Frank Miller Is Ready For His Comics Fatwa

Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns transformed comics into graphic novels, and Batman into pop culture’s most popular superhero. But Miller himself, at right playing a perverted priest in the cinematic adaptation of his postmodern pulp noir Sin City, was so transformed by 9/11’s shock and awe that he wanted to draft The Dark Knight to kick Al Qadea’s ass.

But DC Comics said hell no, in a manner of speaking. So now Miller has a new hero called The Fixer, who has been weaponized for payback in Miller’s forthcoming comic Holy Terror. I probed Miller’s comics paranoia for Wired.
