The Marvel Universe is rich with alternate versions of Spider-people swinging around the place. Some of them share Marvel’s main universe, such as Miles Morales. Others are from alternative universes and have a unique spin on the Spidey concept.

In the 2014 Spider-Verse event, all of these different Spider-people came together to stop the villainous Morlun. He’s now back for revenge and deadlier than ever in the sequel – Spider-Geddon.

Just like Spider-Verse, Spider-Geddon is a massive story with heaps of tie-ins. To help make sense of everything I’ve put together this handy reading order. As an added bonus, I’ve included release dates and creative teams too.

Soon you’ll be able to swing into this Spidey-event with ease. Enjoy!

Do I Need To Read The Tie-Ins?

No. The tie-ins are designed to be optional and for those who want to expand the story further. They explore a certain character and how the events of the main story are affecting them or are a side story that’s happening in the background.

My recommendation is to read the core Spider-Geddon series and dip your toes into the tie-ins if you’re enjoying them. You can choose which tie-ins based on the plot elements you want to know more about or based on the characters that appeal to you.

I’ve placed the tie-ins in the recommended reading order, as they will often spin out of specific plot-points of the main series. Having them on the list gives you a better context of where you should read your tie-ins of choice.
