So, I finally jump on the Marvel Cosmic Universe, and agree that these are one of the better storylines from Marvel. Till a few weeks back, I had no knowledge of any cosmic character, and was at a loss in what order to start reading.

I finally managed to "smart-list" my collection, and the results are here for all to see, share, and comment. Instead of one linear storyline, I find it better to arrange these stories as 4 different groups, that ultimately meet at one point (mostly the "War of Kings"). The list are heavily influenced by some "primers" from The weekly crisis, which I have converted into a cbz file attached at the end of this post.
I've never read any of Marvel's cosmic titles, have no clue who Vulcan is, how he took over the Shi'ar Empire and know nothing about who or what an Inhuman is. Where can I find out more about them?
Also worth mentioning are pages at amazon, multiversity, marvel message boards, and random thoughts escaping.

Using Custom Fields:


  • Chronology Status: Spans one or more alternate series
  • Chronology: System-wide, spans many Chronology status, useful to bring all books of a chronology under one list
  • Chronology Rank: A numerical field. More than books can have the same rank.
  • Chronology Number: System-wide, spans entire chronology, different from alternate number

How to browse/arrange:
  • Group by Chronology
  • Stack by Chronology Rank & then by Chronology Status
  • Arrange by Chronology Rank



Inputting Chronology Number (can also do manually, but this is an easy way):
  • Use built-in autonumber wizard to input alternate number (this is temporary)
  • Use Data Manager to copy Alterbnate Number into Chronology Number
  • Delete Alternate Numbers

Annihilation was so good. I don't read that much of this stuff otherwise though. :/

I like how you have grouped them all.
It's easier to read for Marvel newbies like me.
So these are all complete right?
