From School Library Journal
Gr 2-5–Pop-up-meister Reinhart incorporates images created by a number of DC artists into a set of spectacular 3-D portraits–both the sort that leap up in massively muscled splendor from the center of each spread and smaller but no less eye-popping figures tucked into folding booklets in the corners. Superman leads off, of course, a solar-powered “living symbol of truth, justice, and the American way” towering over a view of his spacecraft while escaping an exploding Krypton on one side, and, on the other, cameos by a trio of sidekicks, plus Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, and (temporary) nemesis Doomsday. The Man of Steel is followed by Batman (with battery-powered Bat-Signal), “Warrior Goddess” Wonder Woman, the squad of intergalactic Green Lanterns, Lord Darkseid (in a spread devoted to the Bad Guys), and, finally, a 45-character composite of the Justice League of America and its prominent adversaries complete with a numbered legend. Other heroes and villains from Captain Marvel, Teen Titans, and even the Justice Society of America to the Joker and Anti-Monitor take bows in the side galleries. The lettered captions are too concise to get into much detail about, for instance, the “Infinite Crisis” story line but do clearly explain the origins and powers of the major DC players.–John Peters, formerly at New York Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2010.

An impressive group pop-up of the various Green Lanterns in flying formation and mini Pop-ups of Aguaman on his sea horse and Hawkman and Hawkgirl with wings spread also impress! And a pop-up Flash runs on the left of this pop-up 2 page spread! On the next pages the evil Darkseid and his flying alien minions spell pop-up evil and a mini pop-up of over musgular Bane with Catwoman, Penguin and Riddler and Twoface are a menacing group of baddies! Ya gotta be careful closing this mini pop-up, otherwise Catwoman's head gets snagged on Banes biceps!! The last pages have so many super heroes and supervillains fighting each other that it's a good thing the figures are numbered and there is a chart nearby to identify all of them! It took quite a while for me to spot the ones I'm familar with and see which names go together with the ones I didn't know! And there is bound to be dissapointments with fans, "Hey where is Poison Ivy!? Why isn't she with Harley Quinn?!" Speaking of Harley, who was invented for Bruce W. Timm's animated version of Batman the animated series, the art here is much more detailed then those cool cartoons that I prefer watching over the live action movie versions of these characters! Maybe a pop-up version of Bruce W. Timm's Batman and Superman shows will be made by Mr. Reinhart in the future! Anyway these have a great animated feeling to them! As someone who has made his own pop-ups in the past as well as animated drawn cartoons, I appreciate the talent and creativity that I see here! Highly recommended!
