    Description

    Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #2 page 15 Original Art (DC, 1986). No story in the Batman mythos is more important than Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. Released in 1986, this story was responsible for the rejuvenation of Batman as a dark character and for the comics industry as a whole. The story's creator, 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. When pages from this yarn surface, they command a premium price, as can be seen by the world-record price for any piece of comic art, set by the splash in our last auction. This piece, spotlighting Batman and Robin (Carrie Kelly) from "The Dark Knight Triumphant" has an image area of 12" x 18". The second TV screen in panel nine is a photostat; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. Signed by Klaus Janson in the lower border.
