We’ve been quietly updating our reading orders over the past few months. We’ve received some great contributions and the reading orders are getting better.
We’re also looking into various database imports that would help to quickly add characters and creators to our lists to make the filtering functionality more complete. In particular, I’m waiting on this to be able to update the Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor reading order (which will see some important changes, as I have just reviewed the first phase of the “Bendis Era” of these titles, including solo titles of that era including Ellis and Fraction’s Iron Man, Amazing Spider-Man and Brubaker’s Captain America).
We’re also busy with other non-comic related stuff, which slowed down our article publications and Facebook activity. This should return in September/October.
Marvel Reading Order Updates
- Spider-Man Reading Order – May 6th
- Marvel NOW! reading order – June 19th
- X-Men reading order – July 14th
We’ve also added an archive of old list, if you want to keep using a previous list. From now on, all major updates will see the older list added to the archive. A change list was just not in the cards with the methods used to produce these lists, so the next best thing was to keep the old ones around for comparison.
