Subj: Re: NB : it is uncertain if it is in continuity because Spider-Man Blue contradicts the chronology of the stories of Lee & Romita set during the same period.

And it not only contradicts the sequence of events, but also various important details of the stories it purports to retell (e.g. at her first meeting with Peter, Mary Jane is shown not wearing her iconic black top and pants, but a blue dress). Loeb described the series as his love-letter to Gwen Stacy, and it shows in various attempts to make Gwen and Peter out to be closer than they actually were at that point in their saga. This kiss with a bare-chested Peter Parker was apparently meant to imply that the two were starting to have sex at the time (while of course as things stand in the real continuity (after Sins Past) Peter and Gwen never had sex. But the differences from the main continuity are big enough to rate this story as non-canonic.
