Written as a sequel to the groundbreaking BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, this masterful hardcover takes place three years after Batman's defeat of Superman. Faking his own death and creating an underworld civilization, Bruce Wayne has been keeping his eye on the world above. As that false Camelot reaches its breaking point, it's is up to the Dark Knight to emerge from the underground shadows and once again return order to chaos.

This has been released in both hardcover and trade paperback, with multiple printings.
