Frank Miller had a chat with Vulture’s Abraham Riesman about a new project. Something he describes in terms of being the Superman version of Batman: Year One. It’s a little hard to know what to make of that. Remember, Batman: Year One was not over-the-top. These days we tend to think of Miller in terms of Dark Knight Strikes Back and “The Goddamn Batman” of All-Star Batman. That’s not the only style he’s ever written.
Have look at the video for yourself:
Miller also put in an appearance at DC’s Master Class panel, where he elaborated a bit more. Superman: Year One is to be a 100 page graphic novel drawn my John Romita, Jr. As far as the tone of the book? Time will tell.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
