What’s on the Superman Reading Order?

This timeline contains all of the major comic stories about DC’s popular character, Superman. While this list is not perfectly comprehensive, it includes most of the stories you would ever need to read. It allows you to experience the complete story of Superman. Get through this list, and you’ll be a leading expert on the character. Additionally, this timeline also includes several stories for other Kryptonians like Supergirl, though it is not a Supergirl-centric timeline. But overall, if it’s relevant to the overall story of Superman and his family, you’ll find it here. Some of these stories cross over with mainstream DC events, but those are also important to further Superman’s storyline.

We assembled this list using multiple sources, and you should find most Superman stories here. However, if you see anything that is missing or could add to the list, don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know what we can do to improve the Superman reading order. And if you enjoyed this timeline, don’t forget to visit some of our others, such as the general Batman reading order page. Thank you again for visiting the site and be sure to click around! In the mean time, enjoy this Superman reading order.
