Default Re: Batman Beyond or Dark Knight Returns?

Beyond, I much prefer that as the future of Batman

It took me a while to realize this, Year one I instantly realized was a classic. however DKR was bitter at first, but on the second or third reading I realized its greatness. It keeps on rewarding repeat viewings.
Each to their own but I think Year One is by far the better book. I think the first half of Dark Knight Returns is brilliant but the second half is a strange mix. It worked better in the animation than the book IMO. The best future story ever in my opinion is Kingdom Come but that's because I'm more a Superman.

You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.
