Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (DC Modern Classics) Hardcover

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.

DC Collectibles Reveal Gerard Way’s Batman & Joker Statues

Ahead of this weekend’s New York Toy Fair, DC Collectibles has unveiled a sneak peek of its 2018 lineup, which includes two new entries in its Batman: Black and White line, based on artwork by the curator of Young Animal, Gerard Way.

The statues of Batman and Joker are based on illustrations revealed by Way on Twitter in 2013. The designs are titled “Kingdom of the Mad,” a Batman story that was approved by DC Entertainment for release through Vertigo but unfortunately never saw the light of day.

Beyond the Dark Knight and The Joker, Way also released designs for Robin, Two-Face, The Penguin, The Riddler and Mr. Freeze, hinting at a massive and story. Now, however, at least part of Way’s vision will live on in the form of these statues.

Perhaps, if the demand for the statues proves strong, DC could finally be persuaded to make the miniseries a reality.

Priced at $80 each, the two statues will be released in October 2018.

Walla Walla’s Adam West Day Unveils Official Poster & Adds New Festivities

Holy celebration, Batman! Walla Walla has added to its day to honor legendary actor Adam West. Walla Walla is celebrating the life of its favorite son on Tuesday, Sept. 19 — known the world over as Batman and later the voice of Mayor Adam West on the show The Family Guy — in a way that only West’s hometown can.

Held on West’s birthday, “Adam West Day” will include a day full of festivities, including a recently announced appearance by The Batmobile, a live Q&A with director James Tooley and producer Ralph Garmin immediately following the showing of their documentary “Starring Adam West”, and the unveiling of a recently completed Adam West poster by American animation and comic book artist Ruben Procopio.

Walla Walla, the heart of Washington wine country with more than 120 wineries, knows how to throw a party. The Adam West Day events now include:

– Q&A panel at The Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center in downtown Walla Walla with Ruben Procopio, an American animation and comic book artist, animator, and sculptor, who West once called his personal sculptor.

– A showing of the documentary “Starring Adam West” at the Gesa Power House Theatre in downtown Walla Walla, followed by a live Q&A with the film’s director, James Tooley, and producer, Ralph Garmin

– Official lighting of the Bat Signal at 9 p.m.

– Photo opportunities with The Batmobile all day long.

– Live music and kids activities in the downtown Walla Walla Plaza.

Adam West died on June 9 in Los Angeles, but his Walla Walla roots run deep. He was born in 1928 in Walla Walla as William West Anderson. He grew up in what was then a tiny southeastern Washington farming community, before moving to Seattle at age 15. After graduating from high school, though, he returned to Walla Walla and graduated from Whitman College. In 1959, he changed his name to Adam West and began his acting career, famously portraying Batman in the 1960s television version of the comic book hero. Though he moved away from Walla Walla, he returned frequently throughout his life. And it seems most every longtime Walla Walla resident has a personal Adam West story to share.

All net proceeds from the event will be donated to Camp Rainbow, a camp based in Idaho for children who are either cancer survivors or are undergoing treatment for blood-related cancer diseases. West was a supporter of the camp.
