All three of my blog readers are already hip to this, but if you stumbled upon this website by happenstance, let me catch y’ up. I love Batman. I mean, like, how could I not? I was 12 in 1989. It was illegal to not love Batman back then. I guess that doesn’t exactly explain why I love him today, a million years later, but still, I never got over this goofball crap. Goodness knows I didn’t love Batman the whole time. Goodness no! How could I? Most Batman movies and comics if we are honest are pretty much awful. I guess what I am getting at, is I love THIS Batman.
Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns is the definitive Batman story. It should have been the last. I’m a huge Frank Miller fan, so this felt like the first place to take the plunge on one of these giant oversized IDW artist editions. The price point, no jiving, is scary, sure, but I’ve looked at this book 420 times since the 3rd of July (RIP America)
