Frank Miller is recognized today as one of the most influential comic book artists of our time. Miller, along with Alan Moore, is credited with helping the birth of the dark and gritty comic book with the graphic novel, “The Dark Knight Returns,” which he wrote and drew. It has been hailed as one of the greatest Batman tales of all time. People follow his work with great interest, Heritage Auctions announced recently that Miller’s 1986 ‘Dark Knight Returns’ cover can possibly sell for over $500 000.
Miller is one of the seminal creative talents who sparked the current gigantic sub-industry of motion pictures featuring comic book- initiated product. A sub-industry which had become a super-industry. This most profitable aspect of this millennium’s film production, now producing an annual flow of box office profits in the Billions of dollars, was launched when Frank Miller’s graphic novel re-take on the classic comic book hero, Batman, resulted in an entertainment industry-wide reconsideration of the genre in the deeper and darker vision Miller brought to it.
Miller re-defined the presentation of comic book characters and heroic fiction with his grand-daddy of graphic novels, “The Dark Knight.” This revolutionary work not only kicked off the series of Batman films based on his redefinition, but a craze for such material that has thrown dozens of such heroes into multiple film franchise heaven. Certainly chief among these has been Miller’s uniquely classical take on superheroic narrative, “300,” and his “Sin City” books, each of which entered motion pictures with historic successes, and each now in Miller’s creative phase of achieving its highly-anticipated sequel. Miller’s co-direction of “Sin City” has made him one of the hottest directors… as well as a guiding creative force…for the new genre. The very anticipated follow-up to “Sin City” has been lurking for the last 8 years. “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For”, is set to be released on August 22, 2014.
Miller’s latest graphic novel, Holy Terror, is his first original graphic novel in ten years. Join “The Fixer”, a brand new, hard-edged hero as he battles terror in the inaugural release from Legendary Comics.
