twilightthunder's Ronin #1 review

Avatar image for twilightthunder

Weird ending, yet, amazing.

This is regarded as a milestone in the comicdom, due to it's "date-wise" Improved style of inking, coloring and printing, i read it sometime ago but i still remember clearly those panels, Mad Max-like, decadent yet heroic, Frank Miller knew what he was doing back in those days (now he just sucks) DC published some real stuff back in the 80s when Julius Schwartz was the VP editor-in-chief. Ronin is quite long and dense, immersive due to it's drawing style, Lynn Varley was in tip-top shape when she decided to color this graphic novel. (now, read Dark Knight Strikes Again and you'll watch some of the most horrifying panels ever colored) Ronin is about late revenge, honor and dishonor merged with a dystopic future setting Miller is famous for. (E.G. Dark Knight Returns)

    Frank Miller's other, other good work. 0

    Out of all of Frank Miller's is either loved and considered pure genius (Daredevil, DKR, Year one...) or though to be so terrible it's not worthy of being used as toilet paper (DKSA, Holy Terror, All Star Batman). Before I even started to write this review I looked to see how much of Miller's work I have read, and the weird thing is, I have actually read most of it. My only real omissions are Sin City, and his Elektra with Sienkiewicz. That's both a pleasant surprise and rather perplexing since...
