Booklist Review: "Gr. 6-8. Only the most devoted fan will read every word of this Batman compendium, but many others will enjoy looking through this huge, heavily illustrated volume. Each colorful spread includes several illustrations, detailed captions, and a paragraph or two of introductory text. Topics include Batman's utility belt, Bruce Wayne, the Batcave, the new Batcave, Batmobiles, Wayne Enterprises, Alfred, Robin, Catwoman, The Penguin, monstrous mutations, and murdering maniacs. Size alone makes this volume, at 12 1/8 by 10 3/8 inches, a better fit for the coffee table than the average library shelf, but for the occasional research or for frequent browsing, it will find an audience in libraries. --Carolyn Phelan"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Readers can uncover the secrets of two superheroes in Batman: The Ultimate Guide to the Dark Knight by Scott Beatty and Spider-Man: The Ultimate Guide by Tom DeFalco. The first, for example, opens with the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents, then tracks Wayne's transformation into the evil-avenging "Guardian of Gotham" and includes reproductions of many drawings from the archives of DC Comics. The latter chronicles the adventures of Peter Parker, who gains unusual powers after being bitten by an irradiated spider, with reproductions of drawings from the Marvel Comics archives. Each contains more than 700 illustrations. ( Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
