Ultimate Comics Preferred Reading Order


Well-Known Member
I was going through DIrishB's timeline and thought that it would flow oddly at some areas, especially considering some of the recent retcons/continuity errors. Thus, I put together this rough draft of my preferred reading order based on story arc or mini-series rather than page, issue, or TPB (because it allows for the story to be told completely without jumping around through comics or reading about something that you shouldn't know until a certain point). Because I do not have all of the non-UU (Squadron, Zombies) related stories, some of this information is based on DIrishB's great timeline. Also, I tried to keep the format similar to the main timeline (with the exception of the color code). So enjoy and please help correct my (likely many) errors.
