“I’m so proud of this life-changing project, to be able to be one of the very few artists that had the chance to materialize Frank Miller’s visions into art and being part of his seminal Dark Knight Returns saga forever.”
– Rafael Grampá
“The Golden Child” is Frank Miller’s triumphant return to the world of the Dark Knight, along with superstar artist Rafael Grampá, the mastermind behind the groundbreaking “Mesmo Delivery.” Even before its release in December 2019, “The Golden Child” was making waves. On November 26, 2019, DC Comics posted the promotional artwork for this series on their social media, where you can see Batwoman throwing a Molotov cocktail, mixed with the phrase “The Future Is Young”. But as soon as it was released, the publisher decided to delete the promo, and in a movement of revolt against possible censorship by China, protesters in Hong Kong adopted the art as a symbol of the protests. The controversy took on worldwide proportions and this art created by Grampá became featured in The Guardian, Le Monde, Business Insider, Variety, South China Morning Post, Global News, Rolling Stone, and in hundreds of other vehicles around the planet. Later in 2020, the original variant cover art was auctioned for USD 24,000 on Heritage Auctions.
Now, Chiaroscuro studios Gallery is proud of this unique announcement by offering all the interior art from DKR: The Golden Child by Rafael Grampá, a rare opportunity to own an art piece from The Dark Knight Returns saga.
