The Dark Knight Returns, arguably the best Batman story of all time — if not the best superhero comic of all time — is getting a gorgeous new statue from Iron Studios. Scheduled for release in the Summer of 2018, the statue features an iconic pose of Bruce and Carrie mid-jump into the fight somewhere […]

Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello participated in an extremely engaging and unmoderated C2E2 panel earlier today, and amidst the humorous barbs flying back and forth between the pair, Miller dropped the following tidbit about the Superman project he hopes to be able to announce with DC, and more: Audience Question: There are a couple pivotal scenes in Dark […]
I’m an original art fan and collector, and one of my fondest memories of working on this site came in 2011 with the auction of an iconic splash page from Dark Knight Returns #3 by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson for a then-record $448,125. I had that post meticulously written out beforehand — or so I […]
As if being trapped on a boat with thousands of *shudder* comic book fans weren’t a frightening enough concept, ill-conceived comic con themed cruise Fan2Sea has announced a partnership with Frank Miller to “bring Sin City to life” in a special cruise ship casino. Billed as “the premier comic book and entertainment vacation cruise” to distinguish itself from […]
DC All-Access asked a whole slew of creators how reading The Dark Knight Returns affected them. Everyone from Dan Didio and Jim Lee to Scott Snyder and Seth Green tell of their first experience with the ground breaking series from Frank Miller. [youtube]https://youtu.be/unhgxn9dhGs[/youtube]
We just got word from our reporter Joe Glass that the legendary comic writer and artist Frank Miller made a surprise visit to the Dark Knight Returns 30th Anniversary panel today as a surprise guest.

For the fast approaching Batman Day, September 26th, DC has released these 8-bit gifs showcasing classic Batman Covers including Batman #1 by Bob Kane, he Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller. and Batman #9 by Jack Bumley.
At C2E2, DC Comics used writer Brian Azzarello to confirm the Bleeding Cool scoop from last year, a threequel to The Dark Knight Returns, DK3: The Master Race. Which, as a few people commented, sounds a little fascistic, even for The Dark Knight. I understand that the original name for the project from Frank Miller was […]
It was a story that Bleeding Cool broke last year. That Frank MiIler would be returning to the Dark Knight world for Dark Knight 3, with the likes of Brian Azzarello and Scott Snyder. Well, at the big DC Comics panel at C2E2 today one of those writers, Brian Azzarello gave the audience three figures […]
So, that was a story, yesterday. Broken by Bleeding Cool, then picked up and confirmed by a number of other reporting organisations. That Frank Miller and Scott Snyder have been planning a threequel to The Dark Knight Returns, while DC Comics beancounters rub their hands ever so excitedly. So what did Scott Snyder have to […]
The original version of The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson may end up inspiring the upcoming Batman/Superman movie from Warners. But today we have another version, a private commission from Frank Cho. I think FRank Cho prefers Batman…

In today’s Jupiter’s Legacy, it’s time for the Utopian to face up to the children. But is it Millar Time… or is it Miller Time? Well, first it’s JMS time, as Utopian chooses to be “Grounded” with the common man. But then… how do you take out a Superman? Well, Miller and Millar start with […]
Oh Justin Bieber, what a tease. Up for Robin, a Superman/Batman script called Batman Vs Superman, and based on the The Dark Knight Falls chapter of The Dark Knight Returns, where Batman fights Superman, crediting Frank Miller and Klaus Janson… In which Robin was a young woman called Carrie Kelley. Hmm. Unless of course, as […]
The top end of the original comic art world has gone through a series of major level-ups over the past two years. In May 2011, market watchers were stunned when a Dark Knight Returns interior splash by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson sold for $448,125. Even in that new market reality, they were stunned again […]
My favorite part of this story is BC forumer Brandon ZK Olmstead predicting it exactly, two months ago in a popular forum thread in which BC forum artists made up their own versions of what the WTF covers ought to be. So very well done, sir. I may be asking you to lay out how Marvel […]
Animated Batman duffs up some animated cops.
We've only just finished watching trailers and clips for part one, and then...
Bad Robot repeat offender Michael Emerson has provided the voice of The Joker for the upcoming second part of the Dark Knight Returns animated adaptation. TV Guide were good enough to provide this quote from Emerson, talking about the appeal of the clown prince of crime: He’s one of those great villains that an actor […]
As well as showing off the CG-fuelled car animation, this first clip from the animated version of The Dark Knight Returns takes us to what I’d imagine is the most widely seen image of Frank Miller’s original. Doesn’t look too bad, does it?
