Frank Miller working on Dark Knight sequel 

Well, here’s some news I didn’t see coming. Frank Miller is writing the third part in his Dark Knight trilogy.

Titled ‘The Dark Knight III:The master race, the story will pick up where the 1986 story ‘The Dark Knight strikes back’ left off. The Dark Knight returns is hailed as the bible to Batman fans, year strikes back was less well received. 

Miller will be joined by DC writer Brian Azzarello (Batman: Flashpoint, Wonder Woman). The story will span eight issues. It will be published twice a month, from this autumn. 

Miller said:

“Batman remains my favourite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting, but we’ll do our best.” 

I’m excited by this news, I hope that Miller can rekindle the magic he had with the Dark Knight Returns.
