The Marvels Project largely takes place in the past, but features at least one character who pops up during Secret Avengers, which largely occurs between the second through fourth arcs of Act 3.  The three Fear Itself stories lead directly into each other, and lead to roughly lead to Captain America #1/Winter Soldier #1/Captain America and Bucky #620 for Act 4)

The Wishlist

This is more or less the exact opposite of the Marvel Unlimited Archives page. Something where I can map/list the comics I need in order to do some of my posts.  Consider this a heavy Work In Progress, because this post is going to be all over the place (and will be edited semi-frequently).

No More MDCUO

Not much of a fancy announcement here, but I figured I'd make this post anyway: After launching the site 3 years ago today, I've decided to call it quits with the MDCUO.

Rather, the name at least. It's been LONG overdue really. The name was always more or less a placeholder, since I couldn't think of anything good at the time. And now it's doubly overdue, considering the Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited hasn't existed in quite a few months now. Changing the site to something like the Marvel Unlimited Omnibus doesn't really have that nice of a nice ring to it, either.

I've also been considering the 'omnibus' part of the site, as well. Looking over a some of the posts, I think there may be a few that force the idea of larger bodies or work, as opposed to simply spotlighting content. This isn't to say I'll stop doing 'omnibus'-styled posts, but I think I'll likely be posting more 'trade' style posts as well in the future (and maybe do some deleting/reposting of some of my previous posts).

So with all of that said...the old name doesn't work. So I decided to change it to Marvel Then! Something shorter, simpler and to the point without being limiting. Since we're in the 'NOW!' era of Marvel, I figured it would make sense that this site focuses on the 'THEN!' that lead us here.

No new post for now, though I may have a little something up later this evening...

Cheers,
Matt Smith
