Frank Miller Cover Checklist

Whether you like his new stuff or not, Frank Miller is one of the most influential creators alive in comics. I personally lost a bit of interest somewhere between All-Star Batman & Robin and Holy Terror, but his art on the DKIII mini-comics made me pay attention again. It’s probably not as stylized as the newer generations, but his new raw style (which is mostly Miller but with a healthy dose of late Kirby inked with a rusty knife) still brings something to the table. Looking at his covers from the 70s to today there seem to be clear signs of an evolution in this direction.

There’s a reason we keep talking about Miller, while other artists of his generation seem to have left the stage, and that’s the energy he keeps putting on his art. He draws like a hungry new artist getting started in the business. And that’s, for me, a good reason to take a look back at his career through his covers. Enjoy!!!ROW #1

    Frank Miller is my guy, even though he’s regressed to connect the dots for his current work. There’s a number of covers on here that I had no idea existed. Thank you for putting this together!!!!

  • gideontged

    Totally forgot he did the connecting covers for Valiant. DKIII was just an awkward style. 0.o

  • Dale Valiant horton

    I dont know how you put these checklist together i wish they came in a hardcover collected edition. So much great info.

  • Awesome!!! Thanks for putting in the work! I feel crazy for not knowing ROM 1 was a miller!

  • I’m not a fan of the artwork he has created that presents such disproportionate human bodies and basic human anatomy. The whole DKIII series alone was enough to push me away. The cover with WW…?! One of the worst pieces of character art from a respected artist that I’ve ever seen.

    Granted, he has some fantastic work, and I’ve collected many of the covers he has created, but there are too far many instances IMO, when his artwork could be considered… dare I say, unqualified.
