Miller, Azzarello, and Romita To Release ‘Dark Knight’ Prequel

In addition to the upcoming release of Dark Knight III: The Master RaceFrank Miller, Brian Azzarello, and John Romita Jr. will be releasing a prequel to the original Dark Knight Returns titled The Last Crusade. The story, set to be released as a 64-page prestige one-shot in February of next year, will reveal the fate of Jason Todd at the hands of the Joker in the ‘Dark Knight Universe,’ an event only alluded to in the original 1986 miniseries. Speaking with DC, Romita said that he is excited to work with Miller again, and that he will strive to strike a balance between staying true to the original work while adding in his own artistic voice to the growing ‘Dark Knight Universe.’
