Every once in a while, Marvel Comics will publish a series of trade paperbacks which collect together key stories from the Marvel Universe – epic milestones or important tales. One such series of trade paperbacks is The Amazing Spider-Man: Epic Collection, which serves up some of the best Spidey stories of the past.

If you are just getting into the Epic Collection, and you don’t know your ‘Ghosts of the Past’ from your ‘Kraven’s Last Stand’, then you may wish to know what titles are in the collection and what order they should be read. Well, that’s where this post can help you out, as it contains a chronological reading order for the books.*

*Please note: In addition to The Amazing Spider-Man: Epic Collection, the list below also includes books from the Venom: Epic Collection and the Carnage: Epic Collection, as these titles feature Spider-Man quite heavily. As these additional collections include some of the same material featured in The Amazing Spider-Man: Epic Collection, I have placed them on the list where they fit best.
