Frank Miller‘s politics are… interesting. Dark Knight Returns, a fairly libertarian volume was nevertheless heavily critical of Ronald Reagan‘s interventionist policies. Holy Terror was seen as Islamophobic and reactionary. He spoke out against the Occupy Wall Street protestors, suggesting they should sign up for the US Army. And he talks negatively about Donald Trump, telling us he voted for Hillary Clinton.
Basically, you never know what you are going to get. Well in tomorrow’s Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child by Rafael Grampa and Frank Miller, you get the Dark Knight Universe version of the re-election campaign for Donald Trump. As an anti-Trump march demanding No More Hate and Not Him Again, is hit by a marauding gang of counter-protestors, dressed as The Joker. Trump was previously seen in Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello and Andy Kubert‘s Dark Knight III: The Master Race as a talking head.
With the Dark Knight Universe versions of Supergirl and Superboy, young gods amongst men, watching and commenting on the chaos taking place. And judging it as just what elections are.
