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.

This is the third Sin City story to star "Dwight"; the first two were A Dame to Kill For and The Big Fat Kill. You really should read those books before you read this one. This time around, Dwight and Miho are on a mission for the girls of Old Town, which I won't spoil by revealing anything about. Unlike the other Sin City books, which are serialized and have chapters, this is a continuous story that is about 120 pages long. It doesn't take long to read; I read the whole thing during my lunch break. I didn't feel it was quite as good as the other "Dwight" stories, but it is still a fun, quick read. The storyline didn't intrigue me as much this time around, but the artwork is as great as ever. I think most of Frank Miller's fans will enjoy this book.

I disagree with the reviewer that states the ending fizzles. The Sin City story contained within "Family Values" has the biggest build up and surprise ending of all the Sin City stories in my opinion. Miller again successfully makes dislikeable characters and situations a very enjoyable read.

The art in "Family Values" is not Miller's strongest, but he more than makes up for it with excellent narration and storytelling. While it is at times over the top and almost forced, the deadliness of prostitute/assassin, Miho, is a joy to read and watch because she is truly excellent at her job. Dwight's loyalty the girls of Old Town is awe inspiring, considering the fact that he is an admitted murderer, and someone I would never trust. Dwight and Miho work flawlessly together as the two main characters of this book, and anyone who liked "The Big Fat Kill" will get a kick out of this as well. It's violent, entertaining, and keeps you on the edge of your seat until it's done. A great read.

Format: Paperback
Frank Miller has set the bar so high with his "Sin City" series of graphic novels that many fans have been somewhat disappointed by Book 5, "Family Values." While it's true that "FV" does not have the power of, say, "That Yellow Bastard" or "The Hard Good-Bye," that is probably because it doesn't introduce any new anti-heroes into the Sin City universe. Nothing can top the shock and awe of your first introduction to Miller's creations, but Miller also shouldn't be criticized when he fleshes out his creations with additional tales.

"FV" follows Dwight and Miho on a job . . . one that involves their unique specialities. Dwight is the lead man of the tandem -- cool, calm, nasty, and carrying a message. Miho is the enforcer -- her job is to kill anyone who gets in Dwight's way. (And boy, there are a lot of guys who want to play speedbump!)

Like many of Miller's "Sin City" stories, the tale gradually unfolds. The earlier pages are full of foreboding and menace, and the tale builds to a mighty crescendo in the final pages. Along the way the reader revels in Dwight's deadpan humor, Miho's lethal beauty, and Miller's amazing images. You can also get quite a kick out of seemingly dozens of hoodlums getting their comeuppance in the most gruesome of ways.

Far from the best of the "Sin City" novels, "FV" has to be content to be "lesser Frank Miller." That is, of course, a very high compliment. Check it out.

Format: Paperback
After the fast start of THE HARD GOODBYE, the Sin City series seemed mostly able to keep its steam. Although THE BIG FAT KILL was not up to snuff, both A DAME TO KILL FOR and THAT YELLOW BASTARD were solid entries that kept the momentum rolling. Alas, every series hits a dry spell and for Sin City, that dry spell is entitled FAMILY VALUES. Both the story as well as the art work is below the par we have come to expect.

The story is the type of revenge plot that is familiar in the Sin City catalogue. Yet it is not as well developed as others and the characters themselves simply are not as interesting, largely because they are not as fleshed out as they should be. Sure, some of the artwork here is good. But it should be. Frank Miller did not become successful by giving the reader junk. The problem is that, while some of the artwork is solid, some is not only below par but, hate to say it, rather amateurish. This is especially so with respect to some of the portrayals of Miho.

One cannot help but think that Frank Miller was simply going through the motions here and needed a break to regain some fresh ideas. If you plan on reading the whole series, well then of course you will include this book. But if you are only interested in picking the best to spend some time with, pass this one by.

This is basically a revenge story staring Dwight and the lovely Miho. Although Dwight and Miho are not the ones seeking revenge. I really have to say that this book didn't make all that much sense at first, and when I did figure out the point the whole plot was kind of pointless. yeah it doesn't make sense but once you read it you'll know what I mean. The art once again is beautiful and the story will keep you reading all the way to the confusing ending. I would much rather give this three and a half stars but the rating scale is only in whole numbers. Don't get me wrong though, I am a huge fan of these books but this one wasn't that great. Miho's ninja style moves are extremely awsome in this book, but that's just about the only highlight here.
