Synopsis: Sin City TPB Written by: Frank Miller
Art by: Frank Miller
Cover by: Frank Miller
Frank Miller (Give Me Liberty, Hard Boiled, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) created a new noir opus in Sin City. The critically-acclaimed triumph - recently awarded the prestigious National Cartoonists' Award for Best Comic Book of 1992 - is now collected for the first time and features 18 new pages! Sin City combines the pulp intensity of writers like Spillane and Cain with the exciting graphic storytelling that only Miller and Dark Horse can deliver. Sin City is the place - tough as leather and dry as tinder. Love is the fuel and "Violent" Marv has the match. Watch it burn! Sin City makes a great gift for the holidays, so order accordingly. Cover by Miller.
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.
