Holy Terror: Frank Miller's 'Fixer' Takes On Jihad
by Mark Tapson
In an interview a month ago on FrontPage, cartoonist and FrontPage contributing artist Bosch Fawstin observed that "comics have been as truthless and as gutless as any corner of pop culture about Islam and Jihad since 9/11." After dismissing several comic books that promoted appeasement toward the threat of global jihad, Fawstin, whose own work fearlessly confronts that threat, concluded with a contrasting example:
Released two weeks after that interview, Miller's 120-page graphic novel Holy Terror so far seems to have prompted more indignation than inspiration. The English-language website The National, for example, based in the United Arab Emirates, reports that some critics are denouncing the book as "Islamophobic" – and then proceeds to provide those critics with a forum in which to slam Holy Terror unchallenged by an opposing point of view.
