This box set collects trade paperback volumes of The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Hush and Batman: The Court of Owls. Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns was hailed as a groundbreaking moment in comic storytelling. The Dark Knight Returns opens ten years after an aging Batman has retired and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now as his city needs him most, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of glory. Facing off against his two greatest enemies, the Joker and Two-Face for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one of them will survive. This collection is considered a comics masterpiece and was responsible for the launch of the Batman movies. Batman: Hush is a thrilling mystery of action, intrigue, and deception penned by Jeph Loeb (Batman: The Long Halloween) and illustrated by comics superstar Jim Lee (Justice League, Superman: Unchained) in which Batman sets out to discover the identity of a mysterious mastermind using the Joker, Riddler, Ra's al Ghul and the Dark Knight's other enemies - and allies - as pawns in a plan to wreak havoc. Following his ground-breaking, critically acclaimed run on Detective Comics, writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire, Swamp Thing, The Wake) alongside artist Greg Capullo (Spawn) begins a new era of The Dark Knight as with the relaunch of Batman, as a part of DC Comics--The New 52!

As the Caped Crusader begins to unravel this deadly mystery, he discovers a conspiracy going back to his youth and beyond to the origins of the city he's sworn to protect.

Or is Bruce Wayne losing his grip on sanity and falling prey to the pressures of his war on crime?Batman: The Dark Knight Returns collects issues #1-4 of the original miniseries.

Ed Piskor - 2014
As if that’s not enough, in addition to the two books and the slipcase itself, Piskor has drawn a 24-page comic book — Hip Hop Family Tree #300 — specifically for this boxed set that elegantly reflects the confluence of hip hop and comics, which was never more apparent in the early 1990s than with the famous Spike Lee-directed Levi Jeans commercial starring Rob Liefeld, who went on to create Youngblood and co-found Image Comics, not to mention ending up on the radar of gangster rapper Eazy E.
