I used to work for Frank Miller's old editor at Dark Horse. I don't think you realize how much he's done to change comics. He revived Daredevil and totally revolutionized superhero genre bending He started the whole Wolverine-cum-samurai deal with chris claremont He revived batman with TDK and then hilariously deconstructed it with ASBARTBW Big Guy and Rusty The Boy Robot and Hard Boiled with Geoff Darrow were both totally amazing TDKSA which was an awesome celebration of superheroes that was entirely misunderstood. It's better off as being thought of as more of a Kingdom Come, rather than a TDKII I agree. Born Again is one of the best story lines of all time. I enjoyed the Batman stuff when I was younger... but i have since lost interest. The Daredevil work is his best overall IMO.
