Publisher Comments:

The comics masterpiece "Batman: the Dark Knight" Returns is back in hardcover, with a new cover designed by Chip Kidd.

The Batman has not been seen in ten years, some now consider him more myth than reality, but crime and violence have continued in Gotham City. Bruce Wayne had reached a point in his life where he can no longer silence the voice of his vigilante side aching to break free. The Dark Knight must return!

I'm honestly not a huge Frank Miller fan; I don't really like the boxy way he tends to draw human figures, and I have some... philosophical issues with Sin City. BUT, it's impossible to deny his impact on the industry, particularly in the case of The Dark Knight Returns. This and Alan Moore's The Watchmen basically revamped (and some say ruined) the costumed superhero. With this book, as well, Miller firmly establishes comic books as being "for grown ups," if only due to the violence therein. I still feel some ambivalence toward Miller's work, but this is an undeniably powerful portrayal of Batman.
