    Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #2 Batman Page 6 Original Art (DC, 1986). Few stories in the Batman mythos are as important as Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. Comic book legend Frank Miller sought to create a fitting "end" for the character of Batman -- just as the Norse myths had their Ragnarok, so would Batman eventually meet his demise. Many consider it the greatest Batman story ever told. Released in 1986, this epic was responsible for the rejuvenation of Batman as a dark character, and for the comics industry as a whole. When pages from this saga surface, they always command a premium price -- as demonstrated by the TDKR #2 cover that we offered in August 2013 -- it hammered for the second-highest total ever for a lot in our comic art auctions -- close to a half-million dollars. This iconic silhouette Batman scene, from the very same issue, "The Dark Knight Triumphant," spotlights the timeless graphic appeal of the Cowled Crusader. It has an image area of 11.75" x 17.75", and it's in Excellent condition. Signed by inker Klaus Janson in its lower left margin corner.
