Okay, but I have one problem: I learned that in crossover Zero Hour it's revelade that Joe Chill isn't a killer of Bruce Wayne parents. It also means, that Batman: Year Two and Batman: Full Circle aren't part of continuity. They're elseworlds.

I know, that Reaper appeared only in Y2 and Full Circle. But I don't understand why everyone put that stories in continuity... maybe you all have fondness to Todd McFarlane and Mike W. Barr cool

Sorry for sarcasm

I think Y2 and Full Circle can be in continuity if the reader wants, and thus not a true elseworlds. I, on the other hand, think they are terrible stories and I'd like to ignore them all together.

No - it doesn't make those elseworlds. To me, it shows Batman as being more human, and capable of making mistakes. I take it as the Chill thing being a mistake - Batman believed him to be his parents' killer (and Chill played along with it), but found out later he was wrong.
Chill never admitted to killing the Waynes, and he was dead before Batman could fully confront him about it.

I just want to take this time to state that I think that people are getting a little too crazy with catagorizing things as elseworlds or not elseworlds. Just because something does not fit very neatly into the mainstream continuity, does not mean it is the radical departure that is elseworlds.

Batman's, along with all major comic characters, continuity is inherently messy. Very few things fit well together between the seperate creators. So contradictions are something to be anticipated and I think they should be accepted.

I think we all make our own continities, as readers we pick an choose what stories we accept and what ones we leave out of our personal canons. For me, Year Two is a terrible story. It is not part of my personal view of Batman. I like to think it never happened. But that doesn't make it "elseworlds." Elseworlds is when Batman is a Egyptian king, not when he teams up with his parent's killer.

I think snipe is doing a very good job with the continuity section, fitting in all the things that should be considered at least nominees for the mainstream story of Batman.

My point: stop calling everything that's a little wierd and elseworlds story.

Snipe, will you be including "Turing Points" and their respective 5 parts into the continuity?

Absolutely. And that's a really great storyline, too. For those of you who've not read it, it's five issues - each dealing with a different time / era, all dealing with the relationship between Gordon and Batman. Greg Rucka (who's always great) wrote a couple of the issues.
I read recently that it's going to get a trade paperback release this year.
Another item similar to this is the 10 issue Superman / Batman: World's Finest miniseries. Each issue deals with a Superman / Batman meeting, each in a different year (much like the recent 0 issue of Justice League of America).
Both of these items are really great for continuity, since they are able to define specific moments within a broader timeframe.

Yup, Turning Points will be a graphic novel (June 6):

Itíll be a bit tricky just putting the one novel into the continuity. You may have to break each part into its respective timeline.

great job on the batman continuity stuff! i'm attempting a highly intensive batman chronology/time-line at this blogger site--> http://therealbatmanchronoproject.blogspot.com/2009/09/year-one-era-continued-fourth-year.html

Of course, everyone's chronology is quite different... but check it out! -cc
