I purchased this book for my sons birthday. It has been a big hit. Both my kids are reading it daily. Tons of full color pictures. More details about batmans history, alternate story lines, vehicles, enemies, and sidekicks than I knew there ever were.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to the world of Batman May 19 2014
By Canadianladybug TOP 50 REVIEWER
Get to know everything you wanted to know about Batman. This book will give your child a new perspective of the man behind the mask, the villains he fights regularly as well as the tools he uses. The book will also highlights the key issues of the comics and present the allies of the Dark Knight. Your child will be able to go back in time and witness the changes in the batmobile, the costumes, the origins of the Batman, as well as learn some of the wit and wisdom of the Batman.

The book contains numerous drawings, detailed information on some of the characters, and a detailed timeline on the well-known character from the DC universe. The book is up-to-date with current comic books as it will bring you up to speed with the New 52 series at DC. It is a great book to introduce your kids to the Batman and his world.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like this a little more than some of the other fan books. July 13 2012
By Brian48 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Obviously, this is not a graphic novel so anyone looking for a deep read, this is probably not the book for you. It's essentially a high level overview of Bats through the years since he's been in publication. A brief write-up of all the various Ages from Golden Age to the present. I've found that books like this are generally boring for all save the most serious Batman fan, but this one does do something I don't think I've seen before.

Many "historical" books like this will mention either key moments or key books published throughout the years, but this one included a full story synopsis of each book referenced. I thought this was very helpful as it gives me an idea as to why the book is worth mentioning (without having to search out that back issue to see what this is all about).

All in all, I think I would still only recommend this to only the most rabid Batman fan, but casual fans may find it entertaining as well.

This is a beautiful book. The pictures and the layout of the pages are fantastic.

The people behind these recent encyclopedias by DK should be proud!

Covers every aspect Batman's mythology all the way to the New 52.

I wasn't sure what to get my 28 year old nephew who loves DC & Marvel comics and books. I took a chance on this and he had never seen it before. He absolutely loved it and couldn't put it down after he opened this present. Great choice for the batman collector!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Batman Book Ever! Aug. 16 2012
By jmcal1213 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My 8-year-old son chose this book for himself with an Amazon gift card he got for his birthday. He waited eagerly for its arrival, and since then he has barely put it down. He loves it and reads and re-reads it every single day. The full-color graphics are stunning, and it packs loads of in-depth Batman info per page. This Batman encyclopedia will wow fans of all ages. A must for comics lovers!
