Frank Miller’s Dark Knight series has, for better or worse, been one of the most highly influential pieces of Batman media in decades—and a return to that universe is one that usually could be fraught with danger. But the first issue of The Master Race has some surprising twists to it that leave us wanting to know…
Tomorrow, Frank Miller’s wildly influential (and batshit crazy) Dark Knight series returns with the unfortunately-named The Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Such an event has not escaped DC, and they’re putting out some spectacular variant covers to celebrate—over 50 of them, in fact. So much lovely Batman art!
Dark Knight 3: The Master Race isn’t even out yet, but co-writer Frank Miller has already announced that the trilogy has turned into a quadrilogy. Miller told Newsarama that “after he reads DK3 in full, he intends to create his own fourth chapter” which, frankly, is terrifying on about eight different levels.
Hello. This is an actual comic cover drawn by legendary comic artist Frank Miller. It’s the cover to a companion comic to Miller’s upcoming Dark Knight III: The Master Race series, and it appears DC is actually going to publish it despite the fact that 1) it is horrible, 2) it is laughable and 3) you can clearly see…
In 2005, DC teamed legendary Batman comic writer Frank Miller and equally legendary artist Jim Lee for what they clearly hoped would be the ultimate Batman comic. What they got was a comic in which Batman called Robin “retarded.” In short, they got the worst Batman comic ever made. And I love it.
This... this will not end well. DC comics has just announced that Frank Miller, one of comics’ greatest creators who has since devolved into one of the comics’ world’s weird crazy uncles, is creating a third volume in the saga he began with The Dark Knight Returns, to be titled The Dark Knight: The Master Race.
We’re awash in live-action adaptations of comic books lately, including several TV shows. But Netflix’s new Daredevil series still feels like something special. It pulls no punches, never winks at the audience, and perfectly captures the feel of the best Daredevil comics. Here’s our spoiler-free review.
Everybody loves Batman. After 75 years of saving Gotham City, the Caped Crusader has become an archetype. So it's not surprising that every comic needs its own version of Bats. And yet, Batman remains unique, and it's not so easy to copy him. Here are 9 Batman knock-offs that totally miss why Batman works.
We've already seen that Batman V. Superman has been filming an iconic Batman scene. But while it's a moment we've seen on film time and again, the latest set photos show how closely this version will resemble a scene in Frank Miller's comic The Dark Knight Returns. Mild spoilers ahead.
If you know Frank Miller's oeuvre, you know that headline isn't an insult. It is, however, a real departure from the tone of the last Sin City. How much you like the new movie will depend on what you actually want out of this story of vengeful hookers in murder town.
The new trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has finally revealed the main theme of the sequel: everybody wants to kill Powers Booth. And why shouldn't they? He's super evil. The evilist. So cue the antagonist team-up gang.
The network has ordered not one, not two but four new pilots based on hit scifi and fantasy properties. Three are comic adaptations — Letter 44, Pax Romana, and Frank Miller's Ronin — while the other is The Magicians, based on Lev Grossman's hit urban, adult fantasy novels.
The very first trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is chockablock full of all the great things that reside in Sin City. Sexy dancing, sexy sexin, gambling, fist fighting, bruises, sexy ladies, and people looking pissed off in the front seats of cars. Here we go again!
There's a new trailer for the 300 sequel
The Legend of Curly's Gold Rise of an Empire, and it's sad that this once proud franchise has traded its trademark quiet introspection and examination of the human condition for such bombast. Naw, I'm just kiddin', both movies are about half-naked dudes killing each other.
Superheroes don't just wear costumes to disguise themselves — they take on a whole heroic identity by slapping on the spandex. So it's no wonder that supers like to keep their suits in elaborate glass cases, so they can stare at them and brood. Here are our favorite scenes of superheroes staring at costumes in cases.
When Alan Moore wasn’t busy making Watchmen in the '80s, he was writing a screenplay for a twisted version of Beauty and the Beast titled Fashion Beast. This lost epic finally arrives as a graphic novel this week, along with Jeff Lemire’s new Vertigo series, the Dark Tower finale, a Robocop you never saw and more!
So yesterday we heard a rumor that Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is looking to put an old Bruce Wayne in his Batman/Superman movie. Now Snyder is planning a sit-down with comics creator Frank Miller to talk about the crossover film.
Things are looking up for Detroit's best-known fictional half-robot cop. He's got a new movie reboot coming out (which admittedly might not be any good); Boom! Studios just announced a new Robocop graphic novel from Frank Miller, titled Last Stand (which will likely be completely insane); and even if both of those…
Frank Miller is a genius whose seminal works helped transform comics in the '80s from a children's medium to a legitimately accepted art form. Unfortunately, he's recently been under attack... by Frank Miller. The current work Miller is doing seems like it's purposefully, relentlessly trying to destroy his own…
Here's the first trailer for The Dark Knight Returns, Part I, the straight-to-DVD cartoon version of Frank Miller's classic "Batman bucks retirement" miniseries. The Dark Knight is voiced by none other than Peter Weller, Murphy/Buckaroo/the Italian Renaissance art history PhD candidate himself. The movie hits stores…
