A Huge Marvel TPB Timeline Update!

Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars Omnibus Alex Ross Mike Zeck Jim Shooter Spider-Man Human Torch Thing Colossus She-Hulk Hawkeye Wolverine Captain America Wasp Cyclops Rogue Captain Marvel Monica Rambeau Nightcrawler Iron Man Hulk Marvel Cover hardcover hc comic bookI have some good news and some bad news today. First, the bad news – I won’t be posting a new review this week. But the reason why is actually the good news! This week I used the time I normally would have spent on a new review working on the Marvel Trade Paperback Timeline, which has now been updated to cover everything – and I do mean everything (so far as I can tell, at least) – that Marvel published from 1984 to 2004. In terms of Marvel continuity, that’s everything from the original Secret Wars to Avengers Disassembled! I also added a Table of Contents to the top of the page for easier navigation.

As always, any and all feedback is welcome. If you think I’ve made a mistake somewhere (which is more than likely, given the number of books now on the timeline), please let me know! Feel free either to leave a comment on this post or to send me an email at Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Dude,

    A huge thanks from european readers who do not have comics shops.

    I personnaly use amazon but you have to know exactly what you want since you can't open the book to check it's content.

    Juste a little question : Next update will be about pre-1984 or post-2004 ?

  2. No matter how many times I see the Secret Wars cover - Zeck or Ross - I just can't eat it up enough. God bless 80's Marvel.

  3. Thanks for the comment, Zintag! I'm really glad you're finding the timeline useful. I think the next major update will add both pre-1984 and post-2004 material, so there should be something for everyone!

    I love that Secret Wars cover too, Dan! But as for the series itself, it was a favorite of mine as a kid but I really can't stand it now, haha.

  4. Awesome, just keep 'em comin'

    Thanks from Germany for your astonishing work! Looking forward to your next update very much.

  5. Well done, Marc. At least it gets easier(?) from Disassembled on.

  6. Thanks for all the feedback! When I first started this project, I wasn't sure if anyone other than me would find it helpful, so it's good to hear what you guys think.

    And it actually gets harder after Disassembled since that's roughly the point when Marvel started collecting literally everything they publish -- but no worries, it'll still happen! Between that and getting into the Marvel Masterworks of the 1960s and '70s, I'm excited for future updates as well!

  7. Believe me Marc, SOMEONE needs to be working on it. I'm only surprised that there's so much international attention!

  8. Great work with the timeline. I know what I'll be doing at work later.
