Overview

Following the success of the first edition, the updated and revised DC Comics Encyclopedia offers even more incredible DC detail and imagery than the original. 48 brand-new pages include major updates on characters and storylines (including the recent "Infinite Crisis" story arc). This spectacular, up-to-the-minute encyclopedia will delight comic fans of every age.

Editorial Reviews

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.

From the Publisher
"For the serious DC Comics fanboy whose collection includes all the greats…The DC Comics Encyclopedia is a must." —The Washington Post

"…lovingly documented with gorgeous drawings and enough blow-by-blow detail to satisfy completists." — The Dallas Morning News

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.

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!

I got the Marvel Encyclopedia from B&N and thought, "you know i should get the DC one to have both sides," so that's what i did. I love the Marvel and Dc universes and comic books, so its great to have these reference guides to look up characters that i am not to familiar with.
