Frank Miller Superman comic

Comic book writer and artist Frank Miller believes he’s never had a “meaningful crack at Superman.” He’s now taking his shot with a new Superman project. The author of The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and Batman: Year One is revolving his Superman story around the Man of Steel’s younger years. “It’s telling his beginnings from when Pa Kent discovered him in the cornfield, and the little boy goes to youth, and then to manhood,” Miller said. According to artist John Romita Jr., who worked with Miller on “Daredevil: The Man Without Fear,” Superman: Year One isn’t exactly a retelling of that familiar tale.

Below, Romita Jr. discusses the Frank Miller Superman comic.

marvel canceled fantastic four

With a box office bomb and a canceled comic book series, Fantastic Four has a less-than-fantastic future ahead of it. But the only thing that could have sabotaged the fate of Marvel’s first family is a lack of audience interest, according to Marvel. Right?

Wrong, says Fantastic Four comic book writer Jonathan Hickman. Hickman is lauded comic book writer whose work at Marvel includes titles such as S.H.I.E.L.D., Avengers, and Secret Wars, but he is probably most known by superhero fans for bringing the Fantastic Four into the modern era with his 2009 run. But the Fantastic Four comics were suddenly canceled in 2014, leading to a wave of rumors that Marvel Studio’s inability to reclaim film rights from 20th Century Fox led to the comic book’s demise. And Hickman says those rumors were correct.
