    Did any of my fellow comic-book geeks buy this "sequel" to Frank Miller's excellent "The Dark Night Returns" series? The ball was dropped on this one. If you were able to enjoy it in your own way, more power to you. I'll sum this up like this:
    1st Issue: Pretty damn good with a good set-up for what was to come.
    2nd Issue: Ok, FM lost me a little bit, but everything will tie in together and FM will have pulled a great one on us.
    3rd Issue (six months after #2 came out): Ok, FM did pull a great one on us, but not in a favorable way. The entire three parts are way too disjointed and have turned into more of a satire than a Batman story.
    Frank Miller was paid $1,000,000 for this and I think he decided to do a "goof" on all of the fans just to spite a "big name" comic book company.
    Each issue was $7.99 with rushed art, crappy coloring, and corny dialog. The finale of the book is the biggest, thrown-together, bullshit I've seen in a long time.
    Don't bother with this one!
