One of Grant Morrison’s masterstrokes, and one of the most fun crossovers DC’s ever done. Grant had a hand in pretty much every issue that tied into the main story, even if he wasn’t the main writer. The trade paperback that DC released a while ago is seriously the worst, and only barely gets the gist of the story across. This is DC One Million, done right.
DC One Million: The Core Story
Chronos 1,000,000 (prelude) (and sets up the time gauntlet pay-off at the very end)

DC One Million 4
Whew! That wimpy trade paperback DC put looks pretty lame right now, doesn’t it? The rest of the DC1M issues are completely standalone and could be (if so desired) bound separately in any order (actually, I take that back: the Legion & Legionnaires issues might tie together, but someone else will have to confirm that):
Legion of Super-Heroes
Young Heroes in Love
There is also a DC One Million 80-Page Giant that you do a few things with:
-Take the Grant Morrison pages out and add them to the end of the main book, or if you don’t mind a thicker book, use the whole thing.
-If you bind the standalone issues in their own volume, put it at the beginning.
Chris Roberson revisited the 1M timeline in Superman/Batman #79-80, and would be a great addition as well.
I just bound the core story, but there are definitely options for those who want everything.
