Comics Ate My Brain

Where are the Marvel nerd pages?

Filed under: meta, questions — Tom Bondurant @ 9:54 pm
Writing annotations for Trinity was a whole lot easier thanks to the wealth of DC nerd-sites on the Internets. The Unauthorized Chronology of the DC Universe is an excellent, well-reasoned, and fairly comprehensive timeline of post-Crisis DC. The DCU Guide indexes most characters’ appearances, both currently and in the Golden and Silver Ages. Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics focuses on the company’s publishing history.

However, for a company which made Eliot R. Brown a legend among nerds, I haven’t been able to find comparable resources for the Marvel Universe. If I want to know how Dr. Strange’s Defenders appearances dovetailed with his various solo series, where do I go? Last week I was curious to see whether the Essential Spider-Woman books covered all of the character’s major appearances, but I’m unaware of a Marvel counterpart to the DCU Guide. I’d love to see month-by-month charts of Marvel’s output over the past seventy years, but again, no luck.

So what about it, True Believers? And don’t tell me it’s because you actually have lives….

  1. Excellent question. I've been wondering that myself! I've found great Spider-Man pages, and very little of anything else. 😦
