World War Hulk Reading Order

Here's my after-the-fact "World War Hulk Reading Order".

I saw a reading order on another site (I don't remember where) that was broken down by page. It wasn't complete and too nit-picky for me. This is the order I store mine in:

  • Heroes for Hire (2006-Present) - #13

Hulk continues his questioning of Xavier.

  • World War Hulk: X-Men - #3

Hulk demolishes all X-Men and leaves.

  • World War Hulk: Gamma Corps - #1

This could go most anywhere. It's an introduction to the

Gamma Corps

  • World War Hulk: Gamma Corps - #2

Origins of Gamma Corps members.

  • World War Hulk: Gamma Corps - #3

No time reference for this one. hulk battles Gamma Corps and gets

his neck snapped. Must be before arena.

Hulk recovers from his broken neck. Beats Gamma Corps and

heads out (for Avengers battle?)

  • World War Hulk: Front Line -#3

  • Incredible Hulk (1999-2008) - #110

  • Heroes for Hire (2006-Present) - #14

Heroes meet in arena. It is empty; must be before arena battles.

  • Heroes for Hire (2006-Present) - #15

This continues immediately after 14.

  • Avengers: The Initiative - #5

Hulk is obviously not busy with arena battles. He beats up Avengers

Shadow Initiative.

  • World War Hulk - #3

Hulk finishes arena. Dr Strange confronts him and gets his hands

crushed. Dr Strange summons Zom.

  • World War Hulk - #4

Hulk defeats Dr Strange/Zom. Arena battles begin. Sentry takes

flight.

  • World War Hulk: Front Line -#4

We see some arena battles from crowd perspective.

  • Marvel Spotlight: World War Hulk

Good time to have a Spotlight.

  • World War Hulk: Gamma Files

May as well think about different Gamma characters at this point.

  • Punisher: War Journal (2007-Present) #12

Side story. Punisher fights aliens and evacuates civilians from New

York.

  • World War Hulk: Front Line -#5

We see Sentry enter the scene.

  • World War Hulk - #5

Battle between Sentry and Hulk and conclusion to WWH.

  • Incredible Hulk (1999-2008) - #111

Kind of a recap. We see the battle between Dr Strange/Zom and

Hulk as well as the battles between Hulk and Sentry. Then the

conclusion.

  • World War Hulk: Front Line -#6

Another recap from a different perspective. Also we see aftermath.

Now we are in the Aftersmash:

  • What If? Planet Hulk

I put this in Aftersmash because it felt right.

  • World War Hulk Aftersmash

Follows immediately soon after WWH #5.

  • Incredible Hulk (1999-2008) - #112

Follows sometime soon after WWH #5.

  • Incredible Hercules (2008-Present) - #113

These can just keep going in order...

  • Incredible Hercules (2008-Present) - #114

This is the last Aftersmash for Incredible Hercules. (It only

says it's Part of Aftersmash on the variant cover.) #115 carries

on the fun, but it's strictly Herc and Cho now.World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control - #1

This could be read right after Aftersmash (or while your reading

Incredible Hercules.)

  • World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control - #2

This is next.

  • World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control - #3

This one finishes up this mini (it got kinda silly.)

  • World War Hulk Aftersmash: Warbound - #1

This could be read right after Aftersmash (or while your reading

Incredible Hercules and Damage Control.)

  • World War Hulk Aftersmash: Warbound - #2

Follows immediately after #1.

  • World War Hulk Aftersmash: Warbound - #3

Amazingly, this comes after #3.

  • World War Hulk Aftersmash: Warbound - #4

Yup. This one's next!

  • World War Hulk AfterSmash: Warbound - #5

Now, we're done.

I really enjoyed WWH and the Aftersmashes as well. Aren't comics cool?

If anyone thinks the reading order should be different or if I missed something, I'd love to hear it.
