30 years ago, Frank Miller set the tone for the modern take on Batman with The Dark Knight Returns. Now, Miller is revisiting his most iconic series alongside co-writer Brian Azzarello and artist Andy Kubert!
In Dark Knight III: The Master Race, Lara, the daughter of Superman and Wonder Woman, has unleashed Kryptonian religious fanatics from the bottle city of Kandor. Image a cult in which each man and woman had the powers of Superman himself. They are the master race, and they’ve already humbled the Man of Steel subjugated most of the world. Even the citizens of Gotham City have been coerced into doing their bidding. Now, Batman and his allies find themselves as the hunted in their own city!
For CraveOnline’s exclusive preview from Dark Knight III: The Master Race # 5, Batman attempts to save the Flash, but Barry Allen’s injuries may be too severe even for the fastest man alive. As for Carrie Kelley, she’s come face-to-face with Aquaman, and for once, even Carrie is awed by the sheer power on display by the king of Atlantis!
Here’s the solicitation text for this issue from DC Comics:
“Batman and Robin prepare for war with the Master Race, and an ally returns from an unlikely place…”
