DC Events

Welcome to our list of DC Event Reading Orders.  These reading orders include all core issues and tie-ins for each event.  Sometimes these reading orders will also contain prologue or epilogue issues that,  while not part of the official event,  will give you a better reading experience.

If you want to view the events in chronological order go to the DC Event Timeline.

Many events relating specifically with certain characters are under the letter that Character name begins with. For example Batman specific events are under the letter B, Superman events under S, etc.
