Miller described the world of Dark Knight as a point of view rather than an alternate universe:

"The point of view is that the world is essentially a chaotic, dangerous place where authority cannot be trusted. Therefore, it needs a “Zorro,” a criminal who can fight for the innocent civilians. The status quo cannot be trusted."

Andy Kubert talked about his approach to drawing Dark Knight III:

"I knew it had to continue pretty much the way it was. I couldn’t veer off into my own world or anything like that, it had to be along the same lines as what Frank had started. That was one of the most harrowing things I’ve ever had to put together, but that’s how I thought about it."

And Aarello talked about what Batman’s role is in the world of Dark Knight and will continue to be in Dark Knight III

"Batman, in The Dark Knight, is an outlaw. That’s not something that is really in the regular series. They call him a vigilante, but that’s okay. Here, he’s an outlaw. He’s not a friend of the police. And Superman’s bigger and larger than life itself. Superman is an inspirational force. He’s big. That’s something that Batman fights against."

The first issue of Dark Knight III: The Master Race goes on sale November 25th. Stay tuned to Caped Crusades for all the Bat-tastic news coming out of this year’s New York Comic Con!
