"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
But that doesn’t mean the project is quite dead — only different. David Brothers points out a recent post by Miller at the Complete Frank Miller Website Forum, where he says the project has undergone a bit of a change — there’s no Batman in it:
I’m still doing HOLY TERROR!–it’s just not a Batman story anymore. The content got too extreme, and a brand new superhero popped into my head. I’m 94 double-page spreads into it, with more to go. It’s going to be big and loud, I promise.
Neal Adams has fallen so in love with ODYSSEY that he’s scripting it himself. The artwork is STUNNING.
I’ve just turned in XERXES#1 and am going strong.
I’m keeping busy, folks! Having a great time!
Xerxes is the follow-up to 300 that was announced late last year.
