Hi, when i started reading comics besides Batman my way into the DC Universe was to buy Infinite Crisis. And although i didn't know half of all the characters in the book, i enjoyed it a lot. After that Final Crisis, BLackest Night and Flashpoint followed.
Now i want to do the same with Marvel and read some of the "big stories" while i enjoy AvxX. But here begins the problem, because at DC you only need to buy the main series to get the complete event expirience. At Marvel so it seems you will miss a lot, if you dont read the tie-ins. Now i ask myself which of the events is the most self-contained, where i can only buy the main trade (and perhaps one or two tie-in trades as support) to get a good and entertaining read.
- House of M
- Civil War
- World War Hulk
- Secret Invasion
i hope you can help me with this and thanks for your answers.
