But in a new Reddit AMA, he expressed an interest in writing new Captain America comic book stories for Marvel. And Marvel could be interested. Read the Frank Miller Captain America quotes below.

Oni Press has given Slashfilm readers something very cool. For free.
The company behind Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has allowed us to upload the entire first issue of their new comic, The Auteur from Rick Spears and James Callahan. It’s a smart and funny, yet gruesome and twisted tale of a big time Hollywood producer and how he reacts to his first major flop. The writing teems with insider movie quips and the art beautifully clashes with that humor in a hyper-real, violent way. It’s like a grounded Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, if Hunter S. Thompson was a film producer and his Las Vegas was Tinsletown.
It’s super-fun read; if you don’t believe me, you can check out or download the entire first issue below. Read More »
