New Dark Knight Returns Sequel Stars Superman's Children

Legendary creator Frank Miller is revisiting his Dark Knight Returns universe once again. DC Comics announced a new sequel called Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child.

The Golden Child is a direct followup to The Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Set three years after the events of that series, The Golden Child focuses on former Robin, Carrie Kelley, in her new role as Batwoman, as well as the two children of Superman, Lara and Jonathan Kent. Together, these three heroes will confront an old evil that once again threatens Gotham City. Jonathan is the titular Golden Child, a hero with incredible mental powers despite his young age.

Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child will be published as a single 48-page comic under DC’s Black Label imprint. Miller is writing the story, with Rafael Grampá (Mesmo Delivery) returning to comics for the first time in over half a decade to draw the issue. Jordie Bellaire (Batman) is coloring the issue. In addition to Grampá’s standard cover, DC will also offer variant covers by Miller, Paul Pope, Joëlle Jones and Andy Kubert.
