About the Author
Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s and rose to fame while drawing and then writing Daredevil for Marvel Comics. He was also the creative force behind Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, and Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again. His works have not only redefined classic characters, but also revitalized the comics industry on a few occasions. His multi-award-winning graphic novel 300 was brought to full-blooded life in the 2007 movie of the same name. His creator-owned crime saga Sin City first hit the page in 1991, and then the silver screen in 2005, with Miller on board as co-director with Robert Rodriguez. The two returned to direct the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, released in 2014 and featuring two new stories by Miller. In 2015, Miller returned to his bestselling series with the highly anticipated Dark Knight III: Master Race. Jim Lee is a renowned comic book artist and the Co-Publisher of DC Entertainment. Prior to his current post, Lee served as Editorial Director, where he oversaw WildStorm Studios. Lee was also the artist for many of DC Comics' best-selling comic books and graphic novels, including All-Star Batman And Robin, The Boy Wonder, Batman: Hush and Superman: For Tomorrow. He also served as the Executive Creative Director for the DC Universe Online (DCUO) massively multiplayer action game from Sony Online Entertainment (SOE). With writer Geoff Johns, Lee drew the flagship title of DC Comics--The New 52, Justice League.
