First of all, Happy New Year to all! Hope ya'll have a good start to 2020 and your future endeavors.

As requested by @vishop_, Today's Rate The Comic Book artist segment features a well known name in the comic book industry known as Frank Miller. Though more well known for his work as a writer than artist, Miller is known for writing and drawing a number of his works such as the acclaimed Batman story known as the The Dark Knight Returns, the crime anthology saga known as Sin City, the graphic novel based on The Battle Of Thermopylae known as 300 and parts of his Daredevil run. Miller's art style is very distinctive and easily recognizable among his peers.

Happy New Year and Thank You :D

8.5.His neo noir comics are awesome. I loved his Sin City. He is generally a great artist too but his art tends to get weird or grotesque occasionally.

Not my cup of tea really. I sometimes think his art might look tolerable enough and a good fit depending on the story but that doesn't happen often. A 5 for me.

7, he has an interesting style even if it isn't as detailed and impressive as other artists' works.

Right on! Happy New Year. I hope you're having a great day.

8/10

This was the toughest one to rate because his 80s work is amazing but his more recent works can go beyond gritty into ugliness.

A 5. I respect what he's done, and when his art works, it works well. But sometimes his art can look unforgivably clunky.

4/10. His art is pretty ugly and his writing has aged TERRIBLY. He had a massive fall from grace after a few good titles which tells me either he got lazy or his editors stopped correcting him because of his rep.

Whilst Frank Miller is indeed one of the best comic book writers of all time, his art is.....questionable.

The way Frank draws faces is honestly bad, and his action sequences are just disappointing. The only reason why I really give him a 6 is because of his more iconic panels. Otherwise he'd be a 5 or even 4.

@vishop_: Of modern comics, sure. Of all-time, it's either Curt Swan or John Byrne.

I gave him an 8/10. Daredevil, Wolverine, and Sin City was his best work as an artist, imo. I wasn't a fan of a lot of his later work, though. It was like he tried to translate the blocky style from Sin City to superhero comics, and it didn't work out too well.
