Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

by Frank Miller


It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now as his city needs him most, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of glory.
Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenage female Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against his two greatest enemies, the Joker and Two-Face for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one of them will survive. This collection is hailed as a comics masterpiece and was responsible for the launch of the Batman movies.
This volume collects Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1-4.
"There's never been storytelling quite like this. It took someone who views comics as an art to create it."---Washington Post

This is the series that got me liking Batman. Some of the scenes in this book have been imitated several times over.
