The Dark Knight Returns
Gotham City is in chaos, prompting a weary Bruce Wayne to step out of the shadows. With a Batman (now 53 years old) once again operating in Gotham, old enemies appear. And former allies try to stop the Dark Knight at all costs.
Set in a world where history has been permanently altered by the existence of superheroes, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ monumental graphic novel Watchmen is one of the most influential and critically acclaimed comics of all time.
Following the sequence of two generations of masked vigilantes, from World War II to the height of the Cold War, this captivating tale unfolds from a simple murder and the mystery that surrounds it, escalating into an epic saga of power, corruption and the most important meaning of humanity.
The Killing Joke
Released once again from the confines of Arkham Asylum, Joker is out to prove his insane point of view. And he’ll be using Gotham’s top cop, Commissioner Jim Gordon, and his brilliant, beautiful daughter Barbara.
Now Batman must race to stop his archenemy before his reign of terror claims two of the Dark Knight’s closest ones. Can the cycle of bloodlust and insanity linking these two iconic foes finally be closed before it brings them to their fatal conclusion?
Batman: Year One
While the DC Universe “rebooted” its most important characters after Crisis on Infinite Earths, Frank Miller gave another blow of authority, now redefining the origin of Batman, a vigilante who begins his operations in a corrupted city.
Within the regular Batman series, Miller told us about Batman’s origins as a defender of Gotham City. In this work he portrays himself from the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne, under the gaze of his young son Bruce, to the first cases in which Batman participates, and the alliance he establishes with Lieutenant James Gordon.
all star superman
If there’s a story that exploits Superman’s humanity and greatest weakness (which isn’t kryptonite), it’s All-Star Superman. In January 2006 DC Comics presented an innovative and challenging project.
Winner of the Eisner Award (the equivalent of the Oscars in comics) for best new series, All Star Superman, a limited story of 12 chapters created by the Scottish creative duo Grant Morrison (in the script) and Frank Quitely (in the lines ) bring a brilliant new look to the Man of Steel mythology.
Special Mention – Batman: The Long Halloween
Writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale delivered between 1996 and 1997 a story that introduces us to Batman’s first year as the defender of Gotham City, where a mysterious assassin has entered the scene.
The plot takes place in a time when the dastardly criminals of the Dark Knight’s gallery of enemies are going from being criminals or mobsters to supervillains, with theatrical costumes and deadly artifacts.
Special Mention – Arkham Asylum: A Wise House Upon Wise Land
Grant Morrison joined forces with Dave McKean, one of the artists behind Sandman, to create a dark and intellectual tale. Which continues to be as current as ever
The lunatics have taken control of the asylum. And the Dark Knight descends into the heart of madness along with them in Batman: Arkham Asylum. One of the most successful graphic novels of all time.
