This gritty and gripping collection of urban pulp fiction from writer/artist Frank Miller's multi-award-winning "Sin City" saga introduces an all-new cast, while skilfully interweaving the action with glimpses of other stories set in the seedy metropolis. Meet Lieutenant John Hartigan, one hour left on the force and one case left to close...'Junior', a sick, spoilt brat with a powerful senator for a father, a kidnapped eleven year-old girl in his grasp, and a taste for rape and murder. Hartigan's last day on the force, his last case. He's going out with bang! This 'mature readers' collection features extreme violence, nudity, and swearing.

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.About the Author:
