Aimee and I have been working on this project the last couple of months to satisfy our desires to find out more about the types of appearances our favorite comic book characters have had. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

@barnabybones Glad you like it!! The characters were populated from the Marvel API and DC website. The issue data that matches up with the characters come from a variety of sources that were scraped and match closely with the Marvel Wikia,, and Variant covers, reprints, cover-only appearances, and all that stuff wouldn't count as an appearance.
