Holy paper engineering, Batman! A first look at DC Comics' upcoming pop-up book

DC_Comics_Superheroes_PopupIn all the current hubbub over 3D, we tend to forget the original three-dimensional entertainment: Pop-up books. Pull here, twist there, spin the wheel; nothing can match the tactile nostalgia of pop-ups, and the folks over at DC Comics have picked up the ball. Little, Brown and Co. is set to publish DC Super Heroes: The Ultimate Pop-Up Book, a collection of paper-sculpted versions of their most popular characters. The book was designed by Matthew Reinhart, a leading pop-up artist, and is scheduled to hit bookstores in October, but for now check out the exclusive video after the jump of Reinhart showing off the Batman page.

What do you think, Shelf-Lifers? Are you fans of pop-ups? Doesn’t that Bat-Signal look pretty sweet?

    I love pop-up books. Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda (who Reinhart sometimes collaborates with) are both incredible artists. I’ll be buying this, even though I’m not a big comic book fan. (Btw, Reinhart also did a Star Wars pop-up book that is equally geek-out worthy!)

    He says he used the Dick Grayson version of Robin, but that’s clearly Tim Drake.

    I’m a huge Sabuda fan but not as familiar with Reinhart, though I do have his Star Wars pop-up. I’m looking forward to this.

    obviously like your web-site but you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I will definitely come back again.
