Trinity War Reading Order

When Trinity War was being unrelieved it was described as a self-contained New 52 Justice League centred event – however, it soon became clear it was a lead up for Forever Evil (Forever Evil reading order here). It intoduces the mystery of Pandora and the introduction of the Crime Syndicate from Earth-3 – the main antagonists of Forever Evil.

Trinity War refers to the three Justice Leagues – Justice League, Justice League of America and Justice League Dark.

The series is short and both reading orders are easy to follow and flow nicely. Let’s get to it.
