One of the most highly anticipated sequels of all-time is finally here in BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT: MASTER RACE!

In 1986, Frank Miller introduced his iconic take on Batman and changed the face of comics forever. Now, three decades after BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, Miller himself has returned with a third chapter to his groundbreaking saga.

It’s been three years since the Batman defeated Lex Luthor and saved the world from tyranny. Three years since anyone has seen Gotham City’s guardian alive. Wonder Woman, Queen of the Amazons…Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern…Superman, the Man of Steel…all of the Dark Knight’s allies have retreated from the front lines of the war against injustice.
But now a new war is beginning. An army of unimaginable power led by Superman’s own daughter is preparing to claim Earth as their new world.
The only force that can stop this master race—Batman—is dead.
Long live the new Batman…

Collecting the full nine-issue miniseries and its mini-comic tie-in issues, BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT: MASTER RACE features incredible artwork from comics icon Andy Kubert (FLASHPOINT), as well as Klaus Janson (THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS), John Romita Jr. (ALL-STAR BATMAN), Eduardo Risso (100 BULLETS) and Frank Miller himself!
Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s and rose to fame while first drawing, and then writing, Daredevil for Marvel Comics. He was also the creative force behind BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, BATMAN: YEAR ONE and BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN. His many works have not only redefined classic characters, but ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad at all Considering Frank Miller's body of work in the past 15 years, this title was launched with some skepticism. However, with Azzarello co-writing, this is a pretty decent story. Is it ground breaking in the same way that the Dark Knight Returns was? Not even close but it's better then you would assume. Kubert's art is a take on Frank Miller's style so it's not for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iconic This is a must in any Batman fan's collection. A work that stands on it's own and is highly recommended by any and all graphic novel collectors. Miller at his best, Azzarello compliments perfectly and classic Kubert supporting it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed this! Compared to the previous sequel this one delivers a lot better. The original is by far the best of the trilogy however the art and the story I found to be very good. There were throwbacks to the original art but all in all a good read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reread the original Dark Knight Returns fifty times before reading this boring sequel The Dark Knight returns is one of my favourite mini-series of all time. And like The Matrix (one of my fav movies of all time) the two sequels have proven that you can't improve upon perfection and only fall flat on your face when you try. This is the second sequel and Miller decided to ask a Kubert (the brother that is the worse artist) for help drawing and Azzarello for help writing but they couldn't save this story from being ho-hum. The original Dark Knight Returns was so perfect (just like the Matrix) and had something original and new to say and these sequels (like the Matrix sequels) have nothing to say and just throw stuff at you hoping to recapture the original's magic. First off - Frank Miller does do some of the art for the back-up stories and it is horrifying how bad it is. This is the guy who was once considered the TOP artist and now he looks like an amateur with a Sharpie marker. Second, the story reminds me of a bad Hollywood blockbuster - yes there is a story and yes there is an ending with a nice resolution and yes we get to see out favourite heroes trotted out (Aquaman, Atom, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash with Superman and Batman in the lead roles) but the story is so by the numbers it is impossible to believe this is the same Frank Miller who wrote the classics of Batman Year One and Daredevil Born Again (and the ground breaking Sin city stories). Miller is such a mystery to me - he either writes comics that surpass anything that has gone before and become ideas that every other writer tries to copy or he writes dreck (Yiddish for "poop"). At the end of the day this is horrible but to me it is MORE horrible because a master story-teller wrote something that was pretty boring.

Editorial Reviews

"Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and other heroes are back on the page showcasing Miller's distinctive flavor." —USA Today "Frank Millers's return to the DARK KNIGHT universe is not only an all-star collaboration, but also the rare comic-book "event" that lives up to its own hype." —Washington Post "Penciller Andy Kubert and inker Klaus Janson remain as on-point as ever." —New York Daily News   "Engaging.... a smart, gripping read." —PopMatters    "It's hard to resist a comic that features the talents of Frank Miller, Klaus Janson, Brian Azzarello, and Andy Kubert. Alone, any one of these guys could sell a comic. With their powers combined? It's insane. Enjoy the ride, because Dark Knight III: The Master Race is pretty damn good." —Nerdist  "Recapturing much of the original's unique visual flavor." —IGN  "The main story is all-but-perfect." —Comic Book Resources
