Product description

Hot on the heels of our incredibly successful "The Marvel Vault" comes this companion volume detailing the history of DC Comics - Marvel's biggest rival, and home to Superman and Batman. "The DC Vault" is exactly like our bestselling "Marvel Vault", this time focusing on the history of Marvel's biggest rival DC Comics, the home of some of the world's best-known comic book characters, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Sandman. This treasure trove of comic book history tells the story of DC over the decades. It contains hundreds of images, from the very first comic to current sketches to copies of writers' and artists' works-in-progress.Doodles, photos, and pencil drawings are all here, allowing the reader to experience the genesis of some of the greatest super heroes ever. But far more than simply a history book, this is an interactive scrapbook with over 30 removable archival reproductions and collectible memorabilia that readers can pull out of plastic sleeves. New Batman movie, "The Dark Knight", starring Heath Ledger and Christian Bale is due for release on 24th July 2008.
