A tour de force of powerful storytelling and intense characterization, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is the tale of a tortured mans effort to save a city spiraling into chaos. An aging, time-worn Batman struggles with the acceptance of a new Robin while facing the latest generation of vicious, hyper-violent criminals. Old foes like the Joker and Two-Face add to the maddening mayhem which Batman must face and somehow conquer. Even Batmans relationship with his friend and ally Superman takes a fresh and inventive turn that would have been unthinkable outside of Frank Millers richly imagined vision of the Dark Knights future. This tenth anniversary edition features 28 pages of sketches, art, text material and an introduction by the author.
