Miller has been the center of controversy and the hatred of a [[HateDom very vocal sector of the Internet population]], mostly due to his perceived over-representation of prostitutes, sadistic violence (seen as violence for the sake of it), and his libertarian and hawkish political views, although many people alternatively like his works [[TropesAreNotBad for exactly those reasons]]. Hence the [[BrokenBase fan conflicts]]. For instance, many people think his portrayal of prostitutes and female heroes implies a form of misogyny; '''''however''''', fans will point out that not only are said prostitutes portrayed as sympathetic and strongly independent characters, but that two of Frank's most famous creations are ComicBook/{{Elektra}} and [[ComicBook/GiveMeLiberty Martha Washington]].

'''Frank Miller''' (born 1957) is a comic book writer and artist, most famous for helping to popularize Batman's return to his dark and gritty roots. He specializes in gritty, over-the-top noir, and usually draws in an immediately recognizable style - replete with stark black-and-whites and often no color at all. Most of his work is narrated in first-person, usually by a macho SociopathicHero. Pretty much all of his work is incredibly violent and bloody, sometimes to the point of RefugeInAudacity. Could be described as the "Patron Saint of Badass." His heroes ''will'' be brutalized to the point of HeroicBSOD, but they will also ultimately prove that a single [[RightMakesMight Righteous]] Badass is superior (or at least equal) to [[ConservationOfNinjitsu any number of evil mooks.]]

* Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}- Whatever Frank Miller did for Batman, he did twice over for Daredevil, or so the saying (roughly) goes. Introduced nearly all of the major elements we associate with the character today, apart from the costume, the blindness and [[ArchEnemy Bullseye]], though the latter got some defining moments under his run too. In his run, Miller created ComicBook/{{Elektra}} and The Hand, added Comicbook/SpiderMan nemesis Comicbook/TheKingpin as a new ArchEnemy, made Catholicism a fundamental part of the character of Matt Murdock, added a bigger focus on martial arts in the combat and brought a noir sensibility to the storytelling that's stayed with the series ever since. See ''Comicbook/DaredevilBornAgain'' for the magnum opus of the run.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The general opinion is it worked with the ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' and did not work sso well in ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'' some people have suspected that it's a StealthParody.

He's recently indicated he'd like to [[PlayingAgainstType go against type]] and tackle ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, exploring Cap's idealism contrasted with the dark post-9/11 world. Considering how his previous major use of the character (''ComicBook/DaredevilBornAgain'', ironically enough) had Miller write some of Cap's most memorable moments (and lines, such as the immortal "I'm loyal to nothing, General...except the Dream.")...that might not be too bad of an idea.
