THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN #4

IMG_0594

In issue #4, Miller’s thesis finally makes sense.  He’s playing with the Superman-as-God concept, and trying to tell the story of how a God who won’t accept that he’s a God must embrace his power over humanity, and paralleling it with the story of a human (Batman) who refused to accept that he’s a human, so he keeps boxing with God.

When I re-read this final issue I felt sad that these books weren’t better.  They really could have been something great.  But overall, they don’t really tell a story all that different from the one in Dark Knight Returns.

Next: Batman Year One.
