It’s a smart move to announce a new comic book series written by Frank Miller since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is heavily influenced by Th Dark Knight Returns. DC Entertainment announced the third and final part of The Dark Knight Returns. The new series written by Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello is going to be called: The Dark Knight III: The Master Race.
An artist has not been announced yet, but Brian Azzarello is a great addition to that team. In case you don’t know who Azzarello is, he wrote Joker, 100 Bullets, Wonder Woman, and Batman. Brian is a very talented writer. The Master Race will be published twice a month starting this fall.
Frank Miller stated,
“Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting, but we’ll do our best.”
Additional to this, Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, co-publishers of DC Entertainment said,
The story he and Brian have crafted is an astounding and triumphant conclusion to this seminal body of work which influenced and shaped generations of readers and creators alike.
Also, according to Brian Azzarello,
It’s been an amazing experience collaborating with Frank these past six months. I think we have an epic story that these characters truly deserve.
By the way, look at the ink sketch I did. Miller, I can be the artist, Miller.
All of this sounds good so far. The Dark Knight Strikes Again a comic book with the story of a Batman who develops a underground fighting force. In the series, also written by Miller, The Caped Crusader has to fight an overpowered and insane Dick Grayson. The story which hit shelves in 2002 also features Batman teaming up with other DC heroes to fight against Lex Luthor and Brainiac. The Dark Knight Strikes Again didn’t gained a lot of critical acclaim, making The Dark Knight Returns the best in the series.
