The Flash Reading Order

The fastest man alive, the Flash has been one of the more popular DC characters, making his way into multiple corners of pop culture.

What’s on this Flash Reading Order?

The Flash is one of DC’s most important characters, as he is often at the heart of universe-shattering events such as Crisis on Infinite Earths and Flashpoint. He’s a lot more than just a fast superhero. He’s the linchpin between realities.

This timeline attempts to list all of the major Flash stories in chronological order. 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 Flash Reading Order.
