The Dark Knight came out just as I was finishing high school so I was the perfect age for it. Coupled with Watchmen, it was a one-two punch that at once pushed storytelling a step forward and introduced many other people to the medium that I had been championing. I own a lot of TPB's but few have the re-readability factor of TDK.
I loved the short sequence inspired by the mini-series in the Legends of the Dark Knight episode of Batman: The Animated Series, and I am kind of surprised we haven't seen a full adaptation in either animation or live action. With an animated adaptation of Miller's Batman: Year One just announced, maybe it won't be too long.
