Secret Wars part 6 : main series
9 issues (plus a very short #0)
Doom acquires the power to save fragments of the remaining universes and merges them together into a world that he rules over with his usual dictatorial attitude, enforced by the Thor Corps, the Thors from all surviving parallel universes. A few heroes from the 616 and Ultimate universes also survive by using ‘lifeboat’ spaceships, as do The Cabal.
At the end of Secret Wars 2, Doom’s world is called Battleworld for the first time, and a map of the parallel universe fragments making it up is shown, the obvious point to start reading the many tie-in mini series along with continuing with part of the main series (3 to 6), except for the Siege mini, which ties into and follows on from Secret Wars 6, and the Ultimate End series, which I read before Secret Wars 9.
This worked for me...
Secret Wars 0, 1, 2
Battleworld mini-series and Secret Wars 3, 4, 5, 6
Secret Wars 7, 8
Ultimate End mini-series
Secret Wars 9
My all-time favourite comic book event; complex, engaging storytelling, many high quality mini-series. Highest possible recommendation.
