List of Earths in Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium

The Compendium lists some 114 Earths. Because it would take up too much space on the main page I am listing them here. The Earths in quotes are names provided by John Wells and those with an asterisk are Earths on which "Imaginary Tales" happened. Naming convention is "Pre-Crisis/Hypertime: Earth, Dash, Number written out (at least up until Fifty-One)" Earths where the wiki deviates from what is said in the Compendium are noted (some for all practical purposes are the same Earth)

This is to serve as a way point to help figure out what Earth something happened on--BruceGrubb (talk) 22:25, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

Earth-1289 is really the universe of the Batman newspaper comic strip of 1989-1991. Comics Review reprinted the entire run, so it's the best way to read the strip now (better than collecting several years worth of newspapers). Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:35, October 11, 2016 (UTC)
Good detail. The comicvine site give you some more details. I should mention there is also a Comics Revue Presents which is a similar series some 27 years later.--BruceGrubb (talk) 14:50, October 14, 2016 (UTC)
If we're talking newspaper comics, the intro to Wonder Woman: The Daily Comics 1944-1945 also mentions an (unofficial) Earth-N - for Newspapers. --Tupka217 14:02, November 5, 2016 (UTC)

The Compendium lists Batman: The Dailies and Batman: The Sunday Classics as appearances of Earth-Forty so using something like Earth-N without anything resembling an official reference amounts to walking into a mine field of headache.--BruceGrubb (talk) 00:42, November 19, 2016 (UTC)

On a side note I found an upload of the Daily Planet letter promotional page. If you change the (number)pdf.pdf you can read other letter pages. Handy for finding minor details about DC characters 1976–1981.--BruceGrubb (talk) 18:13, January 6, 2017 (UTC)

Pre-Crisis Alternate Earths not given a name in The Compendium (or Wonder Woman Encyclopedia, or anywhere else)

I figure these should be listed somewhere. A few are already mentioned on the page in a note, but let's keep a complete list here. Everyone, feel free to chime in with more:

Shadzane 💀 (talk) 21:21, November 9, 2017 (UTC)

All-Star Squadron #50 is a distortion of events in All-Star Comics #13 where the other planets of the "Earth-Two" reality had life. I agree it is kind of a mess.
I should mention that there are two editions of the Essential Wonder Woman Encyclopedia: the 2010 edition we reference and a 2015 edition. The 2015 edition has more pages (528 pages vs the 496 pages of the 2010 edition) but so far know one has gotten a copy to see what (if anything) changed regarding the Wonder Women of the multiverse.--BruceGrubb (talk) 15:35, November 17, 2017 (UTC)
Here's some more (NOTE: these all may be previously-seen universes):
Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:21, September 7, 2018 (UTC)
And two more:
Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:55, September 7, 2018 (UTC)
Four more, all from Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew #15. They are all seen for only one panel. None can be called Earth-Fifteen, because that number's already taken:
  • A funny-animal world populated by ducks and mice, resembling the Disney comics universe.
  • A world resembling the Krazy Kat comic strip (but no residents are seen).
  • A world resembling the Pogo comc strip (but only one resident is seen in the far distance).
  • a world where giant "primitive" cats try to catch and eat mice, like in Tom and Jerry cartoons. When the Zoo Crew and JLA visit there, they are the same size as the mice. This world does not resemble its inspiration as closely as the other three do.
Shadzane 💀 (talk) 18:38, January 29, 2019 (UTC)
One more -- "Topsy-Turvey Land" from Limited Collectors' Edition #C-50, where Santa takes toys from children every Christmas. It may be the same dimension as Earth-148, but we can't just assume that.... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 05:24, March 18, 2019 (UTC)
