Supergirl Reading Order

Supergirl is perhaps the most important member of the Superfamily, next to Superman himself. In fact, she’s even more powerful than Superman in several ways…

What’s on this Supergirl Reading Order?

Supergirl, aka Kara Danvers, is Superman’s cousin. She was sent to Earth to keep an eye on Superman, but in most versions of the story she ended up arriving later, after Superman had already grown up. Having not grown up on Earth, Kara possessed Kryptonian powers that made her more powerful than her cousin.

This timeline attempts to tell all of the major stories that involve Supergirl. 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 Supergirl Reading Order.
