    DC ENTERTAINMENT PROVIDES NEW DETAILS FOR
    DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE


    Icons Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson to Provide Art for Final Chapter of Dark Knight Trilogy, Book to Include Bonus Comic With A Host of Special Guest Artists
    SAN DIEGO, CA (July 9, 2015) - DC Entertainment began Comic-Con International: San Diego 2015 with a blockbuster announcement, revealing today that artists Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson will be joining living-legend Batman writer and artist Frank Miller and acclaimed writer Brian Azzarello in bringing the final chapter of the celebrated THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS saga to life.

    “THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE” is the epic conclusion to Miller’s 1986 classic THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS trilogy – heralded by TIME Magazine as one of the 10 greatest graphic novels of all time – and its 2001-2002 follow-up series BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN.

    THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE will be an eight-issue, comic book periodical, to be published monthly under the DC Comics imprint. Within each 32 page periodical there will be a special 16 page “Dark Knight Universe” comic affixed in the center. Each "Dark Knight Universe" comic will feature a rotating cast of special guest artists and characters.

    “We went into this knowing that we had to give fans more,” said Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, Co-Publishers for DC Entertainment. “We’re pulling out all the stops to deliver an amazing conclusion to this exciting body of work. We hope it inspires the next generation of writers and artists, the way it has already inspired us.”

    According to Kubert, "Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello have crafted such an incredible story for DKIII, as I am truly honored to be associated with them, this project, and Klaus Janson. We, along with the fans, are in for a great ride!”

    "Any opportunity to work with Frank Miller is a happy occasion for me,” said Janson. “When we add the talents of Brian Azzarello and Andy Kubert to the mix, we have the ingredients to achieve something truly memorable. This will be amazing!"

    Marking the 30th anniversary of THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS original series, this periodical is slated for publication beginning in late Fall 2015.

    I was reading about this in the new Previews last night, DC will be publishing this in one format that will include a mini comic inside the regular size issue and then after each issue they will release it in a single regular size comic that collects both in the same size, not to mention all the variant covers for all this...plus a slip case that will hold all 8 issues.

    I'll keep it simple and skip the whole fucking thing.

    The series is getting the cover spot on this year's NYCC program.

    There's also going to be a panel for this on the Fri. that I will be there. Hmmm...

    Miller's cover for The Atom #1, a mini comic that's being bundled with the first issue.

    The whole release strategy behind this is souring me on it. I'll wait until it's over and a collected edition is available and if I haven't forgotten about it by that point, THEN I'll read it but I'm not doing the variant of a variant of a slipercover of a bundled mini-comic thing.

    I'm not a big comic guy, but I loved DKR....and hated DKSA. I'll probably check this one out when it hits TPB
