Easily readable text adds to the excitement as we uncover the man behind the mask. My young son loved hearing the bit and pieces he didn’t know about one of his favorite heroes. He was especially intrigued by the evolution of Robin, Batman’s sidekick, which is also included.
The roughly sketched illustrations are oddly fascinating mixed with detailed schematics of things like the Wayne Foundation, and will make even the newest Batman fan squee with delight. Since Batman is completely human, an oddity in the superhero world, knowing the hows and whys of his evolution makes for a complete superhero collection.
