DARK KNIGHT III is only a day away! If you spend any time at all around these parts, you know we’ve been talking about the third installment in the acclaimed Dark Knight saga for weeks. But last Friday, someone special joined in on the conversation—Frank Miller himself!
On November 25, DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE explodes onto comic retailer and digital shelves everywhere! This eight-issue limited series is the sequel to 1986's ground-breaking THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS and the follow-up to 2001-2002's THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN. And in 2015, Frank Miller is back, along with co-writer Brian Azzarello, artist Andy Kubert and longtime collaborator, inker Klaus Janson, who's reuniting with Miller for the first time in 30 years.
We know you've got a lot of questions.
A LOT of questions.
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.
Next year, Frank Miller’s THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS celebrates its 30th Anniversary. Yes, it’s been three decades since we first met Carrie Kelley and Commissioner Yindel and watched Batman grapple in the grime with the Mutant Leader. With a new Dark Knight miniseries about to hit the stands, we’re certainly not letting this milestone pass unobserved and our cohorts in DC Collectibles are excited to get in on the fun.
We’re still a few weeks away from the debut of DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE (on sale 11/25), but that doesn’t mean we’re gonna stop whetting your appetites with more from the upcoming chapters in this highly anticipated saga!
