Marvel Now Reading Order Guide (2012 to 2015)

A completely complete guide to the comics of Marvel NOW! and All-New Marvel NOW!, leading up to 2015’s Marvel Universe shattering Secret Wars. This is the world of the Marvel Universe following the events of Avengers vs. X-Men. It’s important to note that Marvel NOW! is not an event or crossover so much as it is a “state of the Universe.” After the events of AvX, towards the last quarter of 2012, several new series were launched, and several others were given new #1 issues. Unlike DC’s similarly sales-tastic (don’t look that up) ‘New 52,’ Marvel did not reset the entire history and continuity of their comic book universe.



Below you’ll find a complete guide to every single Marvel story arc within Marvel NOW!, including crossover events like X-Men: Battle of the Atom, Age of Ultron, Infinity, and Avengers and X-Men: Axis. You’ll also find links taking you directly to each series for quick Marvel Unlimited reading, or the trade option for those of you who prefer the feel of real valyrian steel in your hands (is that not what books are made out of? I might not know a lot about publishing.)

This is, without question, the most ambitious reading order on Comic Book Herald, but I’m really excited for the journey from the start of Marvel NOW on through to Secret Wars.

As always, if you have suggestions or questions, you can email dave@comicbookherald.com. You can also find me on Twitter @comicbookherald and of course on our Facebook page.

The start of Marvel NOW!

The Marvel Now Reading Order

If you want the most direct possible approach, you can try the Marvel NOW! fast track guide!

In many ways, Avengers vs. X-Men is the prologue to the first wave of Marvel NOW! books. You don’t necessarily have to have read this event, but it will be referenced frequently, starting with the books we can consider direct aftermath. As always, you can check out the full Comic Book Herald Avengers vs. X-Men reading order.

If you’re going to jump into X-Factor here, you’ll really want to run it all the way back to Peter David’s start on the series in 2005. I’m not sure we even had cars back then, that’s how long he’s been crafting this excellent series.

Avengers Arena

Falls under the ‘arena’ of series you can read all at once, and really whenever you darn well feel like reading Marvel’s excellent replication of The Hunger Games.

Issues: #1 to #18

Collected Trade: Avengers Arena, Vol. 1: Kill or Die

On Marvel Unlimited: Avengers Arena

Captain America

Marvel NOW sends Captain America to ‘Dimension Z’ an alternate microverse created by Dr. Arnim Zola. As such, it’s essentially a story out of time, meaning you can read Cap’s exploits in Avengers books separate from Rick Remender’s run. At least until after Original Sin.

Issues: #1 to #10

On Marvel Unlimited: Hawkeye

Indestructible Hulk

Issues: #1 to #5

On Marvel Unlimited: Indestructible Hulk

Iron Man

You could make a case that the ‘Godkiller’ story arc should be placed after the beginning of Guardians of the Galaxy. Nonetheless, there is no reference to Iron Man’s association with the Guardians until Iron Man #9, and its placement works logically here.

Issues: #1 to #8

Collected Trade: Iron Man Volume 1: Believe

On Marvel Unlimited: Iron Man

Thor: God of Thunder

Hot take: You can read Thor: God of Thunder in its entirity any time you darn well please.

V) Marvel: Street First Wave

Daredevil: End of Days

A “last” Daredevil story that can be read at any point, really. That said, it forms a nice conclusion to the 2000’s runs on Daredevil, and transitions us towards Mark Waid’s brighter run on the character.

Issues: #1 to #8

Collected Trade: Daredevil: End of Days

On Marvel Unlimited: Daredevil: End of Days

Daredevil

Highly recommend reading the entirety of Mark Waid’s run on Daredevil, which begins all the way back in July 2011 (a little over a year before Marvel NOW begins). Issue #22 marks the official start of Daredevil’s “Marvel NOW” books.

Issues: #1 to #21

  1. Hi, I was wondering where series like Thor (female), Captain Marvel (the second volume of Carol Danvers’ Marvel Now comics), Rocket Raccoon and Ms. Marvel fit into this

      1. oh god, I just started reading comics and for some reason i couldn’t find a chronological order of comics until i found your CBH, though i was confused about Thor until i saw your comment lol

        keep up the good work, cheers

  2. So, I have just finished reading Bendis’ run on Daredevil (WOW!) and have moved directly onto Brubaker’s run… Am I right in thinking that Waid’s run follows Brubaker? I absolutely love Daredevil and want to read it in the right order.

  3. I have a question about Hickman’s Fantastic Four and FF series. You have Vol. 1 of each series to be read together (unless I’m reading it wrong myself). I thought FF was the result of a major character in Fantastic Four Vol. 3 or 4, I believe. Do we need to read up to that point and then read FF Vol. 1.

    Just trying to make a list order to read before Secret Wars in May (I got a lot of reading to do). Your lists have been a great guide, jut a bit confused on that one.

  4. Hi! I see you’ve updated your awesome reading order, making it even more awesome!:D

    I have a question tho, in your “Secret Wars Reading Order” you list Avengers & New Avengers alternatively 1-by-1 and, between “New Avengers #29” and “Avengers #41”, you suggest reading the Ultimate Comics (which I still have to).

    Now you have changed the order from the “1-by-1 order” to “Avengers: #34.1, #34.2, #35 to #44” and “New Avengers: #24 to #33”.

    I still have to fit Ultimated in there? If yes, where?

    Thanks again for your awesome job and sorry for my poor english 😀

    1. The Ultimate reference will always come after Avengers #41. Not a requirement, but it will help with the backstory, and it’s just a fun read.

      Enjoy the comics!

  5. Excellent guide. Seems like somewhere between X-men Second Wave and Battle of the Atom, “All-New X-Men” 12 through 15 are missing. Any idea where you would put them?

    1. I noticed the same thing since I just got to that reading point im just going to read 12-15 after the second wave of uncanny avengers since #11 of all-new x-men ended with them showing.

  6. Brilliant website Dave. As a newbie to comics, your reading guides have helped so much. Thanks so much. I was just wondering though, if you’re gonna do a fast track Marvel NOW! guide now that we’re heading into Secret wars. I don’t have a lot of free time (being a busy University student and all) and usually only get to read 5 issues a day so your fast track guides have helped immensely.

  7. Hi,

    Any idea on when you’re going to update this page ? I was asking myself the same thing for your DC list.

    Thanks again for the great work you’re doing.

  8. So what about Savage Hulk, Thanos vs Hulk, Avengers endless war, rage of ultron, Cap homecoming and a couple other releases from marvel that came out during these past 3 years? do those have a place at all or are the self contained?

    1. Hey Chris, saw that you haven’t gotten an answer yet. Maybe I can help.
      – Don’t know about Savage Hulk, looked it up at the Marvel Wikia, and it looks to me like a big flashback story line to the days of the original X-Men.
      – Thanos vs. Hulk is part of the Thanos graphic novels. The order is this: Thanos Annual #1, Thanos: The Infinity Revelation, Thanos vs. Hulk #1-4, Thanos: The Infinity Relativity, Thanos: The Infinity Finale. I believe they should be read before Secret Wars (2015). Dave has included it in his Thanos reading order.
      – Avengers: Endless War is a original graphic novel that has some continuity errors. It fits best before the Infinity event.
      – Rage of Ultron is another original graphic novel and is set in the eight months between Secret Wars and the start of All-New, All-Different, so read it before the last one.
      – Captain America: Homecoming is a Marvel Cinematic Universe inspired comic (meaning that it’s not canon with the MCU) that is best read before watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but it is definitely not set in Earth-616 (the mainstream Marvel universe).

      Other stories that aren’t included as far as I know (according to Dave’s list)…
      – Amazing Spider-Man: Family Business, an original graphic novel, read it before Amazing Spider-Man: Dying Wish (##693-700).
      – Escape From the Negative Zone, consists of Uncanny X-Men Annual #3, Steve Rogers – Super-Soldier Annual #1, Namor – The First Mutant Annual #1. Read it after All-New X-Men: Here to Stay (#4-11)
      – X-Men: No More Humans, another original graphic novel that can be read right after X-Men: Battle of the Atom.
      – The Arms of the Octopus: consists of All-New X-Men Special #1, Indestructible Hulk Special #1, and Superior Spider-Man Special #1. Read it before Superior Spider-Man: Superior Venom (that’s #22-26+Annual #1).
      – Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?, an Infinite comic, read it after the end of Superior Spider-Man but before Amazing Spider-Man: The Parker Luck (##1, 1.1, 2, 1.2, 3, 1.3)
      – Daredevil: Road Warrior, an Infinite comic, read it before Daredevil: Devil at Bay (#1-5).
      – No End in Sight: consists of Uncanny X-Men Special #1, Iron Man Special #1, and Nova Special #1. You read it after All-New X-Men: One Down (#25-30).
      Hope I could help. Happy reading!

      1. So not to bring up old stuff, but Sean points out a lot of books here that still aren’t part of the list. Any chance they may still be added or is this chapter pretty much closed at this point? Love the work you’re doing!

  9. Hey, absolutely incredible list!

    It’s probably not your fault, but do you know why your link to Marvel Now! Point One (2012) doesn’t lead to a place I can read it? There’s just nothing there.

  10. I read Brubaker’s Winter Soldier run, and then vol 4 The Electric Ghost. I can’t figure out where to go from there to follow James and Natasha and see how we got her back. I’ve read the current Black Widow run, so I guess I’m wondering where/how the storylines connect up. Is it the Winter Soldier: Man on the Wall? Thanks.

  11. Thanks so much for this. This is list is much easier to understand and navigate than any others out there. As a comics newbie, it’s my go-to comic roadmap right now.

  12. I am digging this Marvel Now! reading order very much! Thank you for your hard work. I am breezing right through it. I’m skipping series I’ve already read (Hawkeye, Daredevil, GotG, etc…), and ones I figure I can read later (Indestrucitble Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, etc…). I am really enjoying All-New X-Men, Superior Spider-Man, both of Hickman’s Avengers, but I digress…I just made it to Battle of the Atom and I noticed there is a gap between All-New X-Men #4-11 & 16-17 which are part of BotA. Where should I read 12-15? I’m guessing it doesn’t matter now that I’ve come this far, but thought I would point it out for future readers.

    At any rate, keep up the good work. This is my go-to site for comics!

  13. Finally made it all the way to spider verse and finished it. And realize the list will probably start to become dated for me will you be updating this soon? if not im sure i can figure it out.

    Besides a couple missing annuals and graphic novels. oh and some the issues marked “Special #soandso” were missing I just read them whenever they were the last book i had in the series. Good example being the “No End in Sight” Story line made up of issues Uncanny X-Men Special#1,Iron Man Special #1,Nova Special #1 which I read after i read the last issue of iron man.

    Otherwise amazing job!! I apperciate it so much and would have never even thought to take this journey from AvX to Secret Wars 2015 if i had not found this list! thank you very much!

    Please let me know if you will be updating it!

    1. This should be pretty darn complete leading up to Secret Wars. I tried to include series up to the point that Secret Wars starts.

      That said, once Secret Wars ends, I’ll be taking a look at the weird series that kept running and see what updates might be needed.

      Glad you enjoy so far though!

  14. I noticed you only have 7 issues of Avenging Spider-Man (#17-22 and Annual #1). The series’ TPB’s seem to have generally good reviews. Did you leave them out because they don’t have much to do with continuity or was there some other reason? Just curious because at quick glance it seems that you included the majority of all other Spidey-related series on this list.

    1. Nevermind. I see now that the series was started back in 2011 before the Marvel NOW! branding began. That is why you are the master and I am but a grasshopper. Great work, by the way. I just began getting back into Marvel comics for the first time in over 20 years and have been following your guides and they are a godsend.

  15. I finally did it! Officially caught up with everything released from marvel AVX to Secret Wars!

    Thanks again for all your hard work. Made my life easier!

    I might dive into the ultimate universe now since its met its end and its part of secret wars.

    Dave, Any Idea if it will take me as long to finish the ultimate universe as it did marvel now? I started in May and Finished in the middle of august(work+social life made me take longer)

    Idk if how much material there is in Ultimate universe so any estimate from yourself would be great!

    Thanks Again!

    1. That’s an interesting question… the Ultimate U is over a much longer time period (2000 to present!) but Marvel Now has way more individual titles. If I had to guess, I’d say Marvel Now is actually slightly longer, but they’re probably somewhat similar.

  16. Awesome guide! I was finally able to dive into the MU with this. There’s a couple of series’ that seem to be out of sync that might need to be moved around. For example, events in Hulk (2014) that should come before Original Sin, Captain America’s rapid ageing should happen a lot later in the guide as he shows up young everywhere for a while after, and a few Avengers World issues (possibly others), where Wolverine is still alive after the placement of Death of Wolverine.

    Brilliant site, keep up the good work.

  17. Wow this list is insane!! I think I’ll definitely make an attempt however I was just wondering, are you going to do a fast track version of this as well??

  18. Hey Dave,

    First off, thank you for your awesome reading guides! I’m fairly new to reading comics (started in 2014) and yours is the only site worth checking.

    I was wondering if you could tell me when I should read the Amazing Spider-Man 700.1-700.5 issues.

    Thanks again for all you do, man!

  19. Either your guide is missing a part, or you numbered it wrong. Either way XXVII is missing; it goes straight from XXVI to XXVIII. Also a few of your links for Marvel Unlimited lead to the wrong series; somebody needs to spend a day clicking and correcting. I can compile a list if it would help.

    But as always, you’re amazing and so is your website. 🙂

  20. Is this reading order completely finished now that Secret Wars is over? There are still some blank spots in the final wave, and I’m trying not to miss any issues between this order and the Secret Wars order.

  21. This is an outstanding resource! A couple of items are missing between this and Secret Wars.

    1. Silk #5-6
    2. Black Widow #13-18

  22. Great guide that has made the Marvel Universe much more accessible. I also had trouble with Hulk (2014) being out of order (I had no idea why there were references to the brain thing in original sin) until I realised that It was a bit out of order. But overall an AMAZING guide!

  23. Hi, thanks for all the effort you’ve put in, you’ve been a godsend.
    As part of XXXVIII you list Uncanny Avengers #1-#4. After reading them and taking a chance I think it should be #1-#5. The fifth edition actually finishes with a secret wars banner.

    Keep up the good work

  24. Hey Dave,

    Your friendly neighborhood spreadsheet keeper here, asking: is this still considered part of the “main” guide? None of the “main” guides actually link to this page, and I had to follow an old link I had saved to get here. I assume these comics between events are still worth reading, yes?

    As always, thanks for your website and all your hard work.

  25. Is Superior Carnage not a part of Marvel Now ? And if he is, when can I read it plz =) ?
    Btw, great job ! As a French reader, it would have been annoying to find the right reading order ^^.

      1. Heya!

        Could you be a little more specific on where to put Superior Carnage in relation to the Superior Spider-Man series…?

        I started out with Dying Wish, got all of the Superior Spider-Man main series after that and now I’d like to stock up on the rest of Marvel NOW! Spider-Man… so basically what I’m asking is… after what Volume or Issue of Superior Spider-Man and/or Team-Up and/or Superior Foes should I read Superior Carnage?

        Thank you in advance for your reply and thank you for this AMAZING list!!

  26. Wow, just discovered this site. You sir are a guru of comics. I’m diving back into comics after an absence and am looking forward to using your reading order guides.

    I’ve been battling cancer for close to three years now, so I will have some time to really get back into comics since I’m on medical leave.

    I’m looking forward to exploring the site as well as the comics!

    Chris

  27. Hey there! I’ve been using this site as my primary resource for comic continuity for about a year now, and I absolutely love what you’re doing here!

    I have just a couple of suggestions to improve the continuity of your reading order:
    1. I can’t seem to find All-New X-Men 12-15 in your reading order, and when I got to the Battle of the Atom, I started with #16, and then realized I hadn’t read past #11, per the guide’s instructions.
    2. In XXV Second Wave All-New X-Men you have X-Force to 7-15, and then in Axis you have X-Force 16-17. However, #15 is also Axis (which your Axis reading order says, but this main one does not.)

    I’m approaching the Death of Wolverine here, and I’m in the Countdown to Divided We Fall in your Ultimate Universe reading order. I’ve been heading towards Secret Wars and your guide has been such a tremendous help! Also, I really like the way you added commentary early on in this guide, it was always very enjoyable!

  29. Hi. Before anything else, this is a great guide! I’m trying to keep up with the AN;AD titles and decided to read Secret Wars first, but ultimately decided to go back to Marvel Now!. Since I’m rather new to this, I noticed a few titles were excluded, either because they aren’t Marvel Now titles or have no real weight to the storyline, but I would like to read them nonetheless. Any chance you could add a section for titles running from the beginning of Marvel Now to Secret Wars that are linked to 616 Main Universe? I’d like to read the entirety. Also noticed the Nick Fury title was to be read, but only the first issue. Should I finish the whole thing then? Thanks, and more power!

  30. Hiya, it’s me again, your friendly neighborhood Spidey-fan.

    First off, I love this guide, it really helped me put up my own Spider-Man universe reading order, starting with Scarlet Spider Volume 1. However I’d (naturally) like to take it further from where I’m at. At the end of the first Spider-Verse event, there was already a tease to Spider-Verse: Warzones, which is a part of Marvel’s Secret Wars. Now my question is, where do I put Silk Volume 0 and more importantly Spider-Gwen Volume 0. In your reading order, they’re the last books before Secret Wars but with the before mentioned Spider-Verse: Warzones tease, I’m unsure if the order on that should be different, i.e. either put Spider-Gwen Volume 0 BEFORE Spider-Verse or put Spider-Verse: Warzones BEFORE Spider-Gwen Volume 0… the rest (except for my earlier Superior Carnage question) is pretty clear to me but I just can’t quite put my finger on this one…

    Thanks for the amazing list (once again) and thanks in advance for the reply.

  31. You have “Wolverines” listed twice. One with just the first 16 issues, and the second with all 20. Am I missing something, or where are they actually supposed to go?

  32. Just curious, where should I read the final issues of Uncanny X-Men & All-New X-Men? After Black Vortex? Should I wait until Time Runs Out for Uncanny X-Men 600?

    Thank you!

  33. This guide is amazing. I like how it’s broken up into categories and events which makes it easier to skip all the X-Men and Marvel Street stuff and get straight into Avengers, Cosmic and events.

    Any chance you could add a table of contents in at the start which when clicked takes you directly to the relevant part in the guide? Having to navigate this page on my phone is a major pain.

  34. Thank you so much for this. I’ve already read the most part of it, but wasn’t sure if I missed something important, because now I’m going to All New All Different. Anyway, greetings from Brazil. Awesome job!

  35. Hey I just got caught up to the X-Termination and it got really confusing around this area since Astonishing X-men and Age of Apocalypse weren’t included. Is there a reason for it at all?
