DC Comics Publish Dark Knight Returns in Three Different Ways in 2019

DC Comics has clearly decided they have published Watchmen in as many formats as humanly possible, so now it's time to move onto the Dark Knight. And in 2019, that means publishing the comic by Frank Miller, Klaus Janson and Lyn Varley in three different ways.

In June, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (DC Black Label Edition) paperback

DC Black Label, a new publishing imprint from DC Entertainment, gives premier talent the opportunity to expand upon the canon of DC's iconic Super Hero comic book characters with unique, standalone stories that are outside of the current DC Universe continuity. Featuring an all-star lineup of creative teams that will craft their own personal definitive DC stories in the tradition of compelling literary works like Batman: The Killing Joke, All-Star Superman and Kingdom Come.

Collects Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1-4

And in August, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (DC Modern Classics Edition) with a hardcover and slipcase.

This volume collects Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1-4.

Absolute Dark Knight (New Edition)

Collects Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1-4, Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again #1-3 and bonus design and story pages.

And then there's quotes from Dark Knight appearing in DC Comics: The Wisdom of Batman

A compact and colorful guide to Batman's best quotes from his many comic adventures.

Batman has gathered a lot of valuable wisdom in his seventy-five years of comic history. Now readers can enjoy his sage advice in this collectible tiny book.

Part of an exciting new series of miniature comic book titles, this book compiles all of Batman's cleverest and wisest quotes and life lessons along with classic artwork in an appealing mini package.

As well as Black Label collections for Dark Knight Strikes Again and The Master Race.

I mean I'm sure DC Comics publish other titles. But… why would they want to?
