<r>I discovered this LEGENDS reading order I made for myself. This may not be how others organize it, but I tried to order them in a way it would make more sense as a story, while trying to remain faithful to the numbered parts (on the covers). The Cosmic Boy mini is particularly flexible.<br/> <br/...

<t>It depends on how much fine combing you'd like to do. You won't be missing out on key scenes with certain issues (Invasion or the Millennium tie-ins for example).
