Frank Miller (January 27, 1957; Olney, Maryland) is an American comics writer and filmmaker. He is known worldwide for his popular works The Dark Knight Returns, Born Again, Sin City, 300 and Ronin. Married until 2005 with comic book colorist and illustrator Lynn Varley.
Frank Miller’s Biography
He made his first work for Marvel Comics in 1979 in Spectacular Spiderman, in a crossover with Daredevil. But he became known as a young promise in the Daredevil series, also for Marvel Comics, between the late seventies and early eighties. Shortly after, he made for the DC Comics Ronin publishing house, the story of a samurai without a master in a post-apocalyptic future, a work where he showed a graphic evolution influenced by some European artists as well as some classics of Japanese comics.
In 1986 he returned to the Daredevil series, writing the saga Born Again, and counting on this occasion with the excellent David Mazzucchelli in the graphic part. In this saga, Miller uses the Catholic iconography as a metaphor to tell the fall and subsequent ‘resurrection’ of the character. On a formal level, it condenses all the experience accumulated to date, demonstrating its narrative expertise with a precise control of the rhythm and times of history, and relying on dry, austere and accurate dialogues and prose.
His most famous work is Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (Return of the Dark Knight), again in DC Comics, in which he would present an aged and retired Batman (who would end up facing Superman, the other great icon of the editorial), showing us in passing his vision of a near ultraviolent future and dominated by Mass Media. Later, and together with Mazzucchelli again, he would recreate the first year of Batman in the saga of four numbers Batman: Year One, approaching more than ever to the registers of black series literature.
We must also mention his two collaborations with the cartoonist Bill Sienkiewicz: Daredevil: Love and War and, especially, Elektra: Assassin, where he would define in a more detailed way the murderous ninja that he created for the Daredevil pages, and his tragic past, inspired by its mythological namesake (myth of Elektra).
In the 90s, Miller leaves DC Comics and makes Epic Comics one last work on his creation Elektra, entitled Elektra Lives Again, and in which Miller, accompanied by one of the best colors of Linn Varley, wanted to give his particular goodbye to the world of Daredevil. He returned, however, in 1993, to write a miniseries of the character (accompanied by the drawing of John Romita Jr) that was titled Daredevil: Man Without Fear, based a priori on a failed screenplay.
His most important work during the nineties is the one he conceived in the independent publisher Dark Horse, where Miller found himself with complete creative freedom to do whatever he wanted. Thus, in 1990 he collaborated with the cartoonist Geoff Darrow in Hard Boiled, an ultraviolent story that mixed satire, black genre and science fiction. This was a work with problems, because in Dark Horse they received protests for the content of the work. In the same year he collaborated with the cartoonist Dave Gibbons (famous for his drawings in Watchmen, Alan Moore’s scripts) and both created the limited series “Martha Washington: Give Me Liberty”, where the political satire that he knew how to always carry Miller (especially in “Dark Knight Returns” and “Elektra: Assasin”) reached new heights in this apocalyptic, violent and futuristic story. Miller and Gibbons went back to work on the character later, in “Marta Washington Goes to War” (1994), “Happy Birthday, Marha Washington” (1995), “Martha Washington Stranded in Space” (1995) “Martha Washington Saves the World “(1997) and” Martha Washington Dies “(2007).
Alternate these works with some more, such as movie scripts, the miniseries “RoboCop Vs The Terminator” or a work with the famous character of Image, Spawn in the crossover “Batman / Spawn”. But if something stands out of this time is his famous work of black and pulp Sin City, whose first issue was made in 1991 with the name of “Sin City”, since Miller had not thought at first continue writing stories set in this city . From Sin City Miller delves graphically into an aesthetic synthesis more indebted to Expressionism, with strong influences from the Argentine José Muñoz, that of the theme of the black series in which the stories are framed and to which homage is intended.
In 1995, Miller worked again with Darrow on Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, which continues unpublished in Spain but has known an animated series translated as “Grandullón y Robotín”. Big Guy met certain popularity in Dark Horse and of this one they were some crossovers with other personages of the fictitious universe (but never confirmed like so) of the publishing house, getting to join with the Madman of Mike Allred or with Martha Washington in the adventure titled “Martha Washington Stranded in Space “.
In 1998 he made “300”, a small graphic novel that tells the battle of Thermopylae from the Spartan point of view. It is a comic that drew attention especially for the excellent color and the decision of Miller to edit it in landscape format.
Recently Miller returned to DC Comics to make a second part of the successful “Dark Knight Returns”. Thus, between November of 2001 and July of 2002, DC Comics published a miniseries in three numbers titled “The Dark Knight Strikes Again” (The Dark Knight Strikes Back, or The Lord of the Night Attacks Again), also known by the initials ” DK2. ” This is a controversial story since it has strongly divided the opinions of the fans. If in the last years, and mainly in its work Sin City, certain sectors of public began to doubt that the creative quality of Miller continued being so, with this “DK2” the feeling was increased since many fans felt cheated. In total opposition to these fans, the other half usually defend that it is a very good comic.
Currently Frank Miller continues to work with Batman on the series “All Star: Batman & Robin The Boy Wonder”, along with cartoonist Jim Lee.
Lately Miller has known special media relevance for the film adaptations of two of his works, his popular series Sin City, directed in 2005 by Robert Rodriguez (with the same Miller as co-director, and Quentin Tarantino taking over some scenes) and later the graphic novel 300, taken to the big screen in 2007 by Zack Snyder. But Miller, before the adaptations of “300” and “Sin City” had already made his first steps in the cinema. His most outstanding work in this aspect was, in the 90s, the writer of the second and third part of Robocop. However, he was very dissatisfied with these works, mainly because he felt creatively coerced. Anyway, his original script for Robocop 2 was adapted by Steve Grant for Avatar Press.
He also made cameos in the films RoboCop 2 (1990), Jugular Wine: A Vampire Odissey (1994), Daredevil (2003) and Sin City (2005).
Currently working on the sequel to Sin City, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, with Robert Rodríguez. Filming began in the summer of 2012.
