Dawn of X Reading Order

Dawn of X is a 2019 reboot relating to the X-Men series of comic books, written and given direction mostly by Jonathan Hickman. It is an outstanding storyline with a lot of depth and perhaps a few too many tie ins – this has led to several Dawn of X reading orders with many of them conflicting slightly.

In all honesty, you could follow any Dawn of X reading order and enjoy just the same, reading one or two out of order will not sully the experience Hickman and Marvel want you to have.

As a prelude, House of X/Powers of X is essential reading and if you enjoyed Dawn of X then it follows straight into X of Swords and then into Reign of X – this whole series would be Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men run or the Krakoa Era.

The issue by issue reading order has 112 entries making it one of the longest reading orders we’ve done. Quite hefty and rather expensive!

Dawn of X Trade Reading Order

X-Men by Jonathan Hickman Omnibus

Hickman’s run was so big he got his own Omnibus but it barely touches the sides of Dawn of X. But, it will get you issues #1-#11 and two Giant-Size X-Men issues. Its also gives you some of the issues from X of Swords which is a bonus.

Note: You will get X-Men issues in a couple of the below trades so there will be some repeats.

Second note: The order of the volumes is not the order to be read – but they still CAN be read in that order and you will enjoy it.
