Description

    Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #3 Robin and a Disguised Batman Page 4 Original Art (DC, 1986). Carrie Kelly, the lovely lady Robin, is showcased at the bottom of this fantastic Frank Miller masterwork. As we've oft noted, no great comic book art collection could be considered complete without a masterwork from Frank Miller's renowned Batman epic. Universally acknowledged as one of the most important story arcs in modern comics, the layout and storytelling in this page confirm Frank Miller's place among the greatest visionaries the field has offered, on a par with such legends as Jack Kirby, Neal Adams, and Will Eisner. Though officially page 4, this is actually the third story page of issue #3, "Hunt the Dark Knight" (the first page in the book has just the story title). Here, the "old woman" in the shop is none other than Batman in an undercover disguise, while Robin takes a slingshot snipe at Bruno, the neo-Nazi tomboy punk with a buzz-cut. For the printed version of this page, three drawings were photostatted. They have since been removed to reveal the original art and are included with this lot on a separate sheet of paper. The image area is 12" x 18", and aside from some tape residue stains in the four borders (outside the image area), the art is in Excellent condition.
