Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Bringing the world of DC Comics to your fingertips, Fandex celebrates Super Heroes and Villains and their larger-than-life stories in a deluxe edition of 75 individually die-cut, full-color cards.

Meet the young Bruce Wayne, whose inspiration for Batman came crashing through a window. Brainiac with a “twelfth level” intellect, who literally bottled civilizations. Hawkman and Hawkgirl, subjected to cycle after cycle of death and reincarnation after their souls bonded in Ancient Egypt. The vapid playboy Ollie Queen who, stranded on an island in the South Seas, is dubbed “Auu Lanu Lau’Ava” or Green Arrow by the natives. Plus Superman, Lex Luthor, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, the Joker, Captain Marvel, Robin, and many more.

Obsessively researched, the deck unfolds with layers of information, including biographies, origin stories, motivations, secret affiliations, mysterious powers and weaknesses, plus the year and issue each character made its debut. From the essential—the Crisis on Infinite Earths—to the offbeat—how Penguin sold his own memorabilia—it’s a complete history of the DC Comics universe.

I purchased this book for my grandsons, ages 7 and 5. They love it so much that I purchased a second one so they would each have a copy as well as two more to have on hand for gifts. My grandsons really enjoy flipping through the Fandex cards to check facts about each super hero or villain and the author has made it easy for them to read about the super heroes' real names, powers, and background information on how their character developed. I would recommend this book for any child or adult who is a fan of DC Comics Super Heroes as well as other comic book characters. Great job Randall.

So our little superhero is crazy about DC Comics. The only problem is that I have no clue who anyone is except for Batman or Superman. This reference collection is fantastic. It gives a very detailed background about the characters. It is like one big family tree of superheroes. I found it very interesting. I started reading about the characters that were in my son's comics and just kept going through them all. I really like the way that it is in a "fan." It is easy to look up any villain or hero. It also looks cool. We use it for decoration on my son's superhero bookshelf.

We bought this for our 4-year-old who loves superheroes. Each swing out page is packed with information and topped with an instantly recognizeable picture of the hero/villain. He loves it, and it's a lot more fun for him to look through than a standard style book.

My only quibble with the fandex is that the pages themselves are a little less substantial than I would have liked, and the irregular edges along the tops of each page can catch on each other when you try to slide everything back together. It's not hard for an adult or a careful older child to get everything back together nicely, but be prepared for bent and torn pages if you give this to a young child.

Not wanting to impose standards on anyone, just wanting to inform you that there are quite a few women dressed in typical comic book style of naked but with a bit of spandex or leaves placed here or there. I should have known before purchasing it, but I was thinking "batman, superman, my boys will love it" and then when we flipped through it realized what I had actually purchased. Not wanting to make hormone battles any more difficult for my boys than it already is, I decided to return it. The "look inside" button will give you an opportunity to make the decision for yourself. I think it at least shows Poison Ivy. Also- discusses seduction and lovers, another thing I would have liked to have known before purchasing.

I bought the Star Wars and read that in my free time at school until I finished it. I loved it so much. So when I found out their was one for DC super heroes and villains, I knew I had to get one. So I bought one as soon as I could and loved it so much.

I bought this for my six year old son for Christmas and he loved it! The pictures and colors are great, and there is a surprising amount of detailed information on each card. My husband and son had great bonding time reading through the character details on each card.
Truth be told, I think my husband likes them as much as our son does!
