Comic Book Reading Order: Marvel’s 2023 Event GANG WAR

Contents

The complete reading order for Gang War

The latest event for Marvel Comics is about to wrap up and Marvel Unlimited just dumped half the event on the app, so I figured a reading order would be helpful. The core series happens in Amazing Spider-Man #37-44, with a lot of tie in issues; there are 38 issues in total, including the prequel, tie in, and epilogue issues.

Here is Marvel’s synopsis on the event:

Spinning out of Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr.’s hit run of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, GANG WAR will see a war declared between the gang lords of New York City, causing chaos throughout the Big Apple. As villains fight villains and crime envelops the city, Peter Parker will launch his own war!

It’s General Spidey at the helm, leading a group of heroes that includes fellow Spider-Man Miles Morales, She-Hulk, Daredevil, and Spider-Woman. Their goal: take down the super-gangs in under 48 hours. But what does Mayor Luke Cage and the city’s strong anti-vigilante laws have to say about it? Will Mary Jane, AKA Jackpot, gamble on getting involved? And is Shang-Chi a friend or foe? 

Starting in November, prepare for the war with special prelude issues under the banner of GANG WAR: FIRST STRIKE! Then, the event officially begins in December’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #39, before tying into some of your favorite series and launching all-new titles!

Read on to discover what awaits when GANG WAR erupts in December!
