Reading Order

Updated January 2016



Overall reading order | She-Ra's story |
Where does DCU crossover fit? | Trade Paperback reading order |



For those who have not read any He-Man issue from DC Comics, here is a list for one possible reading order.

The series started in 2012 and right now, there are 6 main bodies of work.
  • Digital Issues (8 issues)
  • 2012 Mini-Series (6 issues)
  • One-shot Origins (3 issues)
  • Ongoing Series (19 issues)
  • Crossover with DCU (6 issues)
  • New Maxi-Series/Ongoing "He-Man: The Eternity War" (13 issues so far and story will conclude with #15 on February 2016)

From those, it's easy to follow the story as the actual release order hasn't jumped around too much of adding new stories and filling some gaps.
