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..

I highly recommend it overall. I got mine for the 60 dollar priced point. A bargain at that rate.
It makes the ABSOLUTE DARK KNIGHT seem small.
It is very well-made, opens flat to see entire pages without damaging the spine or binding, plus it contains all the Sin City stories.
P.S. This book is extremely heavy. It would collapse a TV tray.
The stories, of course, are classic Frank Miller noir.
