Miller's Time

OooOO...Wizard published a quiz! They haven't done that for a while. And it's a quiz about everyone's favourite "sinner", the man who desecrated the Batman: Year One character in the modern era himself, having Batman swear and calling himself the "goddamn Batman", Frank Miller!

Don't peek at the answers...actually try it out first!

Think you know comic and Hollywood legend Frank Miller forwards and backwards? Then set your canvas to two-color and proceed, Gaijin.

SCORING: Give yourself one g--damn point for every g--damn correct answer.

This month we see how you match up against the coolest Franks of all time:

0-3, Franklin D. Roosevelt: Cool, but mostly in black and white, braugh.
4-8, Frank Zappa: Groovy man. But he’s given birth to some messed-up weirdos.
9-10, Frank Sinatra: The king of swing, baby. Frankly, it gets no better than this. many did YOU get correct?

First off, the quiz is completely crappy. Take question 6 for instance. The fricking answers are already listed there IN ORDER! I only knew the Bruce Willis one, but screw it, I answered the question the way they listed it and it was correct, so I'm getting that one correct.

And there's no fricking question 7! So I'm getting that one correct too.

Even with those two correct, I only got three others: Questions 4, 9 and 10. I'm SO not the Miller-phile...I really should have gotten Question 1 correct, but I haven't read All-Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder #2 for a long LONG time so there's no way I'd remember. Just like I should know the answer to Question 8, but once again, hadn't read that book for AGES.

Theo, you might get a kick out of this quiz, if you still came to this blog to read it, but you're probably too busy back in Singapore with all the stuff you need to do.

Anyway, here are the answers that Wizard Universe listed for the above quiz:

ANSWER KEY: 1. C; 2. B; 3. C; 4. B; 5. B; 6. 1B,2D,3A,4C; 7. Batman and Daredevil; 8. D; 9. A; 10. D
