Re: Ex Machine Timeline

I just recently started reading Vaughan's "Ex Machina" series, and am quite fond of it. Naturally, this lead into a timeline. This one was easy in the sense that the dates are specified in the issues, it was just a bit tedious ordering it all. Anyway, enjoy.

EDIT:

Timeline is complete and up-to-date through issue #25, and a tentative placement for #26 based off the solicitation.

Re: Ex Machine Timeline

I know vintsukka's been doing one, and has been posting it in the Ex Machina thread, and I've linked to another one on the Cabal before.

I got a chance to check those out. The one over on Vaughan's board hasn't been updated in ages, so that ones filed under "bunk". Vint's is pretty recent, and actually helped me make a few corrections to this one. Eh, I guess we could keep both depending on format preferences...? Or not...you're the mod, you decide.

I say keep both, and you two can work together to keep it refined.

One thing I'd change is place #25 pg. 13-16 earlier. In Special #2 it was pretty much implied that Pherson died in the explosion on May 8 2001 (or at least everyone thinks so), so his appearance in #25 would have to be earlier than that (but obviously some time after his origin on March 11 2001).

Otherwise, as I said earlier, good job.

Hey man, are you still updating this? #26 came out ages ago.

Pg. 1-4 of #26 happen on 9/11, I'd venture a guess that it's between those from issues 11 and 9, but not sure. It might get clearer later in the arc. The bulk of the issue, pg. 5-22, happen on Aug 14 2003.

Agreed and adjusted.

Yeah, I had actually updated the one on my computer, but forgot to update the one here. Besides, #27 has been delayed for a few months, so I wasn't in any big rush. Anyway, its updated now.
