This one's out tomorrow, and I'm looking forward to adding it to the others on my reference shelf!

Of course, I have to wait until the end of the month for my DCBS order to ship, but it'll be worth it.

The latter is the missing page from the Thor Index which will be added to later printings of that index. Is it safe to assume that later printings of the Avengers book will omit this page, as it'll be unneeded once later printings of the Thor volume are readily available?

So is everything after New Avengers Finale new material?

Other than the Thor page, yes.

The Avengers Log entry is a particularly fun read because it has extensive errata. I'd love to see a Handbook index noting the various errata in those books.

Kinda disappointed to see that none of the Spider-Man chronology issues I brought up were fixed (missing issues, the confusion between Spider-Man Family and Amazing Spider-Man Family, the mysterious 2010 Moon Knight series).
Also there is a discrepancy with the placement of Avengers 314-318 in Spider-Man's chronology. In the original Amazing Spider-Man index these issues were placed between PPTSS 162 and ASM 330. When the Spider-Man index TPB came out they were placed between ASM 339 and Impossible Man Summer Vacation. In this index it says his appearance in Avengers 314 takes place after PPTSS 162 but his next appearance after Avengers 318 says Impossible Man Summer Vacation. Very confusing.

I think the "mysterious 2010 Moon Knight series" is Vengeance of the Moon Knight.

Oh, OK. Thanks for clarifying.

One thing I keep meaning to ask. The last few trades have said that "several" villains introduced in the Hostess ads have since appeared in regular Marvel comics. I know of Icemaster. Who else has made the transition over?

A bunch of them, mainly ones that fought Spider-Man, appeared in the Elektro story in that one Fin Fang Four one-shot.

I've been considering tracking down the comic that features these guys. I somehow doubt another writer will use these guys again. But hey, I could be wrong and someone at the Marvel offices is right now penning a story that has Legal eagle, June Jutsu, and Chairman as part of the newest version of the Masters of Evil
