Sin City: Hell and Backby Frank Miller
Synopses & Reviews
In the Town Without Pity, good men are hard to find. Enter Wallace, a man of mystery. He's a nice guy who's very good at killing people. Out for an evening drive along the beach, he meets the woman of his dreams — and she's trying to kill herself. Why? And who are the shadowy cabal of power brokers who wrench her from his arms? When will all hell break loose?
Comics legend Frank Miller, creator of the groundbreaking Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, pounds out his longest Sin City graphic novel to date, a bare-knuckle barrage of brutal action, dark secrets, and heroic sacrifice. What the hell — it's a love story!
Includes color sections and pinups by a who's who of comics luminaries, including Lynn Varley's first actual comics illustration.
"Varley's strategically placed color, amid Miller's rich black-and-white drawings, accents the book's stylish atmosphere of dread. All told, this is an important addition to the ultra-hard-boiled crime fiction genre." Publishers Weekly
"The dialogue is terse, the artwork is as powerful as it is gritty....[An] outstanding, highly recommended graphic novel..." Internet Book Watch
