This timeline, when finished, should provide a chronological overview of the comic, regarding Plots and historical data. Dave Kellett shared a short timeline, which provides a lot of useful information. He also made a more accurate and revised timeline for the omnibus print of act one[1], which won't be included here unless it's available publicly. A new and revised timeline was shared for the book of Act 2.
