With thousands of comics to read on DC Universe Infinite, and more and more coming each week, there’s never been a better time to read DC comics. That makes it the perfect time to launch something we’re super excited about-the Official DC Reading Recommendation Lists!
We’re looking to build the absolute best, most authoritative, final word lists of reading recommendations for DC characters. And who better to build these lists than the most passionate and knowledgeable DC fans in the Multiverse than you!
Of course, we can’t talk about fantastic reading recommendations without mentioning the Essential Reading Lists @Nathan.Payson, @AlexanderKnox, and @TurokSonOfStone1950 put together. Be sure to check them out if you want to see more reading recommendations and reference lists!
This year, we’re celebrating the 80th anniversary of Wonder Woman, AKA Diana Prince. She’s had many, many great stories and adventures in those decades. Which do you think are the best and most essential of those stories, and why? Are they great origin stories, classic stories, modern stories?
Let us know in the comments below, and we’ll add them to our master list!
These stories establish the classic concepts we celebrate today. We are introduced to Steve Trevor, as well as her trademark abilities like super strength, speed & agility, and deflecting bullets with her bracelets.
Timeless classics and notable appearances that any new reader of Wonder Woman will enjoy, regardless of where it lands in the timeline.

After the Anti-Monitor’s rampage in Crisis on Infinite Earths resulted in the destruction of most of the Multiverse, the five remaining parallel Earths were merged into one, creating one unified timeline. This period explored Diana’s role as an emissary and ambassador from Themyscira, as well as developing her ties to Greek deities and mythology and her birth from clay.
Current Stories (Post-Flashpoint)
After Barry Allen’s attempt to travel back in time to save his mother had catastrophic effects, the timeline of the DC Universe was reset once more, with Diana now being a demi-goddess and the daughter of Zeus himself.
