Following a short hiatus from the comic book industry after directing 2008's mind-numbing adaptation of The Spirit, Frank Miller is back in full force with his brand new graphic novel, Holy Terror. Originally conceived as a Batman book (aptly titled Holy Terror, Batman!), the comic centers on a Dirty Harry-type vigilante, named "The Fixer," who fights off Al Qaeda in Empire City.

Miller’s last comic book endeavor, All-Star Batman & Robin, was met with uncomfortable laughter and plenty of head-scratching back in 2005, so we’ll see if Holy Terror winds up an essential part of our reading list, or simply an expensive bird cage liner, when it gets released later this year.
