    Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #4 Final Page 47 Original Art (DC, 1986). From the famed series that redefined the Batman franchise for the modern audience, here is an incredibly important page -- the final page to the entire four-issue Dark Knight Returns saga. This legendary mini-series is undoubtedly one of the most influential comic books of the century. TDKR, along with the Watchmen, initiated a decade of dark-and-gritty imitators, none of which captured the raw power of the original. Dark Knight Returns pages have been commanding impressive prices in recent auctions -- and still, demand still far outstrips supply. Easily the most inspiring and uplifting page from the series we have ever seen -- much less offered -- this concluding scene, where Batman passes his crimefighting legacy to his personally trained "army," has an image area of 11.5" x 17.5". Aside from four tape residue stains in the borders, the art is in Excellent condition. Signed by Frank Miller in the lower right margin.
