DC Comics Announces The Dark Knight III: The Master Race
The The Dark Knight III: The Master Race is the sequel to Miller’s 1986 classic The Dark Knight Returns – heralded as one of the greatest graphic novels of all time – and 2001-2002 saw the follow-up series Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again.
Miller will be joined by acclaimed writer Brian Azzarello on the eight-issue comic book periodical, to be published twice a month under the DC Comics imprint. Marking the 30th anniversary of The Dark Knight Returns original series, this periodical is slated for publication beginning in late Fall 2015.
In a release Miller said:
Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting, but we’ll do our best.
Azzarello added in the release:
It’s been an amazing experience collaborating with Frank these past six months. I think we have an epic story that these characters truly deserve.
Artists for the project have yet to be announced.
