Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This revised, updated, expanded, 400-page DC Comics Encyclopedia sharpens the image of more than one thousand DC Comics characters from their first appearance to the present. The ultimate one-volume reference to the sometimes dizzying complexities of the DC Comics universe. A trove of information at the right price.

Library Journal

A well-timed expansion of the 2004 edition, this singular, visually extraordinary hero-villain field guide provides definitive order to the pandemonium of character names and histories. Beatty (JLA), Robert Greenburger (Essential Batman Encyclopedia), Phil Jiminez (Wonder Woman), and Daniel Wallace (Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia) meticulously profile 1000 DC heroes and villains created since DC's 1935 founding. The entries are organized alphabetically, by character name, while introductory insets consistently detail first appearance, hero/villain status, physical statistics, and special powers. A genuinely essential DC character reference; highly recommended for pop culture, graphic novel, and even public library collections.

    Mega Cool!! =)

    This book is so wicked- I started to read it at the store, but I couldn't finsh it! It's a good thing that they expanded the book- the original was good, but they didn't have everything in there. I LOVE this book!
