Spider-Man Complete Chronology Update 9

SpiderMan Chronicles

And we’re back!  This update took longer than I suspected for many reasons.  Some of them personal, some of them ironing out a few continuity issues, but luckily none of them trying to figure out if it was winter and where Peter Parker was working!

It’s a big update consisting of over 90 issues as we make our way through most of 1981-1982.

As usual, spoilers follow from here on out if you’ve missed out on the last 50 years of Spider-Man and are just getting started.

Spider-Man Complete Chronology Update 8 (Couldn’t Stand The Weather Edition)

SpiderMan Chronicles

Everything was going along just fine until disco came along.  I’m probably not the first person to write that sentence.  For our purposes I refer to the fact that even with 3 monthly books and various guest appearances, the wall-crawlers adventures had been pretty straight forward to put in order.  But then came a couple of issues where Peter went to the disco (and then teamed up with the cast of Saturday Night Live) where everything just went all to hell.

Much, much more on this after the break as I try to put this update to rest, not because I’m happy with it…but to save my sanity.  I can’t imagine what this is going to be like when I get to the 90’s…

Spider-Man Complete Chronology Update 6

SpiderMan Chronicles

The juggling act between Amazing Spider-Man, Spectacular Spider-Man and Marvel Team-Up continues.  It’s been mostly straight forward with a few little anomalies.  For this update I’ll look at issues that land between Spectacular Spider-Man #11 and Spectacular Spider-Man #20.

I also need to go back and insert Howard The Duck #1 into the chronology.  I only recently acquired and read it.  While it is mostly a glorified cameo, with Spidey likely only appearing to boost sales, it is a bit of fun.

Spider-Man Complete Chronology Update 5

SpiderMan Chronicles

The web of continuity is getting a bit tangled now with the introduction of Spider-Man’s third regular monthly book The Spectacular Spider-Man.  After the cut the chronology slowly continues as I wiggle out from under the share volume of Secret Wars.  Covered in this update are issues falling between Amazing Spider-Man 163 and Spectacular Spider-Man 10.

Spider-Man Complete Chronology Update 4

SpiderMan Chronicles

Not quite back in the saddle, but being up to date on Secret Wars I can spend some time reading and organizing the endless Spidey books.  (Editor’s note: Jimmy, shouldn’t you be concentrating on your Secret Wars write ups?)  <mrburns>Up to date on Secret Wars…</mrburns>

After the break, a short update that takes place in-continuity after the original Clone Saga up through the debut of Jean DeWolff.  It’s mostly a back and forth of issues of Amazing Spider-Man and Marvel Team-Up, with one crossover issue of Marvel Two-In-One.  I also pushed an issue of What If? back a bit as it contains a continuity error.  (If you care about including those alternate universe tales.)  Also note that Spider-Man does not appear in Marvel Team-Up #35.

Spider-Man Complete Chronology Update 2

SpiderMan Chronicles

This update contains comics that fall chronologically between Amazing Spider-Man #103 and #152 (with a couple of relevant What If?’s tagged on the end).

One thing that you will notice more here than in previous updates is a lot of comments along the lines of “Immediately after issue X”.  There wasn’t much of this previously because I never had to pay as much attention to the flow of the books.  It was mostly just issues of Amazing with the odd injection.  But now, trying to interject the ongoing Marvel Team-Up, I need to be as clear as I can where things fall.

Spider-Man Complete Chronology Update 1

SpiderMan Chronicles

 

For this first official update I’ve added issues that fall in the timeframe between Amazing Spider-Man 51 and Marvel Team-Up 4.  The chronology notes are still pretty lightweight at this point as the bulk of the issues are Amazing.  The introduction of Marvel Team-Up in 1972 is the first time that Spider-Man is appearing in more than one title a month.  It adds some complexity, but the two titles are actually pretty tightly knit editorially, and the two series weave together nicely.
