Using as his starting point Michael L. Fleischer's 1976 reference, The Encyclopedia of Comic Book Heroes: Batman(Macmillan, Vol. 1), Greenberger (coauthor, The DC Comics Encyclopedia) here brings this fundamental guide into the 21st century, documenting characters both recently developed and still evolving. Organized alphabetically by character or site name, the entries run several paragraphs in length. Greenberger omits characters having only casual interaction with Batman; narrative intersections must occur at least twice to warrant a character's inclusion. The book is graphically rich; its stunning illustrations are by nearly 200 artists who have worked on Batman comics over the decades. Recommended for all graphic novel and pop-culture collections.
