xx DKR and DKSA sequel - DK3: Master Race
« Thread started on: Apr 24th, 2015, 4:34pm »

Apparently, Frank Miller and Jim Lee--the team that brought us the wonderful All-Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder--are creating the third instalment of the Dark Knight Returns saga. I don't know for sure if Lee is on the project, but I read it second-hand. take it with a grain of salt.

If this was pre-ASBaRtBW, I would have been excited. Now, not so much. I don't look forward to the hate speech Miller brings, nor the poses-that-lack-storytelling that Jim Lee can only do.

Nope from me. Not reading it, not flipping through it, not even picking it up.

I think it very well may be safe to say that not only am i probably only person here that is going to buy this, but looking forward to it too. Love me some over the top Bats lol

It's being co written with Azzarello, and think he very well may be writing it from a Miller story as well, i don't think Miller is in best of health judging by this

Did the Batman vs. Al Queda ever happen? It was on-again, off-again for a while, then I think he took Batman completely out of it and shopped it.
Oh, and don't forget the sequel to All-Star. That was ... oh, also never happened. Perhaps if Azz is writing it from FM story / outline, *perhaps* it'll actually hit stores.

My appreciation of DKR has certainly grown over the years, but I've still never read Strikes Again. The art was ugly and I just never had the motivation, plus I only heard negative opinions on the book. I should probably read it through though.

Loved All Star Goddamned Batman, it was hilarious, not intentionally, clearly.

Holy Terror Batman was De-Batmanned into a book just called Holy Terror. I've not read it and I'm not sure of the reception it got. I'll look into it.

After the controversy of the Batgirl swearing issue which was Miller's clever little joke at knowing how to trick the printers into making (barely) visible swearing, DC have seemed keen to avoid continuing that series.

Last I heard Miller had written up to 24 issues before the book even started, and Jim Lee took full responsibility for major artwork delays. Clearly Lee has found time to do numerous other things in the years since, so I'm pretty sure it was tactically killed by DC Editorial.

I thought he was writing the third phase of his Batman saga, not the sequel to The Turner Diaries or The Morgenthau Plan (bonus: it's non-fiction).

I was hoping he could get a Thought Crime or two in on Bruce Jenner...but then it occurred to me that he had done it in Returns. From grand guignol pulp to SJW E! series; the only question is whether Miller was grotesque enough in his writing to capture our reality.

DKSA's comic booky excesses were as influential on the medium as the noirish psychodrama of DKR; whether or not it's any good, it's rather brilliant. Twice his Batman defined where the medium would go for a generation. Good or grotesque (personally, I'd like both), it will be interesting to see if he can do it again.

And Batman could definitely use a shakeup following the bland reign of terror of Didio/Johns/Snyder. Maybe the same way he needed one in the early 2000s, away from the shadows of DKR.

So, guys, any thoughts on Dark Knight III: The Master Race so far?

I just read #1-2 in one sitting and I like it, so far. It pretty much touches on the things I loved about the original Dark Knight Returns, so I feel it is playing it safe, although there are things happening that could set the stage for a really good (Miller) story.

I don't know where I read it, but it does kind of remind me of Star Wars: The Force Awakens; it really goes back to the original and uses what we loved about that one to make sure we love/recognize it. For me, that worked for Star Wars and also for DKIII. Some say it isn't original and reads like fan fiction without Miller's edge (I don't agree directly, it is too early to really tell), but, again: I like it.

I subscribed to the book twice; I'm getting it in its regular format and in the oversized hardcover version. I already have #1-2. When the series is concluded, I will receive a slipcase that can hold the eight oversized hardcovers.
