Format: Paperback
Bigger does not prove to be better in Book 7 of Frank Miller's "Sin City" series. "Hell and Back" is a 296-page graphic noir that introduces a new hero in Wallace, an ex-Navy seal who takes it personally when he saves Esther from committing suicide only to have her taken by men unknown for reasons unknown. He does not know why she jumped or even where she lives, but that does not matter. He was kissing Esther when the lights went out and a guy like Wallace tends to take something like that personally. As he says on the title page of this one: "I'm going to kill somebody. Put your clothes on." When we find out who he is saying that to you have to wonder if our hero might not be in over his head on this one.
So, once again we have a hard-boiled guy looking to save a sexy dame, but despite the basic similarity "Hell and Back" comes across a bit differently from Miller's previous graphic novels in the series. It is not just that Wallace has that mop of hair hanging in this face, but that for the most part Miller has cleared the stage of a lot of the familiar characters. The only previous "Sin City" book you need to have read is the previous one, "Booze, Broads, & Bullets," so that when Delia shows up with her blue eyes and blue bodice you know this is not a good sign. Miller is sparse with introducing color into the black & white world of "Sin City," but Delia's blue is far and away the most effective use of color. But the orange of leopard skinned Mariah makes me think maybe the color pink does not occupy the other end of the spectrum here.
"Sin City" actually breaks into full color at one point, when Wallace gets injected with a hallucinogenic drug and starts freaking out.

Format: Paperback
"Hell and Back" is the seventh and final volume in Frank Miller's superb Sin City series and while it's his longest Sin City book it's also his most underwhelming. The plot centres around an ex-Navy SEAL turned artist called Wallace who saves a beautiful woman called Esther from drowning only to see her abducted. Incensed and in love, he sets out to save her from her captors.

In a poetic way, the last Sin City book mirrors the first: Marv and his search for Goldie's killer, a woman he barely knew, and Wallace and Esther's abductors, also a woman he barely knows. They're both chivalrous knights in their own way and their single-minded quests are exciting and mesmerising for their singularity of purpose. But while "The Hard Goodbye" was a blistering and brutal read, "Hell and Back" is Sin City by-the-numbers which, rather than end the series with a bang, just kind of ends.

What is Sin City by-the-numbers? Cool car, protagonist who can fight like a god with a devil-may-care attitude, damsel in distress, lotsa violence (decapitations and the like) and shots of sexy women in revealing outfits (or none at all). Throw in corrupt cops with warped potato-like mugs, the familiar black and white artwork with singular colours like red or blue to offset the noir feel and emphasise a character or trait (usually on the women), and you've got your basic Sin City book.

But is this a bad thing? Generally no. I quite liked "Hell and Back", it's fun, it's enjoyable, it holds up well after years of re-reading, and the full colour section where Wallace is on drugs and sees famous characters (Captain America, Rambo, Hagar the Horrible) or characters Miller created (the Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, and the shot of King Leonides of Sparta with a rifle - damn I want that on my wall!
