Speech Bubbles: Comics & Graphic Novels
Comic Fan Talk About Comic Books!

An excellent continuation, travelling even deeper into the bowels of Sin City

  • Aug 24, 2005
After reading the first of the SIN CITY comics, "The Hard Goodbye", and seeing the SIN CITY movie, I went out to pick up "A Dame to Kill For". Once again, I was surprised at how much better it was than your average comic.

The story is set before "The Hard Goodbye" and focuses on Dwight, a photographer who is shocked when his former love, Ava, returns to him. But things are not as they seem. Are they ever in Sin City?

Everyone's favorite character, Marv, re-appears, and numerous reoccuring characters appear for the first time. Frank Miller is at his finest: Sin City has never looked so dark and grimy. The story is great, the dialogue is great, the characters are great. "A Dame to Kill For" is an excellent continuation, and no comic book fan will want to pass it up.

About this book


Because of a shocking ending to the firstSin Citybook, many people wondered how successful Frank Miller could be with future tales of his no-holds-barred city noir. Enter Dwight McCarthy, a clean-living photographer who tries to avoid trouble because he knows what he's capable of. His tactics don't do him much good when a girl from his past (who he can't say no to) shows up and professes her love for him. When he finds out she's in way over her head, it looks as though trouble has found him. What's going to happen? You guessed it: people get hurt.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
