Frank Miller Working on a New "World War II" Sin City


Frank Miller's next Sin City book will be "a love story set against the backdrop of World War II."

<a href=http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/135375-Frank-Miller-Wants-to-Write-Captain-America>Frank Miller, in the world of comics, is a name both famous and infamous. Known for his work on a number of groundbreaking and controversial titles, one of his biggest contributions to the comic industry has easily been his Sin City series. Grounded in noir sensibilities and filled with more sex and violence than you could shake a revenge-crazed killer at, it made a big impression on comic readers after its release and would go on to inspire two <a href=http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/escape-to-the-movies/9674-Frank-Millers-Sin-City-A-Dame-to-Kill-For-Review>feature films. If recent comments from Miller are any indicator, it's also not over yet.

Speaking today at a press conference for <a href=http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/140593-DC-Comics-Announces-The-Dark-Knight-III>Dark Knight III: The Master Race, Miller revealed that he's currently working on another entry in the franchise. "My next book is set," he said. "I'm working on it now, in fact. It's a Sin City, a love story set against the backdrop of World War II." Miller wouldn't reveal anything else about the story but did offer a response when someone asked him who would win in a fight: Batman or Sin City's king bruiser Marv. "The fight's already over," he said. "Marv's sitting at the bar having a drink."

While many have soured on Miller in recent years thanks to some of his more <a href=http://io9.com/5859038/frank-miller-slams-occupy-wall-street-becomes-a-parody-of-himself>extreme views and <a href=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Star_Batman_%26_Robin,_the_Boy_Wonder>poorly received works, I personally wouldn't mind another good comic from him. He did, after all, produce some of the medium's best loves classics. That said, the enjoy-ability of a new Sin City would hinge on it being one of his good comics. Here's hoping the dice rolls that way.

okay hate the man but going to defend him.

1. Sin City is probably the only thing he can write now.

and 2. Frank Miller has shown some love Japanese culture in his past works so it won't be as racist holy Terror

still the thing is probably going to suck buts it's going to be the annoying suck not the offensive suck. worst case scenario we get some of those idiotic political beliefs about fascism

Best typo I've seen in a while.

Although I didn't even know you could build brothels in Sim City.

Meh. I think Frank Miller was always over-rated. His stuff may have seemed "ground-breaking" at the time, but all it was was over the top violence and sex. That really wasn't anything new.

Kind of agree really. Read Dark Knight Returns recently and it just got a massive "was that it?" reaction from me. Kind of expected more from something that keeps getting lauded as one of the best modern comics have to offer. I suppose it just comes across as old hat now thats a bit more common, a victim of its own success as everyone sought to emulate it

So, here is my take on Frank Miller. We hear lots of stuff about his really good works, but he has also written quite a bit no one talks about. I feel like this is similar to Brian Michael Bendis in that he wrote some really good works and a crap ton of mediocre works. So to me, him writing something new isn't a big deal because it could go either way at this point.

I'll defend DKR as a product of it's time (and being struck by the Seinfeld effect), but everything since has been... meh, with a couple of exceptions, though everything since 2001 has just been awful.

Sometimes ground breaking, sometimes soul crushing, always a fun ride with that crazy, ol' coot.

Has Frank Miller ever written anything good? Because DKR was his best book by far, and it was awful. I cringe and die a little when people call it a mature take on comics. It reeks of angsty 16 year old edgelord silliness. I made the mistake of reading it after the excellent Watchmen, and boy was that a mistake.

Outside of that he's apparently a racist psychopath. I just don't get why this guy is such a big deal.

Frank retire. We don't need you killing your old good works anymore(even if I think their overrated). Quit while your.... well just quit.
