iFanboy – Episode #72: Sin City

Show Notes

Frank Miller,
the comic writer and artist was best known for his work in the 1980s on
Daredevil and Batman, but it wasn’t until he moved to Dark Horse Comics
with his noir tale of Sin City, that his career’s work would be
realized.

Spread out over 7 collected books, Sin City is black and white (and
some color every now and then), talk of the underbelly of the darkest,
dirtiest city, where the criminals are just trying to make a living,
the cops are corrupt, the hookers rule the streets and there may just
be only a few decent guys around.

The books of Sin City are:

The Hard Goodbye

A Dame to Kill For

The Big Fat Kill

That Yellow Bastard

Family Values

Booze, Broads and Bullets

Hell and Back

In 2005, the film adaptation of Sin City
was released, directed by Robert Rodriguez and starring Bruce Willis,
Clive Owen, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and many others as the film
was the translation of the comic book, looking very much like the pages
of the art that Miller conceived. This process led to the next movie
adaptation of Frank Miller’s work, 300

    I really like the Term "Damaged Dudes" for messed up guys.

    The real beauty of these is, you can always get them from your public library system, so its not necessary to shell out the $150 to read these classics.

    Cool show, guys.

    I’ll agree with Conor 120% and say Sin City is one of the all time best series in comics – the art is beautiful, the writing is gritty & compelling as anything could be.

    If you haven’t read these, put them on top of your must-read list, they are everything the guys in the show said & more. The highest level of comics, for real.
