4.0 out of 5 stars The comics make the better artbook August 21, 2014
Format:Paperback
Length: 1:32 Mins
Here's a reprint of the first edition that came out more than 10 years ago. They have the same page number so the content should be the same, but don't quote me as I don't have the first edition.

This is a large 128-paperback artbook published by Dark Horse. The paper used are low gloss and thick, occasionally interspersed by matte red pages.

The book starts of with an introduction by R.C. Harvey who recounts the rise of Frank Miller and his art since the Daredevil days in late 1979. It's an interesting read, interesting enough that I hope one day there will be a Frank Miller artbook and biography.

The artworks featured are a selection of covers and pages from the various Sin City main and short stories. While most are actual finished artworks, there are also some preliminary pencil drafts, and layouts indicating areas to be inked. The red pages mentioned earlier shows off rough sketches but the page is only one side with the other wasted as blank. Unfortunately, there's no commentary included except for short credits.

Frank Miller's film noir inspired style of art is very powerful. The use of light and shadows, stark backgrounds, are fantastic. Flip through a few pages and the Frank Miller style is easily recognisable. Bulk of the artworks are in black and white, while the last few pages (mostly from Hell and Back) are in colour.

The selection is quite random. If you actually search online for Sin City comic art, you'll see that most of the images that turn up are good enough to be featured. A lot of good artworks and pages are included, and a lot are also not included.

Frank Miller's art is fantastic. Between looking at them online versus getting this book, the extras would be the few rough sketches and layout pages.

More About the Author

Frank Miller is one of the seminal creative talents who sparked the current gigantic sub-industry of motion pictures featuring comic book- initiated product. A sub-industry which had become a super-industry. This most profitable aspect of this millennium's film production, now producing an annual flow of box office profits in the Billions of dollars, was launched when Frank Miller's graphic novel re-take on the classic comic book hero, Batman, resulted in an entertainment industry-wide reconsideration of the genre in the deeper and darker vision Miller brought to it.

Miller re-defined the presentation of comic book characters and heroic fiction with his grand-daddy of graphic novels, "The Dark Knight." This revolutionary work
not only kicked off the series of Batman films based on his redefinition, but a craze for such material that has thrown dozens of such heroes into multiple film franchise heaven. Certainly chief among these has been Miller's uniquely classical take on superheroic narrative, "300," and his "Sin City" books, each of which entered motion pictures with historic successes, and each now in Miller's creative phase of achieving its highly-anticipated sequel. Miller's co-direction of "Sin City" has made him one of the hottest
directors... as well as a guiding creative force...for the new genre. Or one might say "super genre."

Miller's latest graphic novel, Holy Terror, is his first original graphic novel in ten years. Join The Fixer, a brand new, hard-edged hero as he battles terror in the inaugural release from Legendary Comics.
