Criminals have always called the shots in Sin City, whether bootleggers, gamblers, or politicians. But ever since the first dame set up shop in Old Town, those side-streets have been run by the women who walk the night. It's been a delicate truce, but now there's a messy body and the mob's looking to reclaim those licentious streets. They're going to have to put down a tight band of dangerous women and a guy named Dwight to do it.

While “Sin City: The Big Fat Kill” is a good graphic novel, it is overshadowed by its excellent predecessors. As a fan of the first two, it's disappointing, but not enough to prevent me from reading further.

The appeal of Sin City, for me at least, has been its focused stories that explore its shattered main characters, mirrored by a revolting town, and drawn in a style that shows the black and white nature of the created world. In the “Big Fat Kill” Sin City is still as interesting a setting as ever. The town reeks of corruption and bleeding secrets and the more noble sins are the saints in such a Gomorrah.

We follow Dwight again, but unlike in his first appearance, where we watch his character’s descent into a chaotic void of murder, he changes less here. We do find him where the last narrative left him, but it is starting to feel strained. In fact, in most of the fights, he does little or needs to be saved, and the whole issue at the heart of this story is his fault. It lessens his autonomy as a character, where in the first novel he made some hard, but great, choices. It also detracts from the story since its main voice feels like a side character.

The story also suffers from a glut of explanation. The first two Sin Citys had just enough text. Multiple pages could be taken up with a few striking images and then a side scroll of text. Here, the side scroll comes every few pages instead of every chapter and the framing and art are not as engaging. There are still fantastic images throughout this piece, but none of them are as haunting or memorable as some in the first two. The panels and framing are still on par and the contrast still mesmerizing, but instead of pushing the style even further, this feels like a step back

Perhaps the biggest issue lies with the story. The first two were pulpy examinations of damaged psyches. Here the events are interesting but hold little depth. A problem occurs that the cast has to solve, and that is the extent of it. There is no look into the heart of darkness that is the world or how a person can shatter like a window. It is a straightforward adventure. Nothing more.

If you liked the first two Sin Citys or love the style, give this a shot. The style is still there and the action panels are kinetic. Unlike the first forays into Sin City I can not recommend this to casual comic fans. There is just too little here if you’re not already invested. ( )

I previously mentioned my love of the Sin City film and how it was what spurred me on to read the books. This was by far my favorite plot in the movie, and indeed, the comic delivers in spades. All the humor, all the suspense, and all the ridiculously noir proclivities are here in spades. Dwight is back, as are Gail, Shellie, and deadly little Miho. Old Town is in trouble, and it's up to Dwight and the lovely girls to save the day.

Dwight, now dating Shellie, is not amused when she gets some rather boisterous visitors. When violence is threatened Dwight moves to teach them a lesson, and happens to follow them all the way to Old Town. Sure enough, the girls are onto the trouble these men represent and Miho makes quick work of them. It's only then that Dwight realizes one of them is a cop... murdered in Old Town. The tenuous peace between the girls and the city is threatened, and either way, blood will be spilled.

This comic is a quick read with plenty of twists and turns. The humor is on point, and black as ever, and through the bloodshed [author: Frank Miller]'s writing shines. The art is gorgeous, and even knowing the outcome I had trouble putting this volume down until the last bullet hit the floor. The adaptation was great, and this is one rare time when whether you read or watch you will love it all. Definitely my favorite volume. Love Dwight. Love his warrior woman. Love The Pits for all they are. How often you get to see a man turned into a Pez dispenser, anyway? ( )

"Deadly little Miho. She'll cut you quick. She'll kill you quiet. You won't feel a thing, not unless she wants you to."

Great characters, great writing! I couldn't put it down! ( )

This book was rolled in to the second movie. Very enjoyable as always. Top notch writing. ( )

Frank Miller's gritty noir series continues with Dwight coming to the aid of the girls of Old Town when they unknowingly kill someone they shouldn't (but he was such an ass, you're not sad to see him go).

Definitely a fun read, and it fits the crime noir setting with both it's beautifully striking black and white imagery, heavy contrast (both visually and morally) and holdover dialogue from the 40s. ( )
