DC Comics Absolute Editions set the standard for the highest quality, most in-depth presentation of classic graphic novels. Each oversized volume is presented in a slipcase and includes unique additional material making each Absolute Edition a cornerstone of any serious comic collection.
On its publication in 1986, Frank Miller’s THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS changed the landscape of the graphic novel irrevocably. With its dark vision of Batman’s future and its stunning artwork, THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS set the world on fire. 15 years later, Miller’s sequel, THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN, further redefined the boundaries of the superhero genre.
Now, both of these comics masterpieces are collected in one giant-sized slipcase edition for the first time ever. Frank Miller has provided a new introduction, a new cover and new art for the slipcase. This edition is also filled with bonus material featuring an excerpt from Miller’s original plot for DARK KNIGHT RETURNS #4, sketchbook material and much more.

Comic-book publishers have grown expert at collecting individual issues of a title as graphic novels and later rereleasing those collections with hitherto unpublished sequences, further artwork, and other "bonus" material to entice buffs to purchase the same book twice and thrice. DC Comics brings the game to a new level with the Absolute series of oversized, slipcased, hardcover volumes of landmark titles. Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns (1986), in which a cantankerous Batman emerged from retirement to clean up a depraved Gotham City, revolutionized superhero comics by darkening the tone of the genre and paved the way for artists and writers to treat familiar characters more idiosyncratically. It made Miller a superstar in the comic-book firmament. Its 15-years-later follow-up, The Dark Knight Strikes Again, however, turned off fans with its cartoony visuals and loopy attitude. Absolute Dark Knight gathers both stories, Miller's early sketches for them and other artwork, pages from his original proposal for the series, and other addenda. Gordon Flagg
