|Written by Frank Miller; Art and Cover by Miller and Klaus Janson 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.|

Dark....and a classic!
While I was initially confused by all of the small, jumbled drawings and multiple frames featuring copious amounts of words, I grew to enjoy this book a great deal. It ranks behind "Knightfall" (all three parts), "A Death In The Family" and "The Killing Joke", but that is no insult, because it almost approaches the brilliance of those three Batman classics. Miller is a master of crafting dark stories with intriguing characters, and he brings Batman to life in a way that he has never been before. I highly recommend this to die-hard Batman fans as well as anyone who has really only seen "Batman Begins" and/or "The Dark Knight" and is looking to find out more about who Batman REALLY is (remember, he was Bob Kane's comic-book character before he was a movie icon).
what u would expect :)
after having seen the new movie i was interested in finding some of the influences for it... having said that i don't exactly know the correlation between this book and the movie however it turns out to be a great graphic novel by itself.. created by the now famed Frank Miller(sin city, 300)... the book is well drawn (though was not nearly as stylized as his other works.) it covers the adventures of an aged tired batman and his last romp with some famous villians. so if u like batman and want some really interesting backstory, u should check it out p.s. u might not like the new robin though :)
buy this book~!
For any casual or complete fan of batman , this is a must read. With all the recent re- vamps and re- hash's of the batman origin storyline being introduced, it's nice to read something about batman's future. This is in my opinion; the best batman story ever written ( long Halloween, hush , knightfall, death in the family ,the killing joke, year one and the red hood closing that list out) and is so reflective of a world we live in written by the iconic Frank Miller.
By far one of the Greatest Graphic Novels ever written
If you are a fan of Batman, whether movies, comics, or games, this is a MUST READ for anyone who loves Batman, or Frank Miller's work for that matter. This realistic, dark, twisted and gritty tale of Batman in his later years, reemerging from the shadows after he's seen enough of the crime in the world. Gangs, communism, politics, racism, and even human morals are all viewed through Bruce Wayne's eyes in this graphic novel. Buy it, read it, love it.
The Dark Knight Returns by Bob Kane, Frank Miller
This is one of many great Batman title compilations. It is also a big change for the Dark Knight, in which he actually uses weapons to do battle, and the government uses Superman to go after Batman. Batman is the tragic hero. This isn't for the weak. But it is a great book.
