Texas Chainsaw Massacre timeline

This is my attempt at a DIrishB-ized timeline for the continuity of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. Two movies, one novelization, and nine comic stories told over eighteen issues.
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (movie)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (movie)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (novelization)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Special (Avatar comic)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Grind (3-issue Avatar comic)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Fearbook (Avatar comic)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (6-issue Wildstorm comic)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Cut! (Wildstorm comic)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: By Himself (Wildstorm comic)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: About a Boy (Wildstorm comic)
  • New Line Cinema's Tales of Horror (Wildstorm comic)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Raising Cain (3-issue Wildstorm comic)
Some date placements of comics come from promotional descriptions. It's unclear when the first three pages of The Grind #1 occurs, so I've just placed them immediately before the story begins. The third issue of Raising Cain gives the date as Spring 2007, but the story seems to continue on directly from the end of issue #2, which was Spring 2001, so I've gone with the 2001 date unless someone points out something I misunderstood.
