DCU Links

These are sites for which I hold tremendous admiration.
Most are time-tested, high quality, archival sites... or just plain fun.
I'll be frank, it takes a lot of clout to stay on my links list!

JLA Links  •  JSA Links  •  Legion Links

Of Exceptional Worth

All of the following sites are still maintained.

» All Timelines!
For those who want to learn more about a storytelling franchise in chronological order. Find many timelines that you can sort by author, year, title, etc. Helps you figure out reading order too!

» Comic Book Resources
My favorite comics news site for news, articles, boards, etc.

» The Comics Bulletin. News, reviews and columns.

» Comics Continuum
One of the best comics news sources. Updated daily!

» DarkMark's Comics Indexing Domain!
A great barebones list in the style of the official 1980s' Index series.

DC has a great site with active message boards, news & previews, mini-sites and more!

» Flash: Those Who Ride the Lightning

» Grand Comics Database
An exciting resource! It is slowly being built into the biggest database about comics in existence. Sort of like comics equivalent of the Internet Movie Database.

» The Idol-Head of Diabolu! A blog for the Martian Manhunter.

» Microheroes!
I partner with a lot of micro-makers to provide the tidy little character images you see throughout my site: form:
Jerome  •  Rat's Nest  •  Jorge Martinez  •  Golden Agers and the Elph's Microverse
And don't forget: Legotures  •  The DC Smilies

» Mike's Amazing World of DC Comics!
As insanely large as my site! Wonderfully fleshed out DC info, especially for Silver Age characters. There's a good subsection, too: the DC Comics List, which is a listing of all comics ever published by DC.
(Mike Voiles; http://www.dcindexes.com)

» Mile High Comics
This site is good for more than buying comics. It also features comics news and the largest database of cover scans.

My second favorite comics news site. Always bursting with interviews and news (without the annoying popups).

» Superman Homepage (Steven Younis)
Absolutely essential Superman. It also has a good episode guide for Hanna Barbera's Super Friends

» Titans Tower (n8twing@aol.com)
I can't say enough about this site. My absolute favorite fan site. Beautiful, complete, fun.

» Unauthorized Chronology of the DC Universe (Chris J. Miller)
An amazingly comprehensive chronology of DCU history, from the beginning of time to the end of the universe. All canonical and annotated. Also contains DCU birthdays!

» Unofficial Guide to the DC Universe
This site has set the unenviable goal of encompassing all DC characters! Also houses the Hawkworld site.

The Free Online Encyclopedia!
