The deeper issues surrounding one of the nation's most revered superheroes, unmasked at last Batman has grown from a comic book character into a franchise and merchandise goliath, spinning off live-action and animated TV shows, Hollywood blockbusters, video games, action figures, and an endless array of merchandising. Timed to publish with the release of the new Batman movie in 2008, Batman and Philosophy takes a deeper look at the famous caped crusader, offering entertaining answers to the fascinating ethical questions everyone has always had about the man behind the mask.
