Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we're taking a look at The Dark Knight Returns, the critically acclaimed and best-selling Batman mini-series that seems to be serving as inspiration for Batman v Superman. Find out how Frank Miller's lack of concern for Batman continuity affected Jim Gordon's marriage, how Love and Rockets affected the series, and just why licken chegs don't shiv, mon, as well as several other equally interesting facts.

Show notes:

  • If for some reason you don't already have The Dark Knight Returns, you can buy it in paperback here.
  • If you don't have DKR, you probably don't have Year One, either, so you should probably get that too.
  • You can get The Dark Knight Strikes Again here if that is what you're into.
  • You can get the DKR animated feature here.
  • If you randomly hate Lynn Varley for no reason, you can get this edition of DKR without color.
