With the release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For we are giving you eight of Frank Miller’s best comic book covers. He did so much more than create Sin City, he helped a generation visualize their heroes. He has given us so much to be thankful for, from his work on the Wolverine series to his mind blowing version of everyone’s favorite superhero Batman. So buckle up, it may be a bumpy ride.
The cover of Wolverine #1 was created by Frank Miller. This image is the go to when a generation thinks about the blade laden hero. Would you approach this smirking murderer? He’s looking right at you and motioning towards you.
Frank Miller is responsible for Daredevil #160, he’s responsible for so much of the Daredevil imagery he helped make the character what he is today. This cover in particular shows Bullseye as he’s about to get down to some serious hair styling.
In this cover of Power Man and Iron Fist #68 we see the two powerful heroes have met their match. If this were DC we could assume that that man was Superman, but since this is in the realm of Marvel you’ll have to read it to find out who exactly is this powerful civilian.
This cover of the Moon Knigh series makes the hero look even more heroic. This superhero is the result of the the Egyptian idol Khonshu giving him life in exchange for his service.
Wonder Woman #298 features the skeleton of the heroine of legend. This image makes you want to read the book, to find out how exactly the amazonian princess ended up this way. Thank goodness her Tiara survived untouched otherwise we wouldn’t know whose corpse that was.
The series Superman: The Secret Years follows those missing years from when he goes to Metropolis to when he’s the massively popular savior of the world. In this image we see him as he saves a child, a public service announcement to not play with toys on the train tracks.
This cover of Mazing Man #12 features Frank Miller’s Batman and Robin from his series Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. This is the penultimate issue of the Mazing Man series so it’s very fitting that they go out with a bang and including Frank Miller makes everything bang.
One of Frank Miller’s earlier comics was John Carter Warlord of Mars #26. This series based on the novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs, who also brought us the Conan books, was brought to life by the legendary artist.
