Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #4 Page 31 Original Art (DC, 1986). From the famed series that redefined the Batman franchise for the modern audience, here is an action-packed page from the dramatic conclusion to the series spotlighting Batman and his vigilante allies as they rain down their furious justice from on horseback. It's universally acknowledged as one of the most important story arcs in modern comics. In addition to the incredible, sprawling top panel featuring the Dark Knight in dynamic action, this page also features splendid portraits of Commissioner Gordon and Robin (Carrie Kelly) and is one of the rare interior pages to present a self-contained narrative that encapsulates major themes from the entire series - it's certainly is one of the most impressive pages that we've offered and with Batman in full-on action, it would be tough to find a finer example. This modern masterwork has an image area of 11.5" x 11.75". Aside from the typical four tape residue stains in the borders, the art is in Excellent condition.

Miller, Frank:Frank Miller (American, b. 1957): is a multi-talented cartoonist, writer, and film director, most celebrated for his work on the Marvel characters Daredevil, Elektra, and Wolverine, as well as on his own characters for the Dark Horse titles Hard Boiled, 300, and Sin City. In the late eighties, Miler became the first and foremost of a new breed of "noir" comic book storytellers, thanks to the tremendous popularity of his work on the industry-changing Batman: The Dark Knight Returns series. He also directed the film version of Will Eisner's The Spirit, and shared directing duties with Robert Rodriguez on Sin City, and produced the film 300. .
