Up Down

Ok, taking into account the advice from Daniel and in the CBR thread AND the dates of publication, I’ve sketched up this order (don’t worry about the batman/final crisis thing.

    Where does Arkham Reborn fit in? And I’m pretty sure that you should put Black Casebook before Batman an Son as there is many references to it in Batman and Son.

    this list was actually an early first draft. For where we’re at now, check out this link:

    I’m not sure about the placement of Arkham Reborn though, I’m going to have to keep tweaking the dc books after we get the marvel list up. Let me know if you have any advice after looking at the newer list!
