Doctor Strange: Damnation Reading Order Checklist

By 4 Comments

In Secret Empire, Marvel Comic’s massive and controversial event of 2017, Hydra destroys the city of Las Vegas. Now in 2018, Doctor Strange has taken it upon himself to amend the catastrophe by raising the City Of Sin from the ground. The only problem is that he has now inadvertently released Mephisto, Marvel’s version of the devil, on the city. Whoops! Now the Doctor Strange will need the help of as many heroes that he can get his hands on in order to fix this mess.

This is the premise of Doctor Strange: Damnation, the next big Doctor Strange comic event, which also brings in Iron Fist and Scarlet Spider into the fold.

Comic book events can be really confusing. Luckily, the Doctor Strange: Damnation Reading Order Checklist is here to help. Not only does it have the recommended reading order, but also other helpful tidbits such as release dates and creative team listings too.

Soon you’ll be ready to dive into this magical event with no issues at all.

Do I Need To Read All The Tie-Ins?

The short answer: No.

The longer answer: The tie-ins are supplements to the main story. As a result, the tie-ins are optional if you just want the main story. If you want more than just the main story then check out the tie-in issues. As to which ones you choose are totally up to you and best decided based on what plot threads you’re enjoying or the characters you like.
