A "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER! It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now as 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. This collection is hailed as a comics masterpiece and was responsible for the launch of the Batman movies. This volume collects Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1-4.show more

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 creator-owned "Sin City" hit the page in 1991, and then the silver screen in 2005 with Miller on board as co-director. His multi-award-winning "300 "graphic novel was brought to full-blooded life in the 2007 motion picture of the same name, and in 2008 he directed the feature film of "Will Eisner s The Spirit.""show more
