Amazon Review

Frank Miller's Sin City is visually quite astonishing. A brutal adult noir set in the fictional Basin City, Miller's black and white artwork realises the atmosphere of some weird Depression-era-style future superbly well. Our principal character, Marv, is a giant, as large as he is ugly, who has found some peace, some kindness, some shelter in the arms of a prostitute called Goldie. Goldie, running from someone, scared as hell, needs protection as much as Marv needs a little human kindness. Hauling himself out of the depths of a huge hangover Marv wakes to find Goldie murdered. And revenge is one of the things Marv does best. While the artwork is undeniably fine the story is rather thin in places, and the sound effects come a little too thick and fast. Although not a great comic it is a very good one and, as the first part of the classic Sin City series, the beginning chapter in what has become an essential addition to the adult graphic novel collector's list. --Mark Thwaite --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Good day to everyone who has decided to read my review!
I must say that i really really enjoyed this comic book! I'm not a fan of the word graphic novel, right anywho!!! Yes this comic is really good i thought. I heard people saying it wasn't ol' Frank Miller at his best but i think that it is.
I thought that the art and use in the comic was pretty much spot on. There were a few moments i had to stop and examine the picture with more detail to understand it properly but you realise that every picture is in some way unique!
Also the story in the comic was rather different from what i originally expected it to be. At first you havew a small idea of where the story is going but never actually sure. That's the joy of it. You know the story is heading somewhere but you don't really have a clue until, well you can find that out!
Yeah so its all good i thought! And ofcourse one must remember that Marv is back in there! Good ol' Marv, he's as crazy as ever!!! Give it a read some time! it's fun!!!

It's hard to give a summary of the story without making it sound cheesy and stereotypical with far too much macho action, because the book, and series even, is all of those things but manages to be so much better than all of that. A sleazy photographer takes pictures of an extra-marital affair with which he plans to blackmail the man with - this is our hero. Then the noir element kicks in - the femme fatale enters the bar in a haze of smoke and shadows. She's in trouble, and the photographer called Dwight is the one to save her after all... they used to be lovers. And then we're off, onto a twisting plot through the deadly streets of Sin City to a blood soaked ending.

I read the Sin City series shortly before the first movie back in 2005 and, now that the sequel's out, I thought I'd revisit this one to see if it holds up - and it most certainly does. This is Frank Miller: The Glory Years, when he was writing amazing Batman books, Daredevil stories, and creating his own comic masterpiece with Sin City. He writes and draws these books providing a master-class to all artists who read it: this is how you write a noir comic and make it both high art and bad-ass to boot.

The book is in black and white, and Miller uses light and shadows to full effect in all of the panels. Look at Ava Lord's entrance: first full page silhouette with hazy white smoke at the top, then close up, then look at Dwight's face, then close up still but not making out any features on the shadowy face, then the meeting, then straight into dialogue fresh from the 1930s. It's so cinematic!

The second book in the Sin City series centres around Dwight (he re-appears in The Big Fat Kill and if you've seen the Sin City film, he's played by Clive Owen). It is a gripping tale of betrayal and had me hooked from start to finish (I think I read the whole thing in one sitting).

As for the actual book itself, it is well presented and the black and white pages add to the noir feel of the story. The book is (as with the rest of the series) smaller than the usual graphic novel and is the size of a traditional novel.

If you've read any of the other Sin City books and somehow, not this one, then I recommend it and if you haven't read any of the Sin City books then I'd recommend starting with Volume 1 The Hard Goodbye and then following it up with this.

The themes in these books are adult so don't buy this if you're expecting a comic for a child.

The book really shows what Frank Miller can do with graphics - the artwork is absolutely superb. However he doesn't manage to pull off the Chandleresque style - the story feels like it was written by an adolescent trying too hard. Miller can write (Dark Knight Returns, Electra Lives Again), but the noirish realism of Dame to Kill For exposes a lack of subtlety here. Still, worth it for the art

I thought it would be fun in anticipation for the new Sin City movie A Dame to kill for to read the comic that the movie is based upon. I loved the first movie (Actually bought it today and will try to re-watch it again soon) and I hope that the sequel will be just as good.

Anyway the story in Sin City: A Dame to kill for is quite simple: Dwight is working as a photographer taking pictures of men having affairs with women. He gets contacted after a job by his old flame Ava Lord and she is the dame with a capital D for him. She is miserable in her marriage and scared and of course he will do anything to help her. And of course he enlists Marv to help him. And that’s as much I will give away of the plot.

I found the story very engrossing. It’s gritty, dark, noir and very much brutal to read

This novel is very Noir but totally awesome. It takes you think of old time Vegas, when the mobs ran everything and the 5-0 was used-oil dirty.

The main character Dwight, now there's a poor sucker if you've ever seen one; he's too in love with this Dame, a stone-cold bitch named Ava who time and time again screws him over. This time Ava's gone too far and Dwight is out for revenge.

This novel will keeps you at the edge of your seat all the time; I can't wait for the movie that is scheduled for release this year.
