EIGHT REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD PICK UP BATMAN THE ULTIMATE GUIDE NEW EDITION

Batman The Ultimate Guide New EditionTo coincide with the release of the latest Batman film, DK Books are proud to present their up-to-date guide that explores the mysterious world of the Dark Knight. Entitled, 'Batman The Ultimate Guide New Edition', this 216-page fully-illustrated hardback book has been released in the UK on the 3rd of February, 2022, and is a must-read for any fans of the Caped Crusader. Here are some of the reasons why...





1) It's About Batman: Well, let's face it, apart from the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face, Mr. Freeze, and a number of other villains from his rogues' gallery, who doesn't love Bruce Wayne's alter ego, Batman? After all, he's strong, smart, and so charismatic that he's appeared in countless cartoons, films, TV shows, and of course, comic books, which he still does to this very day.


Gotham City


2) It's Cheap: No, I don't mean this in a bad way, because with all due respect, I'd say this book manages to give you more bang for your buck, so to speak, as it's full of relevant information and amazing images.


Year One


3) It's Full of Fun Facts: Now, this point brings me quite nicely onto some of the information featured inside this book! Well, did you know that Batman was an instant sensation and helped to usher in the age of comic book superheroes? Or the fact, that in his first appearance he inadvertently killed a man? If not, then you know what you have to do! Pick up this book today.

4) It's Written by Someone Who Knows About Batman and the DC Universe: Matthew K. Manning is an author from Asheville, North Carolina, who lives with his wife, Dorothy, and their two daughters, Lilly and Gwen. Over the years, he has written a number of guides for DK Books, such as, 'Batman: A Visual History', 'DC Comics: A Visual History', 'DC Comics: Year by Year', and 'The DC Comics Encyclopedia New Edition'. He's also written for companies like Marvel, IDW, DC, and Disney, including the mini-series, 'Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures', and the twelve-issue comic book series, 'Marvel Action: Avengers'.


The Batcave


5) It Looks Great: Some people say that taste is subjective and that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But as far as I'm concerned, everything looks great if it comes from Gotham City, especially if it's drawn by people like Jim Lee, George Pérez, Bob Kane, Jorge Jiménez, Greg Capullo, and a long list of their fellow artists who have likewise contributed to this book.


Infinite Frontier


6) It Doesn't Smell: No, I'm not referring to Tom King, who wrote the foreword for this book. But rather, I'm talking about the fresh information this new edition has on offer, ranging from individual sections detailing Batman's involvement with the 'Flashpoint' saga and 'Dark Nights: Death Metal', all the way to his numerous battles in stories like 'Zero Year', 'City of Bane', and 'Joker War'.


The Joker War


7) It's Historical: Batman's adventures have been in print since 1939, which in many ways, makes him a historical figure who's been able to gradually change with the times, both aesthetically and spiritually. So, if you're someone who's interested in both growth and transformation, then this book is most definitely for you.


Silver Age


8) It's Easy to Read: Located at either end of this tabloid-styled reference guide is a two-page contents section and a four-page index, both of which will allow you to navigate this book in order to focus on a specific topic. Topics like Robin, Nightwing, the Justice League, Arkham Asylum, Barbara Gordon, and many, many more.
