Elseworlds
Elseworlds
Recommended Reading Order

Yes, not every book on this list was published with the Elseworlds logo, and plenty of them pop up again somewhere in continuity, but this is a handy list of all books that were not considered part of the universe’s continuity when they were published. They might have their own separate universe, like DC Animated, or interact again later, but these are the books where characters might be a bit different than we’re used to in the mainstream DCU.
