Celebrate a fantastic seventy years of Marvel Comics!
Beginning in January 2009 Marvel begins a year long celebration of the House of Ideas biggest birthday yet!
Big new projects, themed variants including wraparound variant covers from the top artists, special cornerboxes on all titles and exciting event storylines beginning with the conclusion of Secret Invasion and the start of Ultimatum followed by Dark Reign, War of Kings, Messiah Complex and more!
Here are just some of the highlights for January 2009
The end is here! Or, is it a new beginning? Massive climatic disturbances are wreaking havoc with the planet "underwater volcanic eruptions, tidal waves crashing over whole cities and snowstorms burying entire countries" and even the assemblage of the Ultimate U’s mightiest is no match for this worldwide destruction!
Featuring Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Ultimates, the Hulk and more, find out whose lives are at stake in this defining moment of truth for the Ultimate Universe. Brought to you by award-winning scribe Jeph Loeb and superstar artist David Finch, this is the must-have book that will set the stage in the Ultimate U for years to come.
Ultimate Fantastic Four
Ultimatum hits the Baxter Building! As the team is torn apart in more ways than one, the fate of the Fantastic Four rests on the rocky shoulders of the Thing. Ben Grimm steps up and embarks on a hero’s journey to the very center of the Earth to find the one man who can help his imperiled teammates. And that's just the beginning...
The unthinkable has happened as the X-Men find themselves reeling from the devastating events of Ultimatum. As Xavier’s pupils prepare to retaliate, one X-Man is conspicuously left off the roster. As her time as part of Weapon X is counted against her, how can Rogue prove her loyalty? How far will she go? And just what is her mysterious connection to Vindicator of Alpha Flight?! His identity finally revealed!!!
An unwelcome caller pays a visit to the Parker household in the form of Eddie Brock, the former host to the sinister Venom symbiote! Blaming Peter for his loss of the symbiote, Eddie will stop at nothing to regain it. As the situation comes unglued with the untimely arrival of Gwen Stacy, it’s Ultimate Venom versus Ultimate Carnage as War of the Symbiotes comes to its crashing conclusion! Plus: More on the mysterious Beetle and his mission for the “master”!
Adam Legend of the Blue Marvel
An unstoppable super-villain attacks New York City--and the Mighty Avengers fall before him! Where did Anti-Man come from? And who can stop his overwhelming rampage?! Now Iron Man races to find the only man who’s ever defeated Anti-Man-- THE BLUE MARVEL…a hero the world hasn’t seen since 1961! Will Tony Stark uncover the truth behind Blue Marvel’s disappearance…and will Blue Marvel ever recover from it? Kevin Grevioux (NEW WARRIORS) and Mat Broome (The End League) join forces to create Marvel’s newest powerhouse super hero!
The titanic team-up of the year continues! With the time-tossed Cap and Namor held by Tony Stark and his Mighty Avengers, Toro and Bucky are off-the-grid under the protective wing of the New Avengers… while the Torch finds himself in the presence of the most powerful threat to the Marvel Universe, whose identity is revealed in this issue!
Part two of this smashing three-parter pits Bucky Barnes, the new Captain America, against his own past as the Winter Soldier, and one of Steve Rogers deadliest foes... as the remnants of the Cold War creep into the states, searching for a secret weapon that only Cap can stop them from getting their hands on. But is that really what's happening, or is it all a trap? Find out here - by Brubaker and Luke Ross!

Daredevil, however, is unaware that Captain America is also investigating…
Matt comes face to face with one of the deadliest and most alarming new characters he’s ever encountered--Lady Bullseye! Plus…who is the mysterious old man at the center of the in-fighting within the Hand…and how is he linked to Matt Murdock's past? It’s Part 3 of “Lady Bullseye,” by the award-winning creative team of Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark!!
In a decimated future where America is dominated by super-villains, old man Logan lives out his days, but as far as he’s concerned, WOLVERINE died fifty years ago with the rest of the super heroes. Now he’s on a cross-country journey with the blind archer HAWKEYE to deliver a secret package to Hawkeye’s contacts on the east coast. But dinosaurs and earthquakes might just finish them off for good! Plus: the identity of the PRESIDENT is revealed! MARK MILLAR and STEVE MCNIVEN continue their post-apocalyptic epic for the ages! Part 4 (of 8).
THIS IS IT!! The truly shocking conclusion to THE comic event hit of the year. And you are not prepared for what will happen in these pages. Heroes will rise, heroes will fall...and the Marvel Universe will, and we're not joking, NEVER be the same again!

About the Complete Marvel Chronology
The Complete Marvel Chronology (CMC) is version 2.0 of the Marvel Chronology (MC).
The MC was created by cyager69 aka Chuck, who uploaded Marvel comics beginning with Fantastic Four 001 (Nov 61) through to the issues published in Jun 1997.
When Chuck was unable to continue the uploads I took over the MC and uploaded the remainder of the issues through to December 2008. Additional uploads added various titles not cover-dated with a specific month (the 'Decades' uploads) and seven Fill packs added new scans for issues missing when the original uploads were done for the 70's through to the 90's.
With none of Chuck's original uploads online, the decision was to either upload the original version of 1961-1996 or go with a brand new, full version incorporating the missing genres, such as romance, western and humour, and including the imprints which Chuck intended to upload following the completion of the MC.
The CMC will cover Marvel's entire seventy year history. At present I am uploading the years beginning with 1960 and these uploads will continue right through to December 1996. After that I have not finalised what will follow, but the likelihood will be that I go back to upload the 39-59 period, and then upload the 97-09 period again. When I do upload version 2.0 of 97-09 there will be many additions and many new scans.
News and Notes
With 1963 uploaded and the CMC underway here is the first upload for 2009, continuing the uploads of the newest titles.
The way I uploaded years in the MC was to start with the 00 folder, with all the titles released without cover-dates (which must be a phrase that needs altering, the comics haven't had a date on the cover in ages!), but with 2009 still in progress there may still be titles yet to be released which will go into the 00 upload so from this year the 00 upload will be done at the end of the year.
The scan of Anita Blake Laughing Corpse contains two pages (11 and 13) which are identical. A search for a better copy hasn't resulted in a better copy.
If anyone has the comic can you confirm what needs correcting?
The next upload will be the whole of 1964, in two parts, sometime this coming weekend.
Enjoy today's comics, please keep seeding, and see you at the weekend!
Books used as research material in completing the CMC include -
Marvel Chronicle - Tom DeFalco
Marvel Vault - Roy Thomas and Pete Sanderson
Tales of the Implosion - Tom Lammers
Standard Catalogue of Comics 5th Edition
Thanks to all the scanners, editors and uploaders who make the scans available.
Thanks for the support of all those who seed the CMC.
