Frank Miller, creator of Sin City and Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again, described his new book Holy Terror as “a piece of propaganda” intended to represent a response to 9/11, the Independent reports.
The book was launched at the Comic-con conference in San Diego and will go on sale shortly after the 10-year anniversary of the attacks.
Its main character is called The Fixer, a superhero that is “well adjusted in committing terrible acts of violence on very evil people”.
Miller said the book was “a reminder that we’re in the midst of a long war” against Islamic extremism.
