About the story: Oneday a girl named Shelley is being harassed in her own home by a guy named Jack, her drunk ex-boyfriend, and his friends. Dwight, who is living with Shelley 'convinces' them to leave and decides to follow them to make sure he doesn't do any more damage. Only Jack turns out to be so dumb to drive into Old Town, a place where the hookers are the law because of the pact they made with the police ('they stay off the police's back, the police stays off their backs'). Jack and his friends wind up dead, upon which they find out Jack is really a cop while examing the body. This will clearly lead to war between the cops and Old Town, leaving it a free warzone for the mob, IF the cops ever find out about Jack. Dwight thinks to have the solution to get rid of the bodies and goes on his way. But things turn out to be not that easy. What follows is an interesting story with several different parties of power and interests, violence, a lot of backstabbing, loyalty and finally an interesting plot-twist.Read more ›
Frank Miller tells a story unlike any other comic artist in the history of comics. The Big Fat Kill takes the story of Basin (Sin) City's prostitues and their power they have over Sin City's "old town" to a whole new level. Miller and the girls of his story make the reader care about filthy immoral prostitutes, murderers, mobsters, and dishonest police officers to a degree that they dnever thought possible. Miller's drawings, while vague, match the storytelling to a degree that is all too rare in comics today.
THe Big Fat Kill is a very well told story that is well worth the read to Sin CIty fans both new and old.
Dwight - Clive Owen
Gail - Rosario Dawson
Miho - Devon Aoki
Shellie - Brittany Murphy
Becky - Alexis Bledel
Jack Rafferty - Benicio Del Toro
Manute - Michael Clarke Duncan
They often say three time's the charm, and that's the blunt truth with Frank Miller and his third installment in most likely the most artistically unique comic book series of all time, "The Big, Fat Kill." That spectacular style of exaggerated artwork and descriptive storytelling Miller is known for is still here, and it's never been better. Dwight McCarthy is back and Miller shows that he is still capable of what he can do, despite what Ava Lord did to him in "A Dame to Kill For." His relationship with Gail is also more focused on. Manute and, of course, Miho are back. Manute is even more sadistic and evil here, and Miho, as she did before, shows the killer born underneath her otherwise cute appearance. Speaking of which, I really like Miho. She just rocks. I've said before, I'll say it again: Miller is a genius. Strongly recommended, in addition to "The Hard Goodbye" and "A Dame to Kill For."
