Miller decided to abandon any subtlety with a gore filled comic book. Miller's dialogue would seem juxtaposed to the gore and guts of the story, but Darrow's art gives it an ironic meshing. Hard Boiled goes crazy with fantastic splash pages of dystopian orgy, the protagonist falling apart from being riddled with bullets, and guns the size of small children, making this a very enjoyable, if bizarre, read.
I bought the book expecting detective/gangter noir-ish reading. It is not! The artwork is the best feature...it reminds me of looking for Waldo. Very detailed. The story line is confusing and robots that think they're human has been done over again. I'm a BIG fan of Frank Miller and I would buy this book again just because of that, but I was disapointed.
