It's the thirtieth anniversary of THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, and now DC
Comics presents this classic title in a newly redesigned edition! Ten years
after an aging Batman retired, 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 teenaged 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. The original 4-issue miniseries is presented here in its entirety.

Review quote

"In four groundbreaking issues in late 1986, Miller's DARK KNIGHT RETURNS delighted and enraged comic book classicists by turning Batman--a beloved but gimmicky hero who seemed to have the keys of life forever tucked into his utility belt-into a brooding vigilante, bleak, grim and full of rooftop psychosis." -USA Today

"There's never been storytelling quite like this. It took someone who views comics as an art to create it." -Washington Post

"Changed the course of comics." -Rolling Stone

"It's film noir in cartoon panels." -Vanity Fair

"His brutal yet elegant noir renderings, pulpy yet eloquent scripting, and thoroughly uncompromising attitude make him one of the most distinctive voices in comics." -Entertainment Weekly

About Frank Miller

Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s and rose to fame while first drawing, and then writing, Daredevil for Marvel Comics. He was also the creative force behind Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One and Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again. His many works have not only redefined classic characters, but also, on a few occasions, revitalized the comics industry. His multi-award-winning graphic novel 300 was brought to full-blooded life in the 2007 motion picture of the same name, and in 2008 he directed the feature film Will Eisner's The Spirit. His creator-owned crime saga Sin City first hit the page in 1991, and then the silver screen in 2005, with Miller on board as co-director with Robert Rodriguez. The two returned to direct the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, released in 2014 and featuring two new stories by Miller. In 2015, Miller's returned to his best-selling series with the highly anticipated Dark Knight III: Master Race.
