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,


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.
