Grateful kudos to all the previous versions of indexes out there, from the George Olshevsky unofficial indexes of the 1970s to the most recent Official ones that ran from 2009 - 2012. They have been invaluable starting points for the creation of this application. Many of the synopsises included for various series were taken from the Official Indexes (why recreate the wheel?), and my grateful acknowledgement to the diligent hard work by the Official Index team, many of whom I've had the pleasure of working with over the past few years.

Thanks to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe series (of which I eventually became a writer), for much inspiration on the minute details of the Marvel Universe.

Thanks to Northern Host ( and Rob Scarcella Jr for much advice on the move from local Access database to MySQL, helping with that transition, building the initial program website and generally supporting the program throughout.
