Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written as a sequel to the groundbreaking Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, this masterly tale takes place three years after Batman's defeat of Superman.

Faking his own death and creating an underworld civilization, Bruce Wayne has been keeping his eye on the world above. And as that false Camelot reaches its breaking point, it is up to the Dark Knight to emerge from the underground shadows and once again restore order to chaos. Joined by his army of Bat-soldiers and his female sidekick Catgirl, an elderly Batman wages a final war against a diseased world in an epic tale that features Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, the Martian Manhunter, and the Atom.

Review:

"[A]ll hell breaks loose, in pages full of bursting shapes, digitized Day-Glo colors and jagged continuity....[A] serious, important comic, a work that's intentionally disturbing in many ways and on many levels." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[Miller's] layouts are even more unconventional, his drawing more cartoonish, the coloring more florid, and his overall attitude just generally more over-the-top [than in The Dark Knight Returns]." Booklist

Review:

"[Miller's] brutal yet elegant noir rendering, pulpy yet eloquent scripting, and thoughly uncompromising attitude make him one of the most distinctive voices in comics." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Miller has pulled off a triumphant return to Gotham — sure footed, chilling, prescient, witty and sometimes laugh out loud funny." USA Today

Review:

"As his peers grow older, Frank Miller just gets younger. DK2 is drawn with the energy and confidence of a teenager who knows in his heart that he's BETTER than Frank Miller, and he's ready to take the world by storm. This book is a startling, befuddling accomplishment. I love it." James Kochalka

Review:

"DK2 makes as revolutionary a take on what troubles the comic books industry as Miller's original novel did....Just as The Dark Knight Returns opened a comic book door to the darker aspects of human life, so does DK2 show how to return fun to comics." Jason Sanford, Flakmag.com

Review:

"This is not a comic that people should read quickly; it is so well done that most will run through it fast the first time. But then they will go back and slowly absorb the concepts, panel by panel." Michael Sangiacomo, Cleveland Plain Dealer

Review:

"The Dark Knight Strikes Again's emphatic call for responsible civil disobedience is both stirring and heartfelt....[DK2] has considerable chutzpah, but its careless execution is regrettable." Claude Lalumière, Infinity Plus

Review:

"A rollicking yarn for those who like to explore the human side of superheroes." Stephanie Schorow, Boston Herald

Review:

"It's fast, it's fun, it's fascinating." Maggie Thompson, Comics Buyer's Guide

Synopsis:

The most eagerly-awaited sequel in comics! Three years after the events in The Dark Knight Returns, Batman knows the world is nowhere near the perfect little place it pretends to be, and he sees the cracks in the system that have been neatly covered up. It's time to find where all the heroes have gone, and the Dark Knight is the right man for the job.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

Frank Miller also wrote and illustrated the legendary Dark Knight Returns, as well as such groundbreaking series as Sin City, which he is currently adapting into a feature film.
