9781593072933: The Hard Goodbye (Sin City)

The first volume of the crime-comic megahit that introduced the now-infamous Marv and spawned a blockbuster film returns in a newly redesigned edition, with a brand-new cover by Frank Miller-some of his first comics art in years!

It's a lousy room in a lousy part of a lousy town. But Marv doesn't care. There's an angel in the room. She says her name is Goldie. A few hours later, Goldie's dead without a mark on her perfect body, and the cops are coming before anyone but Marv could know she's been killed. Somebody paid good money for this frame . . .

With a new look generating more excitement than ever before, this third edition is the perfect way to attract a whole new generation of readers to Frank Miller's masterpiece!

* Over a million Sin City books in print!

* New cover by Frank Miller!

* With Miller and codirector Robert Rodriguez gearing up for Sin City 2, this third edition is being released at just the right time!

* The Hard Goodbye was the lead story in the Sin City film, starring Mickey Rourke as Marv!

Review:

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.

Review:

www aintitcoolnews.com: " Dare I say the most perfect depictions of noir in illustrated literature form? yes indeedy..." The Guardian Guide, April 23-29 2005: " Graphic novels rarely get this graphic-in content or style."
