I wish I could just write Batman eating a sandwich. An editorial from Frank Miller.
You know, there's a lot of things people say about me, but I wrote one of the greatest Batman stories of all time, then over the years I became suddenly a crypto fascist who shows himself to have extreme problems with women. One of the main things, I don't think anybody talks about my simple desire to just write a whole graphic novel of Batman eating sandwiches. It's a dream I have late at night; it gives me cold sweats. My wife will see me running and I'll scream,
"No, I wish I could just see Batman batman down calmly eating a sandwich." It would be wonderful if he could just have a whole graphic novel to himself just relaxing around Wayne Manor in his p.j.s not having to do any of the Batman stuff. You know, just eating a sandwich. Possibly watching the news or reruns of The Office and just having a "me" day. My wife will scream to me, "Why do you care about this so much?" I'd say, "Just need to."
You know that's the wonderful hope I got in this world. Maybe later on he crushes the government and installs himself as a leader, but unquestioned ... But, up until that point, it would just be a nice day for Batman to do whatever Batman really feels like doing. He's deserves it. He does a lot of hard work.
