With unparalleled access for the archives of DC Comics, Batman: the Ultimate Guide to the Dark Knight offers spectacular illustrations reveal the secret workings of key installations and gear like the Batcave, the Batmobile, Batman's suit, and also the weaponry contained in his Utility Belt. Crucial events and characters with the Batman legend are illustrated with drawings from the original DC comic books. Panoramic views of Gotham City and Arkham Asylum with its villainous inmates, enable readers to enter into Batman's world.

Just as DK did with the people and paraphernalia of Star Wars in Star Wars: Episode I: Incredible Cross-Sections and Star Wars: Episode I: Visual Dictionary, this guide pulls apart and pokes at the very a few gadgets and backdrops found in the Dark Knight's world. (And no doubt future historians will appreciate his capsulized, 1939-on Batman timeline as an uncanny window into American pop consciousness. Batman scholar Scott Beatty has compiled hundreds of excellent panels and covers from the original comic, and he displays commanding expertise cataloging Gotham's most colorful characters in big, splashy spreads.) Exploded diagrams reveal the innards of the new and old Batcaves, and stat-packed tags and captions spell out everything from how the Bat-Signal works to where Catwoman stashes her bullwhip.

Die-hard fans will find much lacking here, though, like the near-omission of Frank Miller's genius Dark Knight Returns series and not even a passing reference to Batman's poignant love-hate relationship employing the Man of Steel. --Paul Hughes But what DK's Ultimate Guide does, it does well--examining neat Bat-minutiae and providing a primer on the post-no-man's-land comic continuity.
