When Marvel announced 1. FCBD 2016: Captain America — Of course, it’s about Steve Rogers, but after his story, there’s another one, a prelude written by Dan Slott that shows Peter intervening between Rhino and Kingpin. (could also be found in Amazing Spider-Man: Worldwide Vol. 4 TPB)
Then, we go to “Before Dead No More”:
2. Amazing Spider-Man #16 to 19 — Like all those events, everything don’t start abruptly, especially with a series as big as Amazing Spider-Man. So, there is some teasing, clues and stories that put in places everything needed for the event.
And then, The Clone Conspiracy story-arc:
Like all these events, there’s a main series and a few tie-ins. So, The Clone Conspiracy is obligatory reading. I would not miss the Amazing Spider-Man tie-ins too. Silk and Prowler add interesting things, but are more optional.
- The Clone Conspiracy #1
- Amazing Spider-Man #20 (tie-in)
- Prowler #1 (tie-in)
- The Clone Conspiracy #2
- Amazing Spider-Man #21 (tie-in)
- Silk #14 (tie-in)
- Prowler #2 (tie-in)
- The Clone Conspiracy #3
- Amazing Spider-Man #22 (tie-in)
- Silk #15 (tie-in)
- Prowler #3 (tie-in)
- The Clone Conspiracy #4
- Amazing Spider-Man #23 (tie-in)
- Silk #16 (tie-in)
- Prowler #4 (tie-in)
- The Clone Conspiracy #5
- Amazing Spider-Man #24 (tie-in)
- Silk #17 (tie-in)
- Prowler #5 (tie-in)
The End ? Not really, there’s always more.
- The Clone Conspiracy: Omega — an epilogue to the event that reveals the fate of a few key characters.
