Miller's increasingly become a parody of some of the figures he used to parody in his earlier works. His work has long ago jumped the shark also, some of his latest work for DC comics is jaw-dropping awful and you at times wonder is he serious or is deliberately satirising himself. I am thinking in particular of his recent return to Batman which has seen Batman engaging in child abuse and rough sex with anothe r female character in between bouts of telling us he is the 'God-damned Batman'.
He has become increasingly right wing, which would be no problem if right wing meant reasoned and logical but much of his views on these blogs are consistent with other rants he has come out with. He has some points even in this rant worth considering, but because he (as others have said) issues a massively sweeping statement it's hard to take him seriously. Also getting out the water cannon because people present points of view we disagree with? I shudder to read people saying that here.
I DO agree that, while I agree with some of Miller's opinions, he DOES resort to simplistic. one-dimensional "kill them all" thoughts most of the time. Witness Sin City and 300. I DO agree with some of hi thoughts regarding the war on terror, though.
Great comics genius----------------just do NOT be looking for a great philosopher in his works.
Or subtlety. :shrug::blush:
