Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

DC Comics Absolute Editions set the standard for the highest quality, most in-depth presentation of classic graphic novels. Each oversized volume is presented in a slipcase and includes unique additional material making each Absolute Edition a cornerstone of any serious comic collection.

On its publication in 1986, Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns changed the landscape of the graphic novel irrevocably. With its dark vision of Batman’s future and its stunning artwork, The Dark Knight Returns set the world on fire. 15 years later, Miller's sequel, The Dark Knight Strikes Again, further redefined the boundaries of the superhero genre.

Now, both of these comics masterpieces are collected in one giant-sized slipcase edition for the first time ever. Frank Miller has provided a new introduction, a new cover and new art for the slipcase. This edition is also filled with bonus material featuring an excerpt from Miller's original plot for Dark Knight Returns #4, sketchbook material and much more.
