This only means they published issues in the wrong order or that the order of those issues is not important to the overall story-arc (for example, think of the many Spider-man Secret Invasion, X-Men Secret Invasion, etc) and can be read in mostly any order inside the big story.

This is personal opinion, i guess. I prefer reading this kind of events in the order they were published - and that tends to be the correct reading order most of the time.

On your reading order pictures, the first difference is number 0 of Blackest night, which is just a "teaser" that came out 3 MONTHS before the actual story begun. Hardly wrong positioning. Didnt check all the others, but again, for me, if it doesn't show Blackest Night 4 ahead of Blackest Night 3, and keeps Blackest Night Superman in order, Blackest Night Titans in order, etc, its fine and much easier to set up.

I can see where you're both coming from, as I'm in between. When I make my reading lists, the first thing I do is sort by publish date in a default 'temp' list. Then after a bit of research, I can move them into their own list and sort by position and correct any errors. I guess it all comes down to how anal you want to get about it. I prefer the top of the charts if I can reach 'em. = )

Anal.....that's the word for it, man!

I've seen extremist chronologists who dissect out each panel and discuss and then judge which issue happened before which. I used to make such lists, and in the end, I realized that it doesn't matter much. The last event I read was Shadowland, and I could pretty much skip all the tie-ins.

So, basically if you wish to read and enjoy, then forkicks' method is the best. If you get a kick out of meticulously arranging irrelevant nifty details, who's to stop you..! :P
