Here’s a great storyline for a comic book: A former beauty queen versus the girlfriend of her boss in a hell-like office set-up.
Coincidentally, this thing happened in real life inside the company of the legendary comic book writer Frank Miller, whose 1986 Batman comic series “The Dark Knight Returns” is considered revolutionary.
The protagonists are Joanna Gallardo Mills, a former beauty queen and actress from the Philippines, and Miller’s much-younger partner Kimberly Cox.
In a report from New York Post, Gallardo-Mills, 41, says Cox, smeared her work area with feces, destroyed her printer with a hammer, threw phones at her, and even left a used feminine hygiene pad by her desk.
Gallardo-Mills went to work for Miller as an executive coordinator in November 2008 and said it wasn’t long before there were problems with Cox.
The Filipina beauty, now living with his American husband Eric Scot, is seeking unspecified money damages from both Miller and Cox for discrimination and “mental anguish.”
Miller’s has kept mum on this issue as of this writing.
