Also can i ask, is the sequel Batman - The Dark Night Strikes Again as good as dark night returns?

No.  Nononononono.  Pass.


Anyone know of any other frank miller stuff worth getting? (other than sin city)  :)

Batman: Year One is pretty sweet.

He also did the 300 series, but I think the movie was actually better than the books.

Miller also did a load of work on Daredevil a long time ago and a short stint on Spiderman I think.

Is it simply Miller you're looking for or inspiration/something new to try?

While Frank Miller has a lot of classics under his belt, it's probably been a decade since I've read anything I liked.

Now Grant Morrison is a guy that shits gold.  I just added to my Netflix queue.  Looking forward to watching it at some point this decade.   :D

Good shout Neato!!

He is doing some stunning work atm for DC, had a really good run on Batman recently.
Geoff Johns is the same and doing a tonne of stuff including Green Lantern.

On Marvel my current favourite has to be Matt Fraction who is writing on Iron Man and Fear Itself.

O ... M ... G! ...



DC Comics Resets All 52 Titles

Starting this summer, the publisher will re-number its entire DC Universe of titles, revamping characters such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and others from its 76-year history for a more modern and diverse 21st century.

The first book to be released under this new era: Justice League No. 1, out Aug. 31. The series by writer Geoff Johns and artist Jim Lee reunites the famous lineup of Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman.

Johns promises a focus on the interpersonal relationships within DC's trademark superteam. "What's the human aspect behind all these costumes? That's what I wanted to explore," he says.


MORE: What's behind DC Comics' big change?

In September, an additional 51 first issues will make their debut, introducing stories that are grounded in each character's specific legend but also reflect today's real-world themes and events. Lee spearheaded the costumes' redesign to make characters more identifiable and accessible to comic fans new and old.

"We really want to inject new life in our characters and line," says Dan DiDio, co-publisher of DC with Lee. "This was a chance to start, not at the beginning, but at a point where our characters are younger and the stories are being told for today's audience."

In an even more important move in the competitive comics industry, DC is making all of the re-numbered titles available digitally via apps and a DC website the same day they arrive in comic shops. It marks the first time that a major comics publisher has done so with its popular superhero titles.

The company has come in second to Marvel every year since 2002 in market share, according to Diamond Comic Distributors.

While the two companies are making millions off movie adaptations of their comic books, print sales for both have dropped in recent years, as new technology gives readers many more options.

"We're allowing people who have never bought a comic book in their lives to download them on portable media devices and take a look," Lee says.

"Having the ability to give people access to these comics with one button click means we're going to get a lot of new readers."

This is going to be a massively mixed thing.

There is now real uncertainty about what this will do to the titles.

For example there is no guarantee the current lines and back work is being continued.
Also you won't have confirmation of writers on products too!

I'm looking forward to some things but really hoping they leave Batman alone.
A little worried the Green Lantern Reboot could play hell on things too :S

and all because of the reverse flash too.......

It sounds a good thing, giving a new generation a chance to learn all the lore. I reckon the older comic fans will be all up in arms though.

Like the Doctor Who and Star Trek thing i suppose, rebooting a franchise will always have it's older fanbase stook in rose tinted nostalgia, closed eyes and open mouths shouting about the good ol' days.

Monetary wise, buy the last issues of all the series, the last of anything is always expensive. Look at the last 2 Saturn games to be released (expensive)
