Marvel Cosmic Reading Order List

Postby S.F. Jude Terror » Thu Mar 04, 2010 12:43 pm

A friend of mine is looking to get into the Marvel Cosmic stuff. I said a rough outline would be Annihilation, followed by Nova, followed by Annihilation Conquest, followed by Guardians of the Galaxy. But I figure you guys could come up with something more concrete, so lets do it. Once we hash it out, I'll post the list here in the first post.

Infinity Gauntlet should be at the beginning, or maybe Rebirth of Thanos/Thanos Quest first followed by IG if they want the entire story there.

Everybody hit it on the head...i would go with all of that along with X-men rise and fall of the shi'ar empire, x-men emperor vulcan, x-men kingbreaker and some of you might hate me for this but Mark Gruenwald's Quasar from the early 90's

Even some silver surfer. IMO nothing is bad in cosmic marvel... i enjoy all of it

All the Annihilation stuff is collected so I'd just follow the way it's collected.

I'm finally going ot start reading War of Kings but I don't know if I should read the Nova and Guardians trades before the WoK HC.

I am the secret friend Jude speaks of. I don't know why he is ashamed of our love.

I am collecting this solely in trades, so if someone knows the exact trade break down that would be nice.

I just ordered Annihilation Vol I trade (softcover) and it collects DRAX THE DESTROYER #1-4, ANNIHILATION PROLOGUE and ANNIHILATION: NOVA #1-4. I'm not particularly interested in anything that came before that, as I am only a Level 3 Nerd and don't intend on reading Everything about the cosmic history of Marvel (but feel free to list it).

My working list so far for an introduction is:

Annihilation TP Vol 1
Annihilation TP Vol 2
Annihilation TP Vol 3

Is the next step then the Annihilation Conquest trades or am I missing something in between?

Before that, you might need X-Men: Dark Genesis.

And before that, you might need House of M.

And before that, you might need Avengers: Disassembled

And before that, you might need Mark Gruenwald's Vision and Scarlet Witch limited series.

I read Nova v.1 before Conquest.
