    I dislike this image because I feel the "Pre-Annihilators" comics section is a mess and shouldn't even be there. If one wants to read various Silver Surfer volumes and whatnot, that's great, but I do not believe they have any kind of real or significant impact on the modern Marvel Cosmic line of stories that Giffen and DnA produced. I'm pretty sure Requiem isn't even in continuity, though it is a great story with fantastic art.

    Here's a list of trades I cobbled together at one point:

    Select Early Marvel Cosmic To Help Make Sense Of Infinity-Related Books
    Silver Surfer Omnibus [Not Starlin]
    Avengers vs. Thanos TPB [first half is Life of Captain Marvel, second half follows the Death of Captain Marvel found below]
    Captain Marvel: The Death of Captain Marvel HC
    Warlock by Jim Starlin: The Complete Collection TPB

    Infinity Gauntlet and Thanos-centric sequels

    Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus
    Infinity Gauntlet Aftermath TPB
    Infinity War TPB
    Infinity Crusade Vol 1 & 2 TPB
    Marvel Universe: The End HC (also known as Thanos: The End)
    Thanos: Redemption TPB (previously collected as Thanos: Epiphany! and Thanos: Samaritan!)

    Annihilation and modern cosmic Marvel
    Annihilation Classic HC [Placed here for background info if you're interested in the history and origins of the major players]
    Annihilation Omnibus (or Annihilation HCs Vol. 1-3)
    Annihilation: Conquest Vol. 1-2 HC
    Nova HC (or Nova TPBs Vol. 1 and 2)
    Guardians of the Galaxy - Volume 1: Legacy HC
    Nova Vol. 3: Secret Invasion TPB
    Nova Vol. 4: Nova Corps TPB
    Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2: War of Kings - Book 1 HC
    --- OPTIONAL: X-Men: Deadly Genesis HC [Shi'ar Background]
    --- OPTIONAL: Uncanny X-Men: The Rise and Fall of the Sh'iar Empire HC [Shi'ar Background]
    --- OPTIONAL: X-Men: Emperor Vulcan TPB [Shi'ar Background]
    --- OPTIONAL: Decimation: Son of M TPB [Inhumans Background]
    --- OPTIONAL: Silent War TPB [Inhumans Background]
    Road to War of Kings TPB
    War of Kings HC
    Nova Vol. 5: War of Kings HC
    Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3: War of Kings - Book 2 HC
    Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 4: Realm of Kings HC
    Realm of Kings HC
    Nova Vol. 6: Realm of Kings TPB
    The Thanos Imperative HC
    Annihilators HC
    Annihilators: Earthfall TPB

    Select Cosmic Marvel NOW
    Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1: Cosmic Avengers
    Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2: Angela
    Guardians of the Galaxy/All-New X-Men: The Trial of Jean Grey
    Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3: Guardians Disassembled
    Nova, Vol. 1: Origin
    Nova, Vol. 2: Rookie Season
    Noval, Vol. 3: Rookie Corpse
    Silver Surfer, Vol. 1: New Dawn


    I don't know where in continuity Thanos: The Infinity Revelation HC goes since I have not read it yet and these Marvel OGNs can fall anywhere in continuity. My guess would be after the Annihilators books if Starlin is preserving the continuity between the Thanos: Redemption trade through the modern Marvel cosmic events, since I see the Annihlators mentioned in the book's preview.

    In the past I usually received my IST packages 7 days from the order date, which is pretty damn fast for standard shipping, so I'm crossing my fingers that this move doesn't negatively effect me...


    Starting from post #370 to #377 there is a similar discussion.

    To summarize: 1) Yes the move had an impact on orders and it even caused one members order to get lost in the mayhem until he emailed them. 2) Possibly OOS temporarily? Did you check your order to see if each book has been "Picked & Scanned"? 3) Their distributor was/is having software issues further delaying orders.


    I'm assuming anyone who has had issues already emailed them, but if you haven't definitely do so.

    Omnibus/OHC: Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus, Annihilation Omnibus, Annihilation Conquest Vol. 1 & 2, Nova Vol. 1 (series is not completed in OHC), War of Kings, Realm of Kings, Thanos Imperative, Annihilators, Infinity

    TPB Collections: Guardians of the Galaxy Complete Collection Vol. 1 by Abnett And Lanning (Vol. 2 is coming out later this year), Avengers vs. Thanos, Warlock Complete Collection by Jim Starlin

    Out of all of those (and there are more) I view Infinity Gauntlet and Annihilation as the "must-haves" (bolded). The rest are great, but depends on how much you want to spend and track down.

    Edit: Collecting all cosmic titles can get complicated, as you can see from kodave's list.

    Infinity Gauntlet isn't really "modern" cosmic era it's more the end of the Original Cosmic Era.

    If I were you
    1. Avengers vs Thanos
    2. Korvac Saga
    3. Death of Captain Marvel
    4. Avengers: Galactic Storm
    5. Infinity Gauntlet: Omnibus

    Avengers vs Thanos covers all the early stuff with the Original Captain Marvel, Warlock, and Thanos

    Korvac Saga is the best story with Guardians of the Galaxy and it's considered one of the greatest Avengers story of all time.

    Death of Captain Marvel is a classic story, was actually written as an original graphic novel and it sort of launches modern Thanos.

    Avengers: Galactic Storm This isn't a story that is often recommended but in a lot of ways this is the first Annihilation type story. It's a sprawling epic where the Avengers are caught in between a war of two galactic kingdoms.

    Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus which is well-praised

    Doesn't matter, since I know shit about those events.

    Thanks everyone for help!

    Hey, can you tell us what's the cost of an international shipping with IST?

    Thanks ;-)

    Fantastic List, a lot of users have asked about a cosmic reading list and this is quite good. Add in Infinity and it would be complete. I will link this in the OP.

    It varies greatly depending on what you are ordering, add items to your cart and get the shipping costs.

    They have not, but bear in mind the TPB Masterworks are released in the exact same order the hardcovers were, and it's my understanding 'Uncanny X-Men' hasn't been a line that has moved particularly fast, especially in later years.

    I had that same trouble with several orders before they moved. Last week, I placed my first order since the move and now it looks like it might take the post office just as long or longer to deliver from Tennesee as it does for them to deliver my CGN orders from California......annoying. I hope it's only a holiday weekend anomaly.

    Really? I think hardcover numbers suggest it does as well or better than the average masterwork.
