DC Comics has unveiled what they've billed as the first cover for "Dark Knight III: The Master Race" -- a retail variant for issue #1 by artist Dave Johnson, based on a sketch by Jim Lee. The retailer-specific cover will have the logo of the participating comic shop, helpfully placed where it reads "your logo here" on the image.
This past July at Comic-Con International in San Diego, a "Dark Knight III" promo image by series artists Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson was released, but whether it'll end up as a cover has not yet been specified.
The sequel to the seminal "Dark Knight Returns" and its follow-up "The Dark Knight Strikes Again," "Dark Knight III: The Master Race" is written by Frank Miller, the architect of the "Dark Knight" universe, and Brian Azzarello, with art primarily from Kubert and Janson, the latter whom inked Miller's art in the original story. "The Dark Knight III: The Master Race" #1 is scheduled for release on Nov. 25.
