Heritage Auction To Auction The Classic Variant Cover From Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child By Rafael Grampá

“The Golden Child” is Frank Miller’s triumphant return to the world of the Dark Knight, along with superstar artist Rafael Grampá, the mastermind behind the groundbreaking “Mesmo Delivery.” 

This “The Future is Young” Rafael Grampá Dark Knight Returns: Golden Child Variant Cover original art cover shows the older, and former Robin, Carrie Kelley, as the current Batwoman. Carrie was created by Miller in his Dark Knight Returns run, and stands among the few who are credited with saving Batman’s life. 

On November 26, 2019, DC Comics posted the promotional artwork for this series on their social media, where you can see Batwoman throwing a Molotov cocktail, mixed with the phrase “The Future Is Young”. But as soon as it was released, the publisher decided to delete the promo, and in a movement of revolt against possible censorship by China, protesters in Hong Kong adopted the art as a symbol of the protests. The controversy took on worldwide proportions and this art created by Grampá became featured in The GuardianNewsweekBusiness InsiderEntertainment Weekly, New York Post, Rolling Stone, and in hundreds of other vehicles around the planet.
