Critically acclaimed pop-up engineer Matthew Reinhart celebrates the history, heroes, and villains of the DC Universe in this ultimate 3-D masterpiece! Bursting with over 25 impressive pop-ups, this deluxe format features a variety of unique novelty elements-including a light-up Bat-Signal, a cosmic Justice League of America battle scene, a twirling Lasso of Truth, and a transparent Invisible Jet!
Starring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and many more favorite DC characters, this momentous pop-up exploration releases just in time for DC Comics' 75th anniversary. Signed and numbered by Matthew, this stunning special edition also features a cloth slipcase and an exclusive extra pop, making it an absolute must-have for die-hard DC Super Hero fans of all ages!
As befits the subject matter, the illustrations in this detailed and decidedly heroic pop-up compendium of superheroes and supervillains feel ripped from the pages of classic DC comics. Favorites like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman get their own majestic spreads (sorry, Martian Manhunter!), while mini-booklets highlight their allies, nemeses, and histories. Each spread is dramatic and dynamic, and, as fans have come to expect from Reinhart, clever touches are in abundance: Aquaman's enemy, Black Manta, pulls on his mask as he pops up, and the Bat-Signal lights up above Gotham City. A towering final composition offers a veritable pantheon of characters (who are ID'd in an accompanying legend). Expertly crafted and superfun. Ages 3–up. (Oct.)
