Batman: Dark Knight Returns
The best Batman story ever told
- The epic tale by Frank Miller
- Possibly the best Batman story ever written
- You don't really know Batman until you've read this
Vowing upon his parent's death to rid the city of the criminal element,
the Batman has, over the years, fought crime in its many macabre forms...
For the last ten years no one has seen or heard from him...
that is, until now..
We love Batman. Some of us monkeys would even say Batman is our favorite -man. Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, written in 1986, is quite possibly the best Batman story ever written. Reinventing Batman as his older, darker self while keeping the core elements of his story intact was no easy task. Some argue that The Dark Knight Returns was responsible for the renaissance of both Batman as a dark hero and the comics industry as a whole. While the story is set in an alternate future, you'll still see familiar faces: Robin, Alfred, Commissioner Gordon, Two-Face, and The Joker. The story will compel you to turn pages while the artwork will beg you to savor every frame. It's been a decade since Batman was last seen in Gotham, Bruce Wayne is an aging and broken man, but his belief that he can orchestrate the change needed to turn the city around drives him back into a life of crime-fighting. But is he no different than the villains he fights?
