Synopsis:
The Dark Knight Returns:
This is the tale of a tortured hero's twilight and his efforts to save the city he had once sworn to protect from spiralling relentlessly into chaos. Batman's struggles with a new breed of criminal, the training of a new Robin, and his fateful final encounters with Superman, Two-Face and The Joker, are all woven together seamlessly to mark a warrior's mythic rite of passage.

The Dark Knight Strikes Again:
Three years after the events of The Dark Knight Returns, America has — beneath the glossy surface — become an even worse place to live. The President is a corporate puppet, and even Superman is little more than a soldier fighting to protect the status quo. But Batman has emerged from the shadows once again to fight crime and corruption, bringing with him an army of forgotten heroes!
