View Full Version : Avengers comic help!

09-28-2013, 09:45 PM
I've stocked up some avengers omnibus/hardcovers and was wondering what order I should read the in.

So I've read the following:

Brubaker Cap Run, all 3 omnibus'
Pak Hulk run, Planet Hulk through WWHulks
Straczyski Thor Omnibus
Ultimate Spider-Man Omnibus Vol.1 (supposedly a vol.2 in the works)
and the New a men omnibus

What I have waiting:
Civil War omnibus/hc
The New Avengers omnibus vol 1
Age of Ultron Hard cover that just released

Wondering what my reading order should look like on those remaining books, and if I should pick up some more for continuity sake. ( etc mighty avengers and dark avengers omnibus')

I got civil war because it was mentioned in cap omnibus, so I'm assuming it comes first. Then I got new avengers because I was told it's pretty captain America focused. I'm fine with branching out to new Heros, but my main favorite are those who are in the avengers movie. ( cap and hulk mostly, but Thor omnibus was cool, so I'd consider ironman omnibus too)

I like more modern comic art and writing. I've tried but the older stuff I lose interest in.

Any help or suggestions would be awesome, thanks guys

The best Avenger stuff is the old stuff

Although I am not familiar with many of the storylines, I have read some of the issues contained in these collections. For timeline sake (and your mind's sanity) read them as follow:

New Avengers Omnibus
Civil War
Age of Ultron

As far as I know, the New Avengers omnibus contains material from vol. 1 and some crossover material with Civil War and others. One great thing about omnibuses is that if supplemental reading is required, the books will let you know between issues. So having the Civil War HC will come in handy. Age of ultron is newer, so you should leave it for last.

Good luck!

Hear, hear. Love the new stuff as well, but in my humble opinion you cannot beat the silver/bronze age classics.
You should really look into the Masterworks. Volume 13 is out now which is up to issue 128 of the original run.

Why is "the ultimates" omnibus so expensive online?

Also, a lot of people I know like the ultimate captain America. What do I need to read to get all the info about ultimate cap?

I have an enormous reading list, issue by issue if you want me to send you that :) if anything you can start the ultimate Spidey omnibus first since that s a different universe. My reading list starts from Avengers Disassembled all the way up to All-New MRvel NOW. The reading order can get very very hairy in the events though, assuming you want to read the main storyline as well as the tie ins in the correct order.

Haha there's always an omnibus for events a few months after it's released. And if you're lucky, it'll include all the tie ins as well but most of the time those are collected in their own OHC's

It's been out-of-print for quite a while now. Recently Marvel has sent some omnibus books back to print. I'm hoping this one will get a reprint soon.

It doesn't have an official omnibus yet. They did release 7 OHCs making up the event. The Spider-Man and Underside volumes fetch quite a bit being OOP. The rest are getting close, but should still be readily available.
