Sin Citylaunched the long-running, critically acclaimed series of comics novels by Frank Miller. Having worked on some of the most important comic books in the 1980s, including Marvel Comics'sDaredeviland the influential Batman graphic novelThe Dark Knight Returns, Miller was already a heavy-weight cartoonist, but he hit his stride withSin City. It gave him the freedom that doesn't come when working on someone else's characters. While the art isn't as polished as in later books, it is in many ways the quintessential Sin City story: tough-guy Marv finds the girl of his dreams, an incredible beauty named Goldie. But when Goldie is murdered on their first night together, Marv scours the bars and back alleys of Sin City to find her killer in hopes of avenging her death.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

With that opening line, I was drawn into the damn finest comic book I've read yet. I saw the trailer for "Sin City" and thought it looked very cool. I've never been into comic books, really, but I decided to go and check out the first "Sin City" comic to see what I could expect in the film. Before I read it, I was expecting typical noir: men in raincoats and fedoras skulking around streets in the night.    Ha! Boy, was I wrong.    "Sin City" (or as it was …
