Ace. A cracking sequel to the first volume. It is great to see Marv teaming up with Dwight in order to take on the worst stereotype of a beautiful woman. I think that the art is slightly better than the first volume - there are certainly more impressive full page shots. The dialogue is brutal and the themes of grime, inequality, alcoholism and abuse are wonderfully explored. Love it.

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.

Great story with all the hallmarks of a classic crime noir tale. This book along with Sin City 1 and 4 are the best of the Sin City books in my opinion, and you shouldn't miss it, if you fancied the first. You even get to meet Marv again! The artwork is beautiful, and, if anything, I would have liked the format of the book to be a bit bigger. It's on the small side for a book this stunning, but unfortunately a bigger edition won't come cheap.

Perhaps this has rather specialist readers but it was so good to find it available, and it was enjoyed greatly.

Fantastic work, dark and gripping. Frank Miller's art is at its absolute best here. This third edition is a beautiful print - really crisp and with a great cover. Very impressed.

So riveting, I swallowed this in a couple of hours. Very dark and sombre, but has something about it that won't let you put it down! Would highly recommend.
