Book Description

13 Oct 2011
Batman is a cultural, super-hero icon. First introduced in 1939, the alter ego of Bruce Wayne has been known through countless DC comics, a TV series, and mega hit movies. The Batman Files is Bruce Wayne's secret book that consists of journal entries from Batman's war on crime, in-depth villain dossiers and other bat-computer files, faux news articles describing major events in Batman's life, and hundreds of illustrations taken from the comics. The book will also include blueprints and schematics of Batman's costumes, vehicles, and weapons, and the Batcave, and a variety of sketches made to look like they were penned by the Caped Crusader himself, including a child's drawing of the horrible bat Bruce saw down in the cave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great beyond greatness 26 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I opened this book two days ago, at last after buying it some weeks ago, and it's stunning. The deluxe presentation, the contents, everything you wanted to know about Bats, it's here. Reproduced in b&w and in colour illustrations, extracted from sketches, comic panels, etc.

Greatly recomenned for Batman, DC Comics and comic-book fans in general. It's that great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must for any Batman fan 17 Aug 2012
By pp599
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great product for any Batman fan. It has been made with exquisite attention to detail and of a very high standard. A friend of mine in the publishing industry has said they have produced this to a very high standard and my fear that the pages would come off the spine are complete way off the mark.
I've only read 10-15% of it so far as I'm taking it in a small bit at a time. There won't be much new content for me but am enjoying it nonetheless!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any Batman fan! 24 Mar 2013
By Fran
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book contains a lot of information about the Batman Universe. It's written as if it were a file of journal entries written and collected by Bruce Wayne. It gives very detailed information about different villains, vehicles and gadgets etc. There is also some fantastic art in there taken from the comics. This is definitely a 'coffee table' book because of its size and weight.

I give it a 5/5 because it's something you can either sit and read all the way through, admiring the art, or you can just open it at any page and learn about something you might not have known.

While I say that it's a must have for any Batman fan, it's also great for someone who knows a lot less about Batman as it shows Bruce Wayne's development into Batman and gives a lot of background information that many people might not know.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
WOW, I read the other reviews, checked images on google and searched inside the book on the Amazon product page, I knew it would be good but I didn't know it would be this great!!! Wonderful quality print, nice thickness and weight to the pages. I know it is quite an expensive book but it really is worth the money especially if you're a bat fan!

A must have for anyone who appreciated batman or comics in general. I have wanted this for a long time, but couldnt bring myself to spend the money, grabbed it on offer and am so pleased! The book is huge, well designed and very entertaining. The graphics are very detailed. Nothing cheap about this book at all.
