“The Big Book Of Super-Villains” by Author Morris Katz – Review

The Big Book of Super-Villains Downtown Bookworks

The Big Book of Super-Villains

The Big Book Of Super-Villains by author Morris Katz is one of the six new DC Comics-based releases from Downtown Bookworks you can read this fall. As the title suggests, this enjoyable book covers a number of super-villains from the DC comic book world.

I was provided a free copy of The Big Book Of Super-Villains for review. The opinions are my own.

If you want to ease kids into the awesome world of DC Comics, Downtown Bookworks has numerous titles to help you out. The Big Book Of Super-Villains is recommended for ages 4 and up. However, I think you can easily read the content to younger kids if you want.

As with the previous DC Comics-based books from this publisher, The Big Book of Super-Villains (or TBBOSV in this review) also features a retro art style for all of the heroes and villains included in this new release. Lex Luthor’s old costume is just wow!

I am not sure if every super-villain from the DC comic book world was covered by TBBOSV, but it does have information about a lot of them.

We have the Penguin, Joker, Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Freeze, Cheetah, and other familiar faces. However, there is also Mister Mxyzpltk as well as others that don’t always get the spotlight. It was fun for me to go through this book and see which of the villains I was already familiar with.

The Big Book of Super-Villains review Downtown Bookworks

Author Morris Katz does a great job of condensing each character’s long fictional history and then presenting it in a manner which is easy to understand and covers all of the basics. He also makes sure to add how characters like Poison Ivy and Catwoman are in the gray zone instead of being outright villainous.

This 32-page hardcover book is priced at $16.99 (US)/$19.99 (CA). It features a shiny foil cover and is 10 x 0.4 x 10 inches in dimensions.

TBBOSV is currently available for purchase.
