The Very Comprehensive Deadpool Masterpost

The aim of this post is to introduce new fans to Deadpool’s comics and help you identify which collections, trade paperbacks and omnibus books Deadpool’s individual stories, issues and runs can be found in as well as which order to read them. 

I will not be providing links to any pirated copies and would rather not recommend websites as prices will vary across the dozens of sites comics can be purchased from.

I have read every single issue on this list so if you have any questions or need any help please do feel free to ask me.

Main Deadpool Continuity & Reading Order

This is the bulk of the masterlist. Each of Deadpool’s main books and stories are listed below in the order which they should be read from the very beginning all the way up to, and including, his current shenanigans.
I have marked a few recommended starting points so if you do not wish to tackle the entire list there should be a starting point which suits you.

Deadpool: The Circle Chase (1993) #1 - #4
This is Deadpool’s first ever solo miniseries. It introduces Weasel, Vanessa and themes which crop up throughout the rest of Deadpool’s runs.
-Collected in; Deadpool Classic Vol. 1
or Deadpool: Beginnings Omnibus
or Deadpool The Adamantium Collection
or Deadpool & X-Force Omnibus

Deadpool: Sins of the Past (1994) #1 - #4
Deadpool’s second miniseries explores Deadpool’s relationship with his past and teases his origins.
-Collected in; Deadpool Classic Vol. 1
or Deadpool: Beginnings Omnibus
or Deadpool & X-Force Omnibus

Deadpool (1997) #-1 - #69 [A Recommended Starting Point]
This was Deadpool’s first ongoing and it ran from 1997 to 2002. Plot elements from his first and second miniseries are picked up and expanded upon here. Several writers contributed to this series, most notably Joe Kelly, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Gail Simone.
-Collected in; Deadpool Classic Vol. 1 - Vol. 9
or Deadpool by Joe Kelly Omnibus & Deadpool Classic Omnibus Vol. 1 

Agent X (2002) #1 - #15
After Deadpool (1997) ended his book was replaced by a new, similar character who shares Deadpool’s supporting cast from his last 5 issues. Deadpool returns in the final 3 issues of this series.
-Collected in; Deadpool Classic Vol. 9 & Vol. 10
or Deadpool Classic Omnibus Vol. 1

Cable & Deadpool (2004) #1 - #50 [A Recommended Starting Point]
Characters from Agent X (2002) make an appearance throughout this series which is written by Deadpool’s co-creator Fabian Nicieza. Deadpool’s relationship with Cable is one of the most loved in comics and Cable is scheduled to appear in Deadpool 2. This is a big, thematic book exploring heroism and the bigger picture.
-Collected in; Cable & Deadpool: If Looks Could Kill, The Burnt Offering, The Human Race, Bosom Buddies, Living Legends, Paved With Good Intentions, Separation Anxiety & Deadpool vs. The Marvel Universe 
or 3 Deadpool & Cable Ultimate Collection books 
or the Deadpool & Cable Omnibus

Deadpool Annual (2013) #1
Although this was released in 2013 the first half of the story explains the origin of the white caption box which makes its appearance throughout Deadpool (2008). The second half of the story leads into Deadpool (2012) so it may be worth revisiting this issue before you start that series.
-Collected in; Deadpool: The Wedding of Deadpool
or Deadpool: The Ones With Deadpool
or Deadpool Classic Vol. 18: Deadpool vs. Marvel

Deadpool (2008) #1 - #63
This is the book which was being published when Deadpool exploded into the phenomenon he is today. All 63 issues were written by Daniel Way and you can see the zany fingerprints he left on the character present in the fandom, the video game and all the ongoing books and miniseries from 2009 to 2012.
-Collected in; Deadpool: Secret Invasion, Dark Reign, X Marks The Spot, Monkey Business, What Happens In Vegas, I Rule You Suck, Space Oddity, Operation Annihilation, Institutionalized, Evil Deadpool & Dead 
or 4 Deadpool: The Complete Collection by Daniel Way books
or Deadpool by Daniel Way Omnibus Vol. 1

Uncanny X-Force (2010) #1 - #35
Running alongside Daniel Way’s Deadpool from 2010 onwards, this book was written by Rick Remender and features a more grounded Deadpool working in a team setting.
-Collected in; Uncanny X-Force: The Apocalypse Solution, Deathlok Nation, The Dark Angel Saga Book 1, The Dark Angel Saga Book 2, Otherworld & Final Execution

Deadpool vs. Thanos (2015) #1 - #4
Although this was released in 2015 its events occur before Deadpool (2012). This is a cosmic roadtrip taken by two people who hate one another.
-Collected in; Deadpool vs Thanos
or Deadpool Classic Vol. 18: Deadpool vs. Marvel

Thunderbolts (2012) #1 - #32
Daniel Way initially writes this series before Charles Soule and then Ben Acker & Ben Blacker take over. It’s Deadpool in a team setting which is less bloody than Uncanny X-Force but not as clean cut as the Avengers.
-Collected in; Thunderbolts: No Quarter, Red ScareInfinity, No Mercy, Punisher vs. The Thunderbolts
notes: Can be read alongside Deadpool (2012) although there is very little crossover. The series ends before Deadpool (2012) Original Sin.
Hawkeye vs Deadpool (2014) should be read after this series as it references its cancellation.

Deadpool (2012) #1 - #45 & Deadpool: Dracula’s Gauntlet #1 - #13  [A Recommended Starting Point]
This is the beginning of the Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn era of Deadpool which is currently ongoing, the two comedians have left an impression on Deadpool and introduced a strong supporting cast which will be felt for years to come.

Mrs Deadpool and the Howling Commandos (2015) #1 - #4

-Collected in; Mrs Deadpool and the Howling Commandos
or Deadpool Classic Vol. 19: Make War, Not Love

Deadpool & Cable: Split Second (2016) #1 - #6
Written by Cable & Deadpool writer and Deadpool co-creator Fabian Nicieza, this book lays the groundwork for some Deadpool (2015) and Uncanny Avengers (2015) stories while also standing perfectly on its own.
-Collected in; Deadpool & Cable: Split Second

Uncanny Avengers (2015) #1 - ongoing [A Recommended Starting Point]
Deadpool? In an Avengers book? That’s not a mistake. Gerry Duggan pens this series and again spotlights Deadpool in a blockbuster-level team setting.

Deadpool & the Mercs for Money (2016) #1 - #5 [Miniseries]
Written by Cullen Bunn, who penned almost every Deadpool miniseries from 2012, this is a short 'pilot series’ featuring Deadpool leading his own team. It goes as well as you’d expect.
-Collected in; Deadpool & The Mercs for Money: Vol. 0 Merc Madness
notes: Should be read before Deadpool (2015) World’s Greatest: Vol. 5 Civil War II

Spider-Man/Deadpool (2016) #1 - ongoing
The internet made this book happen, there is no denying that. The book features a lot of fanservice and some absolutely surreal storylines.

anonymous asked:

Hey, I'm pretty new to xmen, but Kurt is 1000% my fave. I was wondering which comics I should read to get more of his story! I love your blog too great stuff

Okay, first of all: there are too many books he appears in, so I just tried to list some important ones (and this not even close to listing everything!) And if you want to simply read books he is in, you really need to go through many team books.

The easy part, Nightcrawler series:

- Nightcrawler (1985-1986) - 4 issue
- Nightcrawler Vol 2 (2002-2002)- 4 issue
- Nightcrawler Vol 3 (2004-2006) - 12 issue
- Nightcrawler Vol 4 (2014-2015) - 12 issue

- X-Men: Manifest Destiny Nightcrawler #1 (May, 2009)
- X-Men Origins: Nightcrawler #1 (May, 2010)

———————————————————————————

Some important appearance/story from the beginning until now:

- Uncanny X-Men: start with his first appearance in Giant-Size X-Men #1 (1975) but I’d say read UXM of 80’s.
(AND/OR read Classic X-Men, which is a reprint of uncanny issues, but with new panels/stories!
-Classic X-Men #1-45,
-X-Men Classic #46-110)

- Excalibur (1988-1998) - a must

(After Excalibur he’s in Uncanny X-Men again - from 1998, so you can continue here )

- in 2003 he gets an origin story ‘Draco’ in Uncanny X-Men by Chuck Austen (but you need to know, it’s one of the most hated X-Men stories. For reasons.)
Chuck Austen’s run on UXM: #410-441, and Draco: #428-434 (2003)
(And before Chuck Austen, the priest story happend.)

- Uncanny X-Men by Chris Claremont from #444 (2004) (better story, good art)

- X-Men: Second Coming related books (2010) - (he dies here)

- Amazing X-Men (2014) 19 issues (resurrected) - a must
( the last solo series begins in 2014 too)

- Extraordinary X-Men (2015) -  (it’s not the best Nightcrawler story again…)

- X-Men Gold - current X-book  - (it’s ok so far)

——————————————————————————

Significant Issues: (by marvel universe wiki)

Killed foster brother (X-Men Annual #4, 1980);
first joined X-Men (Giant-Size X-Men #1, 1975);

learned Azazel is father (Uncanny X-Men #432, 2003);
died (X-Force #26, 2010)

————————————————————————

A few issues I can think of and recommend:

(there’s definitely much more!)

- Amazing Spider-man 161 & 162  (1976)

- Exiles #28-30 (2001) - (meets his daughter from another universe)
- Bizarre adventue  #27 (1981) (mentioned in his first solo series)
- What If? Vol 2 #98 (if Mystique had raised Kurt)
- Uncanny X-Men #204

—————————————————————————

A comic made exclusively for the movie: X-Men 2 (2003):

Astonishing X-Men Vol 3

- Kurt Waggoner (Kid version of Nightcrawler):

I might’ve made mistakes; in that case let me know.

anonymous asked:

Have you ever made an X-23 reading list/is there one in existence somewhere/would you ever consider making one? I recently read something with her in it and really want to know more about her :D

There are a few out there! Searching “x-23 reading list” should give you at least a few. But since you asked me I might as well give you mine! Because I love Laura Kinney A Lot.

Okay, my reading list in (roughly) chronological order would go:

  • X-23: Innocence Lost (TPB). I don’t love the art in this one, but as far as an account of where Laura comes from and her origins it’s a pretty important one. 
  • X-23: Target X (TPB). A miniseries about Laura’s life after she left the Facility. Probably my favorite Laura reading other than the Marjorie Liu run further down this list.
  • NYX #3-7. I’m not a big fan of this one for personal reasons - it features Laura’s foray into prostitution. 
  • New X-Men #20-43. Focuses on a group of younger mutant students which Laura joins.
  • X-Force vol. 3 #1-28. Laura is a member of a covert ops team for the X-Men.(Laura also appears as a member of X-Force during the X-Men crossover events of this period, including Endangered Species, Messiah CompleX, X-Necrosha, Second Coming, and Divided We Stand, but (a) she doesn’t have very large roles in any of them and (b) X-Men crossovers confuse me even more than normal crossovers.)
  • X-23 #1. A lovely little oneshot from the Mighty Marvel: Women of Marvel trade.
  • X-23: The Killing Dream (TPB). This series written by Marjorie Liu is probably my favorite X-23 run out there and I’m still sad it didn’t go longer. This is the absolute must read on this list.
  • Daken/X-23: Collision. Daken and Laura run into each other in Madripoor. 
  • X-23: Chaos Theory (TPB). Laura babysits Valeria and Franklin Richards and also hangs out with Jubilee.
  • X-23: Don’t Look Back (TPB). The final arc in Laura Kinney’s Fantastic Soul Searching Adventure. 
  • Avengers Academy #23-39. After her solo series ended, Laura joined the Avengers Academy - which is a delightful series I’d recommend in its own right.

I cannot in good conscience recommend Avengers Arena or All New X-Men as Laura reading, though she does appear in both of those books (in All New X-Men from #19 onwards). 

In the upcoming months, you can find Laura in Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy #2 and Black Widow #11. 

Other issues I know Laura is in that I’m still tracking down - Venom #13, 13.1-13.4, and 14, otherwise known as the Circle of Four arc and her early Uncanny X-Men appearances (#450-451 and #455-460).
