After reading The Ultimates 1 and 2, I strongly suggest you pick up:
Ultimate Galactus Trilogy and Ultimate Human.
They work very much like spin-offs to The Ultimates 1 and 2 books, sort of like semi-sequels. Both of them take place in-between The Ultimates 1 and 2 and are just as good; some would even argue that they're better.
Ultimate Wolverine VS Hulk is also excellent and takes place during the events of The Ultimates 2.
Great list! Really helped me a lot to order my comics :).
I noticed that Ultimate X-Men #086-088 are missing in your list. They should propably go after Ultimate X-Men #085.
I believe 'Ultimate Spider-Man Annual #1' might need to be moved earlier in the order. In 'Ultimate X-Men #54' Kitty references the events of the Annual.
I really enjoy the ultimate spider man series
Has the reading order in first post been updated with all the forum feedback?
I was wondering what the different colours represented in the reading order?
I know it's been asked before but, where does Ultimate Comics: X go? I'm planning to use this list to see if my girlfriend starts reading the UU so, knowing where UCX goes would help.
So to update the reading order, this is how I feel fits best post-death of Spider-Man.
POST DEATH OF SPIDER-MAN (From Ultimate Spider-Man #1-5 to Ultimate X-Men #7-12 is the same as what's posted on page one in Plawsky post. After that is the reading order I've set up.)
Ultimate Spider-man #1-5 - Who is Miles Morales?
Ultimates #1-4 - The Republic is Burning
Ultimate Hawkeye #1-4
Ultimate X-Men #1-6
Ultimates #5-6 - The World
Ultimate Spider-man #6-12
Ultimates #7-12 - Two Cities, Two Worlds
Ultimate X-Men #7-12
Spider-Men #1-5 (While it can be argued it takes place during DWF, UWS, it fits for me before the event. But this could be changed depending on how future issues of both Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimates go. But for now it goes here.)
DIVIDED WE FALL, UNTIED WE STAND
-Ultimate X-Men #13-14 (#13 is the prelude)
-Ultimate Spider-Man #13-14
-Ultimate X-Men #15
-Ultimate Spider-Man #15-16
-Ultimate X-Men #16-17
-Ultimate Spider-Man #17 (though it could take place between Ultimates #17 and #18, but it feels better here)
-Ultimate X-Men #18
-Ultimate X-Men #18.1 (DWF/UWS X-Men Epilogue)
-Ultimate Spider-Man #18 (DWF/UWS Spider-Man Epilogue)
-Ultimates #18.1 (DWF/UWS Ultimates Epilogue)

Pull: Avengers, New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, Captain America, Superior Spider-Man, Superior S.M. Team Up, UC:Ultimates, UC:SpiderMan, UC:XMen, Chew, Invincible, & Smallville.
I'll ask here, instead of a new thread.
What exactly is the point of Ultimate Spider-man 39 and a half? It's not been mentioned again and Cats and Kings (A bugle centric storyline) didn't even acknowledge it. Was there a purpose?
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
Issue 1/2 is a favorite of mine, if only because it does such a fantastic job of fleshing out Urich and Jameson, two characters I wish Bendis would use more often.
