Frank Miller Is Working on Another Sequel to The Dark Knight Returns    

DC Comics confirmed today that Frank Miller is returning to write a second and final sequel to his extraordinarily influential Batman series The Dark Knight Returns. The 1986 series, along with other graphic novels like Alan Moore’s Watchmen (from that same year), changed the way people think about comics.

The new series will be titled The Dark Knight III: The Master Race (a provocative title, to say the least, given Miller’s controversial political views), and will come out twice per month starting in late Fall 2015, according to a press release from DC. Miller’s first sequel series, The Dark Knight Strikes Again, was published in 2001. According to the press release, writer Brian Azzarello will also be working on the eight-issue series. Artists have not yet been announced.
