Looking forward to it. Getting closer to hopefully featuring new titles assuming the series survives.

By the way, Amazon mentions that the Iron Man portions of the index will get a trade in April. Will there be any new material (I'm guessing that addenda will be incorporated), and will it share the same endpoint as the core title?

Errata will be corrected hopefully; uncertain as to the endpoint being the same as the core title, though I suspect it will be.

We had a delay, not least because as we got closer to the present and the likes of Wolverine decided to guest star everywhere made trying to track the chronologies very time consuming. Sorry.

Oh, Wolvie. You are the most overused character. How can people not be sick of him already. Anyway, I truly appreciate the effort to track his absurd chronology.

So sorry to see this go...

Stuart,

I think ToddCam believes that the Index has been canceled. I understand that maybe its just on hiatus and will be back shortly. Still I am enjoying it as well as the handbooks and want to thank the whole handbook team for all their hard work

No, we're not cancelled, just taking a breather as we prepare for round 2. And thanks for the thanks.

Ah, UXM #514 is shown on the cover in the solicit, UXM #495 made it onto the cover but the first issue in the X-Men series indexed is #490!

I thought the comic covers shown on the front cover were matching the first issue of the series indexed within. I suppose not for this issue, but it's puzzling how it could happen. What's up with that?

By the way, I found no fewer than FOUR amazing things in this issue that I simply did not know about. Well, they are minor details, but it excited me to learn them, seeing as how they were from four issues that I really thought I knew everything about.... This is exactly what these issues are supposed to be: a reference for those who seek a level of detail unattainable anywhere else from a reliable source close to the origin, perfect! I'm thrilled!

Simply put, it was something we overlooked. We were so busy trying to scour entries within to spot any mistakes needing corrected that none of us even thought to consider there was such a silly error on the cover until we'd already gone to print. I think it's the same kind of psychological thing that happens whenever someone else proofs your work, spots really obvious mistakes and then you kick yourself wondering how you could have missed that - it's because your mind knew what should have been there, and so your subconscious just assumed it was and didn't process the info coming from your eyes.

Aaaand the No-Prize goes to rplss. Crud -- I was hoping it might slip under everyone's radar forever. ;)

Ah well, at least it took the internet three whole days to notice our nice big goof.

Reverting to name-calling now, Jeph?
