Is there a site that lists the reading order for the Ultimate Universe books for Marvel? I have found some forum posts on other sites, but trying to find something official.

It's just like the normal Marvel Universe: Except for crossover events, each book has it's own storyline. So just read the books in the order they're published in.

As for crossover events, that gets a bit convoluted. I know that Ultimate Six, Ultimate Secret, and Ultimate Nightmare all take place before Ultimatum, but I'm not sure in what order. Ultimatum takes place immediately following Ultimates 3.

The bulk of my curiosity pertains to the period between Ultimatum and the Death of Spiderman. I have read through all the Spiderman trades and am past the halfway point in X-men.

After Ultimatum is where I got off the Ultimate bandwagon. I was a fan of Ultimates and Ultimate Fantastic Four. Ultimate FF ended after that, and Ultimates never did get back to the same quality that was Ultimates 1 & 2 and Ultimate Power. So I won't be much help for that, sorry.

Ultimates 1 & 2 are must-reads, IMO. They're great adult takes on the Avengers that are very well written, and has very good, realistic looking artwork. Ultimate Power is basically the original Ultimates vs. Squadron Supreme, and it's done very well.

Probably the best way to get any of this stuff is in TPB form, right? That's what I have been doing.

I'd be willing to bet you could find the singles cheaper here on CCL.
