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.
