    Well, yeah--mostly opinions here. I don't care for the art, either. And I'm quite wary of Miller in general after The Spirit debacle.

    GrampŠís art is interesting. Itís easy to see why he was tapped for the project as his work looks Miller influenced already, but I canít tell anything from pin-ups. Anyone can do pin-ups, even Liefeld could do pin-ups. I want to see his storytelling.
    Expectation is the death of discovery.

    There are a couple of sequential page previews in the EW first look article here: https://ew.com/books/2019/09/13/fran...den-child/amp/ same previews at CBR as well... https://www.cbr.com/frank-miller-raf...hild-announce/

    a few other points to clear up some misconceptions in some posts-

    -this is a one-shot from DC's Black Label, not a mini, so no trade waiting, there is nothing to wait to be collected.

    -interiors and covers are by Grampa, Miller is one of a handful of people doing variant covers for the book, but the main cover is by Grampa. Other variants will be by Paul Pope, Joelle Jones and Andy Kubert.

    -Miller is still doing art, he did the Xerxes series, a 300 sequel for Dark Horse a year or two ago, and is doing the illustrations for a novel about the legend of Nimue and Excalibur called cursed written by Thomas Wheeler coming out in October from Simon & Shuster (already set to be a Netflix series in 2020).

    I think his art looks cool. It is certainly stylized, but I don't get the "no substance" part...

    I have never understood the allure of Miller and I view his work largely as cliche, this is probably due to the many imitators he seemed to inspire in the 1990s.

    I didn't bother reading DKIII, because I have felt Miller has moved past super heroes, but continues to take DC's money. Since he now looks down his nose at them, he rips them apart and laughs all the way to the bank. That's my interpretation of his mainstream work since at least Daredevil: The Man Without Fear, anyway.
