True Crime

by Frank Miller
Frank Miller's noir tales of the town without pity begin here.
Dark Horse Comics
ISBN: 1878574590
SIN CITY launched the long-running, critically acclaimed series of comics novels by Frank Miller. Having worked on some of the most important comic books in the 1980s, including Marvel Comics's Daredevil and the influential Batman graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, Miller was already a heavy-weight cartoonist, but he hit his stride with Sin City. It gave him the freedom that doesn't come when working on someone else's characters. While the art isn't as polished as in later books, it is in many ways the quintessential Sin City story: tough-guy Marv finds the girl of his dreams, an incredible beauty named Goldie.
But when Goldie is murdered on their first night together, Marv scours the bars and back alleys of Sin City to find her killer in hopes of avenging her death. There's a big ugly guy and a dame that smells like angels ought to smell, in a lousy room in a lousy part of a lousy town. But that room becomes heaven and that dame's the perfect woman. The goddess. Goldie. A guy like Marv, big and ugly, he doesn't get a whole bunch of chances with dames like Goldie. So when he wakes up three hours later and someone's killed his goddess, he figures he'll find that someone and return the favor. But it won't be quick and quiet, the way it was with Goldie. It'll be loud and nasty.

Here's what the critics are saying...

“[Sin City] could well be a textbook on ways to handle dense, complex, heavy-line art with no shades of gray—a daring experiment, but one Miller’s well-capable of handling. Classic film fans and experimental comics fans alike will be eagerly awaiting for him to continue making this kind of magic.”

The Daily Iowan
“Frank Miller changed the comix world forever. His stories are told with a style that locks you into his world. His art is dark and foreboding, overflowing with passion. If you haven’t read anything by Frank Miller, do yourself a favor and get lost in Sin City.”
Spazz Magazine
About the Author
Frank Miller is perhaps the most highly regarded of cartoonists working today. He has won multiple Eisner Awards and a Reben Award form the prestigious National Cartoonist’s Society. After relaunching the Batman franchise with his graphic novel, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Frank Miller turned his attention to crime comics. The Sin City series is the result.

The second of Frank Miller's tales
of the town without pity.

It's one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things. Dwight's thinking of all the ways he's screwed up and what he'd give for one clear chance to wipe the slate clean, to dig his way out of the numb, gray hell that is his life. And he'd give anything just to cut loose, to feel the fire one more time. And then Ava calls.

Because of a shocking ending to the first Sin City book, many people wondered how successful Frank Miller could be with future tales of his no-holds-barred city noir. Enter Dwight McCarthy, a clean-living photographer who tries to avoid trouble because he knows what he's capable of. His tactics don't do him much good when a girl from his past (who he can't say no to) shows up and professes her love for him. When he finds out she's in way over her head, it looks as though trouble has found him.
What's going to happen? You guessed it: people get hurt.

With THE BIG FAT KILL, Frank Miller is at it again with another comics packed with guns, lovers, losers, and surprises. In Sin City's Old Town, the prostitutes run the show.
"The cops stay out. That leaves the girls free to keep the pimps and the mob out."
Sounds like an OK place, right? It is until a pushy, loud-mouthed guy who has had one too many drinks comes into Old Town and gets himself killed by the ladies. When they find out who he is, they realize that "it'll be war. The streets will run red with blood. Women's blood."

“re-invented his entire genre”
—SOMA, the magazine of Left Coast Culture
With only one hour left before his shield is finally put to rest, Hartigan begins to dream of lazy days and relaxation, but when he is told by his supervisor that one final case is still pending, Hartigan knows that his last hour will not be an easy one.
In a Sin City short story, "The Babe Wore Red," Frank Miller deviated from his stark black-and-white artwork by adding tiny bits of color throughout the story. The girl's dress was red, her lips were red--you get the picture. In THAT YELLOW BASTARD, the fourth Sin City graphic novel, Miller's experiment with yellow ink is also a tremendous success. The setup is simple. On the last day before he retires, Hartigan, an old cop, gets a call about an 11-year-old girl who has been kidnapped by a lunatic. Hartigan has got just one more thing to do before he retires: save the girl. Saving her is the easy part, because Hartigan has uncovered something really bad that is not going to stop until it catches up with him.  THAT YELLOW BASTARD is nerve-racking to the very end.

A Sin City Love Story
by Frank Miller & Lynn Varley
Paperback: 312 pages
Dark Horse Comics
ISBN: 1569714819
In the Town Without Pity, good men are hard to find. Enter Wallace, a man of mystery. He`s a nice guy who`s very good at killing people. Out for an evening drive along the beach, he meets the woman of his dreams -- and she`s trying to kill herself. Why? And who are the shadowy cabal of power brokers who wrench her from his arms? When will all hell break loose? Comics legend Frank Miller, creator of the groundbreaking Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, pounds out his longest Sin City graphic novel to date, a bare-knuckle barrage of brutal action, dark secrets, and heroic sacrifice.
What the hell -- it`s a love story! Includes color sections and pinups by a who`s who of comics luminaries, including Lynn Varley`s first actual comics illustration.
Can anything be darker than noir? Try Frank Miller's Sin City series. The tasty Hell and Back features Wallace, a brooding artist with a decided talent for hurting people, and Esther, a stunningly beautiful actress accidentally mixed up in a slavery ring that extends far and deep enough to transcend the word conspiracy. The tale twists, turns, and backtracks, teasing the reader with hints of terror to come--until the explosive climax. Miller's art is exactly right for his words; he uses more black than white, and color only when appropriate. The chapter dealing with Wallace's drug hallucinations is beautiful, heartbreaking, and terrifying in turn. Readers interested in the human dark side should find out what fans of Sin City already know: Frank Miller has seen it and wants to share.

--Rob Lightner
From Publishers Weekly
Wallace is a complicated guy. He's a shaggy, unshaven artist with a cool car and artistic integrity that makes it difficult for him to make a living as a commercial artist. He's also an ex-marine with a Congressional Medal of Honor for service in Vietnam. When he saves the mysterious, beautiful Esther from committing suicide, it looks like the stage is set for a great romance. But there are mysterious forces with warped plans for Esther. This is a typical Frank Miller story, crammed with operatic drama, passion and stark violence and clearly influenced by classic crime fiction masters like Raymond Chandler. And while the cars and architecture are straight out of the '50s, Wallace's slacker wardrobe (Converse high-tops, long hair, trench coat) and high-powered weaponry all have a distinctly contemporary flavor. Those looking for sensitive investigations of love and character won't find them here: Miller's stories are over-the-top, high-tension pulp fiction, racheted up to farcical levels of frenzied violence and action. His drawings are spectacularly graphic and Varley's strategically placed color, amid Miller's rich black-and-white drawings, accents the book's stylish atmosphere of dread. All told, this is an important addition to the ultra-hard-boiled crime fiction genre.
