Cartoonists Respond to Frank Miller’s Anti-Occupy Rant [Webcomics]
Martha Washington Goes To War and Batman: Year One writer Frank Miller’s controversial remarks about the Occupy movement have inspired passionate response from members of the comic book community, mostly in the resoundingly negative. So intense was initial reaction to Miller’s tirade against the increasingly beleaguered protesters around the country — he called them “louts, thieves and rapists,” among other things — that fellow comics writer Mark Millar stuck his neck out for the the legendary Sin City author despite the fact that he didn’t even agree with Miller’s politics.
Naturally, criticism of Miller has also come in the form of comics. Ty Templeton, Richard Pace and Curt Franklin & Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again are among the creators whose admiration of Miller has been severely mitigated as a consequence of his unfortunate outburst (and perhaps also because of his prejudicial, anti-Muslim remarks and graphic novel). You can read their cartoon responses to Miller after the cut.
