Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank MillerThis masterpiece of modern comics storytelling brings to vivid life a dark world and an even darker man. 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 Knights retirement.
Crime runs rampant in the streets, and the man who was Batman is still tortured by the memories of his parents murders. As civil society crumbles around him, Bruce Waynes long-suppressed vigilante side finally breaks free of its self-imposed shackles.
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 this generations 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 of an undeclared war between the superpowers—or a clash of what were once the worlds greatest superheroes?
Over fifteen years after its debut, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns remains an undisputed classic and one of the most influential stories ever told in the comics medium.

T here are many superheroes an ailing American president might choose to associate with in an effort to pick up some much needed kudos. With so many virtuous options available to him, it seems bizarre that Donald Trump has chosen the Batman supervillain Bane to cosy up to. We can ask ourselves why Trump is such a big fan of the movie, which he reviewed positively on his YouTube channel on its release in But the more interesting question is why on Earth the president thinks this is the film score to soundtrack his fight for re-election. If anything, the supervillain and his cronies can be compared more accurately to Isis, for their brazen ambition and willingness to use human shields to hold on to power at any cost. He is the false prophet who spouts populist rhetoric in an effort to convince the people he is on their side, but in reality only holds their worst interests in his cold, black heart.
