uh, fan-boys, frank isn't writting for comic readers now...he's writting for his hollywood cronies, who are so coked-up that they think DK2 is tip-top and top-notch and just plain fuckin' swell stuff...maybe even great...but then they are coked up! wake up frank thinks you are a bunch of stoogie-woogies for buying the hacked out tipe that is DK2

"I'll you smartasses what- let's wait a year or two before we decide what the value of this work is. We can all reconvene and see what impact the book has had, what the sales trends were, what kind of reaction it has had among other creators and most importantly, see who has followed its lead. That will be the true test of this work. I'm done arguing about it. It's really not that important. If Miller's "personal vision" is to write like Mickey Spillane on a crack binge and people like that, more power to you all."

By your standard, a comic must revolutionize the industry before it can be called "good."

Since the last book of that type appeared in the mid-80s (be it DK1, Watchmen, or Swamp Thing), you must REALLY be pissed off about EVERY comic over the past 15 years.

Your expectations for DK2 were ridiculously high.

It's a good book. Nothing more, nothing less.

What's brilliant? It's the same old shtick repeated ad nauseaum. Some big gorilla in a trench coat suffers cartoonishly extreme abuse (Elmer Fudd come back! All is forgiven!) until rallying with ninja super-hookers to enact violent revenge. Lay a thick coating of wince enducing knock-off Mickey Spillane narrative and serve half-baked!

Repeat through each suceeding story line....

Ah, but he does draw rain at night quite nicely.

I just read DK2 and thought "This should be titled Dark JSA 2" Where the hell was batman? and why was there another planned attack on superman similar to that in the first dark knight story?
