Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eagerly anticipated sequel to Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is collected for the first time in this 256 page hardcover written and illustrated by Frank Miller with magnificent colors by Lynn Varley.

This incredible volume, designed by multiple award-winner Chip Kidd, features a new introduction by Miller commenting on returning to the world he created fifteen years ago. The book includes the complete 3-part story, plus numerous sketches and other never-before-seen material.

It's been three years since the events of The Dark Knight Returns, and everything is just fine. At least on the surface. What the world at large doesn't know is that it's a total sham. A perfectly choreographed, pretty little world where everything that's ugly, or even potentially disturbing, is all nicely wrapped up with neat little ribbons and swept under the carpet.

Only he knows better. He's watched it fester to near-breaking point, and it's time for the only free man left who can effect any real change to bring it all down around their ears once and for all.

The Dark Knight reutrns once again with a vitality unseen since the first years of his war on crime. Together with his army of Bat-soldiers, including Carrie Kelley - formerly Robin, and now the new Catgirl - the Dark Knight wages a new war on a diseased world that's become completely lost.

The Dark Knight Strikes Again features appearances by such DC icons as Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter, the Atom, the Question, and more. But are they still the World's Greatest Heroes or part of the conspiracy?

Review:

"DK2 is a great book. Miller has done for comics what the Ramones et al did for music. This book looks like it was done by a guy with a pen and his girlfriend with an Iman." Tony Millionaire

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:

"His brutal yet elegant noir renderings, pulpy yet eloquent scripting, and thoroughly uncomprimising attitude make him one of the most distinctive voices in comics." Entertainment Weekly "IT Comic Book Project"

Review:

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

Review:

"I'm glad my fellow Vermonter is finally out of the Batcave. Now, when the heck is he going to get to the third issue?" Senator Patrick Leahy

Synopsis:

The long awaited sequel to Batman: the Dark Knight Returns is in hardcover, with a cover designed by Chip Kidd.

It's been three years since the events of The Dark Knight Returns, and everything is just fine. At least on the surface. What the world at large doesn't know is that it's a total sham. A perfectly choreagraphed, pretty little world where everything that's ugly, or even potentially disturbing, is all nicely wrapped up with neat little ribbons and swept under the carpet.

Only he know better. He's watched it fester to near-breaking point, and it's time for the only free man left who can effect any real change to bring it all down around their ears, once and for all.
