Batman and Spider-Man Fans, Test Your Knowledge With These Trivia Books


You think you know Batman and Spider-Man? Then prove it with these trivia books that ask every question you could possibly think to ask about your favorite superheros. The Unofficial Spider-Man Trivia Challenge and The Unofficial Batman Trivia Challenge each contain over 250 pages filled with questions that are likely to stump even the most devout of fans.


Author Alan Kistler is a comic book historian who writes the "Agent of S.T.Y.L.E" column on Newsarama and has been featured on CNN to discuss his views on all things comics. In other words, this guy knows his stuff and has scoured through the huge amount of background material on both of these characters to come up with an incredibly comprehensive list of questions. I interviewed Alan on The GeekMoms Podcast about the research that went into creating these books and even he learned a few new things along the way.

There are sections with questions on the heros and villains, comics, television and film appearances, and even the creators of the characters themselves. Each chapter has its own graded quiz that you can tally at the back of the book to come up with a final score and get your fan rating. Are you just an Enthusiast who doesn't even know who Peter Parker is or are you an Expert who could outscore Bruce Wayne? You'll know by end of these books.


I received copies of these books for review purposes.

    1. My wife actually has more knowledge on Spider-Man than I, but we'd probably enjoy both books.
