Default Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part I Review

Been looking around and haven't spotted a thread for this yet. Feel free to point me in the right direction if I've missed it.

Anyhow, has anybody seen this yet? Translations like this can always be a little tricky, at least for me. I like to see it be faithful, but I also think when it's slavish to the source material it's almost tantamount to a motion comic.

That's basically how I felt about Year One, and I'm hesitant about this now. If it's just word for word exact dialogue with the same sequential narration and nothing added to it, I may pass. I understand it's kind of the point, but again, that's what motion comics are for...

"I don't give a **** what you say. If I go out there and miss game winners, and people say, 'Kobe choked, or Kobe is seven for whatever in pressure situations,' Well, **** you. Because I don't play for your ******* approval. I play for my own love and enjoyment of the game. And to win. That's what I play for."

"As of right now, I don't know what he do good, cause what may work on another fighter is not gonna work on me."
