Miller went far beyond the call of duty. The Dark Knight is a success on every level. Firstly it does keep the core elements of the Batman myth intact, with Robin, Alfred the butler, Commissioner Gordon and the old roster of villains, present yet brilliantly subverted. Secondly the artwork is fantastic--detailed, sometimes claustrophobic, psychotic. Lastly it's a great story: Gotham City is a hell on earth, streetgangs roam but there are no heroes. Decay is ubiquitous. Where is a hero to save Gotham? It is 10 years since the last recorded sighting of the Batman. And things have got worse than ever. Bruce Wayne is close to being a broken man but something is keeping him sane: the need to see change and the belief that he can orchestrate some of that change. Batman is back. The Dark Knight has returned. Awesome. --Mark Thwaite --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Highly recommended. This graphic novel shows the dark sole of Batman, and has hilarious 80's kitsch, all wrapped into one.Published 1 month ago by Adam Scrivens

Epic classic by Mr Miller, amazing story as witnessed in the movie. This one lost 1 star from me due to the artwork which I personally think a better job could have been done. Read morePublished 12 months ago by RMG
