MILLER, Frank

MILLER, Frank
(1957-)
   US COMIC-book writer and artist, with a distinctive fragmented narrative technique; also film scriptwriter. During 1979-85 FM worked on MARVEL COMICS's Daredevil, producing work that was later re-released inthree collections: Child's Play (graph coll 1988), Marked for Death (graph coll 1990) and Gang War (graph coll 1992). He then produced two apocalyptic dramas for DC COMICS: Ronin (1983-4; graph coll 1987) and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (1986; graph coll 1986). All of this workbrought a new integrity to the gritty, toughly narrated drama in comics, and paved the way among prospective publishers for other hopeful writer/artists. Further work from this period included Elektra Saga (1984; graph coll 1989) and, written by Chris CLAREMONT, Wolverine (1982; graph coll 1987).Following the phenomenal success of The Dark Knight Returns - nominated for a 1987 HUGO in, absurdly, the Best Non-Fiction Book category, coming second - FM has collaborated with other comics artists including: David Mazzuchelli on Daredevil: Born Again (1985; graph coll 1987) and Batman: Year One (1987; graph coll 1988); Bill SIENKEWICZ onElektra Assassin (1986-7; graph coll 1987) and Daredevil: Love and War (graph 1986); Dave GIBBONS on Give Me Liberty (1990-91; graph coll 1991); and Geoff Darrow on Hard Boiled (1990-92). FM's other work includes Elektra Lives Again (graph 1990) and Sin City (1991-2) in Dark HorsePresents, as well as a collaboration with Walter Simonson on a series tied to the Terminator films (The TERMINATOR; TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY). FM has also collaborated on the screenplays for ROBOCOP 2 (1990) and the projected RoboCop 3, the former being based on his original story.
