    Default reading the Marvel events. Issue by Issue or main line first?

    I'm relatively new to Marvel comics, i started reading on Marvel Unlimited early last year. I've been going through a reading order that started in the early 2000s. I'm coming up on Secret Invasion.

    There's one thing i can't make my mind up on. Is it better to read an event issue by issue in publication order or should i read the main 8 secret invasion issues and then come back and fill in the blanks with all the tie ins.

    I read Civil War issue by issue and it worked in some spots but it felt like a huge slog to keep jumping different perspectives and seeing the same thing happening over and over. When spider man does his big reveal you see it in like 8 different issues.

    Issue by issue tends to work best for me. I like the different perspectives and it's usually pretty close to chronological.

    Personally, I tend to read them as they're released. It works for me, but not everyone is the same and there's no set way to experience a comic event.

    There's really no actually chronological sequence of events, since many tie-ins tend to overlap. Still, no matter which way you decide to read them, you're still gonna get the full story. So if you miss a couple issues and wanna move on to the next main book, don't sweat it. Comics are fun, and meant to be read any way you'd like.
