Check out some fresh black-and-white artwork for Frank Miller’s long-in-development “Holy Terror” one-shot, 109-page graphic novel, which is coming to a comic book shop near you this September. Originally called “Holy Terror, Batman!” (and originally a Batman comic book before it, well, wasn’t anymore), the comic is Miller’s reaction to the 9/11 attacks, and yes, was scheduled well over a decade ago. Well, a decade later and the comic is now scheduled to be published by Legendary Comics later this year. Will it meet that deadline? Hopefully, but given the comic’s history, I wouldn’t be surprised if it got pushed back. Hopefully not, but don’t be surprise if it happens.
The LATimes’ Hero Complex have published some artwork from “Holy Terror”, which sorta still looks like Batman, but, um, kinda not. Sort of. The hero is a costumed vigilante called The Fixer, who Miller calls “a two-fisted Dirty Harry type” and more “man of action” than the Detective that Batman is. And as you can see, he’s also got a feline-esque female sidekick.
Look for it this September. (Or not.)
