Hunting the Dark Knight

Hunting the Dark Knight

This month we publish Will Brooker’s new book Hunting the Dark Knight: 21st Century Batman, coinciding with the release of Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. So, to indulge all our wildest Batman fantasies, we decided to create a Hunting the Dark Knight board on Pinterest that celebrates Batman in all his guises – camp, comic, animated, macho. We just can’t get enough of those meta-narratives.

Below is just a selction, but you can view the whole thing here.
