I agree with what (I think) Fragsel is saying; that is, A) if a flashback is new storytelling info (either newly described events or new interpretation/context for previously described events) then it needs character appearances. This leads to B) these flashback character appearances must be listed on the character's appearances list, because if someone is using that list to only read stuff that happened with that character, they could lose important information through the lack of their flashback appearances.
It's not the first time when You understood me perfectly. Thanks.
could you list them as flashback only appearances and have them not count for the order of the character?
Imeco: personal question: What are You going to do with that info? Will You skip those appearances? I just want to understand why someone interested in character history is not interested in his past backstory (because all this discussion is about really important, revealing, flashbacks)
To follow up: I've just finished Daredevil 43 and it's the greatest example of what I mean (fate?). first 4 pages presents flashback. it's matt recalling how Karen left him between DD 42 & 43. Karen doesn't appear outside of that flashback, so if she's not on the list, or she's tagged as flashback that part of her story is missed. I know I know:
Please let me know when you find someone who's only interested in reading appearances of Changeling. He sounds like an odd cat.
But this time I can imagine someone who don't like DD but love Ghost Rider, and Karen is part of his story, so someone might be checking her.
