This entire Dan Jurgens Thor run needs to be read. Starting with this arc and going through spiral onward until ragnorak is one of the best long form story telling I’ve read in Marvel continuity. You can just start here and read through the rest of Jurgens run, but learning who characters are will help the rest make more sense. It’s a quick read and I’m honestly surprised that at least the rest of Jurgens run isn’t included in the full Marvel read. It’s great stuff
Great guide, I like it! Thank you for your amazing work!
But here is one thing that I want to notice. When I started reading this part of the order about Thor, well, I didn’t understand anything what was going on in this TPB and I decided to read this volume from first issue. After that all events in TPB became understandable, so I highly recommend to do the same thing to all readers, besides, there is a very good story in this volume.
Is there any specific reason you know of that this story was cut off at #43? I feel like #44 would be a more satisfying conclusion (but I won’t specify, in the interest of keeping it spoiler-free) before the next arc picks up in issue #45.
Best guess is it’s just a limitation of the trade paperback collection. I agree, issue #44 makes a lot of sense to include in this read.
I love this reading order, it’s gotten me into comics for the first time. I’ve read all but two trades listed here up through Thor: Son of Asgard, and I’m certainly going to keep going, but the listing of Infinity Abyss gives me pause. The amazon description seems to say that it follows the Infinity Crisis event – should I go through the entirety of your Thanos reading order before reading the Infinity Abyss? Even if it isn’t mandatory, I probably will anyways – I would just like to know how it fits into the larger picture. Thank you!
Yeah, I’d recommend the full Thanos reading order before diving into Infinity Abyss. It will make more sense. Plus, Thanos is awesome 🙂
