The Arrowverse is no stranger to crossovers. Whether it be the smaller ones with Arrow and The Flash in the early days or mega-events like the five-part Crisis on Infinite Earths, connectivity is in its DNA. Until now, Arrowverse crossovers have been exclusive to TV but are now making their way to comics with Earth-Prime.
This canonical comic book event will see the likes of The Flash, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, and more come together to take on a threat that spans across time and universes. A threat soo big that it could end the Age of Heroes.
For extra authenticity, Earth-Prime is written by people involved in the shows. While it mostly involves members of the writing room, you’ll also find a few cast members and even showrunners thrown into the mix. To top it all off, each issue will be drawn by seasoned artists, some of who would be considered legends in their own right.
So you don’t miss out on any of your favourite heroes, How To Love Comics has put together this Earth-Prime reading order. It has all the details you need, including how to read this crossover, release dates, and heaps more.
How to read Earth-Prime
This Arrowverse comic book story works differently from most comic book events. Issues #1-5 will focus on a particular hero or group with a double-sized self-contained story. However, each issue will have some connective tissue, building up to the finale in Earth-Prime #6. This final issue will see all the heroes come together to take on the event’s big boss and, hopefully, save the day.
