Joker Reading Order

The clown prince of crime, and easily Batman’s most terrifying foe, the Joker is one of the few villains that definitely deserves his own timeline.

What’s on this Joker Reading Order?

The Joker has long been one of DC’s greatest villains. He’s the perfect foil to a slightly unstable Batman, the perfect temptation for Batman to lose control.

This timeline attemps to place all of the major Joker stories in one cohesive timeline. While it might not contain every single story with the character, it does look at the primary comics.

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 Joker Reading Order.
