He recently directed the film version of The Spirit, shared directing duties with Robert Rodriguez on Sin City and produced the film At Marvel, Miller would settle in as a regular fill-in and cover artist, working on a variety of titles. Shooter agreed and made Miller the new penciller on the title.
As Miller recalled in , When I first showed up in New York, I showed up with a bunch of comics, a bunch of samples, of guys in trench coats and old cars and such. But as soon as a title came along, when [Daredevil signature artist] Gene Colan left Daredevil, I realized it was my secret in to do crime comics with a superhero in them.
And so I lobbied for the title and got it". Although still conforming to traditional comic book styles, Miller infused this first issue with his own film noir style. Learning from Neal Adams, Miller would sit for hours sketching the roofs of New York in an attempt to give his Daredevil art an authentic feel not commonly seen in superhero comics at the time. Miller was so successful with the title that Marvel began publishing the Daredevil comic monthly as opposed to its previous bimonthly publication period.
With issue Jan. Miller would write and draw a solo Elektra story in Bizarre Adventures 28 Oct. This peaked when in April he had the assassin Bullseye kill Elektra. Although deaths of supporting characters are common in comics, the death of a major, costumed character such as Elektra was not. Miller made it clear with the next few issues that he intended Elektra to remain dead, but nonetheless she was revived during his time as writer.
Miller finished his Daredevil run with issue Feb. This was his first encounter with a character with which, like Daredevil, he would become closely associated. As penciler and co-plotter, Miller, together with writer Chris Claremont, produced the miniseries Wolverine Sept.
It was inked by Klaus Janson and colored by Lynn Varley. The story tells how Batman retired after the death of the second Robin, and at age 55 returns to fight crime in a dark and violent future. Miller created a tough, gritty portrayal of Batman, who is often referred to as "the Dark Knight. The Dark Knight Returns influenced the comic-book industry by heralding a new wave of darker characters, along with Batman: The Killing Joke.
The trade paperback collection proved to be a big seller for DC and remains in print 20 years after first being published. By this time, Miller had returned as the writer of Daredevil. Following his self-contained story "Badlands", penciled by John Buscema, in June , he co-wrote Jan. Then, with artist David Mazzucchelli, he crafted a seven-issue story arc that, like The Dark Knight Returns, similarly redefined and reinvigorated its main character. The storyline, "Daredevil: Born Again" , in Feb.
Both of these projects were well-received critically. Elektra: Assassin was praised for its bold storytelling, but neither it nor Daredevil: Love and War had the influence or reached as many readers as Dark Knight Returns or Born Again. This helped bring Japanese manga to a wider Western audience. Disagreeing with what he saw as censorship, Miller refused to do any further work for DC, and he would take his future projects to the independent publisher Dark Horse Comics.
From then on Miller would be a major supporter of creator rights and be a major voice against censorship in comics. Sin City and the s After announcing he intended to release his work only via the independent publisher Dark Horse Comics, Miller completed one final project for Epic Comics, the mature-audience imprint of Marvel Comics.
Elektra Lives Again was a fully painted graphic novel written and drawn by Miller and colored by longtime partner Lynn Varley.
Give Me Liberty was followed by sequel miniseries and specials expanding on the story of protagonist Martha Washington, an African-American woman in modern-day and near-future America, all of which were written by Miller and drawn by Gibbons.
Miller also wrote the scripts for the science fiction films RoboCop 2 and RoboCop 3, about a police cyborg.
Neither was critically well-received. Afterward, Miller stated he would never allow Hollywood to make movie adaptations of his comics, being disgusted with what he characterized as studio interference with his scriptwriting.
Miller would come into contact with the fictional cyborg once more, however, writing the comic-book minieries, RoboCop vs. The Terminator, with art by Walter Simonson. In Miller started work on his first Sin City story. Proving to be another success, the story was released in a trade paperback. Sin City proved artistically auspicious for Miller and again brought his work to a wider audience outside of comics. Daredevil: Man Without Fear was a mini-series published by Marvel Comics in based on an earlier film script.
In this Miller and artist John Romita Jr. The series was published as a two-part mini-series from Dark Horse Comics. In it became an animated series on Fox Kids.

In , was adapted by director Zack Snyder into a highly successful film. Miller has been vocally opposed to recent comic art attempting to give the cosmetic appearance of what some say is more realism. In an interview on the documentary Legends of the Dark Knight: The History of Batman, Miller said, "People are attempting to bring a superficial reality to superheroes which is rather stupid.
They work best as the flamboyant fantasies they are. I mean, these are characters that are broad and big. I want to see him fly. Rodriguez showed this short film to Miller, who was so pleased with the result that he approved a full-length film, Sin City.
Miller and Rodriguez are credited as co-directors, which Rodriguez insisted upon and had allegedly promised to Miller. Directors Guild of America rules permit only one person or "legitimate" directorial team such as the Coen brothers being listed as the director of a film. As a result, Rodriguez elected to resign from the Guild. And the film did the same for In a July New York Times interview, Miller mentioned that the story was evolving: "As I worked on it, it became something that was no longer Batman.

And so I lobbied for the title and got it. Sales rose so swiftly that Marvel once again began publishing Daredevil monthly rather than bimonthly just three issues after Miller became its writer.
Miller and Varley divorced in In November , Miller posted incendiary remarks pertaining to the Occupy Wall Street movement in his personal blog.
