Incoming: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN BATMAN NOIR

Image © DC Entertainment. Written and illustrated by Frank Miller.

This is a new black and white edition of the sequel to Miller’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT from 2001-2002. The original was colored by Lynn Varley, I lettered it by hand (one of the last DC projects for that, I think). It was not the ringing success of the first one, but it certainly has its moments. I believe it goes on sale March 28. The book is a little larger than the first printing, and without color, Frank’s every line is in the spotlight. If you’re a Miller fan, you’ll enjoy that, as I did.

One thought on “Incoming: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN BATMAN NOIR

    Unlike many people I know, I actually loved Frank Miller’s artwork on the Dark Knight sequel. His line work really evolved nicely since the first series.

    Unfortunately, I really, really disliked the story. It just seemed like very undisciplined, scattershot satire. And as much as I liked Lynn Varley’s coloring on the first Dark Knight, she seemed to embrace too many Photoshop coloring effects in the sequel that makes it look quite dated 15 or so years later. I’m kind of curious as to whether is works better in straight black-and-white.
