DC’s Bronze Age Reading Order

dc bronze reading order banner art

The Bronze Age is where authors and artists really began to dig deeper into these characters, giving us some of the most classic stories we have.

What’s on DC’s Bronze Age reading order?

This timeline assembles most of the stories that are from the Bronze age of DC Comics’ history. This was an age of experimentation where team-ups became super popular, and DC began to branch out into some darker areas of thought. While it’s hard to assemble a perfect timeline of this era, we’ve done our best, and we hope you like what you see.

Where to start?

The Green Lantern/Green Arrow story is wonderful and a great place to start. Otherwise we suggest picking and choosing the comics you read from this timeline. Some of them can be a bit hard to get through, though still fun for historical purposes.

As always, if you like this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, including our massive collection of DC timeline in our DC Comics Hub. And if you see something that needs to be added or changed, be sure to let us know over on our contact page. We love to hear all your feedback! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this DC’s Bronze Age reading order.
