Spider-Man: Spider-Verse Reading Order Checklist

Throughout the years there have been a variety of different versions of Spider-Man. Whether they be clones or from another universe, most of the time they have stayed in isolation and have never crossed over. Although, this is all going to change with the Spider-Verse. This Spider-Man event will feature as many versions of Spider-Man (as legally possible) and it could be assumed that many will team-up, while others will not get along.

While the main Spider-Verse story doesn’t start until November, there will be plenty of comics that lead to this huge storyline. The/labelled “Edge of Spider-Verse” feature stories of the variety of alternate Spider-Man’s who will play a big part in this event.

As to how many of these lead-in and tie-in stories you read is totally up to you. Usually, they are not required reading but may give you additional context to the character. If you on a budget then you should be able to wait until the main story (through Amazing Spider-Man) in November and still get a story with a beginning, middle and end.

Due to the wealth of tie-ins and the general confusion that events of this scale can have, I have created a Spider-Verse reading order checklist. This will detail all of the issues that are involved in this huge event, along with creative teams and release dates. This will be updated regularly as more information becomes available.

  • This is best site for events yo go organised. I recently started Blackest night but every time I google checklist for it I always found different.. Its really confusing.. Please help.

  • I just wanted to thank you for this. I’m relatively new to the reading of comics, as it’s not really big in my home country. But the Spider-verse was very interesting to me and this guide really helped me. Thanks!

  • I’m completely new to this comic reading. So is this where I should start reading Spider-Man? Or is this far too into the story? I don’t know ?

      • Actually there is no real order to read right? Even if I read all 5 parts of Edge of Spider-Verse and keep going from your order it will still make sense right?

      • There are a few ways you can read it depending on how invested you are in the story. The main story is told in the Amazing Spider-Man issues and you get a full story with that. All the other issues are side stories which tie into the main story and focus on other Spider-characters. It’s totally up to you if you want to read those ?

  • is this the actual sequence . I am confused since I saw the review made by nerd sync and comicstorian . They never mention about this type of sequence . Please tell me since i read this sources on online

    • As I mentioned above the list if you are just interested in the main story read the Amazing Spider-Man issues. The other issues tie-in to the main story but you do not have to read them if you don’t want to.

  • Hi, I’m a bit confused with the list. Just started reading comics so I’m not quite sure how things work in terms of tie-ins etc. Is it possible to read all of ASM to see the Spider-Verse story line? And what is the difference between reading just Spider-Verse and reading the entire checklist you’ve put up?

    • If you read only the ASM issues you’ll get a full story which is where the main story is for Spider-Verse. For big stories like this it is not uncommon to have secondary stories spinning out of the events of the main. They’re optional reading but worth checking out some of them if you’re really enjoying the story or want it fleshed out even more.

  • spiderman 2099 #8 came out on January 28 but is before amazing spiderman 14 and 15?? and spider woman came out o January 11 and it´s the last one?? Also, when did amazing spiderman come out? There is no date :S
