Booksplode strikes back with a vengeance as Paul Montgomery, Josh Flanagan and Jeff Reid dissect the Dadaist oddity that is Frank Miller and Lynn Varley's The Dark Knight Strikes Again. Published 15 years after the landmark mini-series The Dark Knight Returns, this three-issue sequel was a notorious departure in form and lucidity. We're not going to claim to understand it entirely, but one of us with glasses might hail it one of the best and most important works of all time. It's Josh. He kind of says that.
