    • Vomiting a mixer is about how I feel. I realized the fundamental problem with this comic is that it's not even about Batman. Seriously. Batman is barely even here. This is basically a JL/JLA/JLI/JL-whatever-else-you-can-think of comic. And this comic has nothing to do with The Dark Knight Returns except that Batman and Carrie Kelley are in it. Which makes me feel like smashing Frank Miller repeatedly in the face.Let's begin shall we? Like any Justice League comic there are a zillion characters. [...]

    • Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again is rightly reviled by all Batman fans because of how terrible the book is on every level but made doubly damning because Frank Miller wrote two of the most acclaimed Batman books - The Dark Knight Returns and Year One.The plot is a paranoid maniac's delight: the President of the United States is a hologram created by Lex Luthor and Brainiac who're essentially in control of America behind the scenes. Superman is still their lapdog because they hold Kandor, th [...]

    • I can't even begin to list all the things that went wrong with this. If there was ever a case to be made against making sequels, Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again would be the poster child. It just boggles the mind that the same creative team of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns did this one.Where DKR1 was tight and on the money, DKR2 is nothing short of a chaotic mess. There are so many other Superheroes populating DKR2 that it really doesn't feel anything at all like a Batman story. He comes [...]

    • OK, so I just finished re-reading the precursor to this, the rightly worshiped The Dark Knight Returns. (my review here)That was a masterpiece, and I'll just leave it at that.Well, for everything that book was; this one is NOT.Written 15 years after the original, yet only set 3 yrs after the events of that book, this feels forced, reactionary, chaotic (in a bad way) and is ugly in every way. Miller himself takes over the art, and I want to apologize to the artist of the original, because that wa [...]

    • A steaming, drizzling, stinking pile of poo so foul it is rumored that God himself may actually cut the lifespan of the universe in half just to rid all existence of the stench left behind by Miller's ass wipings known as B:TDKSA. Let me ask you a question -- What would be the stupidest storyline in the history of comics? A) Ultimate evil is defeated by ultimate good, B) Ultimate evil is defeated by a stronger evil, or C) Ultimate evil is defeated by people's interest in fashion and fashion acce [...]

    • This is a nice follow up to The Dark Knight Returns, save for the fact that the artwork and plot are regularly more obscure and bizarre than their brilliant predecessor. However, that said, Frank Miller remains a strong writer regardless and his ability to use Batman and the DC universe to talk about politics and craft, essentially, a beautiful dystopian novel is fantastic (and I mean that in all possible senses).It's three years after the previous novel and Batman has been presumed dead. Of cou [...]

    • The art is just so gosh darned mother-lovin ugly its hard to tell if the story was any good (not really, its not).

    • I seem to be among the majority who enjoyed the dark knight returns(bits of it). But When it comes to this book I agree with the majority, This book is a train wreck from beginning to end. First thing the art, it was nearly imposible to make out what was going on in this book. I'm not a fan of the art in the dark knight returns but here it's so bad I'm surprised some people don't get seizures because I nearly got it from reading this book.Second the story just doesn't hold up, it's just garbage. [...]

    • The story seemed to ramble without much cohesion. It's set in the future of DC - which is always awkward to do since none of the future-states collaborate with the current DC-world status. Many of the characters have their personalities altered, or rather, the personalities are filtered through Miller's assumption that everyone is neurotic and psychotic. The art is inconsistent, but mostly bad, although I do love Miller's style and his paneling, this book just feels rushed. Some pages are stunni [...]

    • Do yourself a favor and read Miller's Batman graphic novels as he re-creates a darker, more troubled Batman and a Gotham that parodies modern life at the same time it fulfills the definition of a crime-ridden cesspool Batman has to mop up. This one is set three years after The Dark Knight Returns. Batman is in his sixties, I think, and plots to take down the fascist, technological government of Lex Luthor with the digital president and Brainiac trying to take out Superman. Batman as traitor to A [...]

    • Frank Miller's long awaited sequel to his popular Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is possibly the worst comic I have ever read. Its a terrible sequel but that barely covers how terrible it is itself. Throughout Dark Knight Returns there was a commentary on events done by the media. This worked as both a satire of mass media, as well as providing plot exposition. It also was a small subplot that didn't take up too much space. In The Dark Knight Strikes Again the media satire takes up most of the [...]

    • "All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way" as Tolstoy famously said. Similarly, all great comics are great for what are, in the end, pretty similar reasons. Bad comics usually are bad for wildly different reasons. And then there's The Dark Knight Strikes Again, which breaks new ground in terrible. It is horrendous in ways that you have never seen before. It sets a new standard in awful; it's an original. It's the Don Quixote of failure, the Velvet Un [...]

    • Me parece justo empezar diciendo que yo jamás había leído un cómic. Éste es el primero. Por lo tanto, me parece muy difícil hacer una reseña. No estoy muy seguro qué es lo que debo calificar así que hablaré de lo relevante a muy grande rasgos. La historia: Sí, me gustó y bastante. Según entendí no sé vital para el universo DC pero me ha parecido muy atrapante.Aunque debo decir que de las 3 partes en que está dividido el cómic la tercera y última es más floja que las dos primer [...]

    • Frank Miller goes back to the well one more time, and pulls up a few good/interesting ideas buried in a typical late 1990s/early 2000s "Superheroes are gods that should rule us" story. Personally, I've never been a big fan of the genre, and this one is as ugly as it getsMiller's take on the Dixie Chicks, "The Superchix", i.e. singers who dress in non-existent superhero themed outfits, shows how thin a grasp he has on pop culture and how, by this book, he's basically just yelling "Get off my lawn [...]

    • Too much of this was silly social commentary, but getting to watch Robin (Dick Grayson) die again, but at the hands of Batman this time, was lots of fun to read.

    • Okay, firstly I want you all to know that I only signed up for this site to warn you that this graphic novel sucks so much ass it's ridiculous. I'll list, in step form, the many ways this book is horse shit (there will be swearing and there may be spoilers. You've been warned.1) The artwork is abysmal. I TDKR the artwork was bad, but in a cool way (I am in no way, taking away from the brilliance of The Dark Knight Returns, by the way). I've seen better art from a four year old. nothing is even, [...]

    • Re-Read, 2017Having purchased the third instalment of Frank Miller's Dark Knight trilogy, I felt to re-read this much critical reviled sequel to The Dark Knight Returns, given how much I disliked it the first time round. Gosh, the re-read was a chore as Miller as a writer is just trying to edgy for the sake of shock value, from the talking media heads reduced to naked women giving us the news, to a sex scene between Superman and Wonder Woman that literally shakes the earth; so irksome. The art, [...]

    • Page 1 : Three years after TDKR and a different world, oh boy oh boy ! Now I just gotta wait for Batman ? rubs hands in glee and grins maniacallyPage 5 : Superman has come and…and…why does he look so odd ? Where is Batman ? Page 10 :Umm….Batman ? This is supposed to be a Batman comic wasn’t it ? Why is Superman such a bozo here ? Who are all these naked women ?Page 20 : Who are all these people ? They look like something the Justice League threw up on the carpet ! Where’s Batman ? And [...]

    • This is just sad. If you enjoyed The Dark Knight Returns for it's dark, gritty, "real" look at masked vigilante-ism that is somewhat reminiscent of Watchmen, then you will want to stay the hell away from this book.I can't fully get into listing why this book is terrible, I'll just end up getting all disappointed again. So I'll just briefly touch on 3 things: 1)Art: I can understand if you want to change the style from the previous work (although I might not agree, loved the art on the first book [...]

    • This one is hard to grade. I liked some stuff in it, some moments and felt lost a lot of times. It's very inconsistent. I'll just tell you about the stuff I liked and leave you with that.I liked the breakout of the Atom and the breakout of the Flash.I liked the part where Batman was fighting Superman with the help of Green Arrow, the Flash and the Atom and says: "That's the problem with all those high and mighty powers. They made you cocky.  Over confident. You never learned to think strategica [...]

    • Not terrible, but not much new ground covered here. Miller re-hashes the themes of the original Dark Knight Returns: The powerful are corrupt and tyrnnical. The citizens are apathetic. Superman is a sellout. Only Batman has the strength of will to fight back. Superman gets another beating at the hands of Batman. This time Metropolis gets the heavy dose of carnage, tinged with 9-11 imagery. Batman faces down his "ultimate" nemesis. Much more disjointed than the original, the story jerks from one [...]

    • I hated the artwork. I loved the writing. Frank Miller continues his epic "Batman vs. World" story with all those long-forgotten heroes. Who has gone too far trying to die as a hero? And who has lived long enough to see himself become the villain? You'll only know when the Dark Knight strikes again!Ahmad EddeebOctober 2012

    • A bad moment of a great creator.Still there are memorable moments like the ones in the end, with Bruce and Lex, Carrie and Grayson.Overall a bad repetition of DK returns (if we assume there can be a good repetition of the magnificent DK returns)

    • No one should have been surprised that this was different from The Dark Knight Returns - Frank Miller had already told that story. If you wanted to read TDKR again, just re-read it. Miller had to tell a different story with this to be worth his time - even if many people didn't like the direction of his future world. There isn't much of a "story," here, though. It is an overload of contemporary media satire. TDKR balances story and satire well, but that balance feels lacking in this installment. [...]

    • I found this an interesting counterpoint to "The Dark Knight Returns." It is another take on Bruce Wayne as an old man in an R-rated take on the TC superheroes. In both, Superman has become a dupe of the powers that be, but in this one, the powers that be are actually DC characters, mostly villains, who have been allowed to really be ruthless in this story for adultsd so have taken over the world. Lex Luthor is in cahoots with the villain Brainiac, and between them they have taken over everythin [...]

    • Maybe it's because I like Dark Knight Returns so much, but I find this book nearly unreadable. It starts out bad and just gets worse.Spoiler alerts.In this book, Batman is pretty unlikable. He is set up as being a raving bigot for all things meta-human, which would actually work if it consistent with his actions throughout the story, but it's not. He surrounds himself with metas, and towards the end releases an entire population of Superman level metas on Earth. Speaking of Superman, the initial [...]

    • Okay. So I have heard horrible things about this book, people saying "don't read it!" So Why am i reading this book? Well there's a short answer to that, they announced Dark Knight Master Race, so i might as well read this. First off the artwork is absolutely fugly! Lex Luthor looks like kingpin, and Wonder Woman runs around in boxer shorts! haha! Frank Miller's art is usually pretty cool so I don't know what happened here? The Story is that the heroes are now divided, Heroes such as Superman, W [...]

    • My first thoughts when I opened this comic book were 'God, I hate the artwork! Awful coloring too!'. Being a graphic designer, I am superficial by profession and I must admit, artwork comes in first place when reading a comic book. After obsessing over it for about 15 minutes, I finally immersed myself in the story---and I have to say, I've never read a finer comic! I know people are saying it's worse than the 'brilliant' Dark Knight Returns, and are usually giving this comic book 'a hard time'. [...]
