Description

Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight #3 Clark Kent/Bruce Wayne Page 14 Original Art (DC, 1986). Universally acknowledged as one of the most important story arcs in modern comics, no great comic book art collection could be considered complete without a masterwork from Frank Miller's renowned Batman epic. The layout and storytelling in this page confirm Frank Miller's place among the world's finest storytellers, on a par with such giants as Bob Kane, Will Eisner, Jack Kirby, and Neal Adams. The contrast in attitude between DC's "twin icons," Superman and Batman, in their secret identities as Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne, is as stark as that of the brightest day and the darkest night. The image area of these tense scenes from "Hunt the Dark Knight" is 12" x 18". Aside from the typical four tape residue stains in the borders, and glue staining in panel four where an art correction stat had been glued over the original art (now revealed), the art is in Very Good condition. The removed production Photostat is also included with the lot, taped to the back of the page.

Miller, Frank:Frank Miller (American, b. 1957): is a multi-talented cartoonist, writer, and film director, most celebrated for his work on the Marvel characters Daredevil, Elektra, and Wolverine, as well as on his own characters for the Dark Horse titles Hard Boiled, 300, and Sin City. In the late eighties, Miler became the first and foremost of a new breed of "noir" comic book storytellers, thanks to the tremendous popularity of his work on the industry-changing Batman: The Dark Knight Returns series. He also directed the film version of Will Eisner's The Spirit, and shared directing duties with Robert Rodriguez on Sin City, and produced the film 300. .
