonishing Spider-Man/Wolverine. All of them ended with no more issues than a typical LS, but should any of them actually be considered as an ongoing?

4. For that matter, what about Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane "season 2?" Was that actually meant to be a limited series?

5. Is right out. (No, seriously, those are the only questions I can think of now, but do share whatever you want to say.)

Hope everyone has been well,

Matt/Wraith

And in the solicitations it's just called "Spider-Man". Best rule - ALWAYS check the indicia, the small print, for the correct title. If I recall correctly the indicia for the current series says "Marvel Adventures Spider-Man".

If it says mini-series or "1 of 5" etc on the cover, then it's a mini-series, despite original intentions.

Astonishing SM/Wolverine is still ongoing. It's been changed to once every two months, but the third issue came out a week or two ago. It's a great series.

Okay, thanks! That's good to know for a couple of reasons: 1) I'm not completely crazy, just confused and 2) the issue descriptions have sounded pretty entertaining. Apparently it really is good; I'll have to grab this at some point.

Peace,
Matt/Wraith

Thanks for the update! I actually posted a couple of months ago, asking if you could do one, I'm not sure if you saw that.

Here are my suggestions for changes:

- Web of Spider-Man should go all the way to issue #12, not 10.
- In November 2010, Ultimate Comcis Spider-Man Returns to it's old numbering with issue 150. In ctober the last issue of the old number is #15.

- As of Novemeber, "Big Time" era starts signalling the end of BND. Since you include big events in your timeline, might as well include this too I think.

- I'd keep the Spider-Man Marvel Adventures labelling exactly how you have it now.

- In between the reboot era, just like you have a small gap between ASM v1 and v2, you should have the same for PPSM. I think there was a one month gap between volumes, since only Chapter 1 was shipping.

I think that about covers it. Great job with the timeline again! Let me know if you are going to make those changes.

This is fantastic, thanks Mr. Eye!

I didn't see your earlier post as I have not been by the board much at all of late, but it is great to know that some people remembered this and were interested. I will hang out a bit to see any further comments that come in, and then post an updated timeline reflecting changes and corrections.

Thanks to everyone who helped polish up the 2010 version of the Spider-Man series timeline. The revised timeline is here.

Oh, one note: in addition to start/end dates for the Clone Saga and Brand New Day, I added Peter's wedding date to the timeline. I'm not entirely sure why I left it off, originally; I was probably thinking "well, that no longer matters..." But, thinking about it now, in addition to 20 years of stories about a married Spider-Man, Marvel is still publishing new stories springing out of the wedding even three years after it vanished from history. After all, what was "OMIT" other than a story about the Parkers' wedding?

Maybe things will look different in ten years; we'll just wait and see. \:\-\)

And if anyone is really interested in this project, I have a new post at my blog about how and why I started it, and some of the thinking which went into the design.

Peace!
