A gang of teenagers are committing crimes in Gotham City in
the name of their leader, The Mutant. After a number of years
in retirement Bruce Wayne decides that the world needs the
Batman again to bring order to the streets. However, he is
being reborn in an age that frowns upon vigilantes and superheroes.
The cost to Wayne will be high and as the powers that be line
up to destroy him he soon realises how high that cost is...
Dark Knight Returns was
originally released in the mid-eighties and was an instant
success. It's not hard to see why. Frank Miller's tale turns
the realm of comic book heroes on its head. Superheroes are,
mostly, a thing of the past and when Batman rears his head
again the USA government send Superman out to destroy him.
Once fighting side by side as members if the Justice League
of America, the two superheroes are pitted against each other
in a fight to the death.
new edition of an old classic is beautifully reproduced in
hardback with reprints of some of Miller's original scripts
and concept sketches. This
graphic novel has been reissued to fit in with a similar design
to last months release of The Dark Knight Strikes Again.
While I understand that, what I can't quite fathom is why
this collection is considerably smaller in page count, yet
demands an additional £5 in price.
you don't already own a copy of this then you really should
treat yourself. One of the greatest graphic novels of all
time - still as ground breaking and beautiful today as it
was back in the 80s.
