Marvel Universe Crossover Reading Orders

As a supplement to the Trade Paperback Timelines, I’ve also created a series of reading orders for individual crossovers or storylines, with complete, issue by issue guides to what order things happen in – and what books you can find those issues reprinted in. Because some events are small enough to fit into single volume collections, they are displayed below italicised and asterisked, with links leading directly to the books for purchase.

They are listed below in the same order as they appear in the main timeline:

12: The Early Eighties

13: The Mid-Eighties

14: The Late Eighties

15: The Early Nineties

16: The Mid-Nineties

17: The Late Nineties

18: The Early Noughts

Vertigo Timelines

Technically speaking, Vertigo is not a universe, but an imprint. Many of its most famous titles, notably Preacher, Transmetropolitan and Fables, do not exist in its shared universe. But enough of them do to make possible the construction of the lead timeline in this section:

The Vertigo Universe, part 1: The Pre-Vertigo Years
The Vertigo Universe, part 2: Imprinted
Most of the original Vertigo characters originated as DC Universe characters, and only later became Vertigo characters. Some have shuttled back and forth, others have spent time in Vertigo then become part of the mainstream universe again. With rare exceptions, this timeline lists only their appearances in Vertigo collections. Occasional exceptions are made for appearances of Vertigo characters in mainstream DC comics (predominately cast members from Swamp Thing, Hellblazer and Sandman).
The Complete Neil Gaiman’s Sandman Reading Order
A more detailed reading order for the Vertigo Universe’s single best series.

Some of the other titles published by the Vertigo imprint are independent universes which are also sufficiently complicated as to deserve their own timelines:

The Fables Universe
Including Fables, Jack of Fables, and assorted spin-offs.

The Expanded Preacher Universe
Including Preacher and related works by Garth Ennis

Crossover Reading Orders

As a supplement to the Trade Paperback Timelines, I’ve also created a series of reading orders for individual crossovers, with complete, issue by issue guides to what order things happen in – and what books you can find those issues reprinted in.

These are divided up according to which universe they are relevant to:

Marvel Universe Crossover Reading Orders

Marvel Ultimate Universe Crossover Reading Orders

Miscellaneous DC Universe Reading Orders


The Marvel Ultimate Universe 1: Beginnings

Prequels:

Ultimate Iron Man, vol.1
Reprints Ultimate Iron Man #1-5 (March 2005 – February 2006).
Later stories in the Ultimate Universe have cast doubt on the canonicity of this mini-series, and it may be out of continuity.
Ultimate Iron Man, vol.2
Reprints Ultimate Iron Man II #1-5 (December 2007 – July 2008).
Later stories in the Ultimate Universe have cast doubt on the canonicity of this mini-series, and it may be out of continuity.
Ultimate Daredevil & Elektra
Reprints Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra #1-4 (October 2002 – February 2003).
Ultimate Elektra: Devil’s Due
Reprints Ultimate Elektra #1-5 (August 2004 – December 2004).
 

The Beginning:

Ultimate Spider-Man, vol.1: Power and Responsibility
Reprints Ultimate Spider-Man #1-7 (October 2000 – May 2001).
Ultimate Spider-Man, vol.2: Learning Curve
Reprints Ultimate Spider-Man #8-13 (June 2001 – November 2001).
Ultimate X-Men, vol.1: The Tomorrow People
Reprints Ultimate X-Men #1-6 (February 2001 – July 2001).

Reprints Ultimate Spider-Man #14-21 (December 2001 – June 2002).
Ultimate Spider-Man, vol.4: Legacy
Reprints Ultimate Spider-Man #22-27 (July 2002 – November 2002).
Ultimate Marvel Team-up
Reprints Ultimate Marvel Team Up #1-15 (May 2001 – July 2002) & Ultimate Spider-Man Super Special #1 (July 2002).
Ultimate Marvel Team Up is difficult to place – it must occur before The Ultimates 1 for events in the Hulk story, but the same story must occur after USM 4. Compounding this, the Wolverine story appears to occur before UXM 1. However, it can be placed here without doing too much violence to that story. In addition, the appearances of the Fantastic Four in this volume are not considered canonical.
Ultimate X-Men, vol.2: Return to Weapon X
Reprints Ultimate X-Men #7-12 (August 2001 – January 2002).
The appearance of Sabertooth here implies a placement after that of UTU1; also this story occurs prior to the formation of the Ultimates.
Ultimate X-Men, vol.3: World Tour
Reprints Ultimate X-Men #13-20 (February 2002 – August 2002).
The Ultimates, vol.1: Super-Human
Reprints The Ultimates #1-6 (March 2002 – August 2002).
Ultimate Comics Thor
Reprints Ultimate Comics Thor #1-4 (October 2010 – February 2011).
This volume is primarily prequel, but carries right up to the first volume of Ultimates, hence its placement here.
Ultimate Adventures: One Tin Soldier
Reprints Ultimate Adventures #1-6 (November 2002 – September 2003).
Takes place during and after Ultimates.
Ultimate Spider-Man, vol.5: Public Scrutiny
Reprints Ultimate Spider-Man #28-32 (December 2002 – February 2003).
Must occur after Ultimates for the appearance of the Wasp.
Ultimate X-Men, vol.4: Hellfire & Brimstone
Reprints Ultimate X-Men #21-25 (September 2002 – January 2003).
The Ultimates, vol.2: Homeland Security
