    I'd drink a bunch of beer out of a Neal Adams Batman cup, no questions asked.

    That cup would go well with my Neal Adam’s Batman and Joker Chuck Taylors!

    A few years later to the party maybe but last night I read Dark Knight: The Last Crusade, the one shot that Miller, Romita Jr. and Azzarello did that serves as a prelude of sorts to The Dark Knight Returns. Anyway, I thought it was pretty decent. Would have preferred, for consistency's sake, to have had Miller at least do the pencils but I understand why that didn't happen and Romita's artwork is seriously impressive in this one, really great stuff. The story could have fleshed things out a bit more than it did but overall it does what it needs to do and that's to provide some insight into what happened to Bruce and Jason before the events in the DKR mini-series and it does it well.

    Wasn't DKR 2 hot garbage?

    It's been a while since I read it but I remember being disappointed in it. I should probably give it another shot but that would involve hauling heavy long boxes out of my closet and I've got enough to read right now.

    Grabbed the hardcover slipcase edition of The Dark Knight Returns the other day. I thought I had all 4 original issue but it turns out I didn't have issue 1, and buying a collected edition at this point is much cheaper than trying to track down an original of the first issue and this particular edition is really, really nice and the price dropped to $30 so I bite.

    Read the six issue Batman Jekyll And Hyde series from 2005. Paul Jenkins wrote it, Jae Lee drew it. It's pretty dark and occasionally twisted. A decent Two-Face story that offers a bit of info on why he is the way he is and compares his persona to Batman's in some interesting ways. Not an essential read, it starts stronger than it ends, but worth it at $1 a piece or if you can find it cheap.

    Going to check this out. I like Two-Face and there seems to be a lack of good Two-Face stories other than a brief run in Gotham P.D.
