Defiant story chronology reading order

Post by SwiftMann »

Spent the last 10 days reading the entire Defiant run and realized I don't care for any versions of reading orders I've stumbled over. So, after WAY too much time analyzing and re-reading and comparing appearance pop-ups and working in a couple "it just reads better here" decisions, this is my suggested reading order. And, frankly, Dogs of War and Prudence & Caution could just be skipped completely.

Assumption 1: The dates in Good Guys #1, 1.5, & 2 are incorrect as #2 has to happen after 1/20/94 and #1.5 is "just before #2, not 11/13/93, and the kids didn't wait two months between #1 & 2 to meet up.

Assumption 2: Despite the Manhattan bridge reference in Charlemagne #4 and the Schism logo on Dogs of War #5, most of Dogs of War and Prudence & Caution take place well after the events of Schism.
