Created by Bob Kane in the late 1930s, Batman is one of the world's greatest fictional heroes. "The Ace of Detectives," "The Caped Crusader," "The Dark Knight"--each generation has coined its own favorite nickname to describe this ultimate crime fighter as he wages a relentless war on a gallery of bizarre but deadly villains. For the updated and expanded edition of Batman: The Ultimate Guide to the Dark Knight, DK has been permitted unparalleled access to the archives of DC Comics, the publishers of Batman. Spectacular artworks reveal key installations and equipment, such as the Batcave, the Batmobile, the Batsuit, and the weapons contained in Batman's Utility Belt. Crucial events and characters of the Batman legend are illustrated with spectacular images from the original DC comic books. This new edition covers the most significant post-millenial storylines, plus additional information on the Caped Crusader's classic Silver and Golden Age exploits from the late 1930s to the early 1970s. --

Les Daniels | Chronicle Books LLC | CBR | ISBN 0811842320 | First Paperback Ed | March 26 2004 | 208 Pages | 144.92 MB

Now in paperback, Batman: The Complete History offers a comprehensive overview of the Dark Knight's dark past. Best-selling author Les Daniels covers the gamut - from Batman's creation and runaway success, to the 1954 accusations of Batman and Robin's homosexuality, to the campy antics of the Adam West TV show, and the emergence of Frank Miller's very disturbed and very dark Knight. Illustrated with archival comic book art and rare Batman paraphernalia and designed by Batman's biggest fan, Chip Kidd, this history aims to please the core fans, while converting even more. --

Les Daniels | Chronicle Books LLC | CBR | ISBN 0811829138 | First Printing Ed | October 1 2000 | 220 Pages (c2c) | 104.61 MB

With her great strength, invisible plane, bullet-deflecting bracelets and star-studded style like no other, she's Wonder Woman--known to her friends as Diana. The unconventionalDr. William Moulton Marston originally created her as "psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who should rule the world", and Wonder Woman has done just that, whether battling evil fascists or ensnaring villains with her magic lasso. Illustrated with fascinating archival comic book art, photographs, and paraphernalia, is--like its companion volumes in this exceptional series, and --a true tribute to the splendid super hero. --

Superman: The Complete History - The Life and Times of the Man of Steel (Paperback)
Les Daniels | Chronicle Books LLC | CBR | ISBN 0811842312 | First Paperback Ed | June 2004 | 192 Pages | 132.22 MB

While comic books trace their origins to the late 19th century, Superman, who debuted in 1938's , is virtually synonymous with the medium. Yet, as Superman: the Complete History shows, the Man of Steel has also made a lasting impact in comic strips, film, toys, TV, radio, and even on Broadway. In this beautifully composed volume, Les Daniels collects rare and never-before-seen early artwork by Superman's teenage creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (including a two-page doodle from 1936 featuring early Superman costume designs), and he chronicles the evolution of the character from an orphan alien comics hero to a complex multimedia icon. Entire pages are devoted to photographs of the various costumes worn by TV and film incarnations, of numerous action figures and related toys, and of movie poster and stills. Several comics stories are also reproduced in their entirety. Almost as impressive as the stunning art design is Daniels's narrative: covering the 60 years from 1938 to 1998, he collects interviews with several writer-artist teams that detail the changes in the Man of Steel and his relationships with Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Lex Luthor, and Perry White. Daniels's examination of the "Death of Superman" story arc, in particular, is a fascinating study of Superman's commercial and archetypal appeal. The final pages preview Superman tales by Barry Windsor-Smith and Alex Ross (whose beautiful painted graphic novel Kingdom Come turned many heads). --
