Read full description of the books King Size Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot:This kind of ultra-detailed fantasy romp would be wonderful and fun and zoom bang pow, if only Frank Miller hadn't come out as an authentic fascist during the grim Bush years. (Side note: apparently only the Germans are the only ones to have figured this out, if Google's autofill results are to be believed: "frank miller faschismus." And, Jesus, if it's the Germans who are calling you fascist...)
Geoff Darrow's work, of course, is brain-breaking. It's completely unclear how a human being does what he does with his hands. Fields of giant monster scales, city blocks exploding as all the humans within it morph into monster minions, every wrinkle and crinkle and chunk of debris rendered with just ludicrous detail, every crumple of metal, every bullet shell, all in ridiculous copious amounts -- it's a steroidal pleasure for anyone who loves comic art, especially in this oversized edition.
But the nostalgia for mid-century design and over-the-top American go-getter dialogue becomes instantly suspect in the shadow of drek like 300. That pall forces a reader to go back to other Miller work and question all its alleged merits. You revisit Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and ask whether all the self-consciousness and layered ideas about the limits of superhero morality weren't the reader's imposition, whether the author wasn't more sincere and less ambiguous than we thought he was. You think about Commissioner Gordon's monologue about how FDR was "strong and sure," but that he may have known Pearl Harbor was coming, and that FDR was "too big" to question or doubt. Zoiks.
It's pretty difficult to assign innocence to a guy who aligned himself with the neocons when the time for thoughtful moral stances were here. It's difficult to think of the infantalized Japanese relying on the Americans as just goofy or cute, to think of the big patriotic proclamations by the bomb-wielding super-patriot robot as self-aware. You feel a need to keep a bigoted thug further and further away from kids and kids' genres and the dialogue loses any ironic charm it might have had.
