Frank Miller has had better.
His first novel of the series the Dark Knight Returns was an absolute masterpiece, this one, not so much. It lacks a lot of the excellence the first one had, but still it had its good spots, like an unexpected ending and some creativity. Bottom line, good but there are better.
worst batman story ever
As a lifetime long Batman fan who rejoiced at the charaters revitalization in Miller's first book I just want to say this is the worst batman story ever. I can only imagine that Miller was doing a lot of some powdered judegement-impeder from Columbia, but seriously this story is just terrible. As soon as I finish writing this I'm going back to pretending it never existed.
