Marvel Fresh Start is a rebranding or relaunch of comic book publication following Marvel Legacy. So today I’m gonna share a complete reading guide for these ongoing storylines.

But before that please note one thing even though it is named as ‘Fresh Start’, it’s not really. The new issue may or may not have some references to things that happened in previous storylines.

So clearly it won’t be a reboot and some issues may even continue with the previous story. But don’t worry if you’ve never read any comics then let me tell you it might be the best time to get started. Here’s the reason:

If you’re thinking that you’ll read everything and origin of every character then just don’t. As there’s too much to read. So I will advise you to either start with your favorite character’s popular acclaimed stories or just start with this guide.

I know it’s gonna be hard but you’ll enjoy it. Treat every story as if it were self-contained. And let me tell you unlike MCU, comics are not that continuous.

But it’s a rather a collection of smaller arcs/stories/ that may occasionally remind readers that they are a part of the bigger Universe.

Part 1: Storyline of Avengers, Guardians, and Defenders

This is how you can start reading this ‘Marvel Fresh Start’. First, you will read about the storyline of Avengers, defenders, and Guardians.
