Hailed as a comics masterpiece, THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS is Frank Miller's (300 and SIN CITY) reinvention of the legend of Batman. It remains an undisputed classic, one of the most influential stories ever told in comics, and is a book cited by the filmmakers as an inspiration for the most recent Batman movies. It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired, and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now, when his city needs him most, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of glory. Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenage female Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against his two greatest enemies, the Joker and Two-Face, for the final time Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one of them will survive.
Frank Miller's masterpiece
Believe it or not kids, there was a time when Frank Miller wrote comics that weren't stupid, parodies of dark comics. In fact, he created a masterpice!
Best Batman comic ever!
I don't know how this comic could possibly be any better! Every sentence, every illustrated picture is perfect! DC Comics should be proud to have published such a novel! There never was a better Batman comic produced than the Dark Knight Returns!
Amazing story, I just don't know if I can personally spend money on comic without getting the physical copy. It feels.. empty (sob).
