This oversized volume is the second in The Comics Journal Library series of coffee-table collections of interviews from the magazine's two-decades-plus history, and features interviews with famed cartoonist Frank Miller spanning his entire career (including a new conversation with Gary Groth conducted for this volume). Experience Miller, in his own words, as the revolutionary 24-year-old freelance artist in the process of redefining the previously moribund superhero Daredevil for Marvel Comics; the same artist just a few years later, on the cusp of changing mainstream culture forever with the graphic novels Ronin, The Dark Knight Returns and Batman: Year One for DC Comics; a 30-year-old Miller about to abandon the major companies, passionately speaking out about censorship and creator's rights; a 41-year-old Miller on his independent work, like the crime-noir series Sin City, The Big Guy and Rusty the Robot, the savagely satirical futuristic thriller Give Me Liberty, and much more! Heavily illustrated with Miller artwork (including some rarely-seen pieces), with an introduction by New York Times film critic Elvis Mitchell and a major essay on Miller's career by Larry Rodman, this book is the definitive tome on the life's work of a major cartoonist.
