Frank Miller (born January 27, 1957) is an American writer, artist and film         
director best known for his film noir-style comic book stories. He is one of the   
most widely-recognized and popular creators in comics, and is one of the most       
influential comics creators of his generation.                                     
Miller was born in Olney, Maryland and raised in Montpelier, Vermont. Miller was   
a comic fan from an early age. Setting out to become an artist, he eventually       
received his first published work in Twilight Zone literature The Twilight Zone     
for Gold Key Comics in 1978. This was followed by various pencilling work for       
anthology titles from DC Comics and his first work at Marvel Comics in Barsoom     
John Carter: Warlord of Mars #18. It was at Marvel that Miller would settle in     
as a regular fill in and cover artist, working on a variety of titles. One of       
these jobs was drawing Spectacular Spider-Man #27 and 28. These issues featured     
Daredevil as a supporting character. At this time Daredevil was a minor             
character with his own poor selling title; however, Miller saw something in the     
character he liked and asked then Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter if he could   
work on Daredevil's regular title. Shooter agreed and made the decision to make     
Miller the new penciller on the title.
