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 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.
