    I do keep wondering if Mr. Miller suffered a head injury at some point. He seems to have had a total personality transplant instead of a mid-life crisis.

    Looking back at his comics I think he was always stark raving mad. It just took hima while to reach fuck you status.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    These criticisms of his Holy Terror! (no longer a Batman story) story are hilarious. From Wiki:

    In August 2006, fellow Batman writer Grant Morrison criticized the idea:

    Batman vs. Al Qaeda! It might as well be Bin Laden vs. King Kong! Or how about the sinister Al Qaeda mastermind up against a hungry Hannibal Lecter! For all the good it's likely to do. Cheering on a fictional character as he beats up fictionalized terrorists seems like a decadent indulgence when real terrorists are killing real people in the real world. I'd be so much more impressed if Frank Miller gave up all this graphic novel nonsense, joined the Army and, with a howl of undying hate, rushed headlong onto the front lines with the young soldiers who are actually risking life and limb 'vs.' Al Qaeda.

    Upon release, Holy Terror was criticized as anti-Islamic propaganda. Spencer Ackerman of Wired said,

    "Frank Miller doesn't do things halfway. One of the true comic-book greats, hes created several of the most extraordinary stories ever to grace the art form. So perhaps it's fitting that now he's produced one of the most appalling, offensive and vindictive comics of all time ... Miller's Holy Terror is a screed against Islam, completely uninterested in any nuance or empathy toward 1.2 billion people he conflates with a few murderous conspiracy theorists.

    I suspect this too. 300, at least, is pretty similar to Holly Terror in its military fetishism, historic revisionism and lack of nuance.

    He's always been mental. The only thing that changed was that he forgot how to curb himself. And how to write. Obviously he never knew how to draw in the first place.
