Limited edition Darwyn Cooke cover. Only 2,500 copies made. The first DK was a reaction to the cold war insanity of the Reagan era, the second was a reaction to the grim and gritty phase that the industry went through,ushered in by the first DK, Watchmen, and other influential stories. The first installment of DK3 opens up with an overly aggressive Gotham P.D. attempting to assault a young black man running from them, until the Batman steps in. Miller and Azzarello clearly have something to say with this one, Batman Europa it is not. The art is great, a stylized blend of Kubert, Miller, and Mazzuchhelli. The mini-comic that's bound into the issue features art by Miller and the original DK inker Klaus Janson, looking as good together as they did in the 80's. This story was a huge part of the book, definitely not some throw away geegaw (i.e. black armbands, holograms, chromium, etc.) For those who see Miller as a raving conservative women-hater, the cast of the book may be a revelation. One might even say that it gives a whole new definition to the term "Batgirling". It's early yet, but the first issue indicates the start of something really good. Highly recommended. Read more
