Comic Book Review: Dark Knight III: The Master Race #6


Reading Dark Knight III: The Master Race really has been an emotional roller-coaster for me. One issue will totally grab me and then the very next will leave me feeling lukewarm about the whole thing. Issue #6 didn't really do anything to impress me or bump my opinion of the story so far one way or the other.


Neither the main tale of Dark Knight III: The Master Race #6 nor the bonus World's Finest #1 mini-comic tantalized me. I feel like we've seen all this before in countless other books. Andy Kubert's art is true to its predecessor and nice to look at. Unless Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello push the story in a different and more challenging direction very soon, I don't hold up much hope that Dark Knight III: The Master Race as a whole will stand the test of time or memory.


In Dark Knight III: The Master Race #6, Batman, a new Batgirl, and a resurrected Superman come together to end a reign of Kryptonian terror on the Earth. Unfortunately, the effects of a surprise attack on the alien race are wearing off and the army of supermen and women are regaining their strength.


The World's Finest #1 mini-comic focuses on the offspring of Superman and Wonder Woman, Lara Kent, coming to blows with Batgirl. The Amazonian warrior shows up just in time to put her daughter in her place.


Dark Knight III: The Master Race #6 is rated T+ for Teen Plus. It contains violence and gore, language, and frightening and intense scenes. There's really nothing here we don't see in your standard monthly titles.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #6 is available now in print and digital downloads.
