The Continuity Pages is a massive project that seeks to organize comics according to continuity, rather than simply by title and number.
This especially has advantages in the current era, with its plethora of mini-series, specials, and parallel ongoing series starring the same family of characters. But it’s also useful given how often series are relaunched. A lot of times, it’s hard to know even where to start with a character, or how all of this material fits together. The Continuity Pages solves that by putting everything in order, almost as if it’s a single meta-series, with everything incorporated in the most logical, optimal way possible.
Even with older series, there are annuals, reprint issues, stories that occurred out of sequence, stories that occurred in other titles, and various collections. The Continuity Pages can handle all of this.
This is more than just an another comic-book database. It’s a study of narrative and its development, allowing readers to see this development in a clear and objective fashion.
The Continuity Pages originally began in the earliest days of Sequart, before the site had any writer other than myself. The Continuity Pages quickly became the site’s most popular feature. (In fact, the site’s first dedicated domain, separate from my personal website, was ContinuityPages.com in recognition of this.) The Continuity Pages kept growing and remained a popular feature until the Sequart website crashed in November 2008. When the site returned, it was missing the Continuity Pages, and we’ve been working on getting it going again, stealing time here and there, for the last couple years or so.
This is a massive project and should currently be considered to be in a “beta” version, but we thought it was finally time to pull back the curtain and let you see what we’ve been cooking up. This new incarnation of The Continuity Pages will continue to grow over time, as its original incarnation did. We hope you’ll like it all over again.
