"Allstar Batman & Robin was a fun read. Batman abused Robin and was a cruel man. "
Batman:Year One;One of the greatest batman stories of all time and and one of Millers greatest works
Whatever you do... do NOT get DK2!! It's attrociously bad! Both story and art are awful. Frank Miller has done a lot of good stuff in the past. Unfortunately everything from the last 10-15 years... not so good.
Hush, Long Halloween, Dark Victory... those are worthy stories without the dodgy Miller art.

I think when it comes to All Star Batman and Robin you either love it, or hate it.
Not my cup of tea, which is fine.
Joker was fantastic, a work of art.
I loved dark knight returns and I also like All Star Batman quite a lot. But I see where your coming from with Frank Miller, he reminds me of George Lucas where he created something great and then spent the rest of his career tearing it down. As for The Dark Knight Strikes Again; The first two chapters were supurb but the last chapter is total crap and ruins the whole Batman and Robin team. Some great Batman books that I love are;
1. The Joker ( If you want a more of a movie style Joker with an extremly gritty take on all the characters.)
2. City of Crime
I love Hush, and have Absolute Long Halloween which is probably the greatest Harvey Dent Story ever written.
I'll probably check out Batman: Year One
I agree with babs. D
Hey what about Batman: Year One, Babs? Very enjoyable story.
Go check out Sin City if you want some good gritty Frank Miller stories.
All Star Batman and Robin I find enjoyable, only because I don't take it seriously at all, I laugh at every page of it, it's a fun read for me.
The Dark Knight Strikes Again is good, well I enjoyed it, some others wouldn't agree as much, interesting story, has alot of the other DCU characters in it, pretty good overall, kinda wierd/flashy art. Pick it up if you want the complete story.
If you can find, Batman: The Cult, is was written in like 1988 right before Jason was killed, imagine Dark Knight Returns with some Grant Morrison thrown into the mix, veyr enjoyable read, and one of the few (if not only) book that has Jason alive as Robin.
Hush is also a very good Batman story, also read The Long Halloween and Dark Victory by Jeph Loeb, has every villain (mostly) and focuses on a few that arent usely in the limelight
