Frank Miller Launches an Independent Publishing Company with Dan DiDio as publisher
In rather unexpected news, Frank Miller is launching a new publishing banner called Frank Miller Presents. Miller will act as president and editor-in-chief with a focus on a curated line of comics that captures Miller’s style from a range of talent. In the works for months, the line will launch with new Sin City and Ronin.
Dan DiDio will join the venture as publisher while Silenn Thomas, the CEO of Frank Miller Ink, will serve as COO of FMP. DiDio was formerly co-publisher of DC comics from 2010 to 2020
The line’s goal is to publisher two to four titles a year which will be a mix of Miller’s creations as well as new works.
Announced so far is Sin City 1858 which takes Sin City and places it in a Western tale as well as Ronin Book Two, a follow-up to the six issue mini-series that was originally published by DC in 1983 and 1984 and focused on a ronin reincarnated in a bleak future. New titles announced include Pandora and Ancient Enemies.
No details have been released as to the creative teams on the projects.
The first release is expected later this year with Miller’s back catalog remaining with their original publishers.
