    Default AoXM Reading Order?

    Iíve been reading some of the books Iíve missed since 2014 and Iím a bit sick of Gold (surprise surprise) and need an intermission. Didnít think Iíd ever end up reading AoXM because the summary I saw coupled with posts on here made it sound like a shitshow but Iím actually intrigued by some of the bajillion limited series and by the fact that it seems to be written entirely by new blood. basically morbid curiosity got me

    but since thereís so many limiteds i was wondering if i have to read them in any order? Aside from alpha at the start and omega at the end (or vice versa idk) Iím a lil lost puppy. And I guess if anyone knows anything thatíll dissuade me or persuade me even more you can drop those too, up to you. Thanks!!

    Yup.

    I would recommend start with Alpha as expected and just reading each series separately. There are points where each series are supposed to cross-over but the timeline doesn't make sense.

    I would agree, but I would say start with the eXtermination mini so you know what happened to the O5, then go Uncanny X-Men 1-10, then AoX Alpha, then read the first issue of each mini, the second, etc, then Age of Xman Omega (I think that's what it's called).

    Wouldn't hurt (or maybe it would depending on who you ask) to read Uncanny 11+ before Omega so you know that those who were left behind and not in X-Man Land were experiencing.

    Ick, guess I’ll start with the beginning of Rosenberg’s uncanny. Messed up timelines? Perfect. Won’t even bother doing the mental gymnastics and just enjoy the ride

    Yeah Uncanny 1-10 is basically Jean and the crew trying to figure out what's going on in the world as Nate and his "Four Horsemen" show up. Uncanny 11-22ish is when Rosenberg does his whole controversial run with Cyclops and the gang while everyone else is in Nate's pocket reality/dimension/universe/world/planet/microwave oven.

    Start by throwing that whole volume of Uncanny X-Men into a dumpster for recyclables.
