Right, there have been talks of this recently, and in fact as far back as I can remember we've dabbled with it.
It's often been asked for a timeline of Alpha appearances, breaking up issues into flashback sequences and multiple-story issues.
I know there are sites such as http://www.marvunapp.com/master/mastguid.htm
and http://chronologyproject.com/ but they tend to be per character and it'd be interesting to see our thoughts and reasoning as to what goes where.
Back on the old mailing list and board when we were doing our re-reading 'club' we hashed out a rough order of:
Now I know at the time there was an issue over the ROM placement, and there have been a lot of comics published since we discussed this that would slot in, in places (Wolverine First Class, for example) and the placing of Wolverine #144 & Hulk 180-181 would need to be moved in light of Wolverine Origins / X-Men Legacy : Original Sin (although that conflicts with First Class...), but these were how we placed things in reading AF #1-2.AF 5.5
-1 (Flashback issue)
(Volume 2) #1 (Flashback period)
Hulk 180, 181
First Flight Special
Gt Sized X-Men #1 (I just read the Wolvie recruiting page and
moved on with this one.)
X-Men 120, 121
Hulk Annual #8
Contest Of Champions v1
Machine Man #18 / X-Men 139, 140 - Simulataneously
Hulk 272, 273
Alpha Flight #1
Marvel 2-In-1 83, 84
Marvel 2-in-1 Ann 7
Rom 56, 57
Alpha Flight #2
Is this worth restarting?
