Together with inker Klaus Janson and colorist Lynn Varley, writer/artist Frank Miller completely reinvents the legend of Batman in his saga of a near-future Gotham City gone to rot, ten years after the Dark Knight's retirement. This masterpiece of modern comics storytelling, BATMAN- THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, brings to vivid life a dark world and an even darker man.

The Dark Knight returns in a blaze of fury, taking on a whole new generation of criminals and matching their level of violence. He is soon joined by a new Robin-a girl named Carrie Kelley, who proves to be just as invaluable as her predecessors.

But can Batman and Robin deal with the threat posed by their deadliest enemies, after years of incarceration have made them into perfect psychopaths? And more important, can anyone survive the coming fallout from an undeclared war between the superpowers-or the clash of what were once the world's greatest heroes?

Celebrate thirty years of one of the most influential stories ever told in the comics medium with the undisputed classic BATMAN- THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, now with a new cover and introduction.

Reviews for Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (GN) (30th Anniversary Edition)

In four groundbreaking issues in late 1986, Miller's DARK KNIGHT RETURNS delighted and enraged comic book classicists by turning Batman--a beloved but gimmicky hero who seemed to have the keys of life forever tucked into his utility belt-into a brooding vigilante, bleak, grim and full of rooftop psychosis. --USA TODAY Changed the course of comics. --ROLLING STONE There's never been storytelling quite like this. It took someone who views comics as an art to create it. --WASHINGTON POST It's film noir in cartoon panels. --VANITY FAIR His brutal yet elegant noir renderings, pulpy yet eloquent scripting, and thoroughly uncompromising attitude make him one of the most distinctive voices in comics. --ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
