Book Description

22 April 2005
Join Frank Miller as he takes a ride through the mean streets of Sin City for another slice of his beautifully rendered black and white crime noir tales. Both the Mob and the police are starting to try and take over the part of Oldtown, which is currently run by ladies who work in the 'oldest profession'. But our 'hero', Dwight, knows something that the Mob's gotta learn the hard way: sometimes standing up for your friends means killing a whole bunch of people...It includes a five page colour Frank Miller gallery at the front and a black and white gallery at the back featuring the work of some of comics' best known artists such as Mike Mignola, John Romita and Joe Kubert.

The first thing you should realize before you order "The Big Fat Kill" is that it's really a big pro if you read the original Sin City story, and a MUST to read "A Dame to Kill For" prior to this one. See, the main character in this book is Dwight, a man who tries to stay as anonymous as possible because elseways his criminal past may catch up with him. This past that he's hiding from is the story from "A Dame to Kill For", so you should really get that first. It makes it a lot easier to understand a lot of why Dwight's acting the way he is. There's also some conversation about Marv, the main character from the original story. But Marv is not a major factor in this book so reading the original story is really only a pro, not a must.
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.

Yet more madness from Moller. The Sin City volumes are all engrossing. If you enjoyed the film and want a more structured and detailed view of the whole thing then I can heartily recommend all 7 volumes.
