An imprint of DC Comics, Vertigo has been the home for more adult content in comic form. Though many characters have weaved themselves in and out of DC continuity.
What’s on the Vertigo Comics Reading Order?
Over the years, DC Comics has needed a home for some of its more adult or more mature content. Hence the imprint Vertigo was born. Some of that content is its own shared universe. However, much of it weaves in and out of the Main Continuity. You’ll recognize some characters like Constantine and the Swamp Thing as being part of the main continuity (most of the time), but are included here as well. However, this timeline includes some Vertigo comics not include on the main continuity timeline. We hope you enjoy!
Where to Start?
It’s hard to say where to start on this timeline. You can begin with the very early stuff, but we’d recommend beginning with the early Hellblazer comics. The Neil Gaiman Sandman comics, or Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing are also essential bits to start with.
As always, if you like this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, including our massive collection of DC timeline 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 Vertigo Comics Reading Order.
