I believe it’s extremely important to foster a child’s imagination, and comic books are the perfect way to do that. With fantastical settings and characters, comics are a beautiful breeding ground for creativity. And now Insight Kids has come up with a unique way to foster that love of comics while giving parents a chance to connect with their youngsters.
I introduce to you Batman: Flashlight Projections: Heroes and Villains, and new bedtime activity book that uses illustrated cutout screens to project a selection of scenes and locations from the Batman universe on your wall at home with just a flashlight.
Check out some images below, and be sure to pick this up when it comes out!

A Unique Bedtime Activity for Young Readers
Written by Jake Black – Illustrated by Scott Buoncristiano
Insight Kids is pleased to announce Batman: Flashlight Projections: Heroes and Villains (September 25, 2018 / $16.99). Using illustrated cutout screens, Batman: Flashlight Projections allows children to project their favorite scenes and locations from the Batman universe at home with a flashlight. They can read along and answer the call of their very own Bat-Signal, play the part of Robin, and fight off The Joker with this one-of-akind tour through the most action-packed moments from the Batman universe.
In addition to the exciting and memorable scenes based on the iconic DC Super Hero Batman, a blank page in the back lets kids create their own projection.
Now anyone can now be a citizen of Gotham City and watch the adventures of the world’s greatest detective—Batman!
