  1. Stephen says:

    I know Batman didn’t appear, but I’ve been trying to figure out when Harley Quinn #2 took place.

    Any thoughts?

  2. Cristian says:

    Hello

    Incredible work here.
    Do you know of any list that follows yours but has the comics in trade?

    Thanks.

  3. Dan Ciborowski says:

    Great thanks for your site. My batman collection has now been undergone a complete reorganization.

    I noticed though a couple holes, some random Red Robins, and the outsiders after R.I.P. Did you leave this off because they did not feature batman? I haven’t dug deep into your site yet, but is there a way to contribute to add these missing pieces?

    Also, I curious what you are refrencing at the end with “–Damian resurrected (r in Convergence: Batman and Robin #1)”, I was looking for a flashback or something, but I didn’t see anything. But this was a really neat add to the timeline, woulnd’t have thought of it without you.

    • Gah! I had a longer reply but accidentally deleted it. So here’s a quick version. I only include Batman appearances on my timeline. If there isn’t a Batman, it doesn’t appear on my list. If you notice any omissions just let me know, but I’d be surprised if you found any.

      The premise of the Convergence series was to pick up from where the Modern Age ended. Thus, anything shown that seemed to contradict what was going on just prior to Flashpoint was a retcon. Notably, the erasure of the death of Atom Ryan Choi was one of the bigger (and welcome) retcons. Similarly, Damian’s very appearance—alive and well—in Convergence: Batman & Robin functions as the reference for his resurrection. (Had the Modern Age continued, Damian would have come back anyway, but this confirms it.)

      Hope that makes sense and thank YOU for your patronage! Best wishes and take care.
