Thank god for this site, I read the core sentry run because I heard it was good and when it ended with the heroes gathering, I was so confused at what to read to get the rest of the story. Now I know, thanks!
I’m trying to follow the marvel comics reading order…
I only found The Sentry series from 2005 (#1 – #8), there is so much difference between the 2000/2001 to the 2005 history?
Sorry for my bad english,
If you’re looking in Marvel Unlimited, the series is titled “Sentry (2000-2001)”. I would definitely recommend starting with that series. Enjoy the comics!
Here is a reading order:
Here you link to the amazon page for The Sentry Vol 2 a 2005 run. The 2001 run is The Sentry Vol 1. Which did you mean?
2001. Link updated, thanks for the heads up!
Loved these 5 issues. Is the rest of the story covered in the reading order list. I don’t want to jump out of order to finish it.
I think they’re actually missing from the main order. You can jump to the bonus sentry issues after this!
Dave, I found them on Marvel Unlimited. Read five one-shots ending with the Sentry/Void. Thanks a lot.
Hey, great site! I’ve finished reading issue 5, but not sure what to read next. The heroes gathered to battle the Void. Thanks!
Glad you dig the site! if you’re on Marvel Unlimited, there are a handful of Sentry one-shots you can read next, such as this Fantastic Four issue: http://marvel.com/comics/series/6065/sentry_fantastic_four_2001
My rec would be to head to marvel.com/comics/series and just type “Sentry” into the series index. You’ll get all of them easy!
The one-shots can be read in any order, saving The Void for last. MU links, for the lazy:
And finally, The Void:
