Recently, (like two hours ago) I re-read Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, and I have to say that after re-reading it I appreciate  the novel much more, and see why everyone likes it so much. I found out about the book from my Theater Arts teacher Mr. Rickettes, we were talking about Watchmen and I told him that Wizard magazine called it the greatest comic book of all time, and he says that he thinks The Dark Knight Returns is the greatest comic book. At the time (of course) I hadn’t heard of it, so I looked for it in the library and they had it. After reading it I didn’t really get why it was so amazing, so I read it again, still not seeing why it was so good. Possibly because at the time I was reading Watchmen and didn’t care much. So, yesterday after re-reading the other book for the fourth time I decided to re-read The Dark Knight Returns again. And like I said now that I pay more attention to it without thinking of Watchmen it was so much better, Miller really knows how to write Batman.

The book was released back in ’85 and ’86 as a monthly limited series, it ran four issues. And was written and drawn by Frank Miller. The book is very good and now I think I agree with my TA teacher, maybe The Dark Knight Returns is a little better than Watchmen. But then again I am thirteen and don’t “fully understand life” yet, so my opinion may just be invaild, oh well. Great book either way, go buy it.
