When he’s not writing new graphic novels for Hollywood to snap up, “Sin City” creator Frank Miller has an unusual sideline: drawing for Thomas Pynchon.
Penguin Classics was redesigning its line of influential novels and asked Pynchon if he’d like a new jacket for his novel “Gravity’s Rainbow.” At first Pynchon resisted, says publicist Caroline Farrington. But he came back and said he’d allow it, on one condition: if Miller did the design.
Miller, at work on the Weinstein Co.’s “Sin City 2,” agreed. A new edition of the tome will be released in October.
