Format: Paperback
Sandwiched between the relatively short Dwight & Miho story "Family Values" and the massive "Hell and Back" (which is supposed to star Johnny Depp in the next "Sin City" movie if the Fates are kind), Book 6 "Booze, Broads, & Bullets" is a collection of "Sin City" short stories from Frank Miller. There are eleven stories, ranging in length from three to two dozen pages and for those fans who do not think that "Sin City" has been as good as when Marv was holding center stage in Book One, "The Hard Goodbye," then the fact that Marv is the main character in two of the stories and a bystander in a couple of others will be greeted with undiminished joy. But there is also the addition of new female character who insists people call her "Blue Eyes" (yes, her eyes are colored blue, but that is not as impressive as what Miller does with her blue dress).
The collection gets off to a great start with "Another Saturday Night," in which Marv must have forgotten to take his medication, because he wakes up in the middle of a mess and cannot remember what is going on. We then shift to a comic little piece in "Fat Man and Little Boy," the nicknames by which a couple of low-rent hit men named Douglas Klump and Burt Shlubb do their business. They have been hired to dump a body, but Mr. Shlubb has designs on the finely crafted boots of the deceased to replace his most embarrassing and blister-inducing of pedal garments, but Mr. Shlubb points out that given their current status in the extralegal community even a minor transgression such as that could be cause fo discipline most severe. "The Customer is Always Right" is the vignette that served as the introduction for the "Sin City" movie, and then Marv comes back for "Silent Night," in which he has some business to take care of on a snowy night.

Having read all of the novels before this one, i have experienced his better novels as well as the lesser ones. Booze, broads and bullets is a great read full of Miller's trademark rather sadistic approach. The structure of this book however is different to his others; rather than being just the one story that carries on for the entire book, it is instead a series of small sub-stories all of which involving the lesser characters involve din the earlier novels. Characters such as Fat Man and Little Boy and Lucille have little stories based around them. The stories are good and at times with a bit of humour to them, however the inclusion of these stories seem to be rather out of context. As the other stories tended to link in with one another, these just sit on their own. Perhaps it is good to tie up the loose ends of the smaller characters but again it doesn't feel as if the book flows. All that aside this is still a decent enough read even in spite of its shortness (only 151 pages). I would still recommend its purchase.

This is a GREAT comic book, it goes from raw violence to poetry. Marv's madness, bitches acting as justice, sweet assasins, confused nuns, in this book you can find all kinds of people and ways of telling a story. Some of the stories share characters, characters used in other Sin City books appear as background or main characters in this one. It really gives you the feeling that (Ba)Sin City exists. And all this drawn with the very personal style Frank Miller uses, pure black and white with sometimes a touch of colour. I really love this book, strong drawing and VERY good plots will make you read it again and again.

Please note that the listing is for the 3rd edition of the book, and the covers do not match those in the photographs. If you are looking to collect the a matching set, the 2nd and third covers are extremely different.
