Frank Miller Developing WWII-Based DC Comics Project

It may not have received the attention the “Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2” trailer debut did, but Frank Miller’s announcement at CCXP 2016 is sure to get DC Comics fans talking.

During a panel featuring Miller, Paul Pope and Rafael Grampa, the Eisner Award winning cartoonist revealed plans for what he hopes will be his next DC project. “I have a fixation by World War II and I’m talking to DC on a project with their heroes at that time,” Omelete reports (via Google Translate).

Following a period where the writer/artist focused on his creator-owned work, Miller’s relationship with DC Comics has grown stronger over the year or so. He famously returned to his Dark Knight universe in 2016, joined by Brian Azzarello, Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson for “Dark Knight III: The Master Race,” and since then has made it clear that he not only has further ideas for the Batman-based franchise, but other DC characters as well.

Earlier this year, Miller expressed an interest in exploring Superman’s Jewish roots, a heritage the Man of Steel has due to his creators’ religion. “He has a history in World War II, and I’d like to put him there again,” Miller said. “Superman needs to confront his Jewish roots, and I’d like to write that. I’d like to have him face a death camp.”
