Notes:
Concept by Dan Jurgens.

The Tangent imprint introduced in 1997 features new characters using established DC character names.

The Tangent Universe exists apart from the mainstream DC Universe. In this world, the presence of super powered characters greatly influences the direction of technology, economies and political landscapes. The mainstream DCU, on the other hand, is much closer to the real world, despite the presence of superfolk.

DC published two runs of one shot titles in 1997 & 1998, and followed it up with the maxi series Tangent: Superman's Reign (2008) a decade later. The difference between the 1997 and 1998 titles is fairly easy to distinguish. The 1997 series features a WHITE background; the 1998 series features a SILVER/GRAY background.

The 1997 series features the following titles:

  • The Atom
  • Metal Men
  • Green Lantern
  • Flash
  • Sea Devils
  • Joker
  • Nightwing
  • Secret Six
  • Doom Patrol

This listing of titles is based on the checklist at the end of each issue, unlike the listing for the Tangent 1998 series which uses the line of glyphs at the bottom of the cover. (As with the 1998 series, each issue of this series also has a glyph representing the character/title and, at the bottom of each of the issues, the glyphs are arranged in a horizontal line. However, as the checklist is consistent in each issue of this series, the checklist is used instead of the code.) Since all the titles were released during the same month and the books were designed to be read on their own, there isn't an official sequence of how to list the books.

The 1998 series features the following titles:

  • The Batman
  • JLA
  • The Joker's Wild
  • Nightwing: NightForce
  • Powergirl
  • The Superman
  • Trials of the Flash
  • Tales of the Green Lantern
  • Wonder Woman

This listing of titles is based on the "code" at the bottom of each issue. Each issue had a glyph representing the character/title and, at the bottom of each of the issues, the glyphs were arranged in a horizontal line. (Unlike the 1997 series which is listed by the checklist at the back of each issue, this series' checklist--found on the first page of each issue--is not consistent. The issue's featured character is the final listing in each list. For example, the Batman is the last entry in his book with Wonder Woman as the first and JLA as the second; in the Wonder Woman book, she is the last entry while the Batman is first and JLA is second; in the JLA book, the group is the last entry with the Batman as first and Wonder Woman as the second.) Since all the titles were released during the same month and the books were designed to be read on their own, there isn't an official sequence of how to list the books.
