For almost three-quarters of a century, the story of a young billionaire and philanthropist, Bruce Wayne, who fights crime as caped vigilante known as Batman, has kept readers fascinated with his adventures. Over the years the character has slowly transformed into a darker, sometimes scarier, symbol of truth and justice. Dorling Kindersley manages to encapsulate the countless transformations of The Batman Family, both on and off the page, into one of their signature style books — tons of visuals, timelines, information and interesting facts laid out over double page spreads. Key issues and comic book art help to keep the book clear, simple and informative. My copy holds a special place on my coffee where a few selective guests can quickly browse through the page awesomeness.
