Highlights include insights into the making of the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher/Christopher Nolan Bat-movies, a comprehensive overview of Batman's animated tales (including Static Shock and The Zeta Project) and a run down of Batman's appearances in DC's Original Animated Movies.
If there are any quibbles about Holy Franchise Batman! they are minor and simply come down to the basic presentation of the book, which could have benefited from a few more pictures to illustrate some of the lesser known Bat-shows. Also the inclusion of an episode guide to the '60s TV show is unnecessary given that Batman: The Animated Series isn't granted the same luxury. In fact Collinson would be wise to consider this his next pet project as an episode guide to the DC Animated Universe would be welcomed by many fans.
For hardened Bat-experts the book is unlikely to offer up
anything new, however for newcomers Holy Franchise Batman! is a well written tome that provides a handy overview of the Caped Crusader's screen career.
