Green Lantern Reading Order

In brightest day, in darkest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Read all the Green Lantern Corp stories in chronological order.

What’s on this Green Lantern Reading Order?

Green Lantern has been around since nearly the beginning, though the design has changed multiple times. Now the Green Lantern Corp is an essential part of the cosmic DC universe.

This timeline attempts to assemble all of the major Green Lantern stories (from multiple GL characters) in one cohesive timeline. While it might not contain every single story with the character, it does look at the primary comics.

Where to Start?

You can start anywhere you like on this timeline. You can start with the classic stuff, or move on to the more recent comics. When you see the Volumes begin to start over with number 1, that’s often a good place to start.

As always, if you like this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, including our massive collection of DC timelines 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 Green Lantern Reading Order.
