That's pretty much how I have it.

Curnow said he'd be posting his own timeline soon; dunno if he has yet.

He said he'd do it in August/September, once they're a year in. I'd imagine the only confusion at that point will be the Infestation Mini's placement.

Indeed, I will post a timeline after year one is complete, but this looks accurate. Infestation 1 & 2 happens before TMNT #7, after Donatello micro.

(though Infestation is extremely self contained.)

Cool, thanks for the heads up. Sounds like it takes those Mousers a little while to find Splinter and the guys, eh? It'd be neat to see Don hindering their efforts in his Micro.

The 2 orders for the events of mid/late January are due to a new, approved reading order by Editor Bobby Curnow. According to original editor's notes the April micro took place before the Casey micro and discussion at the time placed the Fugitoid micro in release order after #14. With hindsight Bobby has agreed that the story flows better if the micros are read before their respective thematic arc. There are no chronological problems with either order.

Cool, good job bud. I'd combine it with mine but I'd reach the max for a post real quick. If you just wanna keep your post edited, this thread's first page will be an even better reference for timeline stuff.

Thanks Nines! I'm sure between everyone in this thread we'll keep the timeline up to date and accurate as things go along (rather than face the massive task Dr Spengler did 25 years later!)

Lol yeah, as fun as it is to go back through old stuff and sort it all out, it's equally exciting to finally be ahead of the game on a TMNT book. Other than Tales (which doesn't really count) this is the first Turtles book I'll be able to read in proper order.

One awesome thing I realized from your time line though... the events that get things rolling from "18 months ago" take place in May 2010. The same real-world time that Mirage published their last book.

There's one thing I noticed here, I'm nitpicking really but I'm going to say it anyway.

in the Raphael Micro Leo orders the guys to only go out in pairs. Yet Michelangelo is out all alone in his micro. I guess it's reasonable to say he snuck out even though he doesn't mention any of this and no one seems to be looking for him.

I suppose it's because Leo's referring to their training runs, and Mike was just out at the movies and just used that excuse to be gone all day.

I'm quite sure Leo means they have to go out in pairs all the time. The point of his order is for them to be less vulnerable to their enemies when they go out, it doesn't really matter what they go out for.

It's ok, I'm content with the "Mikey snuck out" explanation.
It's not like he wouldn't.

Yeah, the way Michelangelo talked, he snuck out for the night to avoid his brothers, which explains why he's alone.
