Marvel INFINITY: Checklist & Reading Order

November 30, 2013     / / / /

Marvel INFINITY: Comic Event

While the most powerful Avengers journey into outer space in an attempt to unite the universe against the Builders, Thanos attacks the Earth in a six-issue event written by Jonathan Hickman (Avengers, New Avengers) with artwork by a rotating team of artists including Jim Cheung (New Avengers: Illuminati, Young Avengers), Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force), and Dustin Weaver (S.H.I.E.L.D.). Featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Inhumans, Thunderbolts, and many more.

Why the Lists?

I have recently gotten back into comics, with this being my first big read since Ultimate X-men hit the shelves back in the 2001. One of my many traits is being a completes and always having the need to collect them all. Because of this, I needed to find a complete list of all the Marvel INFINITY comic from both the main story arc and the tie-ins. On top of that I also wanted to know what was the “best” order to read them in. While you would assume finding those list online would be a breeze, it need up being more troublesome than anything. So, as a way to bring both list together in one easily accessible place, I have created this post. Please feel free to post in the comments any mistakes or suggestions you might have regarding the reading order, as this is the best order I could come up with.

Thank you for this list! I'd only recommend to have a section which lists the issues by series, meaning I can see what issues of which series I need. Like Secret Avengers - #10-11; Etc. Other than that, Love it!

    That is a great idea, I will add that to the list. Thanks for pointing that out.

Missing "Infinity: Against the Tide #1-2" in the reading order!

    timothycd - December 15, 2013 - Reply

    Thanks. I have added them both into the reading order. They would be read after INFINITY #1. I have also added them into the checklist by release date. Thanks for pointing it out.

      Thanks for all of your hard work! Once I get Heist #4, I will be complete!

GotG #8 is listed twice...

    timothycd - December 23, 2013 - Reply

    Nice catch. I have removed the first GotG #8, and recommend reading it after Avengers #22 and before Avengers #23

      Christopher Jobin Gerber - December 23, 2013 - Reply

      it should actually be after New Avengers 11 and before Infinity 5

        timothycd - December 27, 2013 - Reply

        Looking back, I believe that is where I had it before. I couldn't agree more, after taking a second look I have placed it after New Avengers #11. Thanks!
