There are so many alternate versions of Spider-Man swinging around the Marvel Multiverse. Some of these Spider-People, such as Miles Morales and Spider-Woman, share the same universe as the Peter Parker we know and love. Others are from alternate universes and have a unique spin on the Spidey formula.

Dozens of these different Spider-People came together to stop the villainous Morlun and his family in the 2014 Spider-Verse event. He’s now back for revenge and deadlier than ever in Spider-Geddon.

Do I need to read the Spideer-Geddon tie-ins?

No. The tie-ins are designed to be optional and for those who want to expand the story further. They explore particular characters and what is happening to them. These issues operate on the periphery of the main events happening in Spider-Geddon #0-5.

I recommend starting with the core Spider-Geddon story. You can then decide if you enjoy it enough to expand your experience beyond these issues. You can choose the tie-ins you want to read based on plot elements you want to know more about or 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 in the list gives you a better context of where you should read your tie-ins of choice.

Where can I find Spider-Geddon comics?

Spider-Geddon can be found at comic book shops, online stores, eBay, and Amazon/Kindle. You can also read it as part of the Marvel Unlimited service.
