Setting out to become an artist, he eventually received his first published work in The Twilight Zone for Gold Key Comics in 1978. This was followed by various pencilling work for anthology titles from DC Comics and his first work at Marvel Comics in Barsoom John Carter: Warlord of Mars #18. It was at Marvel that Miller would settle in as a regular fill in and cover artist, working on a variety of titles. One of these jobs was drawing Spectacular Spider-Man #27 and 28. These issues featured Daredevil as a supporting character. Daredevil is a Fictional character that appears in Comic books published by Marvel Comics. At this time Daredevil was a minor character with his own poor selling title; however, Miller saw something in the character he liked and asked then Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter if he could work on Daredevil's regular title. Shooter agreed and made the decision to make Miller the new penciller on the title.
Miller's first issue of Daredevil (#158) was the last part of an ongoing story written by Roger McKenzie. Roger McKenzie is an American Comic book writer Titles he has contributed to include Battlestar Galactica ( Marvel Comics; 1979 Although still conforming to traditional comic book styles, Miller infused this first issue with his own film noir style which proved to be a success. Film noir is a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize moral ambiguity and sexual motivation After this issue Miller became one of Marvel's fastest rising stars and also started plotting additional stories with McKenzie. Miller's art was highly detailed but still retained his noir style as his run progressed. Learning from Neal Adams, Miller would sit for hours sketching the roofs of New York in an attempt to give his Daredevil art an authentic feel not commonly seen in superhero comics at the time. Neal Adams (born June 6, 1941, Governors Island, Manhattan, New York City) is an American Comic book and New York ( is a state in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern regions of the United States and is the nation's third most populous Miller was so successful with the title that Marvel began publishing the Daredevil comic monthly (as opposed to its previous bi-monthly publication period). From issue 168 in 1981, Miller took over full duties as writer and penciller with Klaus Janson providing inks in the issues. Klaus Janson (born 1952 is an American Comic book artist working regularly for Marvel Comics and DC Comics. This issue saw the first appearance of Elektra. Elektra Natchios, usually referred to only by her first name Elektra, is a Fictional character in publications from Marvel Comics.
With his creation of Elektra, Miller's work on Daredevil became characterised by darker themes and stories heavily influenced by Japanese manga strips.

AssassiNation is the sixth album by Krisiun, released in 2006 on Century Media. Bullseye is a Fictional character, a Supervillain in the Marvel Comics universe. Although deaths of supporting characters were commonplace in comics at the time, a death of a major character like Elektra was not. Miller made it clear with the next few issues that he intended Elektra to remain dead but nonetheless she was revived during his time as writer. Miller finished his Daredevil run with issue 191; in his time he had transformed a secondary Marvel character into one of the most popular and best-selling characters Marvel published. Due to Daredevil's popularity, Miller became one of the most sought after artists in the industry.
During this time, Miller and writer Chris Claremont had produced a four part Wolverine mini series in 1982, spinning off from the popular X-Men title. Chris Claremont (born November 30, 1950) is a writer of American Comic books known for his 16-year (1975-1991 stint on Uncanny X-Men The X-Men is a team of fictional Superhero characters in Comic books published by Marvel Comics. Miller used this title to expand on Wolverine's character while featuring more of his manga-influenced art. The series was a critical success and further cemented Miller's place as a major artist. Miller also found time to draw a short Batman Christmas story for a DC Comics Christmas special. Batman (originally referred to as the Bat-Man and still referred to at times as the Batman) is a fictional Comic book Superhero co-created This was his first encounter with a character with which, like Daredevil, he would become closely associated.
Miller rounded out this time with The Elektra Saga (a four-part mini-series largely consisting of material previously published in his Daredevil run, telling of the life and death of Elektra), and Ronin for DC Comics, his first creator-owned title. Creator ownership is an arrangement in which the creator or creators of a work of fiction retain full ownership of the material regardless of whether it is self-published or Ronin was a six-issue mini series first published by DC from 1983 to 1984. With Ronin, Miller not only refined his own art and storytelling techniques, but also helped change how creator rights were viewed, and proved that comics in new formats could be commercially viable. Ronin was also his most clearly manga-influenced title, drawing mainly from the black and white Lone Wolf and Cub series. is a well-known Gekiga or Manga created by the writer Kazuo Koike and the artist Goseki Kojima. After Ronin, Miller was relatively reclusive in 1985; his only published work was a single issue of Daredevil (issue 219), inspired by the film High Plains Drifter. High Plains Drifter is a 1973 Revisionist Western film with a hint of supernatural horror directed by and starring Clint Eastwood.
In 1986 DC Comics released the first issue of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (commonly shortened to DKR), a four-issue mini-series printed in the new prestige format, and written and drawn by Miller, with colors by Lynn Varley and inks by Klaus Janson.

The story tells how Batman retired after the death of the second Robin, and at age 55 returns to fight crime in a future where crime and violence have taken over.

Watchmen is a twelve-issue Comic book Limited series written by Alan Moore, and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and John Higgins Receiving massive amounts of media publicity, Miller found that he had not only redefined Batman in comics, but had managed to remove the campy image many had of the character from the 1960s television series. Batman is a 1960s American Television series, based on the DC Comic book character of the same name.
DKR influenced the comic book industry by heralding a new wave of darker, more 'realistic' characters in comics, and along with Batman: The Killing Joke, it was also a major influence on Tim Burton's Batman in 1989. Batman The Killing Joke is an influential one-shot Superhero Comic book written by Alan Moore and drawn by Brian Bolland Timothy "Tim" William Burton (born August 25 1958 is an American Film director, Screenwriter and Set designer, notable for the quirky Batman is a 1989 Superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name.

Superman is a fictional Comic book Superhero widely considered to be one of the most recognized of such characters and an American Cultural icon
1986 also saw Miller return to Daredevil with artist David Mazzucchelli, creating a story arc that, like DKR, redefined and reinvigorated its main character. David Mazzucchelli (born 1960 is an American Comic book artist and Illustrator.

A cyborg is a Cybernetic Organism ( ie, an organism that has both artificial and natural systems Both of these projects were well received critically, Elektra: Assassin was praised for its bold storytelling, but neither had the influence or reached as many readers as Dark Knight Returns or Born Again.
Miller's final major story in this period was in Batman issues 404-407 in 1987, another collaboration with Mazzuchelli. Titled Batman: Year One, this was Miller's version of the origin of Batman in which he retconned many details and adapted the story to fit his Dark Knight continuity.

Nobody questions why after Pearl Harbor we attacked Nazi Germany. It was because we were taking on a form of global fascism, we're doing the same thing now. " In his view, America lacks firmness against an enemy that he did not name: "It seems to me quite obvious that our country and the entire Western World is up against an existential foe that knows exactly what it wants. . . and we're behaving like a collapsing empire. Mighty cultures are almost never conquered, they crumble from within. And frankly, I think that a lot of Americans are acting like spoiled brats"
