Dc Comics Super Heroes and Villains Fandex Review


Dc Comics Super Heroes and Villains Fandex Review

About the Book: Celebrate 75 years of DC Comics with an obsessive Fandex Deluxe: a supersized deck of 75 iconic heroes and villains whose power over the popular imagination has never been stronger (think The Dark Knight, last summer's $1 billion blockbuster).

The gang’s all here: Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Green Lantern, Captain Marvel, Justice League of America, the Flash. So are their nemeses—the Joker, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Lex Luthor, Cheetah, Brainiac, Poison Ivy, Deathstroke. Meticulously researched, with layers of information covering origins, biography, back-stories, affiliations, motivations, weaknesses, and fascinating trivia, the deck adds up to an insider’s history of the DC Universe. And what better way to present it than in the format with super powers—Fandex and its die-cut cards perfectly capture the characters in one dynamic pose after another, with the art taken straight from the pages of the original comics.

From the essential—learn about the Crisis on Infinite Earths—to the improbable—discover how Lex Luthor became President of the United States—to the offbeat—did you know that Clark Kent and Lois Lane lived in a building owned by Wayne (i.e., Batman) Enterprises: it’s a handheld feast for new¬comers and passionate comics fans alike.


Our Take: We love Batman.  We love Dc Comics.  Period.  We get a lot of encyclopedias and ultimate guides on our favorite comic characters, but we don't often get cool little niche books like this.  We recently reviewed the Star Wars fandex and we get more of the same fan goodness from the Dc Comics version.

This index guide basically gives you great full-color artwork of your favorite Dc characters, beginning with a few Batman characters and villains and moving onto the rest of the DC Universe.  The cards each give info about the characters and the backs include some backround on the last 75 years of the Dc Universe.  This is a great collectible for any young adult or adult fan!
