Batman: the Dark Knight strikes again

Front Cover
The long awaited sequel to Batman: the Dark Knight Returns is in hardcover, with a cover designed by Chip Kidd.It's been three years since the events of The Dark Knight Returns, and everything is just fine. At least on the surface. What the world at large doesn't know is that it's a total sham. A perfectly choreagraphed, pretty little world where everything that's ugly, or even potentially disturbing, is all nicely wrapped up with neat little ribbons and swept under the carpet.Only he know better. He's watched it fester to near-breaking point, and it's time for the only free man left who can effect any real change to bring it all down around their ears, once and for all.

The raw and intense artwork (though sometimes confusing) conveys a lot of meaning in this story. It is a story about feelings, those of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, the new Cat Woman. At the same time it shows Batman's determination verging on insanity. In my mind the rough and sometimes simple artwork shows how broken all these "heroes" can be. Its a rough and very political world Frank Miller draws but he also adds a lot of humor and blatant, hilarious sexuality. I have yet to read Batman: The Dark Knight Returns so I cannot compare or contrast the two graphic novels, but I can say that Batman: the Dark Knight strikes again stands on its own as an enjoyable thought provoking piece (Slightly disturbing but not too serious). Over all, it was a quick read. The art didn't detract much from the story, rather it was a good fit.

User Review  - Lindsey Stock - Goodreads

The Dark Knight Strikes Again continues the story of The Dark Knight Returns, although this sequel is not quite as strong as the The Dark Knight Returns. It is still amazing though. Read full review
