Each to their own but I don't think Knightfall is anywhere near as good as Death and Return of Superman. The impact of Death and Return is a hell of a lot bigger than Knightfall.

You shouldn't expect a lot of detail and articulation from a little figurine sold with the Blu-ray from Best Buy. It's an improvement over the Batman figurine sold with Part 1.

Tbh though I'd prefer Kryptonite to be adapted more, that bit where Superman's stopping the volcano a d the Lava swallows him up is fantastic. Just imagine the moment he comes flying out if the volcano animated, it'd rock.

I've never heard of Kryptonite until now, its definitely on top my Amazon Wish List now. Looks awesome.

I thought the Superman with All-Star Superman and Red Hood with UTRD looked pretty good for such a small figure.

Really can't recommend it highly enough it's an amazing book. That Volcano scene is my favourite.

For some reason Joker sounds like he's in his 40s to me.

The Dark Knight Returns - Parts 1&2, back to back.

10/10, Perfection. Christopher Drake's score is absolute bliss, and will be a shame if it never gets a release. Now, onto The Killing Joke & Long Halloween

It's getting a release. Drake has been tweeting about it. WaterTower Music is releasing it, and they are mastering it now.

Funny how Year One is my favorite Batman book & TDKR is my favorite animated film.

Can't wait for the score! The carnival track is fantastic & chilling.

No, I'm not getting that. I already have this Joker action figure:


Yes, I'm very happy with Part 2. I enjoy it more than Part 1. I also enjoy that half of the Dark Knight Returns graphic novel more than the first half.

Oh really? I prefer the first half of the book myself but part 2 of the film was better.

That figurine you have looks great

I always preferred the second half with the Joker, Superman, Green Arrow, plus Batman on the run from the police, Superman diverting the bomb, Batman showing the Sons of the Batman the error of their ways, the black out, having to stop the rioters, etc. So much happening.

Yeah the first half of is very much a focus on Batman, its quite grounded and almost like theres no world outside gotham or at least a very different world whereas the second half us much grander in scale and really embraces the DC universe aspect.

Also I know this is cheeky but could you possibly take a pic from the front of that Superman figurine you have f you get chance.

The Superman figure was called DC The New Frontier Superman (2005) by DC Direct. The Lois Lane figure was sold in a box set called The Classic Silver Age Superman and Lois Lane (2006) by DC Direct. I prefer this Fleischer/George Reeves style Superman figure over the Silver Age Superman one.

Both parts were great! I know they took some liberties with the original story, but the animation and actions sequences between Bruce and Clark were amazing!
