Entertainment Encyclopedias - Booklist

This volume in the Entertainment Encyclopedias series (4 titles) focuses on superheroes and is
sure to be a kid magnet. The bright, enticing cover, graphics-rich pages filled with accessible
snippets of text, and breezy tone effortlessly combine to introduce 45 super-beings, covering
origin stories, alter egos, special powers, and nemeses. There’s also information regarding who
created them and when, their various iterations (comic books, movies, TV shows, cartoons), and
mentions of conflicting story lines within a character’s arc. The four-page entries are arranged
alphabetically and feature classic characters (Batman, Wonder Woman), slightly less-known
individuals (She-Hulk, Jean Grey), and new members of the always-evolving X-Men and Marvel
Universe. There’s an introductory overview plus back-matter support, including a brief list of
references. This should prove quite popular.
