In 1986, Miller created a true classic: The Dark Knight Returns, which set the standard not only for Batman but for the entire industry. Written and illustrated by Miller, it is an amazing piece of work. Miller also wrote Year One, my personal favorite Batman story, and has done famous work on Daredevil. He now writes and draws Sin City. Each project of his successfully expands the realms and genres available to comics, such as 300, a beautiful epic of the Polyponesian war. His work is bold, iconographic, and filled with strong, contrasting shapes and lines.
Unfortunately, his recent stuff is pretty awful, like Dark Knight Strikes Again.
