Comic-Con News:  At the San Diego Comic-Con DC Comics revealed that Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson will provide the interior art for Dark Knight III: The Master Race, the epic final Dark Knight volume, which will be written by Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello.  The Dark Knight III project marks the return of Frank Miller to the saga of the aging caped crusader that debuted in the epic 1986 The Dark Knight Returns miniseries, which was collected into a graphic novel that is a perennial bestseller and finds its way on to most lists of “all-time-great graphic novels.” 

The previously-revealed (see “Frank Miller Returns to Batman”) Dark Knight III: The Master Race miniseries will debut sometime this fall, and all 8 issues will be 48 pages, with 32-pages of the Miller/Azzarello DK III saga and a different 16-page story from rotating teams of creators who will provide a variety of different takes on various characters from the Dark Knight Batman universe.

Since Klaus Janson inked the original 1986 miniseries (that was written and drawn by Miller, who did the same on the 2001 The Dark Knight Strikes Again), his inclusion in this recently revealed project makes perfect sense, and Andy Kubert has plenty of stored up “Bat-cred” from his work on Batman and Son, Batman: Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?, and Damian: Son of Batman.
