I’m still up to my eyes trying to cover all things Secret Wars, so unfortunately I haven’t gotten back on the wagon with updates to the Spider-Man Chronology.
The process I’ve used to create this list was to first compile every piece of information I could find online about Spider-Man appearances: regular series, mini-series, guest shots, etc. Then use my own knowledge and as many existing chronologies on the web as possible to arrange this “master list” into a potential reading order.

As of today, you have a third option.
One of the secret projects I’ve been working on for Gabbing Geek has been this definitive Spider-Man reading chronology. The goal is to incorporate as many canonical appearances as possible in an order that someone reading Spider-Man for the first time could follow. Interested? Find out more after the break.
