John Romita, Jr. Discusses His New Comic, Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade

Romita Cover Final_5644dff9677697.71329072

Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade is a one-shot set before the events of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, which will be punching its way into comic shops in 2016.

Nearly thirty years ago, Frank Miller introduces us to an older, far more wizened Batman late in his career. But the newest Dark Knight project, Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade, will take us back to over ten years before this classic work, when Batman was still actively fighting crime with his previous Robin, Jason Todd, at his side, revealing the previously untold story of how Jason met his end in Frank Miller’s Dark Knight universe and featuring the first appearance of Miller’s Joker since his death in The Dark Knight Returns.

Co-written by the Dark Knight III duo of Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello, Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade will be a 64-page prestige format one-shot drawn by legendary artist John Romita, Jr..

Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade #1 by Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello and John Romita, Jr. will be in stores on February 17, 2016.

In an exclusive interview, artist John Romita, Jr. discusses this eye-opening new chapter of the Dark Knight saga. Read the interview HERE.

Jim Lee & Dan DiDio And Reveal Dark Knight III Origins And New Interior Art


In a new video from DC All Access, DC Co-Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio dive deep behind the scenes of Dark Knight III: The Master Race, exploring the genesis of the series, as well as showing off some previously unseen interior art from series artist Andy Kubert.


Regarding the origins of the Dark Knight sequel, DiDio revealed that the story originated when DC contacted Frank Miller about bringing Carrie Kelly into the “New 52.” Miller suggested doing a new story in his continuity instead. Initially, DiDio lobbied to do a Dark Knight Universe series showing many characters set in that continuity. The idea evolved into Dark Knight III: The Master Race.

As for Andy Kubert’s interior art, Lee praised Kubert’s ability to emulate Miller’s storytelling prowess, also calling on inker Klaus Janson, who inked the original Dark Knight Returns series, as a throughline for Miller’s Dark Knight continuity.
