DC Events Timeline and Recommended Reading

Reading everything is pretty much impossible. But if you want the best of the best, and the most important events, use this DC reading order.

What’s in the DC Events Timeline?

This is our DC Events timeline, which includes recommended reading scattered throughout the entire DC universe, starting before Crisis on Infinite Earths, and going all the way until the most recent Convergence event.

As with our other comic-based timelines, we have omitted the authors and years on the timeline. This is because any trade may have multiple authors, and the dates for the trade’s release do not necessarily reflect the dates of original publication. So to avoid confusion we’ve left out both.

We hope you enjoy this DC events timeline. If you see any major DC publications or events that should be on this list, let us know ASAP and we’ll add it on. We love to hear any and all feedback you have for us. Additionally, if you’re interested in more DC Comics timelines, visit our DC Comics hub!
