Batman: The Dark Knight #1 - Frank Miller art & cover

Frank Miller
Batman: The Dark Knight (The Dark Knight Returns) v1 #1, 1986 - After his phenomenal run on Daredevil, Frank Miller produces his second title for DC Comics. Batman: The Dark Knight would become his masterpiece, garnering record sales and worldwide acclaim. His minimal yet compelling cover leads into a tale of the near future, where an older Batman renews his war on crime. Visceral and exciting, Miller's drawings toggle from linework to graphic shapes, all housed within precisely paced and designed layouts. Within the forty-plus page issue, two breathtaking splash portraits of the Batman are strategically placed. With this series, Miller makes his indelible mark on the character. This is number 1 of 4 Batman: The Dark Knight issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Batman: The Dark Knight issues. See also this blog's Frank Miller checklist.
