DC Elseworlds Listed by Feature

This page lists the Elseworlds books published by DC Comics. This is how DC describes the theme: "In Elseworlds, heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places -- some that have existed, and some that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow."

The Elseworlds books are identified by a distinctive logo. My goal is to list all of the publications with that logo. This list does include a few books that do not have the logo -- the first title, Gotham by Gaslight, is generally considered by fandom to have been an Elseworlds publication based on its subject matter and format, despite having been published nearly two years before the first actual Elseworlds book (and its inclusion in the Batman: Gotham by Gaslight collection confirms that consideration). My reasons for the other exceptions should be clear from the listings.

The books are grouped by the primary character in the story and then listed alphabetically. Books featuring more than one primary character are listed under each of them (except for the books featuring a team).

A list of these same books arranged by publication date is here.
