One of the favorite guests at the recent New York Comic-Con was no doubt Frank Miller, the long admired comic book creator who is now renowned for the story of how Sin City was brought to the silver screen despite more than a decade of insistence that he would never allow such to happen.* After the nothing short of brilliant translation to film, Miller's works enjoyed renewed admiration and attention. In a Q and A at the Con, Miller cut loose an a number of subjects, particularly the nature of comic books and the comic book sub culture itself. When asked why comic books have become hot properties for the movie industry, Miller explained that the smaller scale of the comic book industry allows for a "more intimate way of expressing creativity," which gives them a "purity that movies can't approach." Miller also explained that comic books often "play out ancient themes that humans are wired to react to on some basic level."
