In this tale of a legendary warrior, the Ronin, a dishonored, masterless 13th Century samurai, is mystically given a second chance to avenge his master's death. But this time, it's in the 21st century. Frank Miller's post-apocalyptic graphic novel breakthrough is now released as a part of DC's prestigious new imprint of standalone graphic novels, DC Black Label.
Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s and rose to fame while first drawing, and then writing, Daredevil for Marvel Comics. He was also the creative force behind Batman- The Dark Knight Returns, Batman- Year One and Batman- The Dark Knight Strikes Again. His many works have not only redefined classic characters, but also, on a few occasions, revitalized the comics industry. His multi-award-winning graphic novel 300 was brought to full-blooded life in the 2007 motion picture of the same name, and in 2008 he directed the feature film Will Eisner's The Spirit. His creator-owned crime saga Sin City first hit the page in 1991, and then the silver screen in 2005, with Miller on board as co-director with Robert Rodriguez. The two returned to direct the sequel Sin City- A Dame to Kill For, released in 2014 and featuring two new stories by Miller. In 2015, Miller returned to his best-selling series with the highly anticipated Batman- The Dark Knight- Master Race.
"Beautiful, ambitious and complex." --Rolling Stone
"A successful work of fusion, bringing together the tone and sci-fi weirdness of European comic magazines like Metal Hurlant... alongside Japanese manga and '60s Kurosawa samurai-eiga." --MTV Geek "His brutal yet elegant noir renderings, pulpy yet eloquent scripting, and thoroughly uncompromising attitude make [Frank Miller] one of the most distinctive voices in comics." --Entertainment Weekly
