If there’s one thing we know about Spider-Man fans, it’s that they love clones. Wait, where are you going?! Come back!
Ok, ok, in reality comic book fans have long held the 1990’s Spider-Man Clone Saga up as one of the most controversial Marvel events of all time. Fans who were there for the ride may harbor a deep resentment, whereas many look back now with warm nostalgia towards the never-ending saga of Peter Parker, the Jackal, and all those Spider-clones!
Dan Slott has proven he’s a clear a fan of 90’s Spider-Man comics during his lengthy tenure on the wall-crawler, and that continues with this latest Spider-Man event, Clone Conspiracy.
Clone Conspiracy not only re-invites Jackal into the life of Peter Parker, but the clonage this time extends to a whole bunch of “Dead No More” Marvel Universe figures, inviting tons of drama and controversy.
Below you’ll find a complete reading order for the Spider-Man: Clone Conspiracy.

Before Dead No More
Clone Conspiracy, AKA Dead No More
Prowler presents some serious continuity confusion. I initially had the issues placed in order of publication meaning read Prowler #1 after Clone Conspiracy #1, Prowler #2 after Clone Conspiracy #2, and so on.
Prowler keeps showing up in Clone Conspiracy core issues, though, meaning it makes more sense if his solo adventures take place together. Essentially, Prowler #1 to #3 takes place after Clone Conspiracy #3 and 1/4, and then Prowler #4 clearly takes place after Clone Conspiracy #4.
