Dark Knight 3: Master Race – Variant Cover Extravaganza
On the 25th of November this year the Dark Knight will rise again to face down the impending peril of the master race. That’s right Batfans, superstar writer/artist Frank Miller returns to his opus The Dark Knight Returns saga this November with a third chapter; The Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Dark Knight 3 is being released as an eight issue mini series beginning in November, and each 32 page issue will also include a 16 page “Dark Knight Universe” comic attached within the centre.
Marking the 30th anniversary of the release of the pioneering original series, Miller will not only be joined once again by original collaborator Klaus Janson, but also legendary writer Brian Azzarello and exceedingly talented artist Andy Kubert.
To celebrate the first issue of Miller’s heralded return, DC will be releasing an astonishing thirty variant covers for the first issue. Each of these variants will be produced by some of the comic industry’s most talented and lauded artists including; Klaus Janson, Stanley Lau, Lee Bermejo, Jae Lee, and Kenneth Rocafort, plus Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons will be producing an even more exclusive 1:50 variant.
All of these amazing alternate covers will be made available at launch, though they will be in scant supply, check ahead with your local comic book emporium to make sure they are carrying your preferred cover, and remember to place your pre-order as these will be shifting faster than you can say “Batman rocks, and if you don’t accept my pre-order pronto then I shall be forced to dye my hair green, don a purple suit and smilex gas everyone in the room!.”
