Notes

  • The Beginning of Tomorrow TPB was originally going to be called "New Horizons" [1] (TBOT was originally a generic banner for all the post-ZH #0 issues, in the same vein as "One Year Later" or "World War Hulk: Aftersmash" more recently)
  • The earliest reports suggested that it would "cover the books from the Zero issues to the end of the White Triangle story" [2]. This was abandoned when they realised how huge it would be.
