Comic Book Review: Dark Knight III: The Master Race #9


Yeah, so Dark Knight III: The Master Race comes to its conclusion with issue #9 of the mini-series. To say the whole experience was a whirlwind of emotional ups and downs for me would be an understatement. There were a few moments I'll admit I enjoyed among the rather tired and exhausting storyline. Lazarus Pits? Aliens trying to take over the world? Come on. I expect something way more fresh and exciting coming from the minds of Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello.


This is Earth’s last stand. Quar’s Kryptonian Army has conquered the planet, but Batman and his allies don’t believe the world is beyond saving. They’ll rally once more against Quar and save the world or die trying in Dark Knight III: The Master Race #9.


One thing that never faltered was the excellent artwork which did a great job of capturing the look and feel of The Dark Knight Returns and provided a sense of continuity between this and the previous two entries in the saga. Andy Kubert did a wonderful job blending his style with that of Frank Miller's to give the series a familiar, yet unique flavor.


Dark Knight Universe Presents: Action Comics #1 gives us a look at each of the major players in Dark Knight III and what they bring to the table as superheroes fighting for our world.
