Previous Post

Hard Boiled.
Give Me Liberty/Martha Washington.
Sin City.
RoboCop 2 and 3.

Which of the above were your favorites? Which were the most influential? Do you wish one, some, or all of these had been LESS influential? Did I miss any of Frank's key accomplishments during our era?

He made the dark brooding tone more popular in comics. The trouble with that is, there are a lot of characters for whom the dark brooding tone is wrong. His work influenced Zack Snyder in what turned out to be for the worse.

Even with Daredevil he seems to have had too much influence. This isn't really his fault, but after he left DD, the only Daredevil characters writers seemed willing to explore that weren't their own, were the Frank Miller ones. Having stories based just on Kingpin, Electra, Bullseye and Punisher got old before long.
