Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Tenth Anniversary Edition

10th-Ann-Hardcover

To highlight the tenth anniversary of Frank Miller’s epic Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, DC Comics offered a special slipcased edition ($100) containing a new signed and numbered hardcover, three 48 page prestige format softcover books filled with additional material and two mini prints of Dark Knight posters. Ten thousand copies were produced.

The signed and numbered hardcover collected the original series and added 24 pages of extras. A new introduction by Frank Miller was written specifically for the special edition.

Three prestige format softcover books containing sketches, the complete script to book one and reviews from various U.S. press outlets fit nicely into the handsome slipcase.

Finally two 6×9″ card stock prints of the original Dark Knight Returns poster and the 10th Anniversary poster round out the collection.

This book has been out of print for many years but is still available via the secondary market for prices that range from $300 to $800. Perhaps DC will publish a new edition as we approach the 30th anniversary of this landmark graphic novel in 2016.
