SDCC ’11 | Legendary reveals trailer for Frank Miller’s Holy Terror

Legendary Comics, the comic-publishing arm of Legendary Pictures, has revealed a new trailer for Frank Miller’s upcoming graphic novel Holy Terror. The project began as a “Batman vs. al-Qaeda” book for DC Comics before Miller eliminated Batman from it in favor of a new character called The Fixer, who you can see in action in the trailer.

The book will be published this September to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The trailer was revealed by Legendary as the “first of four locks” being opened, and they ask fans to help open additional locks by sharing content on Facebook and Twitter. “This was the first of four locks that will reveal exclusive content throughout the weekend, so be sure to check back regularly. Remember, the more you spread the word, the faster each reveal will be released!”

First line of copy”When the streets are filled with fear…”

True Meaning: “”When the streets are filled with Frank Miller…”

Doesn’t look bad. It does seem like more of a salvage at this point. I don’t know if it will be worth reading if the original character isn’t Batman and Catgirl. We know Frank can still draw , but can he still write a compelling story anymore? It’s been over 10 years since he’s written anything that has been universally praised.

I wonder how long before someone accuses Frank of mysogeny in the comments section…there’s always that one person…

LOLOLOLOLOL, oh man Frank Miller. This was an end to an amazing night.

Always good for a laugh.

“We know Frank can still draw , but can he still write a compelling story anymore? It’s been over 10 years since he’s written anything that has been universally praised.”

Uh, it’s been a LOT longer than that since Frank has demonstrated that he can do either of those things. If you think 300 was “universally praised,” you obviously weren’t around in 1998…

Ah, sweet, sweet violence. If only there were some way to get the actual comic book to make those machine-gun sounds while you read it.

As a family member of 9/11 I think I should get a free copy!!
I have been waiting on this book, I’m just a little put off that it’s not Batman like he wanted it to be.

@Paul

If you think “universally praised” equals quality – then you don’t know much about quality – whether it be in comics, movies, music or so on

Jesus, Miller’s art really is horrible these days.

Yeah, the art is terrible. When you look at how gorgeous the first Sin City book was, it’s sad to see such rushed, weak lineart. Has he forgotten how to do good finishes, or does he just not care?

oy vey. i thank DC for having the good judgement to pass on this dreck. if there was only a way we could clone the frank miller from the mid 80s and have him usurp the current hack sullying his once good name…

I was especially looking forward to this when it was still a Batman story (I like Miller’s Batman, warts and all), but I’m still anticipating it. I still want to see the pages he did with Batman (he had a good portion done before changing the hero).

Yeah, the art looks awesome! Farson and Fred, you are obviously trolling, please stop it. Same with you, Johnnie5

Can’t Wait!

Allow me to troll even further and say that I don’t see that much difference between Miller’s mid-80s work and his work today. They both strike me as a batch of half-baked, over-the-top ideas thrown together with some ham-fisted attempts at satire. It was just more novel then.

Umm… the streets may be filled with fear but I’m pretty sure its more of a “I may get mugged, robbed or raped by homegrown criminals and gangs from neighboring countries.” fear. I don’t lock my door at night because of Al-Queda.

This series brought to you buy a six-pack of whiteout used to omit pointy ears and bat symbols.

“Allow me to troll even further and say that I don’t see that much difference between Miller’s mid-80s work and his work today. “That makes sense. I think what’s happened is that the intelligensia segment of the comics community, the segment most vocal among the comics community, has grown tired or bored with Frank. Frank’s worldview isn’t very…………….cosmopolitan, which is an anathema to some.

That’s right, Frank’s just too blue-collar and down-to-earth for us snooty, pinky-in-the-air types to appreciate.

@Jeff: In that case i sure hope Iraq has a Frank Miller.

Miller was always crap and appealing to dumb bigots

Nothing new.
