Marvel’s Civil War II Reading Order Checklist

Marvel's Civil War II Reading Order Checklist.

NOTE: This is a reading order for the Civil War II. If you’re looking for a reading order for the original event you will find it here.

Civil War II is Marvel’s big comic book event for 2016 which will divide much of their huge roster of heroes. It will be hero against hero as they battle over how they should operate. How does this conflict all begin? It call comes down to one Inhuman – Ulysses. This brand new Inhuman has the ability to see future events.

Some heroes, lead by Captain Marvel will want to use this ability to go all Minority Report when it comes to tackling threats. Others, such as those on the side of Iron Man, don’t think it is a good idea and potentially dangerous. These groups feel so strongly about these ideals that they’re willing to go to war against each other to fight for what they believe in. Throw Thanos into the mix and we have a massive story.

As big Marvel events can sometimes be a bit confusing, I’ve created the Civil War II Reading Order Checklist. This handy guide not only gives you a reading order but also lists the creative teams, release dates and tie-ins involved.

Before we get to the list, here are some common questions about Civil War II.

Do I Need To Read The Original Civil War To Understand This?

Nope.

Civil War II is a thematic sequel as opposed to a direct sequel. This means you can read this event without having read the original.

If you watch this video it should give you basic information on all the characters you need to know.

What Is “Road to Civil War II”?

Road to Civil War II are comics Marvel have labelled as ones that lead up to the events of Civil War II.

Do I Need To Read The Tie-Ins?

Nope.

Marvel sets up events like this in a way you can get a full story from the main series and the tie-ins are are parallel stories. Some of these will closer to the main story than others. Some spin-out in their own direction based on something that happens in the main story while others will show what happens to characters off-panel.

How Do I Read Civil War II?

I have set up the Civil War II Reading Order Checklist in a way that gives you a general guide on how it can be read if you want to read everything, but at the same time it is set up so you can read it in different ways. These are:

  1. Read Civil War II #0-8
  2. Read Civil War II #0-8, and the tie-ins that you are interested in (which is fair enough considering there are so many of them!)
  3. Read Civil War II #0-8, and all of the tie-ins

If you are currently reading any of the comics which tie-in to Civil War II then you can continue to read them without worrying about the stories being interrupted. Marvel has stated that even though they tie-in to this big event they will also continue story threads of the series.

If you are only reading some of the tie-ins then you can use the Civil War II Reading Order Checklist to see where you should read these in relation to the main story.

  • Hi! Thank you so much creating the list. I am actually new to Marvel comics. I have not read any origin stories of any Marvel character. So, is it ok if I read Civil War 2, as well as the tie-ins?

    • You won’t need to know the origins of characters to read Civil War II. If you’re ever confused a quick Wikipedia search should give you the information you need 😀

  • Could you add issues 16 and 17 of Uncanny Avengers as the form a complete Aftermath arc of the event as well.

    • Hey Juan, Civil War II: Ulysses is a digital-first series in 6 digital chapters which were then released into 3 print comics. I had the print comics listed, but I have updated that section to make it more clearer.

  • I just found out some comics that are after civil war 2 like the new iron man with riri does spoil the ending civil war comics.

  • I just read Ultimates vol 1 and liked it a lot, would like to continue reading it but the next volume will tie in to Civil War II. Is it safe to read? Would I be able to understand what’s going on in Ultimates without reading the main event series? Or would I be better of to skip it and continue with the new series, Ultimates2?

  • So if I want to read everything in this event I will need to read and purchase over 150 comics? Did I count that correctly? That is quite the financial commitment.

    • Hi Bruce, if you want to read absolutely everything then yes. Sometimes Marvel goes all out with these events. Luckily you don’t have to read everything. My suggestion is to stick with the main miniseries and then splinter off into the tie-ins that interest you.

  • you have placed the Invincible Iron Man #11 before the Invincible Iron Man #10 in the timeline. something you should fix.

  • Hi thanks for the list and was just wondering if captain marvel #10 came out cause I got most of the end of the list but in the marvel app it atill doesn’t have xaptain marvel ten. Maybe its going to release later?

    • Hey Adrian, due to the main series delays Marvel have pushed back Captian Marvel #10 until November. I’ve adjusted the list 🙂

      • Again thank you for all your hard work. Also I think its kinda weird that all the aftermath of civil war 2 are coming out before it wven finished. Do you maybe know why? Just wondering

      • Hey Adrian, I believe it’s because Civil War II keeps getting delayed but Marvel don’t want to hold-up other comics.

  • Hey Trevor! I wanna read Infamous Iron Man #1, but to read that you probably need to read Invincible Iron Man #14 which is only at the bottom of this Civil War II reading list. What should I do? (Thank you for your help as always).

    • Hey Martim, great question. I haven’t read Infamous Iron Man #1 yet but everything I have read about it says that it is very ambiguous about what has happened to Tony Stark. Based on that you should be able to jump right into it and not have anything spoiled.

    • Hey Mash, thanks for thee feedback. I’ll make the changes as soon as I can. Also, next time there is no need to be so rude if you find something wrong in a list. With a list this complex there are bound to be a few mistakes. Just point them out in a civil manner. I’ve spent about 20 hours out my own time to do this list. The last thing I need is someone being a jerk about it.

      • Now saying “Seriously” is being rude. That seems legit.
        Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! #8 should be inmediatly after Civil War #1. This change is of minor importance but won’t keep fans wondering about She-Hulk’s fate (I thought she died).
        And only 20 hours? I’m spending more reading the complete comic’s series just to keep a good track of the storyline but this isn’t a competition. The point should be working making a better timeline of this list.

  • At the beggining you put International Iron Man #3. First, it’s #4. Second, it’s only related because at the beggining there is a news report about the extradimensional invasion of Civil War II #1 so it goes after CW #1
    Invincible Iron Man until #11 and Captain Marvel #6 are before Civil War II #0 because Rhodes is alive.

    • Thanks for the update. International Iron Man #3 is loosely connected to Civil War II and was solicited as a prologue story even if it didn’t have the branding on it. #4 inwards have been have been have tied-in loosely as well, but very much during the events of Civil War II.

  • It turns out International Iron Man #7 wasn’t really a Civil War II tie-in, though. Unless Tony finding out about his parent’s lineage was what he was doing when he dissapeared during the siege against his company?

    • Hey Martim, Karnak is telling its own story and not tying into Civil War II. The character has appeared in the prequel series Civil War II: Ulysses.

  • I dunno if this has been discussed but Captain Marvel #6 is not listed in the right order in my opinion. A certain character who gets axed off in Civil War II issue #1 is seen in Captain Marvel #6 yet its placed after Civil War II #1

  • Just wanted to point out that Guardians of the Galaxy #11 comes out on 31st August not the 10th of August. Please fix. Otherwise so helpful for me as it gets difficult for me to keep track on what to read or not. I also enjoy your other reading checklists as they are really helpful.

    Thanks so much

  • Thx so much for the list, I’m sure it’s a pain in the ass to keep it as current as you do.

    Thx to posters who have pointed additions & date changes

  • You have Captain America: Sam Wilson #12 on your list twice. Once releasing on August 17, and once on September 28. Should the second one actually be Captain America: Sam Wilson #13?

    • Also, Wikipedia lists International Iron Man #5-6 and Uncanny Avengers #15 as being tie-ins to the event. Do you know where these titles fit in the chronological order?

    • Hey Nathaniel, good spotting. The one on September 28 should be issue #13. I’ve made the update to reflect that.

  • Civil War 0 needs to go before or after the Invincible Iron Man issues 6-10, currently Rhodie is in the middle of being blown up when he has a meeting with Barack.

      • Awesome, thanks Trevor. I’ve started reading the series properly now that there’s enough material to binge on and it’s difficult to keep track but your list really helps. Having just finished Captain Marvel #6, it feels like this should go somewhere between Civil War #1 and #2 since it features xxxxx and given what happens to him/her in CW2#1 such a story should almost certainly fit here… I suspect that Captain Marvel #7 should fit directly after #6 but I guess I’ll know in about 30 issues time.

    • Hey Josh, Constest of Champions doesn’t really fit in with Civil War II. It’s more of a story about the characters visiting an alternate Earth in which Iron Man won the original Civil War story.

  • Deadpool #16 and Uncanny Inhuman #12 are listed here as released 07/27, but on Marvel Wiki both are listed as 08/03.

    • Will be out in October. I’ll update the list once Marvel have announced all their comic releases for that month.

    • Hi Alex, Civil War II #6 is in the list. It’s currently between Venom: Space Knight #12 and Civil War II: Choosing Sides #6 (of 6) and will be out on September 21st.

  • Would you mind adding numbers next to each release and continue to modify the numbers as you are able to put them in reading order? Thanks so much for this. I have all 32 issues released so far in order that you have listed above.

  • I thought this was a reading order, but so far it just seems like a release order. Unfortunately I started reading the ones I had so far in this order, and WOW is it off. lol

    • Thanks for letting me know. Can you tell me which comics are in the wrong place and where they should go?

    • Hey John, thanks for pointing that out! I’ve fixed that up. The 2nd one should’ve been New Avengers #15.

    • I believe in Superior Spider-Man he’s transported back in time and marooned in the present(2014 is when it happened) and he’s been in the present day Earth 61…erm…”Earth Prime” since then. The previous run was pretty good but I haven’t started on the new one.

  • Hey Trevor – just wondering if this is the fully complete list?

    There seems to be some comics coming out with Civil War II art on the cover for Venom: Space Knight 11, Squadron Supreme 10, Rocket Racoon & Groot 8, Scarlet Witch 8 etc. But these are not on the list. Does the list need to be updated?

    • Hey Hashmil, Civil War 2 continues into August and September but as I don’t have confirmation of dates for Aug comics I can’t put them in a rough order yet. Once the dates are out they’ll go into the list.

    • Ms Marvel issue 8 is also not out today. 🙁

      Thank you for everything you do to keep us comic book lovers on the right path.

      • Hey James, It looks like Marvel changed the date of release on Ms Marvel too. I’ve changed the date to reflect the 22nd.

    • Hey James, It looks like Marvel changed the date of release. I’ve changed the date to reflect the 22nd.

  • It says that new avengers #13 releases on July 8th and then that totes awesome hulk #8 release July 6th. Is this correct?
    Also, thanks heaps for this reading order!

    • Hey Jayden, nice pick-up. That’s a typo on my end. I’ll fix it up now. It should read July 6th.

  • Just noticed that Uncanny Inhumans is listed twice, June and july. Should it be 10 & 11 or 11 & 12. And thanks for another great list, It’s greatly appreciated.

  • I’m a brand new comic reader thought this was a good point to jump on the train, I was unsure if I needed to follow every civil war comic so thanks for clarifying. Also seems like Captain Marvel is the one going minority report so far 🙂

    • Hey Pete, great question! At the moment the list is mapped out based on release dates as Marvel generally plans the release of the tie-ins around the main series. The order of tie-ins might change a bit as we go along but should remain pretty static as many of them based off reactions of event’s plot points.

      If you read any of the tie-ins and they feel out of place then let me know ?

  • Thank you for making this comprehensive reading list, which seems to be one of the few most accurate readily available ones so far. It seems that the FCBD issue is not a prelude though, but the first issue itself already, so might want to edit that. The FCBD issue contains a bonus standalone prelude to the latest issue of All-New All-Different Avengers but since it has no direct bearing on this crossover so far, well maybe it doesn’t need to be mentioned so uh, keep up the great work! Will definitely return to this page again and again as the crossover continues.

    • Thanks for the kind words!

      Yeah, you’re probably right about the FCBD issue. I was going to wait and see how #1 panned out first to confirm.

  • Issues #7 and #8 of Invincible Iron Man are also on the Road to Civil War II, released in March and April respectively. Given this is arguably one of the better tie-ins, it should be marked up on this excellent list.

    • Thanks for letting me know Danny! I’ve added them to the list. I also added #6 as it’s the first part of the story ?

  • Do you think the International Iron Man story will play in to Civil War II? I didn’t see it listed in the tie-ins, but I’m just asking b/c Brian Bendis writes this book as well. It deals with finding out who Tony Stark’s real parent’s are, before he was adopted. I haven’t been following this book, but I might pick up issue 5 in July to see what the big mystery is. Thanks for the reading list! They’re the best one’s I have found.

    • Thanks! At the moment International Iron Man doesn’t play into Civil War II. My guess is either Bendis has covered enough bases with Iron Man elsewhere in the event or he doesn’t want to disrupt the story he is telling in International Iron Man.

  • This and your cover of all the ANAD series and how to enter the continuity has gotten me back into Marvel!
    I can’t thank you and this site enough for all the coverage!
