    I just finished reading this and I thought it was awesome. In my opinion its easily one of the top 5 batman stories ever written. It seems like its really underrated and doesnt get the respect it deserves. It was real good

    I came out around 1988 and there were comparisons with Frank Miller's TDKR which was still fresh in people's minds, personally I liked it a lot and Bernie Wrightson's art is better than Miller's.

    It's basically a rip-off of the first two parts of TDKR, and that's the reason I like it.

    The "talking heads", Batman against a "street army" with a brutal leader, Batman being defeated, Batman finally beats the guy. A lot of psychology and politics.

    "The Cult" has always seemed to be a "spiritual sequel" to the TDKR, in my eyes.

    It's my fav batman graphic novel and yeah I know there's great ones
    but the villian was so creppy and batman lost and ran away In the book
    I think it's a great book
    I don't see anything In The Cult that's from The Dark Knight Returns
    except the simlar stuff you talked about,Doctor
