I read it in that order which turned out consistent:

Prologue:

    01. Fantastic Four #533
    02. Fantastic Four #534
    03. Fantastic Four #535
    04. The New Avenegers: Illuminati #1
    05. The Incredible Hulk #88
    06. The Incredible Hulk #89
    07. The Incredible Hulk #90
    08. The Incredible Hulk #91

    Main story Planet Hulk:

    09. The Incredible Hulk #92
    10. The Incredible Hulk #93
    11. The Incredible Hulk #94
    12. The Incredible Hulk #95
    13. Giant Size Hulk #1
    14. The Incredible Hulk #96
    15. The Incredible Hulk #97
    16. The Incredible Hulk #98
    17. The Incredible Hulk #99
    18. The Incredible Hulk #100
    19. The Incredible Hulk #101
    20. The Incredible Hulk #102
    21. The Incredible Hulk #103
    22. The Incredible Hulk #104
    23. The Incredible Hulk #105

I've enjoyed that story arc a lot and besides touching slighlty Civil War in the prologue it did work as a stand-alone. The story reminded me in large parts of Spartacus which worked great placing the always enraging Hulk in the middle of it and the humor was well paced (HULK SLASH! :lol: ). Loved the cameo of that stone guy from an early Thor issue I've read in The Order. And having...

Silver Surfer


...on the very same planet with a reasonable explanation was a great surprise.

Only downside: Now I'm hooked for the conclusion but Irishmetal's reading order looks discouraging to me, not knowing much about the other series involved.

Like I said in the other thread I really loved this arc. Felt very inspired by the Barsroom books to me, which I also love. The WWH reading order shouldn't be too bad. FWIR the Ant-Man, Heroes for Hire, and Front line books were very optional. The rest of the stuff is basically all of the heroes getting their asses kicked.

Yeah, I think Doom suggested simply reading WWH #1-5 first, and then reading through the other titles individually. I read it according to a reading order, and it often felt like there was a bit too much going on. Most of the stories were pretty well contained within their respective series, although obviously most of them happened before WWH #5, I'm not sure it would hurt much for them to be read afterwards. There was a particular story that I really enjoyed in World War Hulk, I can't remember which series it was.. but it basically involved Korg enlisting the aid of a detective to figure out the mysterious death of a certain character. Something about it really captured my imagination.

I just re-read this... man, this is just iconic.... easily one of the best Hulk stories ever.... the cast, themes, & storyline... Pak just nails them..... and coming off of Civil War, this is exactly what you need to forget about all that ugliness and get back to a story that is what you want from a comic book....

Which isn't hard considering most hulk stories are AWWWWWWFUL.
