This Week In Marvel History
Marvel comics has opened up a series of APIs to their complete publishing history database. Providing this data to comics fans is very exciting, but with so much data available, it can be hard to find interesting information if you are not looking for something specific.
This Week In Marvel History is a web app that shows the user notable Marvel titles released historically corresponding to a specific date. Comics release weekly, so a spread of 7 days is necessary to ensure that there will always be something interesting returned.
The user selects a month and date, and all #1 titles released historically within a week of the inputted date will be shown.
- Marvel's API is free and open, though limited to 3000 calls per day.
- DOM manipulation with jQuery
- Responsive design and styling with SASS, jQuery
- HTML forms for user to submit the requested date
