    I think the one that really sticks out for me is The Dark Knight Returns. I consider many Frank Miller stories of the 1980s to be some of my favorite comics of all time but this book at least as a story doesn't quite hold up for me. The art still blows me away to this day and there are some fantastic moments but I don't find it that enjoyable of a read. I can definitely see how groundbreaking it would have been in 1986 and I think part of the critical acclaim comes from that.


I'm with you on this one. I liked nothing about it except the art. It was basically "What if the Punisher wore a cape and cowl and was a billionaire?"
