…wait, that title doesn’t sound right.
Miles here! Our next two episodes will be about the Mutant Massacre, Marvel’s first-ever X-event. It’s super depressing; huzzah! (Just like a lot of other X-events, come to think of it.)
Anyway! Since the Mutant Massacre involves eleven issues of five and a half different titles and doesn’t have distinct chapter numbers the way later events do, we thought it might be helpful to post a reading order for those following along. For the sake of simplicity, I’ll post the order we decided to use in our upcoming episodes.
(Of note: every single one of these except Power Pack #27 is on Marvel Unlimited right now.)
The Mutant Massacre, X-Men side (Episode 65):
- Uncanny X-Men #210
- Uncanny X-Men #211
- New Mutants #46
- Uncanny X-Men #212
- Uncanny X-Men #213
The Mutant Massacre, X-Factor side (Episode 66):
- X-Factor #9
- X-Factor #10
- Thor #373
- Thor #374
- Power Pack #27
- X-Factor #11
Daredevil #238 is technically a tie-in too, but it’s a loose enough one that we’ll be skipping it.
For an alternate reading order–including a very handy flow chart–we recommend the Mutant Massacre guide at UncannyXMen.net.
We’ll see you – and a ton of dead Morlocks – soon!
EDITED TO ADD: Andrew Vestal hooked us up with this perversely cheery Official Mutant Massacre Flow Chart that Marvel published in ’86. So, that’s a thing:
