Writer/artist Frank Miller completely reinvents the legend of Batman in this saga of a near-future Gotham City gone to rot, 10 years after the Dark Knight s retirement. Forced to take action, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of fury, taking on a whole new generation of criminals and matching their level of violence. He is soon joined by a new Robin a girl named Carrie Kelley, who proves to be just as invaluable as her predecessors. Then, it s three years later and the DC Universe is at peace. At least on the surface. And Batman must return once again to save the world from itself. Still, things look fine: a perfectly choreographed, pretty little world where everything that s ugly, or even potentially disturbing, is all nicely wrapped up with neat little ribbons and swept under the carpet. Only Batman knows better. He s watched it fester to near-breaking point, and it s time for the only free man left who can effect any real change to bring it all down around their ears once and for all. Collects Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1-4, Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again #1-3 and bonus design and story pages.
