Frank MiIler, Brian Azzarello, Scott Snyder Team Up For The Dark Knight III: The Master Race

At the DC Comics panel today at C2E2, there was a small announcement about Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight.

Miller would return to the Dark Knight series with help from Chicago’s Brian Azzarello and current Batman writer Scott Snyder for The Dark Knight III: The Master Race.

“Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting,” said Miller, “but we’ll do our best.”

“We are thrilled to have Frank back home at DC writing Batman,” according to Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, Co-Publishers for DC Entertainment. “The story he and Brian have crafted is an astounding and triumphant conclusion to this seminal body of work which influenced and shaped generations of readers and creators alike.”

According to Azzarello, “It’s been an amazing experience collaborating with Frank these past six months. I think we have an epic story that these characters truly deserve.”

Artists for the project have yet to be announced.

DC Comics plans for The Dark Knight III: The Master Race to come out twice monthly for eight issues and start in late fall 2015.
