"Alan Moore and I once had about a six-hour argument about the Joker, back when he did comic books -- because he believed that the Batman and Joker were almost parallels that were separated at birth. Alan had a much more, a sort of attitude of moral relativism about what was good and what was evil. I took a much more arched view, because I believe that the Joker is not so much insane as satanic. He's evil incarnate, and he's so malicious that it goes beyond anything we could understand. That's what's so terrifying about him, is that he simply wants to do as much harm and damage as he possibly can." - Frank Miller

Zack Snyder: I perceive it as him not killing directly, but if the bad guy’s are associated with a thing that happens to blow up, he would say that that’s not really my problem.

A little more like manslaughter than murder, although I would say that in the Frank Miller comic book that I reference, he kills all the time. There’s a scene from the graphic novel where he busts through a wall, takes the guy’s machine gun…I took that little vignette from a scene in The Dark Knight Returns, and at the end of that, he shoots the guy right between the eyes with the machine gun.

DC has previewed the cover to the upcoming Dark Knight Universe Presents The Atom #1. The image marks Frank Miller's return to art duties in a good long while, and it's generated some interesting reactions from various comic book creators:

"I can't get enough of it. Hope to see sequentials again." - Erik Larsen

"I love it. I understand it's not everyone's cup but to tear at him how some have is dis-heartening." - Rob Liefeld

"My interest for this book increased about 100000x over due to this cover. I love what he's done there. Really interesting stuff." - Joe Keatinge

"For a moment, I forgot he wasn't producing the entire thing. Too bad." - Landry Walker

"He’s been talking for years about the crude power of superheroes, how they had more impact in the Golden Age when they were raw, unpolished. People will talk about how Frank’s not drawing it well, or not drawing it right, but that’s not what’s going on. Frank’s drawing it the way he wants the idea of this raw, crude, powerful idea to come across, not the way Neal [Adams] or Curt [Swan] or anyone else drew. He’s powerful, ugly, Eastwood-mad, with Kirby fists and a noticeable dick. This isn’t by mistake, it’s not lack of control. It’s cartooning, it’s Frank presenting an idea of Superman that isn’t sleek and pretty. I expect a lot of people are going to hate it. I’m not saying you should like it. I’m saying it’s not the result of someone 'losing it.' It’s the result of Frank wanting to say something different, that you don’t like." - Kurt Busiek

"Agreed. The only real measure of art is how well it said what it set out to say." -- Mark Waid

As we've seen with the debates with this post...

...there's a bit of controversy regarding the direction of the Bat books. Some object to Bruce not being a loner. What's with these groups and others wearing the Bat symbol? What's with people looking to Batman as an inspiration when he's just supposed to scare the crap out of everybody, good and evil aike? Bruce publicly funding superheroes? What's with that candle swearing ceremony thing?

They all date back decades, in some cases almost as long as Batman has existed.

A look back...

There are some interesting things about the Joker in the DARK KNIGHT RETURNS. He has white instead of red lips, he doesn't wear his "traditional" purple suit, and he doesn't laugh insanely or even smile *that* much. Anyway...

Darling. )

I don't like Frank Miller. I don't really even like The Dark Knight Returns. Much. Yet Carrie Kelly has been my default icon for, like, ages. Wherefore then do I like her so much?

Actually,  I'm not entirely sure. But what's NOT to like about her?

First of all, I apologize for the quality of the scans. This is my first attempt trying to scan from a trade and I've obviously failed pretty miserably. I respect those of you who can actually accomplish it all the more now.

 Also, spoiler warning for those of you who haven't read TDK.

Okay. That's all for now. I'm being kicked off the computer.

Also: I'm kind of confused by the tagging system. Is there any database for official tags? I hope I did this right.
