This week on The Bookshelf… Batman: The Dark Knight Returns!

I’ve started reading some more DC comic recently, so I picked up one of Frank Miller’s books. This book i son numerous “Best Graphic Novel” lists, so I thought I’d check it out. I wasn’t disappointed! There’s a reason why Frank Miller is such a big name in comics.

The story takes place 10 years after Bruce Wayne has hung up the cowl and stopped being The Batman. He decides to don the cowl once more and bring order back to Gotham City. Bruce battles crime despite his aging body and fights to make Gotham a safer place.

I found one really interesting thing while reading this though. I don’t know if it’s because of me doing the strip every week, but this story would work as a comic strip. Every 3-5 panels could easily be a strip, with minimal reorganizing.  Maybe its just me… Anyone else notice this?
