The Dark Knight Returns With The Ultimate Statue
Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns is a landmark graphic novel and has had a profound effect on the development of the Batman mythos and character in the thirty years since its release in 1986. So it’s only fitting that such an iconic graphic novel receive an equally impressive statue. It’s not cheap, but Prime 1 Studio’s The Dark Knight Returns Batman statue is pretty stunning.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Batman, after 10 years in retirement, is forced to return to action as Gotham descends further and further into violence. And to keep pace with the new generation of criminals, Batman employs increasingly more violent methods.
