Personal Quote:

I was always into noir. When I lived in Vermont I was drawing stuff that looked like an amateur doing 'Sin City'. When I first got to New York I was swiftly informed that they only did guys in tights. See more »

Trivia:

He claimed in the introduction to "The Dark Knight Returns" that he got the idea of writing of a Batman in his mid 60s from a age crisis he had. He "could stand that his little brother was older than Spider-Man, but that he himself getting older than Batman, was something that had to be stopped." He was 29 years old, closing up on 30, writing "The Dark Knight Returns." See more »

Trademark:

Often features characters with a physical or mental affliction. Both Miho and Kevin from Sin City are mute, whilst Marv's mother, Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Stick and Manute are all blind. Both Sin City's Hartigan and Batman in Dark Knight Returns suffer heart problems. See more »
