Hey, it’s another issue of Dark Knight III: The Master Race! Seems like the last one came out four months ago. Probably because it did come out four months ago! At this rate, this nine-issue monster should wrap up in time for Hillary Clinton’s second term in office. If our reptilian overlords want it that way, that is! I’ve said too much! Better to move on to the simple fun of a Batman comic book and check out the most recent issue of this sluggish series.
I will gladly eat my share of crow for having doubted this series, because I must say I am enjoying it quite a bit. One should put on their Frank Miller hat before reading, but once applied I think you'll find this is tonally in lockstep with Dark Knight Returns. The story itself is okay, perhaps not worth the cover price, but not an abominable rip-off either. And Kubert does a bang-up impression of Miller's artwork while he was in his prime. I still say you should check this out in trade if you just want to read a fun story, but that is more than I might have recommended when this was first announced.
