If you’ve read a comic book in the last 30 years—or even if you’ve only been to the movies—you've felt the impact of Frank Miller’s work. One of the most influential comics creators of his era, Miller’s work for DC and Marvel comics in the 1980s helped redefine superheroes, bringing a dark, often dystopian sensibility to beloved characters. Nowhere was that more earthshaking than in 1986's The Dark Knight Returns, Miller's story of an aging Batman battling not just the Joker but his own failing body, a corrupt government and a collapsing social order. In this episode of the podcast, Miller talks with Joel Cunningham about his return to that grimly exciting Gotham with Batman: The Dark Knight: Master Race.
