Rejoin the grim and gritty world of Sin City with this second installment of Frank Miller's beautifully rendered black and white crime noir tale. It's one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things. Dwight's thinking of all they 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 grey hell that is his life. And he'd give anything. Just to cut loose. Just to feel the fire. One more time...and then Ava calls. This 'mature readers' collection features violence, nudity and swearing. Sin City is now a hotly-anticipated movie, set for an early 2005 debut! Directed by Robert Rodriguez (Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Spy Kids) and Sin City and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns creator Frank Miller, the film stars an incredible line-up of talent. The Sin City cast includes Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Hartnett, Jessica Alba, Brittany Murphy, Elijah Wood, Clive Owen, Jaime King, Michael Madsen, and Mickey Rourke as the iconic Marv!

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.About the Author:
Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s, first drawing then writing Daredevil for Marvel Comics, creating what was essentially a crime comic disguised as a superhero book. It was on Daredevil that Miller gained notoriety, honed his storytelling abilities, and took his first steps toward becoming a giant in the comics medium.
After Daredevil came Ronin, a science-fiction samurai drama that seamlessly melded Japanese and French comics traditions into the American mainstream; and after that, the groundbreaking and acclaimed Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Batman: Year One, both of which not only redefined the classic character, but also revitalized the industry itself.
Finally able to fulfill his dream of doing an all-out, straight-ahead crime series, Miller introduced Sin City in 1991. Readers responded enthusiastically to Miller's tough-as-leather noir drama, creating an instant sales success. His multi-award-winning 300 series from Dark Horse, a telling of history's most glorious and underreported battle, was brought to full-blooded life in 1998.
In 2001, Miller returned to the superhero genre with the best-selling Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again.
Frank Miller continues to push the medium into new territories, exploring subject matter previously untouched in comics, and his work consistently receives the highest praise from his industry peers and readers everywhere. In 2005, with the hugely successful Sin City movie release, co-directed with Robert Rodriguez, Miller added a director's credit to his already impressive resumé and introduced his characters to an entirely new legion of fans worldwide. The author lives in New York, N.Y..
