DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE - Klaus Janson With book one of DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE, already being heralded by fans and the media alike, the next highly anticipated installment in the series is getting ready to arrive in stores on December the 23rd. Before then, however, how would you like to meet the makers behind this star-studded project? Yeah. I'm not pulling your cowl, bat-fans. If like me, you also got a right kick out of seeing Wonder Woman, Commissioner Whats-Her-Face, and, coff-coff, Bat... ahum... 'man' in DK3, then why not pay Frank, Brian, Klaus, and Andy a little visit, this December in downtown Midtown Comics, New York, New York.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race

DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE - Dave GibbonsAmong the anticipated thousands of fans expected to attend, I'm afraid to say only 125 people will have the unique opportunity to not only meet this all-star roster of talent, but have items (2 to 3) autographed by the team, including their copy of DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE. Fans can get more details for the lottery registration at the Midtown Comics blog or twitter pages.

As part of a custom retailer variant cover program for Book 1 of DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE, exclusive variant covers drawn by Marc Silvestri and Greg Capullo are still available at all Midtown Comic locations. Midtown will also carry a special prestige format Collector’s Edition hardcover of Book 1 for $12.99. Each hardcover will be available in stores approximately two weeks after the periodical, with the final issue (number 8) shipping with a special slipcase designed to contain the full series, with wraparound art from veteran artist and fan-favorite, Jim Lee

So to reiterate...

WHAT: The legendary team behind DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE, including Frank Miller (Co-Writer), Brian Azzarello (The Other Co-Writer), Andy Kubert (Artist), and Klaus Janson (Inker) will be attending a autographing session held at Midtown Comics. Only 125 lucky fans will be allowed to see them.

WHERE: Midtown Comics Downtown, 64 Fulton Street, New York, NY 10038

WHEN: Saturday December the 19th, 2015, between 4pm and 6pm

Another thing I'd like to share with you today are my opinions on the first issue. To me, DK3 is one of those projects that I was a bit wary of when I first heard about it's announcement. 'Oh dear! Franks going back to the well again?', I exclaimed to myself in a Scottish accent, (Please Note: I'm not Scottish) 'Och-Ei-Ma-Nuuu! Why in Robert De Niro's good name will he want to delve down that particular rabbit whole, especially after his day-glow offerings with DK2'!

Yet thankfully, after reading it last week, I found out I was too presumptuous with my initial presumption. Do you want to know why? It's because this time round, as opposed to the second mini-series, the Dark Knight Universe is having a helping hand from such fine creators as Brian Azzarello (who's no slouch at composing voice over narration), Andy Kubert (another amazing artist that can vary his style to suit any type of situation, and I do mean any), plus Klaus Janson (gallant inker who started with Frank on the original).

What's more,  I'm also starting to understand the reasons behind it's tagline too: The Master Race. Maybe this insinuated race will comprise of a mixture of Kryptonians, Amazonians, and quite possibly, touch wood, fingers crossed, certain members of the Gotham City populous, fighting among themselves for the right to be rulers of the world? And if that's the case, could it have anything to do with coff-coff being disguised as burp and fighting the at-chooo?  Or could this have something to do with Bruce's final fate at the end of Dark Knight 2, and, dare I say it, Alfred at the end of DK1?

Wait a minute! I just thought of something. Has anyone seen Alfred lately? Maybe he's in the bath..
