House of M Reading Order

House of M was a Brian Michael Bendis led 2005 X-Men/Avengers crossover event borne out of the aftermath of Avengers Disassembled, it is not the biggest but it is really well woven together and perhaps one of the best Marvel crossovers of the 2000s.

Interestingly, back in 2005 I would not have said that and the House of M reading order below would not be the same. A few tie ins were written a few years after the main event to flesh out Magneto’s rise to power and the events seen by the lesser characters. Either way, welcome to the House of M reading order.

11 trades and 62 issues is what you’ll need to get the complete HoM set.

House of M Trade Reading Order Checklist

These are the trades you’ll need to pick up, below this list we’ll give you an annoying list of when to pick up one trade, then put it down to read another to mirror the issue by issue reading afterwards.

You’ve got 8 trade paperbacks to get, some of which are getting very expensive to get a hold of now. House of M can be easily enjoyed without reading every issue so don’t feel that you’ll miss out on much if you don’t get one.

There is no omnibus in 2022 which is a scandal.
