    I was going to say the same thing. I think my problem was I didn't read it in its own time. At the time I suppose it was doing something that had never been done before. I read it later in the '90s after it had inspired a boatload of Batman-based Elseworlds tales. When I finally read TDKR it just seemed like yet another Elseworlds. Since it wasn't a shock to see Batman in another time or setting, I only had the story to go by. All I remember is Batman rolling around in a tank blowing people away and Superman being a super yes-man and fairly useless. I don't really like Miller's take on either character.

    Even later I read his Batman: Year One and liked it much better.

I was going to say just about the same thing that I thought it was okay for what it was just another alternate version of Batman. I remember not liking the art and finding it confusing at times.

I even got The Dark Knight Strikes Again or whatever the sequel was called but that was unreadable.

I really like Batman Year One.
