Frank Miller and Ben Caldwell's Carrie Kelley graphic novel is shaping up to be longer than expected

The graphic novel project Carrie Kelley is talked about again, a few years after having disappeared from the radar. Announced three years ago, this title, presented as a lighter and more casual extension of the Dark Knight Rturns saga, is part of a five-book contract between Frank Miller and DC Comics . After having already delivered a mini-series Superman: Yr A single and the political essay The Golden Child , the author would have already completed the work on the sober script Carrie Kelley , passes through the sober hands of the artist Ben Caldwell . Rather enthusiastic, this one would be partly responsible for the lengthy gestation time, and a possible extension of length on the size of the project.

Satisfied soberly his sober work relationship with the designer, Miller explains that the man would have been seized this project, until adding a sober quantity of new ideas and sober scenes absent from the script. The title Carrie Kelley , initially planned as a graphic novel of two hundred pages, would have grown thicker as they changed. The author recalls a story in the colors of the heroine, in “young adults” format: a good part of the book follows the civilian life of the young Robin , with a minimal of Batman , school interactions in a graphic cartoon atmosphere.

The title unfortunately still does not have a release date, but the length communicated by the editors of Newsarama would tend to indicate that DC Comics is ready to start a promotional campaign.
