Frank Miller introduces The Fixer

Frank Miller has written some of the most influential Dark Knight books so far, they have been used a reffence in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight movies and the latest Dark Knight : Boy wonder is in comic limbo till next year.

Back in 2006 at WonderCon Frank Miller announced he wanted to take Batman into the real world and battle Al Quadea.

It is, not to put too fine a point on it, a piece of propaganda.. Superman punched out Hitler. So did Captain America. That’s one of the things they’re there for.

The story was criticised as it took a real life conflict into the pages of a popular comic. DC comic’s and Batman himself were later taken out of the equation and Miller is now introducing his new character The Fixer.

Last week at Comic con Miller was interviewed by the LA Times and has updated fans with the current status of the project.

It’s no longer a DC book. I decided partway through it that it was not a Batman story. The hero is much closer to “Dirty Harry” than Batman. It’s a new hero (The Fixer) that I’ve made up that fights Al Qaeda.

But who is The Fixer? Miller.

The character is called The Fixer and he’s very much an adventurer who’s been essentially searching for a mission.

He’s been trained as special ops and when his city is attacked all of a sudden all the pieces fall into place and all this training comes into play.

He’s been out there fighting crime without really having his heart in it – he does it to keep in shape. He’s very different than Batman in that he’s not a tortured soul. He’s a much more well-adjusted creature even though he happens to shoot 100 people in the course of the story.

Miller hasn’t signed the story to a publisher yet and hasn’t mentioned the possibility of a movie but with the success of Sin City and 300 it’s likely to be signed up for a film within a week or being published.

Thanks to LA Times for the news
