You won't find much new stuff aside from the film, but you will still enjoy seeing the "adventure" on panels. I suggest reading it after not seeing the film for awhile, that way you won't be speaking dialogue before its read. So far I've liked book 2 the best, but 1 & 3 are about equal in value. Thank you Frank Miller!
I'm totally amazed at how closely the movie follows the book, and yet there were subtle differences that make the movie better, and the book more interesting to read. For example, this book references a few things from earlier books, and those references didn't make it into the movie.
The artwork in this is incredible. The story is incredible.
This book, and the other two books have been entirely black and white, except for the pictures of the comic covers in the first few pages, which really doens't count.
I recommend this book to everyone, except those who are turned off by blatant violence, nudity, and language.
Dwight is spending some time with Shellie the waitress when Jackie Boy shows up with a mean drunk and four of his friends. The old Dwight would have had some problems with that situation, but our hero has definitely grown up. Getting Jackie Boy to leave Shellie alone should be the end of it, but Dwight is convinced that the night will not end until Jackie Boy hurts somebody and Dwight takes the responsibility for making sure that does not happen. But when Jackie Boy ends up to Old Town where the ladies ply their trade of prostitution and are the law, "beautiful and merciless," it looks like Dwight's help is not need at all. This, however, turns out to be the biggest mistake of the night and suddenly Dwight's services are most decidedly needed.
It will seem strange to pick out this particular "Sin City" story and say it is a bit over the top, since obviously all of them are. The ending is certainly brutally efficient but at the cost of any notion of elegance, which is usually preferred in a comic noir story such as this. Miller is certainly not experimenting as much in terms of his artwork as he was in the first novel in the series, but the rough way in which Dwight and Jackie Boy's faces are drawn is not to my liking. The full-page panels in this one have Miller's best artwork. This includes Dwight introducing Jackie Boy to the toilet, Dwight jumping into his car, and some of the ladies of Old Town. Still, all things considered, this ends up being a second tier Miller story and Dwight is still a second tier hero, still well worth the reading but not as good as it gets in "Sin City."
This trade paperback collects together the five issues of the original Dark Horse comic series, along with their covers (which actually introduce some color to Miller's artwork). In the back of the book you will find a Gallery of "Sin City" art contributed by the likes of Arthur Adams, Sergio Aragones, Joe Kumbert, Mike Mignola, John Romita, Walter Simonson, and some other artists who present their interpretations of Nancy Callahan, the ladies of Old Town, and other "Sin City" characters.
