All the way back in 2006, Marvel released the cosmic event Annihilation. It was massive in scale, bold in ambition, and brought back a legion of Marvel’s cosmic characters, many who hadn’t been used in some time, in order to stop Annihilus’ Annihilation Wave from destroying everything. The result was comics that are critically-acclaimed, fan favourites, spawned many sequels, and eventually paved the way for the modern interpretation of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Now in 2019, Marvel has brought the Annihilation name back for a new mini-event called Annihilation: Scourge. Although, this time around, Annihulis is not the enemy but has banded heroes together to stop a brand new cosmic threat.

So you don’t miss any of the action, I have put together the Annihilation: Scourge Reading Order Guide. Read on to find out information on how to read the comics, which heroes are involved, release dates, and much more.

How to Read Annihilation: Scourge

Fans of the original Annihilation event will remember that parts of it were broken up into different concurrent miniseries which could be read any in any order you like, but were book-ended by a one-shot and then the 12-part miniseries.

Annihilation: Scourge works in a similar way, but on a much smaller scale. It begins with Annihilation: Scourge Alpha and ends with Annihilation: Scourge Omega. In between are a batch of character-centric one-shots which act as the middle of the story. These can be read in any order you wish as long as they’re between the Alpha and Omega issues.
