It's not THAT bad.. - trout_player
At some point, after having zero interest in reading this, after my fourth or fifth time reading DKR, I realized that I wanted to see where Miller would take these characters 10 plus years later, so around Christmas time of 2005, I was given a twenty dollar bill that I'd end up spending on The Dark Knight Strikes Again, I've since read it twice now and it's certainly not as bad as I was led to believe. It absolutely cannot hold a fuckin' candle to The Dark Knight Returns but as a whacky P.S to that story, it works well. It's not gritty, it's style and tone don't resemble DKR in the least but as an all encompassing DC story, it's not bad. Miller throws in a lot of JLA characters and a weird Dick Grayson/Joker/Superman and Wonder Woman's child/Lex Luthor/Thanagarian story that makes you scratch your head as to what the hell this has to do with Batman. If dropping acid is what this comic feels like, I think I'll stay away. 3 stars.
