3.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly as engaging as the original, 27 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Sin City: Dame to Kill for (Paperback)
Frank Miller's original Sin City story was a classic piece of storytelling. It brought noir to mainstream comics in terms of both artwork and storytelling. Miller's striking use of black and white marked a departure from conventional comic artwork. The original also had a very engaging protagonist in the form of Marv.
How does anyone top a work like that? The answer is that you don't. A Dame to Kill For is the "sequel" of sorts to the original. Marv has a guest role but the main protagonist in this story is Dwight. Unfortunately, Dwight is not nearly as engaging as Marv. The story is also not as tight as the original. And the novelty of the Sin City style is no longer there. All in all, not a bad story, but not the classic that the original was.
