DARKKNIGHTDARKKNIGHTDARKKNIGHTDARKKNIGHT

The Dark Knight comes out Thursday midnight in theaters across the nation. I am so excited I think I may wet myself. I am on my way to get tickets today and will be holding myself until they’re in my hands…

In the meantime, other Dark Knight nerds and I have been scouring the many resources (ie. the Internet) to find credible sources of information (ie. youtube)Β  and have found some pretty awesome stuff.

Thats not where my right knee cap is supposed to be…

This week I have done very little except for getting in my own way for academic success.

I finished the Frank Miller contribution to the DC series Batman, The Dark Knight, which I really loved. I have always liked Frank Millers works, Sin City and 300 being the most note-able and accessible trades, which is why I was not at all surprised about my quick interest in this trade. A dark perspective on the classic Batman series, set 20 years after his supposed retirement, complete with a new robin (a young teenage girl) and a new police commissioner (complete with the inherent political backlash).

I was recently informed The Dark Night movie has little to nothing to with the Frank Miller addition to the traditional DC comic Batman, and in fact is mostly based on a 5 part Batman cross over series War Games and marginally influenced by the actual comic, The Dark Knight. There are some major themes which are echoed in both the Frank Miller novel as well as the movie, but really, its a movie based on a DC comic book so major themes are few and far between. I have yet to have an opinion not having seen the movie, but now I am a little intrigued.

There is not decent segue to be found here so….

Webcomics!
