DescriptionFrank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1 Joe Chill Murders Thomas and Martha Wayne Before Bruce Wayne's Eyes Page 15 Original Art (DC, 1986). Here's the heinous crime that the underworld of Gotham City would pay for over and over again. Bruce Wayne is traumatized, a mute witness to the senseless, savage slaying of his beloved parents, Thomas and Martha, under the gun of merciless mugger, Joe Chill. This horrifying moment unfolds with a sense-shattering slow motion precision, and Frank Miller masterfully stages the action in stop-action time, rivaling the peak period graphic inventions of Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman, and Bernard Krigstein. Make no mistake, nobody, but nobody, tops Miller at the gritty Crime Noir milieu. Here it is, the unforgivable murders that ignited Bruce Wayne's relentless war on the underworld, the key to the Dark Knight's origin. Easily among the most compelling panel pages from the series we have ever seen -- much less offered, this modern landmark has an image area of 10" x 16". Aside from four tape residue stains in the borders, the art is in Excellent condition.
