Updated for Archer and Armstrong #22 and Armor Hunters - Bloodshot #1 (AH-B #1 was a pain in the butt to break up and place).

Updated for X-O Manowar #27 and Armor Hunters - Harbinger #1.


I think I've placed the AH-Harbinger pages correctly, in terms of chronology. I'm going to go back and re-read the mini and all the tie-in stuff to it in a couple months when its done and make any necessary changes then. But I think that fits as it currently is.

Updated for Archer & Armstrong #23, Unity #10, and Armor Hunters #3.

The crossover aspect of Armor Hunters in relation to the side stories (AH-Harbingers, AH-Bloodshot, Unity, X-O) is pretty challenging, specifically in regards to how Unity and AH-Blooshot fit into the main AH series. But, I'm up for the challenge. Its just that the events (Harbinger Wars and Armor Hunters) make the timeline a lot longer due to the necessity of dividing up issues by pages. No big deal, though.

Updated for Armor Hunters - Aftermath #1 and Bloodshot #24.

Armor Hunters - Aftermath #1 confirmed the AH event as happening in 2014, based on the mention that "its been three years since there was anything worth trying to glimpse", referring to the Kennedy Space Center, which downsized majorly during 2011.

Updated for Unity #0. Was able to use specific dates due to the events of the 1918 World Series between Boston and Chicago playing over the radio (specifically the mentions of events in Games 5 and 6).

Should you be counting those Justin Jordan parody scenes like "Bar Talk"? I don't think those are meant to be in continuity anymore than XO Owly.

Awesome job keeping track of all this, though. I dont know how you do it.

That's a good point, and something I've wondered about as well. I will say the Bar Talk short was more in line with the Valiant tone than the Owly series, though I, too, wondered about its canonicity. I just added it from a completest point of view until its confirmed as non-canon (though I agree it most likely isn't).

Updated for Bloodshot #25, Eternal Warrior - Days of Steel #1, and The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage #3.

Bloodshot #25 had a couple stories that were easy to place ("The Heart of the Matter" and "The Gang's All Here"), but the three other stories ("Training Day", "The Glitch", "Protocol") are tough to place without more info. No years were given, nor any dialogue that really helped place it specifically. "The Glitch" did make mention of fighting in Libya, but nothing specific.

If you have any interest in seeing any of those, let me know and I'll happily provide links.
I'd definitely be interested in seeing some of your other work.
