Legendary Comics launches with Frank Miller's 'Holy Terror'
Frank Miller’s “Holy Terror” will become the first graphic novel to be published through Legendary Entertainment’s comicbook label.
The 120-page hardcover, which features Miller’s signature black and white art, revolves around The Fixer, a new, hard-edged superhero as he battles terror. Title bows in bookstores Sept. 14 with a $29.99 pricetag. Diamond Books will distribute.
Miller’s credits also include “Sin City,” “300” and “The Dark Knight Returns.”
Legendary Comics launched last November, when Bob Schreck, a former editor at IDW, DC Comics and Oni Press, was tapped as editor-in-chief. He reports to Legendary chairman and CEO Thomas Tull.
At the time, division planned to publish four to six graphic novels a year for both digital and traditional print distribution — titles that can eventually be adapted into movies and TV shows.
Schreck had already been developing new ideas for books with Miller and other comicbook icons, including Neil Gaiman and Max Brooks.
Schreck described “Holy Terror” as “a fast paced, biting commentary on our uncertain and volatile times, told with some of the most gut-wrenching, iconic images (Frank Miller has) ever produced.”
