In my opinion, the story for The Dark Knight Strikes Again can sometimes be weak, it can also lose focus a bit and the art gets sloppy there and again. It has much more pages as a whole, and takes up three issues. There is a bit of humour in this book too. Read if you liked:

A rather good story, but sometimes loses the plot and has sloppy artwork throughout. Overall, I do recommend to people who aren't so picky about the artwork.
