This book collects various shorter Sin City stories that were published in various comic books. There are eleven separate stories here, so I will offer brief reviews of all of them.

"Just Another Saturday Night" is a typical Marv story. (4 stars)
"Fat Man and Little Boy" is a short comedy starring small time hoods Klump and Shlubb. (4 stars)
"The Customer is Always Right" was the prologue in the recent Sin City movie. (4 stars)
"Silent Night" is a Marv story with virtually no dialogue. (3 stars)
"And Behind Door Number Three..." is a brief story featuring the girls of Old Town. (3 stars)
"Blue Eyes" introduces the character of Delia. (4 stars)
"Rats" stars a Nazi war criminal. (3 stars)
"Daddy's Little Girl" stars the one-shot character of Johnny. (3 stars)
"Wrong Turn" is a longer Delia story. (4 stars)
"Wrong Track" is a shorter Delia story. (3 stars)
"The Babe Wore Red" stars Dwight and is the best story in here. (5 stars)

So there you have it. "The Babe Wore Red" is so great, that the book is worth getting just for that one story. But all the other stories also have something to recommend them. That is to say, they all have gorgeous art by Frank Miller, even if a few of them are a bit lacking in the plot department. If you are a fan of the other Sin City books, you will probably enjoy this one, too.

Sandwiched between the relatively short Dwight & Miho story "Family Values" and the massive "Hell and Back" (which is supposed to star Johnny Depp in the next "Sin City" movie if the Fates are kind), Book 6 "Booze, Broads, & Bullets" is a collection of "Sin City" short stories from Frank Miller. There are eleven stories, ranging in length from three to two dozen pages and for those fans who do not think that "Sin City" has been as good as when Marv was holding center stage in Book One, "The Hard Goodbye," then the fact that Marv is the main character in two of the stories and a bystander in a couple of others will be greeted with undiminished joy. But there is also the addition of new female character who insists people call her "Blue Eyes" (yes, her eyes are colored blue, but that is not as impressive as what Miller does with her blue dress).

The collection gets off to a great start with "Another Saturday Night," in which Marv must have forgotten to take his medication, because he wakes up in the middle of a mess and cannot remember what is going on. We then shift to a comic little piece in "Fat Man and Little Boy," the nicknames by which a couple of low-rent hit men named Douglas Klump and Burt Shlubb do their business. They have been hired to dump a body, but Mr. Shlubb has designs on the finely crafted boots of the deceased to replace his most embarrassing and blister-inducing of pedal garments, but Mr. Shlubb points out that given their current status in the extralegal community even a minor transgression such as that could be cause fo discipline most severe. "The Customer is Always Right" is the vignette that served as the introduction for the "Sin City" movie, and then Marv comes back for "Silent Night," in which he has some business to take care of on a snowy night.

Miller has defined his own noir nouveau. Sin City is a crime drama, but without the cops. It takes place in an urban world that has no sun or mercy, gritty people in a gritty place. It has heroes of sorts, but you probably don't want to look too closely at the guy you're cheering for. Most of all, it has Miller's stark artwork. Black and white, with no tones in between, every line is as sharp as a knife edge. The images are built from extremes, as are the characters, as are the stories.

The stories vary. The first centers on a homicidal strongman, chasing his prey into a gangland dead end, with emphasis on dead - and he's the good guy. The next comic book in this set of reprints is an enigmatic story with only one spoken sentence, near the end. Within that framework, it uses claustrophobic view angles to suggest multiple betrayals and larger events. It also makes clear that some people are innocent, some times.

Later stories use single spots of color to create characters and to focus attention, a strong visual and narrative tool. The stories are still dark and violent, based on people at their worst. Only that last story changes in tone, a bride who panics on the eve of her wedding and runs. The problem is that she runs into some bad people. She is, however, returned in time to make her vows.

This is what I like about the last decade in comics - innovative artwork and stories that hang together. Others are good, but Miller's Sin City is among the best.

A nice collection of short comics for the Sin City genre. No complex storylines, of course, but very good pieces to set the atmosphere and define this bleak world in more miserable detail. It has some melancholy: it reminds us that Sin City is really damned, despite the efforts of the other comics (anti)heroes.

This is an excellent series. If you haven't read it and are interested, definitely take the plunge.

BE WARNED that the cover art is NOT the one in the picture, but rather the 2010 release of the more minimalistic art. I was VERY disappointed, since I was looking for the art that was pictured. I returned the book.
