Batman is a cultural, super-hero icon. First introduced in 1939, the alter ego of Bruce Wayne has been known through countless DC comics, a TV series, and mega hit movies. The Batman Files is Bruce Wayne's secret book that consists of journal entries from Batman's war on crime, in-depth villain dossiers and other bat-computer files, faux news articles describing major events in Batman's life, and hundreds of illustrations taken from the comics. The book will also include blueprints and schematics of Batman's costumes, vehicles, weapons, the Batcave and a variety of sketches made to look like they were penned by the Capped Crusader himself, including a child's drawing of the horrible bat Bruce saw down in the cave.
