About the Author
Miller exploded on the comics scene in the late 1970s. He devotes time and energy to fight censorship wherever it arises.
Over his 30-year career, Klaus Janson has brought to life such characters as Batman, Punisher, Daredevil, and Spawn. This book is the culmination of theories learned and applied while teaching at the famed School of Visual Arts for the last 11 years. Janson lives in New York City.

Miller pencils every issue in this trade, but he doesn't take over sole writing duties until issue 12 of the 16 collected. Before Frank, Roger McKenzie, Bill Mantlo and the like take us through 11 issues of that archaic comics dialogue, examples of which include Spider-Man (himself) exclaiming "The Amazing Spider-Man is FINISHED!" Much worse, every issue is filled with lines clearly designed to fill new readers in on DD's powers, so he's always describing how his powers work and WHY he's thinking what he's thinking. And he calls Spider-Man `fella' which makes him seem twice as old as he is. Yuck. Plus, anytime Bullseye is featured, he will invariably boast `in my hands, any item is a deadly weapon', or have it boasted for him. This sort of writing is out of date and grating enough to have me almost recommend this collection is skipped. Alas, when Frank takes over towards the end he sets things in motion for the rest of his run that are really quite important, so it's worth picking up.
Fans of Sin City, 300 and The Dark Knight Returns will barely recognize the work in this book, I might add: this is Miller working on a monthly title for one of the big two very early in his career, so the art is not indicative of his personality, shall we say. This is no bad thing, however. His pencils are striking and capable of efficient storytelling, and Janson's ink add a sombre touch to the atmosphere that is honestly the defining aspect of these issues, artistically.
Once you've done with this, pick up volumes 2 and 3, and the Born Again TPB which is collected separately.Read more ›
