<<<< Earth-1 Batman Quick List Years 1-10 <<<< |||

  1. [1]COLLIN COLSHER: Because everything is still in flux for a couple months following Crisis on the brand spankin’ new Modern Age timeline, this allows for a few more final Silver/Bronze Age stories to close us out neatly on our timeline here. Everything from this point forward occurs after Crisis but is still part of Silver/Bronze Age Earth-1 continuity. (As such, Doug Moench finishes his long mega-arc as the definitive final Silver/Bronze Age Batman tale. Plus, we get the added bonus of the final issue of ‘tec by Harlan Ellison!) DCU Guide lists several other Silver/Bronze Age stories as occurring during this post-Crisis period, including WFC #323, Heroes Against Hunger #1New Teen Titans Vol. 2 #18, Batman and The Outsiders Annual #2, Batman and The Outsiders #28-32, Justice League of America #250-255, and Swamp Thing Vol. 2 #52-55. Scholar Mike Voiles also includes New Teen Titans Vol. 2 #18-31. There’s no indication that WFC #323 and Heroes Against Hunger #1 take place after the Crisis, so I’ve kept them prior to it. Batman and The Outsiders #28-32, JLofA #250-255, and Swamp Thing Vol. 2 #52-55 are definitively post-Crisis, in the sense that they are decidedly new continuity, so they shouldn’t be here. Batman and The Outsiders Annual #2 is tough as it could fit (with only minor caveats) here or in the Modern Age. However, I’ve pushed it into the Modern Age because it directly connects to Batman and The Outsiders #28-32. Scholars seem to be most confused about JLofA #250-255. This run gets placed in the Modern Age, Silver/Bronze Age, paradoxically in both at the same time, or split up between the two. Despite this confusion, there is a heap of evidence that places JLA #250-255 in the Modern Age. New Teen Titans Vol. 2 #18-31 is also a tough run that could go either way, but it seems to build toward ongoing Modern Age narrative, plus it references Crisis #12, so I’ve marked it as Modern. Thus, for Batman, Moench’s Batman/Detective Comics finale arc occurs below. The only other comics that go below are Superman #416-422, Action Comics #577-582, DC Comics Presents #89-97, Legion of Super-Heroes #19-27, Infinity Inc #26-29, Warlord #101-112, Green Lantern Vol. 2 #199-201, Fury of Firestorm #43-47, and Lois Lane #1-2. Since these other issues don’t involve Earth-1 Batman, we won’t worry about them.

    Dear Collin!

    I know this site is solely for the purpose of collecting and organizing Batman’s chronology, but can you please help me out with these Batman Family stories (staring Batgirl and Robin solely), where can they be placed among the other titles? Much appreciated in advance!

    • Hi Pocock, been super busy as of late, but I will get back to you on this!

      • Pocok says:

        Thank you so much in advance, take your time! Hope you are doing okay!

        • The Batman Family issues are pretty straightforward in terms of placement (I think?).

          –#1 Part 1 goes in June, Year 11, just prior to Batman #272-275 (“THE UNDERWORLD OLYMPICS ’76”)
          –#3 Part 1 is on my timeline as a Batman-less note in Year 11
          –#4 Part 1 is an X-mas tale that occurs just prior to #4 Part 2, which is also an X-mas tale, in Year 11
          –#5 Part 1 goes just prior to Batman #276 in Year 12
          –#6 Part 1 goes just prior to Batman #278 in Year 12
          –#9 Part 1 has an editorial note that says it takes place shortly after Batman #279 in Year 12. Specifically, it occurs just after Batman Family #8 in Year 12.
          –#11 Part 1 supposedly occurs “months” after Batman Family #5, so it should likely go somewhere at the very tail end of Year 12, just after Batman Family #10.
          –#11 Part 2 likely goes immediately after Batman Family #11 Part 1, also toward the end of Year 12.
          –#12 should go just prior to Batman Family #13-14 i.e. in February of Year 13.
          –#15 should go just after Batman Family #13-14 i.e. in March of Year 13.
