Meet the Author

Frank Miller
Frank Miller is one of the seminal creative talents who sparked today’s onslaught of motion pictures featuring comic book characters & concepts. He single-handedly re-defined the presentation of comic book characters and heroic fiction with his grand-daddy of graphic novels, THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS and his other graphic novels, turned box-office hits, include 300 and SIN CITY (the film version of which Miller co-directed with Robert Rodriguez), proving that success does not always come wrapped in spandex. Miller also created RONIN, and wrote BATMAN: YEAR ONE, BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN, and ALL-STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN THE BOY WONDER, all for DC Comics, and THE BIG GUY AND RUSTY THE BOY ROBOT, HARD BOILED, and MARTHA WASHINGTON, at Dark Horse Comics. The motion picture, THE SPIRIT, marked Miller's solo feature film directorial debut.

    Best One

    The first of the in my opinion best Sin City novels, Marv's story is the best. He's a pure psychopath with an itch of love. This is a great introduction for those new to the City.

    The town without pity will leave its mark on you.

    Basin City is the place. A fictional West Coast burg where the corruption flows downhill from gated estates with Spanish-style roofs to the ghetto gutters. Cynically referred to as Sin City by the noirish archetypes who populate this urban sewer, its barrooms, bordellos and back alleys are slickened by rain, bathed in the harsh light of streetlamps and awash in as much disappointment as blood. Enter Marv: a mountain of a man with a head as thick as a brick, hide as tough as leather and a face as ugly as truth. After spending a single night with a gentle beauty, her tender mercies teach Marv that happiness and hope are possible even in his wretched existence. When he awakens to find her dead and an army of crooked cops beating down the door, Marv knows that his frequent black-outs, volcanic temper and checkered past make him the perfect patsy for a crime he couldn't possibly have committed. Or could he? Pushing doubts aside, Marv vows to avenge his 'goddess' by rooting out the scum who ground his hope under their heel no matter how high he has to go or how many he has to go through. And when he gets his huge mitts on him, 'the hell [he sends] him to will seem like heaven after what [he'll have done] to him.' Sin City is the place and Marv's rampage won't stop even if it all has to burn. Illustrated in evocative chiaroscuro black-and-white and written with dialogue that is the very definition of hard-boiled, Frank Miller's highly stylized orgy of vengeance is uncompromising, brutal and profoundly sad. A legendary and award-winning exploration of varying degrees of evil, this graphic novel's heart of darkness odyssey leaves an indelible and unforgettable impact.
