Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: The Comic Book that Invented the Modern Superhero

Presented with Brooklyn Boulders


Join me for a two hour Olio looking at the 30th anniversary of the comic book that changed everything -- its real world politics, its challenging cinematic formal innovations, its operatic tone, its radical revision of the history of all superhero comic books, and its parody of fascism that might actually be a fucked up endorsement. Everyone will have a good time even if they have not read the book.

Included in this ticket is a day pass + free lesson at Brooklyn Boulders climbing gym and complimentary beers by Avery Brewing co. 

** Non-climbers who want to attend the event can email team@thinkolio.org **




Location: Brooklyn Boulders

575 Degraw St, Brooklyn, NY 11217

Brooklyn Boulders is a first of its kind rock climbing facility and dynamic creative community. They are an eclectic mix of lifestyles, born and bred from the unique and multifaceted forces of New York City. With 22,000 square feet of climbing surface managed by a dedicated and skilled route-setting staff, Brooklyn Boulders is the ideal training ground for beginners and advanced climbers, diversified with classes in yoga, acroyoga and capoeira.

Brooklyn is where it all began in 2009, when they opened their doors in the old Daily News Garage. It’s more than just a city; it’s a state of mind. It’s about the creative clash of cultures that creates a diverse community, filled with passion and drive to make things happen.
