Batwoman Reading Order banner art

Batwoman is a relatively recent addition to the Bat family, but she has quickly become iconic in her role, resulting eventually in a show in the Arrowverse and so much more!

What’s on this Batmwoman Reading Order?

This timeline assembles all of the major stories that feature Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, and places them in chronological order. While it might not include every story that we see this character, this timeline does its best to get the important ones, including her first appearance in 52.

Batwoman is a first for a lot of reasons. She’s the first Bat family character (besides Bruce Wayne himself) to get her own television show, and she’s also notable as a prominent LGBTQ+ character in the DC Comics universe. She’s an inspiration to a lot of people.

Where to Start?

You can start anywhere you like on this timeline. You can start with the classic stuff, or move on to the more recent comics. When you see the Volumes begin to start over with number 1, that’s often a good place to start.

As always, if you like this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, including our massive collection of DC timelines in our DC Comics Hub. And if you see something that needs to be added or changed, be sure to let us know over on our contact page. We love to hear all your feedback! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this Batwoman Reading Order.
