Or if you only want to read one of them, read Ultimate Spiderman. There's also Ultimate Comics Spiderman which picks up after the end of Ultimate Spiderman.

Comics != Comic Books. Comics are terrible strips in newspapers. ;P
Read resident evil, and the walking dead if you're a zombie fag like myself. If not, I'd go for ultimate X-Men, as comp said. It's fucking badass.

I also read a companion piece that came out right after it called History of the DC Universe. It definitely helped to give a lot of relevance to what I had just read. For as messy as the whole thing was, I've gotta say, I'm very glad I read it. I know people say to stay away from the big "event" titles but hey, sue me. I like em (don't actually sue me).
Brad wrote:It was pretty appropriate timing since I had also just read volume 1 of the Sinestro Corps War in the Green Lantern series, and it features the Anti-Monitor and a lot of other stuff that makes more sense after reading CoIE. Now I'm planning on going through and catching up on Infinite Crisis, and much to Daniel's dismay, I'll probably check out Final Crisis as well.

dwchang wrote:Lastly, not to spoil anything in Infinite Crisis, but chronology wise I think it comes before Sinestro Corps War. I could be wrong, but I think that's where the Anti Monitor makes his reappearance. Again, after reading Crisis, Infinite Crisis should be relatively easy to get into although technically speaking the big event prior to Infinite Crisis was Identity Crisis (which is also good).
So in short, Crisis of the Infinite Earths -> Identity Crisis -> Infinite Crisis -> 52 -> Countdown -> Final Crisis. Sprinkled with other "big events" that are self-contained in a particular series (i.e. Green Lantern: Rebirth, etc.).
Brad wrote:Infinite Crisis does indeed happen before Sinestro Corps. In "Wanted: Hal Jordan" (..I think) there's actually a one-page chapter break where it states that in between these 2 issues, the events of Infinite Crisis occurred, and the story picks up one year later.
