Why Frank Miller Shouldn't Direct The Spirit

The post says 12 Splash Pages to Convince You but considering the small size of the images you're not likely to be convinced unless you're already convinced. A Spirit movie seems like a really bad idea but then a new Eisner-less comic seemed like a bad idea as well but the current run as been a blast. The key was keeping some of the original's tone without trying to emulate it and DC hiring the right people; the trick with the movie is that by any reckoning Frank Miller is not the right people & has never displayed the open humanism and wide-eyed devotion to the form that Eisner and crew did.
