“Verified Purchase

I’ve given this comic a hard time in my life.

Fanboy/girl love for a comic that I always believed to be overhyped.

I remember reading this when I was young, it was a dark contrast to Adam West and Batman ‘66 that I dearly loved.

I still love Adam West’s version of Batman, and after all these years I’ve made peace with Frank Millers Dark Knight Returns comic.

I still think this comic is overhyped, but after recently re-reading and updating an older copy, I’ve found some love in my heart for this version of Batman.

Well, the art for me.. it’s not my taste.

I’m a Jim Lee guy, Lee Bermejo, Greg Capullo and Brian Bollard kinda fella.

I’m not saying it’s awful just not my taste.read more
