Does anyone else have this book? Amazon.com: The Batman Files (9781449408220): Matthew Manning: Books I picked it up the other day and it is pretty bad ass. It is super huge and heavy as hell. There is a paper cover that comes off when you remove the plastic wrapping and the actual book cover is like a faux leather. It closes via a magnet and the little bat symbol is made of metal. The book is a huge file created by Batman telling his story and is full of information on his villains, allies, gadgets, techniques etc. The purpose of the file is to help his successor (who he presumes will be Robin) fight crime in Gotham in case of his death or disappearance. It is a really neat book and pretty cool concept. It is definitely worth checking out if you are a Batman fan and have the cash.
