    Love it or hate it, Frank Miller’s Dark Knight revitalized the Batman comics franchise and set the stage for everything that followed. I can’t wait!

      All Batman past present and future are measured by his work, for better or worse.

    The book gets its tone not only from the writing, but from the rough art. While I appreciated the iconic lighting-silhoutte image, the rest of it seems way too clean. I also thought that the opening shot of the cars driving down the street looked like crap. Too much computer-assisted corner-cutting.

      Well, it’s either that or have the bloody thing take 4-5 years to produce like a Studio Ghibli hand animated film. Which would you prefer. It would be nice if they were able to duplicate the raw style of Frank Miller’s art, but without chaining Frank Miller to an animation desk drawing nothing but cells for years on end, I don’t see how that would be possible. Speak of which, what the heck HAS Frank Miller been doing lately?
