About the Comic

The Dark Knight Returns Figurine

Acclaimed to be among the most influential story arcs ever written in DC Comics, The Dark Knight Returns is thanks to the genius of writer and artist Frank Miller. The story narrates a dystopian reiteration of legend in his very own idiosyncratic style, and it became a critical success and landmark publication in the universe of DC Comics. The impact of The Dark Knight returns was further made dramatic thanks to the inking of Klaus Janson and coloring of Lynn Varley.

The Dark Knight Returns takes place outside of the continuity of the DC Universe, on Earth-31, but it is still partially faithful to the Batman mythos and story arc. On a much darker account, the story of The Dark Knight Returns begins with a retired Batman, who hung the cape as a result of the death of his sidekick Jason Todd aka Robin. However, a decade after the incident, Gotham City is overrun by crime and a violent gang called “Mutants”, and with the GCPD unsurprisingly overwhelmed by the chaos in the city, Bruce Wayne decides to don the cape yet again, only to uncover a series of conspiracies involving the government and military.

After a sequence of events, and at the peak of it all, he finds himself face to face against an old, powerful friend - Superman.

What makes these figurines different from the other comic cover figurines available in our collection is that instead of a full comic cover as the backdrop, these figurines feature multiple panels taken from the comic, and put together to form an asymmetrical backdrop. On top of that, the gilt variants also have colored backdrops as opposed to the other comic cover figurines that have a black & white background against the gilded variants.

As a last resort and an intended hostile solution, Superman is sent by the authorities to confront Batman and his crime fighting vigilantes, called the Sons of Batman. Knowing well that The Dark Knight does not stand a chance against him, Superman stands his ground, unwavering and facing his former ally, but also understanding that there is no amicable way to end the conflict.

The weaves on his suit and creases that follow the definitions of his muscles and pose are clearly visible on the figurine, thanks to the expert craftsmanship of the sculptors at Royal Selangor. With a firm expression on his face, Superman glares down at his former ally, the Batman.
