Editorial Disaster but An Exciting Book for Superhero Enthusiasts! 30 septembre 2009
Par M. Udlock - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
For collectors who enjoy collecting books about comicbooks and superheroes, this is an essential piece of your library. I am happy to own it, bu I would have been extremely frustrated if I paid the original list price.

The DC Comics Encyclopedia, by DK Publishing, reflects some of the sloppiest editorial work I have ever read from a professional book publisher. I have been in education most of my adult working life and I expect a higher standard of quality work from my teenage students when it comes to reviewing and editing their own work.

I am not qualified to evaluate the accuracy of the information but you don't need to be an expert to spot the many flaws. Many pictures are mislabeled. Some sentences just stop midway and pick up with the next sentence. I have even found what looks like editorial notes that were clearly intended for one of the many contributors. It is incredible to believe that this would miss the watchful eye of the editor and publisher and actually make it to print.

As a reference book, The DC Comics Encyclopedia still has value. I can only hope that the person or people responsible for the sloppy work are not hired on for additional projects in the near future. Comics may not be considered "high literature" but for those of us who admire the work of the creators, artist, writers, and publishers of comic books...we, along with the creators, themselves, deserve more respect than what is evidenced by the work in this book.

Beautiful Book but no longer Relevant 26 octobre 2012
Par Eric K. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a beautiful, giant-sized coffee table book for any fan of DC Comics. It gives you an in-depth, yet succinct, account of DC Comics' heroes, villains, and those in between. It provides their statistics and a well-written history for each. Each entry is dotted with images from the actual comics across the years. Also included are entries for important events in the DC Universe, such as the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The downside? None of the facts and figures in this book are relevant anymore in DC Comics' New 52 reboot. The heroes and villains in the current DC Comics no longer have the history displayed so wonderfully in this book.

So, if you're a huge fan of DC Comics pre-2011, this is a fantastic book for you. It serves as a great reminder of the classic stories that DC offered prior to scrapping everything and starting over. Just be aware that none of the information presented apply to present-day DC Comics.

Good expantion 29 juin 2012
Par K. Pring - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I originally had the DC Encyclopedia without the expanded updates and I have to say I like the updated information the larger book provides, what I think they did, however, war remove some of the character (doing a side by side comparison) to make room for the newer characters and/or thier discriptions. Overall it is a great book, I do think the next expantion should be just a separate, smaller book with the new material in it like the Watchmen world and the new "Before Watchmen" series they've started as well as the revamp for the NEW 52, (which I a very much enjoying for those who wonder), thanks for reading folk, have a nice day!

Dive into the world of DC 20 septembre 2012
Par Jennie Quinn - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I never thought for one moment that I will be interested in the world of DC or Marvel until recently. My son is using these books to educate me. We have worked through the alphabetic list in the book and are now at S where all the Super Heroes enter the arena. As we page through this beautifully illustrated book, my 10 year old lectures me on the different heroes, how they fit together in certain stories, who is the father/mother/brother/sister of who and how to tell a villain from a hero. I am so happy I bought these books. They are a treat for anybody who enjoys comics. Each listed character comes with his/her own character guide: a detailed info sheet explaining all about the character and it is also a quick reference guide. What I really would like to do is make boxes for each of his six books, because these are going to become family heirlooms. They are hard cover, quite heavy and big, or as my son pointed out: a solid foundation to sound knowledge of the world of DC!

Exceptional Encyclopedia 11 octobre 2008
Par Tim Lasiuta - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The job of doing any encyclopedia is daunting, and even more so if you are dealing with a company like DC Comics and a 70 year history. The big question any compiler/contributor has to ask is exactly what time frame do you focus on? With DC, we have had a Crisis, 52, and a slew of important storylines in every long lasting title.

WIth this update, the team of Greenberger, Beatty, Wallace, and Jiminez have expanded the previous Encyclopedia with information on the newest multiverse changing series. The 'older' entries on golden age and one or two shot appearances have not been changed, but those characters with current histories have been modified. Entries for Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Justice League are short, but substantial works have been written on those characters already.

The detail in the entries reminds me of the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Universe in that the whole entry on earth now reads Mostly Harmless, so the 5 page entry pales with respect to the Fleischer volume. Artwise, the Alex Ross cover is almost worth the price of the book itself, but inside the book the entry illustrations are garnered from the comics. Much of the art has been cleaned up and digitally colored. As much as I like the look, 'modern' looking GIl Kane art from the 60's almost defeats the purpose of the Silver age addition.

Pegging in at almost 400 pages, this book is a sure winner. The only way that this style of book could be more comprehensive is the production of a Golden Age Guide to DC Comics, Silver Age, Bronze Age, and Modern Age Guide to DC Comics, OR, an online guide with entries as long as researchers can make them. (but not Wikipedia).

This is the best we can expect considering the subject and expansive breadth of the topic. Enjoy the ride. This just could be the writers bible for every DC title...
