Frank Miller’s undisputed masterwork of a broken-down, veteran crime fighter trying to bring Gotham City back from the brink of destruction, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, is now available in a new hardcover edition with an exclusive slipcase, as a part of DC Modern Classics.
It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now as his city needs him most, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of glory.
Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenage female Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against his two greatest enemies, the Joker and Two-Face for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one of them will survive. This collection is hailed as a comics masterpiece and was responsible for the launch of the Batman movies.
This 200 page volume collects Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1-4. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (DC Modern Classics) will go on sale December 11, 2018 and retail for $49.99.
