From the Publisher. This masterpiece of modern comics storytelling brings to vivid life a dark world and an even darker man. Together with inker Klaus Janson and colorist Lynn Varley, writer/artist Frank Miller completely reinvents the legend of Batman in his saga of a near-future Gotham City gone to rot, ten years after the Dark Knight’s retirement.

For those of us who for many years suffered ridicule for reading comic books, Frank Miller and The Dark Knight Returns vindicated us.

Chip Kidd

It can’t be easy to effectively redesign a pop culture icon 50 years after its inception, but that is precisely what Miller & Co. did here. And not just formally, not at all. Yes, the page layouts were revolutionary, but it’s the renewed emotional intensity to the saga of what appear to be Bruce Wayne’s last days that truly affect the reader.
