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…

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 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.

There are some spoilers if you’ve missed out on the last 50 years of Spider-Man and are just getting started.

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.

There are some spoilers if you’ve missed out on the last 50 years of Spider-Man and are just getting started.
