Default Timeline of the Comics?

So, I know this probably sounds like a huge drag, but, because I read all the comics for the first time in like... 2 days, in anticipation of SotTR, I completely have all the arcs and events mixed up in my head. Could someone make a short, clear timeline of all the important stuff that occurs in the comics? Like, I know we only have the Beginning comic pre-TR2013, but what comes between TR2013 and Rise, and what comes after Rise and before Shadow?

The Ten Thousand Immortals: July 23 - September 3
Season of the Witch: September 3 - to late September

Year 2: Age 22 - 2016
Secret and Lies: Early January - mid February
Queen of Serpents: early June – mid July
Rise of the Tomb Raider: late October – mid November

Year 3: Age 23 - 2017
Spore: Mid January - late January
Choice and Sacrifice: Late January - Mid February
Survivor's Crusade - Part I: Late May - June Year 3

Year 4: Age 24 - 2018

So, forgetting years because CD and EM decided to make that very weird (only thing certain is TReboot being on 2013) the timeline is:

Tomb Raider - the Beginning
Tomb Raider
The Ten Thousand Immortals (novel)
Season of the Witch
Truths and Lies
Queen of Serpents
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Spore
Choice and Sacrifice
Survivor's Crusade
Inferno
Path to the Apocalypse (novel)
Shadow of the Tomb Raider

I swear we had this conversation . Perhaps it was just part of another discussion and not a separate thread before.

Anyway, the posts above pretty much have it. Just to say that the events of the game-comics and novels don't necessarily match real time. The devs have said there's one year between TR'13 and Rise, and again they've said approximately one year between Rise and Shadow. This doesn't work, especially the timeframe between Rise and Shadow as in the Survivor's Crusade arc we're shown Lara taking almost a year off just to travel and train.

Yeah, we talked about this in the post-RotTR comics thread.

And it's kinda of a shame it doesn't work within the timeframe they gave us: if they had just made dates a bit more vague after TReboot like they said they wanted, there would be nothing contradictory in the timeline.
