Completely revitalized the genre, yes. Superman as fascist enforcer for Reagan, amazing. Batman vs. Superman in an actually conceivable battle, makes the 14 year old in me jump for joy while the adult goes "oh CRAP!" But I just can't stop being creeped out by Frank Miller and his moral universe, which seems to think psychotic vigilantism is actually pretty okay compared to the Evil Namby Pamby Liberals who Don't Mind Letting Psychos Chop Good Citizens To Pieces. Somehow I really, really don't think the 80s crime wave was caused by that, and it gives me a real ugly feeling in the stomach. Still, a complete page-turner, though the art is a bit samey. No Batman is as creepy as this, and the pathetic vision of an aging misanthrope who gets his *ss handed to him a couple times is beyond belief. I just wonder how much the author identifies with him, and that disturbs me.
