Celebrating Batman Day, DC will have a fan signing event with Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello, Andy Kubert, and Klaus Janson.
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (1986) was a seminal work that changed the field of comics storytelling. That’s probably why DC has revisited that universe many times. The latest installment in The Dark Knight Universe—Batman: The Dark Knight III: The Master Race—sees Batman not fighting against Superman, but joining forces with him to stop a common deadly enemy.
The almost two-year nine-issue event reunited the team of Frank Miller and Klaus Janson with the addition of two other industry luminaries—artist Andy Kubert and writer Brian Azzarello. To celebrate Batman Day, DC will be a holding a special fan signing event with this creative team on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at Barnes & Noble Union Square. From DC Comics, here’s the official press release:
