Already pre-ordered the regular Kubert cover because frankly it's the best I've seen from the bunch, but this isn't bad.

Ah, Batman using his Robin as a meat shield, putting her in harms way.

Why am I not surprised?

Good point, if we never saw it coming how could we demand it? Silly marketing people!

If this is the 1:500 Variant, I'm gonna pass. Not gonna be worth the ridiculous prices they'll charge. Honestly between this and the Titans Hunt variant, I think they looked rushed compared to Lee's previous covers.

If this cover was released even unfinished I would still buy it. This one and the main Kubert cover are the best ones of the bunch.

All these variants seem to be promoting the very same consumerism TDKR was critical of.

still probably one of the worst titles of all time. I mean you have a known racist writing a book you might not want name your book after a core nazi concept. Holy terror sounds less racist than the master race.

@theocitylegend: I'm a Batman fan but I see this as pointless as The Dark Knight Returns should have been stand alone. The Dark Knight Strikes again was just vomit and this is just kicking a dead horse. We shall see if it's anything close to the The Dark Knight Returns as the second one wasn't and it in fact failed.

Because Jim Lee doesn't know how to draw fists.

@theocitylegend: no one has mastered drawing the Batman universe like Capullo. He is the definitive artist IMO.

Not that impressed. Plus Bruce's arms, legs and head don't seem very proportionate to each other.

Am I the the only one hoping to see Dick Grayson's joker again? I actually liked that concept of a robin gone bad.

It is the 1:500 Variant & it's up for pre-order on eBay UK for the ridiculous sum of £499.99!!!........I wouldn't pay that for the original art.

What's the problem guy ? A little racism is OK , just look at the terrorist feces in the Black lives matter movement . Those hypocrites scream pigs in a blanket and are applauded for it . Frank Miller will be okay without your approval.
