Your regular guide to exactly how Secret Wars-y today’s Secret Wars crossover titles are. Individual titles have different levels of connection to the rest of the Battleworld. If you want to read titles that have a greater or a lesser connection to the whole, as far as individual issues are concerned, maybe this will help…
Infinity Gauntlet #1
Not one mention or reference beyond the logo… but what a beautiful book.
Inhumans: Attilan Rising #1
MODOK Assassin #1
And this is the most. The creation of the universe and status quo by Doom, the lands around Killville where Baron Zemo rules and MODOK smashing up Sentinels that crossover the border and a very familiar Thor that gets in the way.

Secret Wars Journal #1
Sheriffs, barons, god Doom and folks sent to the Shield for their trangressions – for the first half. And then nary a mention for the second…
X-Men ’92 #1
Barons and mention of Doom give this game of laser-tag…
Where Monsters Dwell #1

No mention of Doom, no mention of barriers, just a really entertaining comic book. As for crossing from one world to another, there are no Thors – but there is a crack of lightning. But for that it gets…
So, if you are a fan of the Battleworld or not, you now have a better choice to make….
