This reading order is also available in a full graphical format.

Here's my go at the titles that lead up and include the Trinity War.

I've tried to capture all the New 52 events that lead up to the war, which means there are a load of optional titles. I've purposely missed out all of the Pandora sightings in the New 52 first issues!

If you are a bit tight for money, I'd just stick to the official Trinity War Parts 1 to 6, but if you are a completist like me then I hope this order helps you out.

This reading order directly leads into the Forever Evil Crossover.
