    Thanks for posting these panels. They look amazing!

    I'm so hungry to read the hell out of this comic!

    BTW I'm also looking forward to those other books DC have signed Miller on for ... I know one of them is a OGN focused on Carrie Kelly ... I suspect one will be Dark Knight 4 ... and I hope one of the other ones will be that World War 2 project with DC heroes he's mentioned once or twice previously ... that would be badass

    I have heard that the book is set in 1940s/50s. What benefit can be there in setting it at such a time? I am curious.

    Where did you hear this? I wondered if it might be for two reasons-- First, we know Miller really like Golden Age era, low-powered/rough'n'tumble Superman/heroes in general. And second, in those sneak peak pages, little Clark's got a slingshot in his back pocket.

    Yes, because Mazz doesn't draw like that anymore.

    I thought that was common knowledge from the beginning. I looked up online and here's a link. This year one style story is set during second world war.

    These people need editors. fank-miller. And that story where Superman was crated. Wonder how he got out of that?

    I love the idea that this is more or less the original Superman being set in the 1940s. Then again, the timing is such that this could be the same Suoerman who appears in DKR.

    I do love Miller's explanation, that DKR was simply all from Batman's point of view.

    Yep. There are so many errors that one can doubt whether its a genuine article. Or a third grader wrote that article.

    I think that just might be the idea. I really don't see any reason in setting the story in 1950s. Dark Knight Returns connection just might be what he is thinking. I would have preferred if he wrote his Superman now. Grant Morrison kind of did that in his Action run. There has to be some reason why it is in those times which goes beyond simply the setting. On reading it we can get the idea. But right now i am drawing a blank.

    I have not read much of Golden Age. So, i am not as excited as you are. Though i love Golden Age Supes. Hopefully it turns out real good.

    If it's set during WW2 then it's a pretty safe assumption that it is neither the DKR Superman or the mainstream Superman. Assuming that's still the plan. I suppose it could be the DKR Superman since we don't know much about him or his history (other then the fact that he's still working at the DP by the time ASBR happened). But you would think people would notice that Kent guy never ages!
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    Which is a shame because his Year One style has a minimalist but realistic look to it. Even more than his Daredevil stuff.

    One of those interviews, where Miller talks about Clark being a ladies man...that might be interesting, but also might be sad...Hoping for the best!

    I never was opposed to this project in the slightest, and had some anticipation for it, but that anticipation keeps growing with everything I'm seeing/reading.

    He's such a cool guy. And he's definitely in touch with his inner-child. He's got that mischievous grin. And I like how he replies, "Whoever I'm working on" when he's asked who his favourite character is. It goes to show how he puts everything into his work

    It's also worth pointing out how he mentioned that Batman wasn't very popular when he was working on the original Dark Knight. I remember those days too. It's interesting how times have changed (and Frank was a major player in those changes) ... I've got such a good feeling about this book

    Was just watching on of Jim Lee's Twitch videos of him drawing a page for AC #1000, and he briefly mentions this project-- Apparently it's got a lot to do with Superman's relationships with various women and how they've affected him. He name drops Lana, Lois and-- get ready-- Lori Lemaris.

    Not an angle I was expecting.

    About 25mins 30secs minutes in here.
