A nicely produced hardback volume of the type DK do so well, this introduces key characters and villains plus a range of chapter headings that cover a lot of back story details including teams, location settings, tech and superpower info. which will help provide some contexts at a basic level for the novice DC Comics reader.
It isn't an encyclopaedia, but an interesting look-through guide; it doesn`t really go into anything in great detail, but there's enough to whet the appetite for more exploration.
Not really one for the seasoned comic book fan (most of the illustrations are of the more recent DC graphic styles with little reference to the original or classic characterisations) but what amounts to a coffee-table book for youngsters.
A sizeable book that is rather light in actual content, but interesting to dip into nonetheless - even if only to admire the graphics.
3 ½ stars would be my ideal rating.
I notice that some reviewers have said it's not for 'serious fans' but it's aimed at children and as such it's a really good introduction to characters they know already but also ones they've yet to 'meet'.
My faves (Deadman, Zatanna etc.) were all there so I was happy :)
For a reader who's knowledge is mostly pre-52, and certainly pre the latest DC reboot, this was a good quick primer to today's Earth-1.
I was slightly disappointed by paper quality, which is a little pulpy, but this isn't an art book, it's the sort of chunky treat I'd have loved to have on my birthday when I was 9 or so.
