Thrill a minute,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sin City Volume 4: Sin City, 4. That Yellow Bastard: That Yellow Bastard Bk. 4 (Sin City (Dark Horse)) (Paperback)
What can I say - brilliant.
I chose to review this one and not the others as
a) people who read the series will suspect review the first one only, and
b) this is is my favourite of them all (personally)
Buy all of these books, 1-7, they are all truly great stories. Some people have knocked the graphical style of these books - to me, they are one of the high points - they has a superb style all of their own. Millers dialogue, jokes, slang and story are all superb - great film noir, and add in his sound effects (SPAK! HEFF!) and he really has made this series unique Miller.
Finally, I'm not a fan of comparisons with films - usually graphic novels are changed dramatically (often for the worse) in the movies. Sin City is different. I thought it was a cracking film and is incredibly faithful to the books (although in differing order). Therefore, for once I can say, if you liked the film you'll love the book, as opposed to if you hated the film dont be put off by the book.
Cinematic, thrill a minute series.
