Writer-artist Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns is a surprisingly nuanced, grim, an intricate graphic novel, on the same level as most modern fiction. it relates the story of Batman’s return to crimefighting after a decade of absences, despite his growing age and opposition from the new police commissioner. Batman must defeat a terrifying new gang called the Mutants as well as his old enemies, even as the police are hunting him down. Along the way, Miller shows the impact of superheroes like Batman on soceity, as well as the impact of the media that follows his every move. Indeed, the mass media coverage of both Batman’s exploits and a Cold-War-turned-hot scenario eerily forecast the world of today, though the tale was penned in 1986.
Miller also delves into the psychological realm, examining just what makes batman and some of his adversaries tick. Though this can become dry at times, it furthers the development of characters that, before this, were not very complicated at all. Those uninitiated in the batman mythos will only need a small amount of knowledge to delve into the truly spectacular tale that is The Dark Knight Returns.

This is a graphic novel. The book has three different stories happening that then in the end come together. One story is about the monkey king. The second story is about a boy named Jin Wang who is a second generation immigrant and is still influenced heavily by his Chinese culture. And the third story is about an American boy who has a Chinese cousin that visits every year. This book was so funny and entertaining. Coming from a Chinese family, I was able to relate to a lot of the things. It’s one of the best graphic novels I’ve read.
In this book Nancy and her friends are helping some local college students film a movie. One night the boys go missing in the woods. Nancy goes looking for them and ends up unraveling a mystery in the local mines. Although this series is different than the original Nancy Drew books, i still enjoyed it because it’s full of adventure and mystery.
In this book a professor finds a stone that proves the Chinese discovered America before Columbus. The stone then goes missing a long with a little boy, and Nancy gets on the case. I enjoyed this book because it’s full of mystery and adventure.
