isn't Ciudad Barranquila on the site of present day Barranquila, on the northern coast of Colombia?

and since we are talking Latin America, Guatemala needs an entry.

Great Map.

Ciudad Barranquilla is centred on Buenos Aires.

Now I've seen the map full-size can I make a suggestion for the next iteration?  Al's Baby is in the Historical section of Mega-City One.  Seeing as Chicago appears on the map perhaps Al's Baby should be in a historical section for The Cursed Earth instead.  I don't think we've ever seen the 22nd century version, but Chi-Town would probably count as Cursed Earth, even if it is still a city (a lá Las Vegas).

Oh Grud! I was being super-dense. I've always had this mental block for Chicago where I get it muddled up with Manhatten, so I got confused by your post and thought that you were saying Chi-Town was set in Las Vegas.

All through my life I keep having to re-learn Chicago's actual location - plus the correct spelling of resteraunt restaurant.

Nah - I was saying that in the 22nd century, Chicago / Chi-Town would be in the Cursed Earth, like Las Vegas (as we saw in 2100's Cursed Earth).  Stirling work on the map, btw.

Here you go, Sheridan [still best viewed magnified in a new tab]:



I've moved the boxes around a bit for more visual balance, and added Hershey to the Barranquilla box. The gap in the bottom right I think could do some justice to the idea of crossover stories - but in a limited way. Maybe folk can help here, but I know there are tenuous connections to at least the following:

- Fr1day
- Strontium Dog
- Flesh
- The ABC Warriors
- Savage
- Nemesis

What else could I put there, and what would be a good title for that section?

Excellent!

Both Flesh Book I and Nemesis the Warlock Book I take place in and around London (because Old One Eye's fossils are discovered when a line of the London Underground is being excavated, and the aliens are hidden in the forbidden levels - i.e. the London Underground again - specifically Waterloo - before being shipped away from Termight).
