This past Friday, DC Comics announced Frank Miller’s return to the Dark Knight Returns brand name, in honor of the 30th anniversary of the original title. Miller will be joined by Brian Azzarello, writer of Joker, Wonder Woman, and others. This third entry, following the much-maligned Dark Knight Strikes Again, is stunningly titled Dark Knight: the Master Race Women Write About Comics reacts:

Unfortunately, it’s difficult even to say, “Frank Miller/Brian Azzarello/DC Comics, we expected better of you.” Miller has been ridiculed often for his limited sensitivity to modern issues, and while Dark Knight Returns occupies a place on my bookshelf and in my heart, I distinctly remember rage-quitting All-Star Batman and Robin after issue #3. While only the writers have been announced, Miller has written himself into a corner: it’s impossible to be optimistic about this title.

Megan Purdy:

Yes, it is. My reaction can be best summed up by Sin City brawler, Marv:

It me. Frank Miller, on the other hand, is becoming a Frank Miller character, and not one of the good guys.

Catie Coleman:

Oh my GOD.

Frank Miller and DC have truly reached self-parody levels. To which, my only reaction can be:
