DC Vs. Vampires Reading Order, a DC Vampire Apocalypse by James Tynion IV and Matthew Rosenberg

  • by

After the zombie apocalypse in DCeased, DC Comics explores another alternate universe where undead creatures have infected the world. This time, the vampires are the ones responsible for the Apocalypse in DC Vs. Vampires!

Written by James Tynion IV and Matthew Rosenberg, with artwork by Otto Schmidt, Simone Di Meo, Daniele Di Nicuolo and Francesco Mortarino, DC Vs. Vampires depicts the epic fight placing the heroes of the DC Universe against the undead for the very survival of the human race!

To be more precise, as DC’s synopsis informs us: The Justice League has long protected Earth from all manner of foreign and alien invaders over the years, always keeping a vigilant eye to the skies for the next threat. But what if the threat was already walking the Earth…hiding in plain sight…watching…waiting for their moment to strike…

A mysterious new vampire lord has already put a plan in motion to conquer the Earth, and his horde are hunting on the streets of Gotham. Can Batman save his city—or will he succumb to the undead plague?

DC Vs. Vampires Reading Order

DC Vs. Vampires consist of a 12-issues maxi-series divided into two halves. Following the conclusion of the first part, the universe was expanded with two one-shot tie-ins and a six-issue monochromatic companion series named All-Out War. Taking place concurrently with the events happening in DC Vs. Vampires, it follows a team assembled by John Constantine for a specific mission.

DC Vs. Vampires Reading Order: Issue by Issue

At first, DC vs. Vampires was straightforward with only one series. But two one-shot and one spin-off series were added, and things became more complicated around issue #7 of the main series. Though All-Out War can be read independently, there are some elements that are referenced in DC Vs. Vampires and Constantine are present in both of them (adding a bit of confusion about the timeline on occasion).
