Few people have done more for the world of comics and graphic novels than Frank Miller. Frank has created such works as Sin City and 300 as well as massively popular characters like Elektra in the Daredevil series. Frank is best known, however, for his groundbreaking runs of Batman including The Dark Knight Returns, The Dark Knight Strikes Again and the massively popular Year One. Miller’s stern, noirish reimagining cemented Wayne, Batman, Gotham and the Joker into the bedrock of comic book greatness and the forefront of popular culture, setting the stage for the character’s cinematic legacy. Every artist who has followed in his footsteps still operates on the template he created, and the Batman he envisioned still casts his shadow over all who spend time in Gotham today.
It’s for these reasons and many more that we’re excited to announce that his latest Batman story, Batman:The Dark Knight: The Master Race is now available in OverDrive Marketplace. It’s been three years since the Batman defeated Lex Luthor and saved the world from tyranny. Three years since anyone has seen Gotham City’s guardian alive. Wonder Woman, Queen of the Amazons…Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern…Superman, the Man of Steel…all of the Dark Knight’s allies have retreated from the front lines of the war against injustice. But now a new war is beginning. An army of unimaginable power led by Superman’s own daughter is preparing to claim Earth as their new world.
