When I saw this, I though Spawn said that batman's poetry sucked and this is the result. :)

Frank Miller, who's never written anything resembling a good Batman story in his entire life. That's what went wrong.

the Dark Knight Returns was good
So was Batman: Year One

They both sucked. Irredeemably so. Plotless, incoherent, full of stupid and unlikeable characters (including Batman himself), Catwoman as a hooker in both, and DKR marked the beginning of Miller's nonstop Superman bashing. There's no difference in quality between those and Miller's subsequent Batman stuff, unless becoming more entrenched in his own stupidity counts as a difference.

They were good,
If you notice, in DKR, Superman was still portrayed as a pretty likeable character, who's love for the people put him into a bad situation (he decided to work for the government, in exchange for still being allowed to save people)

Batman himself wasn't nearly as psychotic in these titles as in Miller's later exploits.
It took allot more to push him over the edge, and was generally less willing to use lethal force
He also relied more on his smarts

"stupid and unlikeable" you basically described the vast majority of humanity here
The characters being jerks does not mean the story is bad, real humans tend to be even worse

Face it, Miller was a good writer at one point, but he got stuck in his own conventions and clichés, believing his own hype

Don't tell me what I did or didn't notice. Those books were TWILIGHT-level Mary Sue garbage and that's that. I will NOT be told to like books that offer nothing of value. And I will NOT be told to "face" that a talentless writer was ever good when his work is consistent across the board in its failings.

You have no right to talk to me like this. Don't ever do it again.

And you have no right to spew such bullshit about an actual good work, just because it's author lost his way later on, just because you have conservative tastes

Let's be honest, you are just parroting whatever Linkara says, and try to be holier than the pope on top of that

Don't like it?
Fine
But don't harras people for being less closed-minded than you

btw, nice gallery

He wrote The Dark Knight Returns and Batman Year One, both considered to be among the greatest Batman Stories in existed.

Sorry, they both sucked. For the exact same reasons his other Batman stuff does. He's never written a good Batman story. I've read infinitely better Batman stuff than Miller's dribble.

To be or not to be? I believe the answer to the question in this case is "not".

... Did you, or did you not make the title card for the upcoming Warrior #4? I've believed I have got myself to the point of wanting to see that review and see more of the insanity that the Ultimate Warrior has to bring.

Still, another review to look forward to.

The sad part is, DC did their own Batman/Spawn book, written by the entire Batman creative team and drawn by Klaus Janson. That book was outstanding, and it treated both characters with incredible respect. And the best part? Aside from a very brief scene of mistaken identity at the start, Batman and Spawn got along pretty well and worked together.

Miller's book? Well, those of you haven't read that piece of shit are about to find out just how bad it is. And just how horribly Todd McFarlane's beautiful artwork is wasted on it.
