The Spider-Verse Saga has been one of the most popular Spider-Man stories of the past decade. Starting in 2014 with Spider-Verse, it saw Peter Parker teaming up with dozens of alternate universe versions of Spider-Man to save the Web of Life from Morlun and the Inheritors. Since then, there’s been a sequel event, and elements of it inspired the incredibly popular Into The Spider-Verse animated film.

Now it’s time for the saga’s third instalment, the ominously sounding End of the Spider-Verse. Morlun is back, but this time he has company in the monstrous Shathra. Peter Parker will need to get the Spider-Army back together to save the day again!

Don’t miss out on the spider-action with the End of the Spider-Verse reading order. It lists the issues you need to read, plus it has background reading, annotations, release dates, and heaps more.

Soon you’ll be swinging into this huge comic book story with ease.

Do I need to know what is going on in Amazing Spider-Man?

While the original Spider-Verse was serialised in Amazing Spider-ManEnd of the Spider-Verse will be running in the adjectiveless Spider-Man series instead. This series will run parallel to Amazing Spider-Man and acknowledges plot elements happening in that series, such as Spidey’s new costume and a sub-plot involving Norman Osborn.

However, don’t worry too much if you haven’t been reading Amazing Spider-Man. Most of these elements will be superficial and shouldn’t get in the way of the End of the Spider-Verse story the creative team is trying to tell.
