At one time or another, we've all fantasized about being super heroes. The problem has always been that radioactive spider bites and sun-inspired superpowers are a bit hard to come by. But with The Batman Handbook, this lifelong fantasy can finally become a reality.

With sections on "How to Throw a Batarang," "How to Make a Batsuit," and "How to Bulletproof Your Batmobile," this is the ultimate real-world training manual for any aspiring caped crusader. You'll discover how to:

  • Train a Sidekick
  • Execute a Backflip
  • Survive a Poison Gas Attack
  • Throw a Grappling Hook

With original two-color illustrations by DC Comics artist David Hahn, The Batman Handbook has the information you'll need to emerge victorious against any criminal mastermind. And with Batman Begins releasing in June 2005, and the new animated series The Batman! launched in Fall 2004, The Batman Handbook is sure to be a hit.
