DK2

What is wrong with this book? I just read it for the first time last night. I don't understand why people hate it so much. The only thing I didn't really dig was the ending. And how Bruce treated Dick, however before he gets out he does kinda show he still cares about The old boy wonder.

Donkey Kong 2?

Excuse me, what book are you referring to?

@gotwillpower: I think it's Dark Knight Strikes Again... I'm not sure though.

That would be it. It is a comic forum...I did sort of mention Bruce...Dick...Boy Wonder....Things that should be recognizable lol.

@RoboShark: It could be confused with Dark Knight Volume 2 (new52)... A run that has its fair share of haters.

As for the topic at hand, I don't believe it sucks but I think it is a definite step-down from DKR.

Yeah. I think DKR itself is a tad overrated. However I think it was the first thing I read along with Marvel zombies when I got back into comics in 09. So I have a special spot in my heart for it, and Frank Millers ugly mug.

@RoboShark: I think it's a little overrated too. I read it after seeing other people talking about it, and after all the praise it received, I felt underwhelmed.

I don't see what there is to like about The Dark Knight Strikes Again. The story is like DKR, but it's just a little too over the top for me, kind of making it unreadable (at least for me). I think my taste is--perhaps to a fault--mainstream-oriented.

I'm an over the top kinda guy. I also didn't mind Miller and Lee's All-Star Batman & Robin. Which I know lots of people do not like.
