Frank MillerFrank Miller Returns to Baltimore Comic-Con in 2018

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – May 15, 2018 – You won’t want to miss the 2018 Baltimore Comic-Con, taking place September 28-30 at the Inner Harbor’s Baltimore Convention Center. The Baltimore Comic-Con is elated to announce the return of Frank Miller on Friday and Saturday at the show.

Frank Miller is a comic book writer and artist, a screenwriter, a film director, and a movie producer. Originally from just down the street in Olney, MD, Frank was raised in Montpelier, VT, and eventually found his way to New York City and the comic book industry in the late 1970s. Finding work in Gold Key Comics initially, he went on to work with DC and Marvel.

At the latter, after recurring fill-in and cover artist gigs, he took over art and, eventually, writing duties on Daredevil. He co-plotted the Wolverine limited series with Chris Claremont, and would continue working on titles (his own and those of the companies for which he worked) including

Ronin, Daredevil: Born Again, Elektra Lives Again, The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and 300. In addition to his comic book work, Miller wrote the scripts for Robocop 2 and 3, directed the film version of The Spirit, shared directing duties with Robert Rodriguez on the Palme d’Or-nominated Sin City and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and produced the film 300. Eagle-eyed viewers can spot him in cameo roles in Robocop 2, Daredevil, Sin City, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and The Spirit. Miller is known for creating Elektra for Marvel Comics’ Daredevil series, and a female version of the Robin character, Carrie Kelley, for DC Comics.

Miller will be appearing on Saturday and Sunday, and a limited number of tickets are available for fan interaction during his appearance. To purchase tickets to the Baltimore Comic-Con and the Frank Miller events specifically, please see our tickets webpage.

“What a thrill for us (and his fans) to have Frank back again this year!” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “We really enjoyed having him to the show last year, and Frank had a good time as well, so we’re pleased to be able to bring him back to Baltimore.”

Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello, Andy Kubert, and Klaus Janson appear at Barnes & Noble in Union Square on Saturday September 23, 2017 at 2:00 PM to sign Dark Knight III: The Master Race from DC Comics.

Press Release:

In celebration of Batman Day, BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT: MASTER RACE co-writers Frank Miller (SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE) and Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS), along with artists Andy Kubert (NEW CHALLENGERS) and Klaus Janson (SUPERMAN), will be participating in a fan Q&A and signing at Barnes & Noble at Union Square on September 23.

Available September 13, BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT: MASTER RACE is a special, hardcover collected edition of the series that continued Frank Miller’s landmark DARK KNIGHT SAGA. BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT: MASTER RACE captures a world after the toppling of Lex Luthor and the apparent death of Batman himself. Who is left to save Gotham City and the rest of the world against the Master Race?

In celebration of Harley Quinn’s 25th Anniversary, this year the clown princess of crime is taking over DC’s annual Batman Day celebration. Co-created by acclaimed producers Paul Dini (DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY) and Bruce Timm (Batman Beyond), Harley Quinn first appeared on the hit Batman: The Animated Series in a September 1992 episode, “The Joker’s Favor.” Following her TV debut, Harley Quinn spawned the now popular comic series and is one of the fastest growing characters in DC history.

A purchase of BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT: MASTER RACE is required to attend the signing and fans may bring two additional items from home for the team to sign. Wristbands for the signing will be given out on a first come, first serve basis, starting at 9 a.m. on September 23.

Frank Miller Appears at Baltimore Comic Con 2017

Press Release:

You won’t want to miss the 2017 Baltimore Comic-Con, taking place September 22-24 at the Inner Harbor’s Baltimore Convention Center. The Baltimore Comic-Con is pleased announce the addition of Frank Miller for a Friday-only appearance at our 2017 event.

Frank Miller is a comic book writer and artist, a screenwriter, a film director, and a movie producer. Originally from just down the street in Olney, MD, Frank was raised in Montpelier, VT, and eventually found his way to New York City and the comic book industry in the late 1970s.

Finding work in Gold Key Comics initially, he went on to work with DC and Marvel. At the latter, after recurring fill-in and cover artist gigs, he took over art and, eventually, writing duties on Daredevil. He co-plotted the Wolverine limited series with Chris Claremont, and would continue working on titles (his own and those of the companies for which he worked) including Sin City, Ronin, Daredevil: Born Again, Elektra Lives Again, The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and 300. In addition to his comic book work, Miller wrote the scripts for Robocop 2 and 3, directed the film version of The Spirit, shared directing duties with Robert Rodriguez on the Palme d’Or-nominated Sin City and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and produced the film 300. Eagle-eyed viewers can spot him in cameo roles in Robocop 2, Daredevil, Sin City, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and The Spirit. Miller is known for creating Elektra for Marvel Comics’ Daredevil series, and a female version of the Robin character, Carrie Kelley, for DC Comics.

Miller will be appearing on Friday only, and a limited number of tickets are available for fan interaction during his appearance. To purchase tickets to the Baltimore Comic-Con and the Frank Miller events specifically, please see our tickets webpage.

Comics Legend Frank Miller Appears at Boston Comic Con 2016

Frank_Miller_DKR3-SQ

Press Release:

Boston Comic Con is thrilled to host celebrated creator FRANK MILLER in a rare convention appearance. Not only is this his only appearance in New England, but it’s also one of his only remaining appearances in the US this year.

This is an amazing opportunity for fans to meet one of the industry’s most significant talents. Miller’s seminal work on Batman and Daredevil redefined both characters and influenced an entire generation of creators. His independent titles Sin City and 300 have both been adapted to films.

Frank is appearing on Friday, August 12 only.

There are three special Frank Miller VIP Packages available each with unique art and autograph guarantee benefits. Click the link for further details.

Plus, Frank will be conducting two one-hour public signings with autographs available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Frank Miller is one of the most celebrated creators in comic book history, noted for combining film noir and manga influences in his comic art creations. Beginning with his run on Marvel’s Daredevil, during which he created the popular ninja assassin Elektra, Miller ushered in a darker, grittier vision of superheroes which paved the way for more mature themes to be explored in comic book form. His seminal work on Batman with The Dark Knight Returns and Year One continues to influence creators today and is sets the stages for the most recent films. His independent titles Sin City and 300 have both been adapted to movies, with Miller co-directing the latter alongside Robert Rodriguez. Most recently Miller has worked on All-Star Batman and Robin and currently is co-writing the third installment of Dark Knight Returns.

He joins a guest artist list of well over 80 of the world’s most talented comic book creators – a portfolio unmatched by any other comic book convention, in New England or elsewhere including Sam Kieth, Jae Lee, John Cassaday, Erik Larsen, Terry Dodson, Mike Allred, Greg Capullo, Adam Hughes, Arthur Adams, Amanda Conner, David Lloyd, Jimmy Palmiotti, Phil Jimenez, Scott Snyder, Mark Waid, Bernie Wrightson, Stan Sakai, and many more!

Media guests include William Shatner (Star Trek), Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy), Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who), Karl Urban (Star Trek Beyond),  Ben McKenzie (Gotham), John Barrowman (Arrow), Ciara Renee (Legends of Tomorrow), Robbie Amell (The Flash), Caity Lotz (Legends of Tomorrow), and more. Check the website for full details on exciting events!
