With the conversation and buzz building up over who will be in the next Batman Movie I thought we should take a moment to point out what should be the obvious. The DC Comics Encyclopedia is a must have for any writer of DC comics movie. This book is a wonderful reference full of heroes and villains from the DC Universe. For each character they give at basic bio sheet, what comics they appear in and a couple of paragraphs with some basic information. They also cover the different organizations like The Justice League and The Justice Society. As a fan I love this book and use it often as a quick reference sometimes to refresh my memory and with the more obscure characters like Bat-Mite a good starting source of information.
