Gothtopia Reading Order DC New 52

What if Gotham was a utopia where everybody is happy and no crimes happen? This is the reality shown in Batman: Gothtopia, a little Batman crossover published in 2014, during the New 52 era.

Here is the official synopsis: Who – or what – created this twisted vision of the Dark Knight’s hometown? As far as anyone knows, Gotham City is and always has been a crime-free utopia, patrolled by the white-clad Batman and his sidekick Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catbird.

What to read before Gothtopia?

Gothtopia is a stand-alone storyline and doesn’t require any pre-reading. You can still pick up Birds of Prey (Volume 3) #27 in which there is a hint something weird is going on in Gotham, but nothing is shown.

The storyline takes place in Detective Comics, and the tie-ins are not comprehensible without it. Batwing and Batgirl explore a little bit this utopian Gotham but don’t add anything to the story.

What to read after Gothtopia?

Gothtopia is the kind of little crossover in the Batfamily existing, we can imagine, in part to make the reader buy a few issues he doesn’t normally read. It doesn’t have any real impact and does not lead to any storylines.

For a more detailed guide to this era, take a look at our Batman: The New 52 Reading Order which covers all of Batman’s adventures during the Post-Crisis era.
