Kevin Smith has made a name for himself in Hollywood as one of the more irreverent, yet somehow brilliant, directors and writers. But did you know that most of his work is connected? This is the View Askewniverse timeline.
What’s on the View Askewniverse timeline?
The View Askewniverse is a collection of films and tie-in media. Kevin Smith is the primary author of these stories. Most of this media exists in the same universe. However, some of Kevin Smith’s characters make cameo appearances in other media that might be non-canon. Scream 3 is one example. That said, the majority of the media on this timeline is canon and exists in the same universe.
If you like this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, including our Alien/Predator timeline. Additionally, if you see anything on this timeline that is wrong, feel free to let us know on our contact page. We love to hear all of your feedback.
Where to Start?
The first Clerks film is probably the best place to start. Then we recommend going through the films and viewing the tie-in comics and television later. That said, this is one universe where the chronological order could be a lot of fun. Thankfully, there isn’t an overwhelming amount of media in this universe. The films make up the backbone of the View Askewniverse. We hope you enjoy! Thank you for visiting!
