    When we have the time and technology to do so, we'll try and get the appearances in some sort of timeline continuity wise as well as release wise.

    The majority of the appearances in the forum are listed for year of release, but sometimes I can be slightly slack on that front.

    Yes, I know of that, but trying to place books/ stories in order. i.e. where do the Rom apperances go? before or after Mac's death? even though they caame out the same year of his death. If i's after his death then dose it go before or Spider man Ann 7?

    S'okay, Alpha Rider. We all know that even the great Canada Post isn't the world's best employer.

    Tim Hortons is. (And I don't even work there!)

    Canada Post MIGHT be one of the last things TRULY Canadian. That is something to be proud of.

    I fell off my chair in shock about a month ago when I read that Tim Horton's, Hudson's Bay, CCM and many other 'Canadian' institutes are not owned by entities in this country anymore. They are all part of worldwide mega-corporations.

    My mail delivery guy is actually friendly. He waves and says hello if I am within ear shot of him.

    I've considered putting one together. I've sorted my Alpha Flight collection into what I think of as "the" order, as best I can. I could just post a list, but I wanted to do something more, and give reasons why.

    I do have a section for that in my reviews, but you'd have to hope I'd reviewed a particular issue.

    The Rom issues go before Mac's death, because he's alive in the issue. I usually put them as close as possible to release date, but those particular issues are between #s 1 and 2 in my collection (there are quite a lot there, since #1 was in the 'past').
    The reason is, they're still calling 'Guardian' 'Vindicator', but Marrina's part of the group.

    Therein is another issue; breaking the issues up into parts and sections and flashbacks and thus.
    It's easier to do with the initial run where it's broken up into parts, but around the Lee/Niceiza era's it'll get extremely messy....

    Once the holiday season is over I'll toy with the idea of resurrecting some kind of reading club and divvying chunks of issues out to people to list for character appearances and time periods.
