    Sin City is the epitome of noir

    Frank Miller delves into a rotten city, where prostitutes rule the streets, politicians are grotesque and despicable, and every good person has his/her bad side. Really bad side. <BR/><BR/>The art is striking - masterful - utilizing aggressive fields of black and white to hint at figure and form. The chiarascuro lighting often outlines only a character's agonized face in an otherwise total blackness, establishing hyperfocus, and creating a sense of isolation that each character seems to inhabit.<BR/><BR/>The main characters are numerous, and they shift throughout the different books of the series, with many recurring characters. My favorite, Marv, the bruiser with a strange sense of honor and violence rolling off him in waves, and Hartigan, the uncorrupted cop who fights for his life against the baleful politicians that run the town. <BR/><BR/>Sin city is an amazing combination of art and storytelling that will suck you deep into the joy and pain (mostly pain) of living a cast-off life in a hard luck town. The visuals are magnificent, and that makes these a must have for any graphic novel library.

    Sin City is a dirty gem wrapped in a story of false promises and corruption. Crime hasn't been so well written in years.

    What a woman could really do to a man.

    A Dame To Kill For shows how much power women can have over men and how they use sex to hypnotize them in to doing what ever they want if they wanted. Dwight, Dwight is a photographer struggling to get by and also haunted by the life he once lived as a raging alcoholic. Life was pretty much ordinary until he receives a call from his ex Ava, who tells him that her husband Damien is raping her and planning to kill her soon. Dwight did not want any thing to do with her but old memories came back and she makes him believe she is still in love with him. Dwight decides to rescue her from Damien with the help of Marv and with the rage in side of him kills Damien with his own bear hands. When she sees her plan had worked she tries to kill Dwight and almost succeeds all because she wanted to inherit Damien¿s fortune all to her self. But Dwight comes back and with a new appearance for pay back. Also you can see how Dwight¿s story interweaves with Marv¿s story and how Marv met Goldie. Written and illustrated by Frank Miller. I really enjoyed this one.
