Sketchbook: Powerpuff Girls, Frank Miller Style

There's a couple different comic covers that have made news fairly recently. But, really? It could be a lot worse than it is.

The first one I'm bringing up was done by Frank "Sin City" Miller. And boy, does it show.

How is that tail attached? Internet, do not answer that.
This piece is quite indicative of Miller's late period as a whole. And by that, I mean it's not that great. At best. (Flash Fact: This was not originally commissioned as a Detective Comics #27 cover, but was done for "All-Star Batman and Robin.")

Now, people started raising a fuss about this. Another cover people have been raising a fuss about was this one:

People have said that it's a bit of an... adult depiction of three preteen girls.

Well, I still like to think that we're living in the best of all possible worlds. Because Frank Miller didn't try to draw a Powerpuff Girls cover.

There's wrong, and there's wrong, and there's THIS.
See what a nasty bullet we've dodged? When I came up with this idea, I laughed out loud. When I finished, I felt bad for whatever parallel reality had Frank Miller working on the Powerpuff Girls. Anytime you despair about the modern comic book industry, just be glad that this never happened.

Amazons Attack, the Clone Saga, One More Day, Countdown, Secret Wars II, Ultimatum, the New 52; these all pale in comparison to the horror of Frank Miller drawing the Powerpuff Girls. Count your blessings.


  1. Damn, imagine if he got a hold of MLP. Though word has it Michael Bay's itching to get his hands on all of Hasbro's movie rights. If that's true, you'd have a mix of that above, with exploding cupcakes.

  2. ... No.


    Welp, there goes my sanity.
