Spider-Verse Reading Order

Spider-Verse is a 2014 major storyline featuring practically all Spider people who have ever existed and some new ones as they team up to defend themselves from The Inheritors who seek to consume them all and feed off of their force.

Fans of the CGI Spider-Verse film may be a little lost as the connection is there in name only and both have completely different storylines. It is written mainly by Dan Slott but the lore involved was created subtly over a long period of time by different writers.

I personally loved the Spider-Verse storyline from start to finish and thought it was some of Dan Slott’s best work in all honesty. It’s gripping from start to finish and an absolute treat for any Spider-Man fan. It’s fabulously paced and complex enough to keep you hooked from start to finish. You don’t need to read all issues to enjoy it but it is recommended for the full picture of just how epic the battle between Morlun and The Inheritors and the Spider-People is.

Reading the Spider-Verse can be done in two ways – through trade paperbacks and collected editions or issue by issue.
