"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
About the Author
Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s and rose to fame while first drawing, and then writing, Daredevil for Marvel Comics. He was also the creative force behind BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, BATMAN: YEAR ONE and BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN. His many works have not only redefined classic characters, but also, on a few occasions, revitalized the comics industry. His multi-award-winning graphic novel 300 was brought to full-blooded life in the 2007 motion picture of the same name, and in 2008 he directed the feature film Will Eisner's The Spirit. His creator-owned crime saga Sin City first hit the page in 1991, and then the silver screen in 2005, with Miller on board as co-director with Robert Rodriguez. The two returned to direct the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, released in 2014 and featuring two new stories by Miller. In 2015, Miller's returned to his best-selling series with the highly anticipated DARK KNIGHT III: MASTER RACE.

The drawing is not my favorite style, which doesn't mean it's bad. On the contrary - the characters feel well shaped and like real humans. The action scenes with the big machines give sense of volume and scale.
This is a must read indeed.
I just want to say that if you want the book for the story, and don't mind about the artwork, then by all means buy this. It's perfectly readable and most of the problems aren't really that big a deal unless you're a nut like me. Maybe I'm holding it to too high of standards. Then again, Frank Millers work was one of the reasons why comics started to be held to higher standards back in the 80s (there are some interesting articles online about his role in getting comics produced with better printing methods). So if you want to get this book, don't feel guilty. It's great and I'm sure you'll like it. But if you are one who is anal about artistic integrity, then i would suggest looking for an older copy if you can find one for a good price.
The story is still powerful with amazing artwork.
The first book of the four in the graphic novel still gives me chills when the Batman returns in full force after being retired for decades.
If you have never read this graphic novel, do yourself a favor and spend an evening in a dark room and let yourself fall into Frank Miller's visionary tale of Batman's elder years.
