Inked Books: the Graphic Novel Book Club will discuss Batman: the Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller. Inked Books is a drop-in graphic novel discussion group, which meets on the second Wednesday of the month. All are welcome.

A tour de force of powerful storytelling and intense characterization, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is the tale of a tortured man's effort to save a city spiraling into chaos. An aging, time-worn Batman struggles with the acceptance of a new Robin while facing the latest generation of vicious, hyper-violent criminals. Old foes like the Joker and Two-Face add to the maddening mayhem which Batman must face and somehow conquer. Even Batman's relationship with his friend and ally Superman takes a fresh and inventive turn that would have been unthinkable outside of Frank Miller's richly imagined vision of the Dark Knight's future.
