Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s on Marvel Comics Daredevil. It was there that Miller gained notoriety, honed his storytelling abilities, and took his first steps toward becoming a giant in the comics medium.
After Daredevil came Ronin , a science-fiction samurai drama that melded Japanese and French comics traditions into the American mainstream, and after that, the groundbreaking and acclaimed Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, and Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again.
Miller introduced Sin City in 1991, fulfilling his dream of doing all-out, straight-ahead crime comics. Readers responded enthusiastically to his tough-as-leather noir drama, which Miller continued to develop in subsequent years. His multiple award-winning 300 series from Dark Horse, a telling of history’s most glorious and underreported battle, was brought to full-blooded life in 1998.
Today Miller continues to push the comics medium into new territories, exploring subject matter previously untouched. With the 2005 release of Frank Miller’s Sin City, and the 2008 release of Will Eisner’s The Spirit, the artist added director’s credits to his long list of accomplishments.
