VH1 story chronology reading order

Post by SwiftMann »

Years ago, I ran into this post claiming to be a "chronological list that shows in what continuity order to read VALIANT" that initially seemed to be decent, but quickly just turns into a publishing date order.

So, as I read all of VH1 over the past 12-14 months, I tried to track the issues and map out an accurate reading order by story chronology that interwove 1990s stories and 4001 stories. There are only three books on the list that I split up because the story forces it. The rest I picked when it made the most sense to read if there were multiple time periods. I even weaved in the preview issues, TPB inserts, and new HC stories. Everything except Captain Johner & The Aliens cause that's got nothing to do with nothing.

Valiant made this pretty easy at the start, but by the end things definitely get hairy. I compared notes with the Valiant Comics Timeline and even the Valiant Wizard special. While I do have a small handful of major differences, we are fairly well lined up. The biggest question I have is some of the stuff at the very it. That's pretty much a crapshoot for the last six months of publishing. And where exactly to stick X-O/Iron Man since that may be the launch of VH2.

So, here's the title rundown. I have a spreadsheet with dates and length of time each issue takes, but that won't format well here. Happy to hear any thoughts.

Dear SwiftMann,

Just found this site and your post/guide here and I'm impressed, its a wonderful work, thank you so much!

Tho I have 1 question: why was Ninjak #0 and #00 placed there, so early, separately from his own series?
