It's hard to believe, but i originally envisioned that if i did have anyone reading my Marvel Timeline site, i would quietly put a year together, work out all the details, and then announce here where people would go and read it. Instead, i get comments as i'm working on the year, and i actually like that much better. Instant feedback and a real motivation to keep up a steady pace so that there is something new most days. Plus, i was doing it on the internet. I don't know what i was thinking. But if there are any lurkers out there who prefer to read it all at once, i'm calling 1986 done for now (with the usual caveats).
I said i'd finish 1986 in the winter, and judging by the endless snow that keeps coming down, i made that deadline, although just barely. But: 1986! The conclusion of Secret Wars II! X-Factor! The Mutant Massacre! The Raid on Avengers Mansion! And just a great year generally.
And thanks to everyone who does read and comment, whenever you do it. I appreciate your corrections, challenges, opinions, and recollections. I really did just start this project for myself, to get a better grip on my own collection, but it's so much more rewarding to get all your feedback and see that others see value in it.
I do intend to go directly to 1987 as promised, and i already know that there are some books that will wind up going back into 1986, so watch the Recent Updates> Pushback space if you are following along in real time.

Thank you! This is a fun project, and it's been great seeing these old comics again.
Congratulations Fnord12, 1986 was truly a wonderful year for comics. I will be here for 1987. Greetings from Spain
I think the amount of work you put into this project is unbelievable. Congratulations and thank you for making it this far.
