Secret Empire Reading Order (Updated 7/21)

Unlike Civil War II, Secret Empire has been pretty straight forward in terms of not having to split issues up, particularly around the main story, to have anything make sense. The only place I’ve done this (so far) here has been with the short stories in Secret Empire: Brave New World. And outside of the Invaders story which continues through each issue, all the stories are pretty stand alone and can be read anywhere. A lot of the time, like the Misty Knight and Emma Frost stories in this weeks issue, the placement is total guesswork. Placing them where I feel they make sense. But could go elsewhere. I wouldn’t get too hung up on their placement.  Especially since most (all?) of the stories are pretty inconsequential.
