For those wanting to bone up on the first Secret Wars event here is an extended reading list built using "The (Almost) Complete Marvel Crossover Guide"

Secret Wars only peripherally ties into the other books and many readers of those books thought the event mostly ignored them. You can even see some retro fitting in dialogue later in the event to fix some of the most glaring errors. (This was early days for big event writing).

Thanks for these. I had been working on one, also, but haven't actually had time to finish it.

Inspired by jkthemac, I finished my Secret Wars reading lists.
The flat reading list is attached and the smart list is in the code block below.

Secret Wars I as defined by The Comic Book Herald
Amazing Spider-Man #249 – #251 - Doubles as a pretty excellent Hobgoblin story that you could go all the way back to Amazing Spider-Man #238 for the full effect. Not necessary, but a good read for Spidey fans.

Also, while you’re in the neighborhood, I highly recommend you read Amazing Spider-Man #248. This has nothing to do with Secret Wars, but the issue includes “The Kids Who Collects Spider-Man,” which is one of the finest Spider-Man stories of all time.
I decided to put the entire Amazing Spider-Man run from 238-251.
Hulk #293 – #294

These issues actually go a long way to help explain the current state of the Hulk as we enter Secret Wars.
Because jkthemac's list also had #292 I threw that in there. Looking at the synopsis for #294 I suspect his list is correct and #294 won't belong, but I've not read it to confirm or deny my suspicion. I doubt it will hurt any except that it might have stuff about the Hulk's return from the Secret Wars before you even read The Secret Wars.

Create a new smart list, click the query button, and replace all of the text in that dialog with the code below:

I've started reading my Secret Wars list, and that's a lot of extra comics in there. I've made it into the Hulk issues, and I've seen almost nothing of the Secret Wars itself beyond some computers shorting out in a couple of panels and Professor Xavier suffering from some sort of attacks:



The Spidey stories are really fun and I'm enjoying the different style of these classic comics from the current 'written for the trade' style of comics. But if you're disinclined to read a lot of extra stuff I guess I would follow the advice on the Comic Book Herald:
For the most part, you can read the original twelve issues of Secret Wars without paying much attention to the prelude tie-ins that announced the coming of Secret Wars. They largely just allude to a powerful presence before our heroes and villains find Battleworld hanging out in Central Park and are shot off into space.

I hope you can create your own reading list for that title ;).

To clarify, in last panel of The Incredible Hulk #294 The Hulk walks into the portal to Battleworld and in the first panel of #295 he walks out. Of course only issue one of secret Wars had been published at this stage which made the event a little odd.

These issues are even more confused in Spider-Man with the famous Black Costume, and The Thing where Ben stays on Battleworld.

For more on the main books it is well worth listening to the Comic Geek Speak podcasts where they went into depth on each issue of the main title and discussed how it impacted some of the surrounding issues.

What I find interesting is how the continuity gets messed up and then slowly fixed as the series goes on. Either the other writers or the fans were chipping in and advising.

I finished Secret Wars. It was pretty fun, and after reading my entire reading list I concur with Comic Book Herald's assertion that you can safely get away with reading just the 12-issue Secret Wars series. It's a fun blast-from-the-past to read the surrounding issues but really not necessary.

I've started on Secret Wars II, and after the first issue of Secret Wars II I'm thinking that people who say Secret Wars II is horrible are likely correct.

So, continuing the Comic Book Herald Secret Wars reading list I created 2 Secret Wars III lead-up lists.
The first lead-up is here. It's rather massive, and for whatever reason the smart list really, really doesn't want to keep Thanos in order. The rest are okay. It encompasses Infinity, which I have a separate list for, so I did a minimal reading order of that. It also has Original Sin, but I just copy-pasted my reading order for that inline.
