Our take: The same company that brought us the Dc Vault releases a much better edition with the Batman Vault.  I was skeptical about these titles when I first heard about them.  I mean how do you really fit a character with 70 years of history into one book.  The answer?  You don’t.  You don’t even try.  What you do instead is make a hardcover scrapbook of sorts.  This book has a ton of information in it.  A lot more than I anticipated.  We have the benefit of writers Robert Greenberger, former Dc Comics editor, and our pal Matthew K. Manning, a very popular writer for Dc Comics.  The book is full of tidbits and inside information that you don’t hear everyday.

You can see from the pictures that every chapter includes a plastic sleeve that has pull-out memorabilia.  From reproduction coloring book pages to production art, you get a great variety of stuff to look at.  There are even some looks at very rare art.

I know that titles like this come off to fans like a gimmick…and it is, but its a gimmick that works.  As a fan, I treasure this title.  I can only hope that every major Dc Comics character will get their own vault treatment.

We should most certainly see them for Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.  I highly recommend picking this one up.  It’d make a fantastic gift for yourself or anyone on your Xmas list!
