“Young Miguel” backup stories
-Unlike in X-Men 2099, where i just included the X-Men and Doom issues, I put all of the Fall of the Hammer crossover in. Spidey was in enough of each part of it to make it necessary to make a coherent story, and it ties into the surrounding issues more than any other 2099 series. Also, if I didn’t include the entire storyline here, where would I? No other character shows up enough in each part to justify including the entire story. Plus, I have no interest in complete series binds of Ravage or Punisher. For Doom 2099, I’ll be putting a volume break around the story.
-Issue #21 was a fill in, plus #22 continues directly from #20.
-I cut out any stories not written by PAD in the annual and #25.
-I moved all of the “Young Miguel” stories to the end of volume 2 to try and help balance out the volume sizes.
-There are a few places where the Spidey/S-Man 2099 special are debated to be. Most people place it between #26-27, although PAD has recently stated that it goes back around #10-11 (although that doesn’t really fit as well). Since #26-27 was the only halfway decent breakpoint, and the special’s opening scene parallels the opening of #1, I opted to start volume 2 with that book.
-There’s no need to include anything extra for One Nation Under Doom. S-Man doesn’t really tie in that directly, and sort of has his own storyline going continuously.
-I put #45-46 (the non PAD issues) in the 2099: World of Tomorrow book. #44 ends with a semi-decent walking into the sunset moment. Not perfect, but a better ending than #46.Spider-Man 2099,
