Batman is one of the most compelling and enduring characters to come from the Golden Age of Comics, and interest in his story has only increased through countless incarnations since his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Why does this superhero without superpowers fascinate us? What does that fascination say about us? Batman and Psychology explores these and other intriguing questions about the masked vigilante, including: Does Batman have PTSD? Why does he fight crime? Why as a vigilante? Why the mask, the bat, and the underage partner?

Mike Chamberlain does an outstanding job reading this book and keeping you engaged with the material. Beyond him, is Mr. Langley's respectful and insight into the weaving of psychology with the Batman mythos. I was enthralled the entire time and was enlightened to connections I had never considered. This book goes back to the beginning of the Batman title and documents the different variations which have arisen. This title is one I look forward to hearing again and using as a reference in debates with friends.
