Comics writer/creator Frank Miller will join the line-up of guests at the 2006 WonderCon comic book and pop culture convention to be held in San Francisco on February 10 through 12, 2006.
Frank Miller's 20-plus years in comics includes a variety of contributions including a run on Daredevil, in which he created the character Elektra. He rose to national prominence for his long-time association with Batman that includes the graphic novels The Dark Knight Returns, its sequel The Dark Knight Strikes Again, plus Batman Year One and the current title All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder.
Miller's own creation, Sin City, became a big-screen phenomenon last year, when the graphic novel series was adapted to a feature directed by Miller, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino. Sin City 2 is currently in the works and a movie adaptation of Miller's Spartan epic graphic novel, 300, is due out next year.
Frank Miller joins a guest list that includes artists Mike and Laura Allred, artist and Mad Magazine contributor Sergio Aragones, artists Chris Bachalo, and Frank Cho, writers Peter David, and Mark Evanier, artist Ramona Fradon, creators Erik Larsen, Mike Mignola, and Terry Moore, writer Grant Morrison, creator Eric Powell, writer Greg Rucka, comics writer and film director Kevin Smith, writer Mark Waid, and cartoonist Gahan Wilson.
