Placement Notes:

  1. This issue of The Mighty Thor contains a prequel story that contains spoilers regarding the identity of the Serpent and the Worthy. Although chronologically it occurs here, readers may prefer to read as an epilogue rather than a prologue.
  2. The Sin’s Past special reprints earlier issues of Captain America that feature Sin, with a new framing story. They have no direct connection to the events of Fear Itself.
  3. Journey Into Mystery #626.1 takes place between panels 4 and 5 of page 22 of Journey Into Mystery #622. It does not directly cross over with Fear Itself.
  4. The appearance of Man-Thing in Fear Itself: Fearsome Four makes little sense compared to the character’s appearances in the crossover issues of Thunderbolts. For the purposes of this reading order, I have assumed that he escaped during the mass breakout shown in Thunderbolts #158-159, and was recaptured off-panel before Thunderbolts #160.
  5. Even by the low standards of crossover tie-ins, Fear Itself: Uncanny X-Force is a stunningly pointless waste of time. It’s not half-bad as an X-Force story, but its inclusion in Fear Itself does no favours for either the event or this mini-series.
  6. This issue of Alpha Flight is the only one with direct relevance to Fear Itself – the other issues of this title, while bannered as crossovers, do not connect to the main storyline.
