  1. Are you going to update this list past 2012? It’s super helpful and one of the best marvel comics guides I could find!

    • Thanks Jackson, I’m glad you find it helpful. I am currently putting a lot of effort into getting the New 52 reading order up to date, but as soon as that’s done, I plan to go back to the Marvel Universe one (and some of its multiversal offshoots, including a complete Ultimate Universe reading order) and bring that up to date too.

  2. You did it, you son of bith you did it, idk how, but i gotta say, all your predecessors are really proud of you boy, you did the impossible, you organised the whole Main Timeline of Marvel in chronological order, this blog is fuking indredible really, i rly dont know what to say, i just stumble across this site and really got surprised with what I saw, not just that but it seems you also did for other universes as well, this is crazy bro, thanks for this really

    • Thanks very much. It’s absolutely a labour of love on my part – I want more people to be able to enjoy the things I love, and I really enjoy the puzzle of working out how it all fits together.

  3. Dose this reading order contain all the comics ever release by marvel or only the essential ones
    Because I am looking for a reading order which includes all the comics released
