DC Timeline - (The Bat-Family & friends) Part 1


There will be spoilers justifing some of the book placements.

I do not really care about what happens outside of Gotham... so I am not going to include all stuff like The Green Lantern or Aquaman in here.. (Wonder Woman and Superman caught my eye recently, so she will make appaerences... I need to rethink what I want to read with Superman...)

In order to do this list I use the following sources:

  • http://therealbatmanchronoproject.blogspot.com
  • http://www.therealbatmanchronologyproject.com
  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Batman_comics
  • http://andrewcutterinc.weebly.com/index.html
  • http://www.thedcu.net/continuity/continuity1.html
  • http://multiversitycomics.com/columns/a-crisis-of-chronology-grant-morrisons-batman-epic/ (Morrisons run)

And sorry for disregarding the offical year numbering... but I feel that if one reads YEAR ONE... and then MONSTER MAN... it reads more like a sequel and not an interquel. And that is why my Batman years will not be the official onces... I will update upon reading the books.... so stay tuned...

This is of course a WIP...

Summary (spoilers):

The first part of the timeline covers the origin events of the Gothamites, starting with Batman and Catwoman and expanding through time to three consecutive Robins, two Batgirls, Oracle, Huntress, the informal formation of the Birds of Prey and Nightwing (and even a muddy origin for the JL).

Amongst those trials are deadly viruses, one whole asylum of nut cases, numerous crime bosses an estranged ward, the other one killed violently, a broken back, Gotham City in ruins and a dear friends family devoured by the Joker himself.

Bruce and Gotham go through trials and tribulations, but as the Bat grows stronger the city might not be able to cope with these disasters…

I have exchanged many out of print editions with new ones.

This list continues in the second one, which is still a heavy work in progress: List 2
